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. Porcelain veneers are a very popular dental cosmetic procedure; we highly recommend veneers for our patients who want a long-lasting, quick, beautifully natural-looking smile transformation.
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, and includes treatment planning, preparation, dental impression, custom crafting and bonding. Our Glen Ellyn dental team is highly experienced with porcelain veneers, and we want to help you achieve a beautiful smile that you are happy to show off!
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The cost of dental veneers varies depending on how many veneers you would like to complete your treatment. We will be able to provide an accurate cost summary with an in-person consultation with our dentists, so call our Glen Ellyn office today to book your dental veneer consultation! We also provide simple financing options for your convenience.
Are Veneers Permanent?
Dental veneers aren’t permanent, but with good at-home care and oral hygiene, ceramic porcelain veneers can last up to 15 or even 20 years! If you brush and floss daily and visit your dentist regularly, your veneers can last many years before needing to be replaced.
