Dental veneers are thin custom-made pieces of porcelain that are affixed over the facial surfaces of your teeth. Veneers ensure your smile is symmetrical by addressing the shape and size of your teeth. In addition, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, meaning you can drink coffee or tea and maintain a gorgeous smile.
There are multiple reasons people get veneers, including:
Dr. Atcha crafts your veneers using the latest technology and highest-quality porcelains, so you can walk away knowing your teeth are perfect.
The staff at New Teeth Chicago Dental schedule a preliminary consultation for Dr. Atcha to evaluate your oral health and also to address any concerns you may have since once your tooth is prepared for a veneer, the process is irreversible.
Dr. Atcha can use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the tooth preparation and veneer placement. The first step is for him to minimally trim the enamel on your tooth to the thickness of the veneer that will be placed on your tooth. He then uses a shade guide to determine which porcelain color matches best with the surrounding teeth.
Following that, he takes impressions of your teeth and gums, which he uses to fabricate your veneer. Once your veneer is ready at the second dental visit, Dr. Atcha bonds the veneer to your tooth.
You’ll need to take care of your veneers just as you would your regular teeth. By brushing and flossing regularly, not chewing on hard objects such as fingernails, and having semiannual dental checkups, your veneers can last from 10 to 15 years, if not longer.
If you’re looking to enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence through the use of veneers, then call New Teeth Chicago Dental today, or schedule an appointment online.
