Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to achieve the smile of your dreams, and the team at Dental Care of South Elgin are South Elgin’s experts.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-crafted shells that are placed on the fronts of your teeth. They provide a fresh, new layer of enamel that looks natural and is almost impossible to detect. Porcelain veneers are also resistant to common stains such as coffee, tea, and cigarettes.
The process, from start to finish
CONSULTATION: First, we'll look at your smile, talk with you about your desired results, show you your options, and walk you through the application process. Porcelain veneers can correct many issues, such as:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth
- Gaps in teeth
FABRICATION: After choosing porcelain veneers, we’ll take a mold of your teeth and send it to a lab to fabricate a customized set of veneers for you. This process takes a week or two.
BONDING: To apply the veneers to your teeth, we place them with water or glycerin. We do final adjustments for color and fit, and adhere your veneers to your teeth with a special cement.
CARE: Your teeth may feel a bit sensitive for a few weeks after application, but they are easy to care for; simply floss and brush them daily with a nonabrasive toothpaste.
There are many ways to achieve the smile you've always dreamed of, and we are trained and experienced in all of them.
