An Excellent Choice for a Beautiful and Elegant Smile Transformation
If stained, crooked, chipped or cracked teeth are keeping you from showing off your smile, it might be time to consider dental veneers or Lumineers. A porcelain or dental veneer is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures to quickly enhance patient smiles.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for a beautiful, elegant smile transformation. They are custom made, wafer-thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth, and can dramatically improve the shape, size and color of your existing teeth. Because they are made of porcelain, they are quite durable and resistant to staining, unlike composite resin. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for 15 years -- compared to composite veneers, which typically last 4-8 years.
Porcelain veneers offer the appearance of a completely new smile without the need for more extensive procedures, such as extractions and dental implants. If you wish to rejuvenate your worn down, chipped or discolored teeth, contact us at Dental Care of Glen Ellyn to see if porcelain veneers are a good option for you!
How Do Veneers Work?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are made to enhance the tooth’s appearance. We make our veneers out of natural-looking ceramic to enhance the appearance of your teeth. The veneers are bonded to the surface of your enamel to enhance the size, shape, color, and quality of your teeth. The process for receiving veneers typically requires two or more visits to our office. The process of receiving veneers includes the diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding. However, our team has years of experience with veneers and we want to help you achieve a perfect smile.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The cost of your veneers can vary, depending on how many you veneers you need to complete your procedure. With the varying cost, it can be difficult to provide a cost summary without a consultation with our dentists. However, we have financing options for your convenience.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Veneers aren’t permanent. However, ceramic veneers do last between up to 20 years. With great at-home care and dental hygiene, they can last many years before needing to be replaced.
