Veneers in Chicago, IL
Almost everyone wishes they had a more beautiful smile. While some people are lucky enough to be blessed with a gorgeous smile, other people have to seek cosmetic dentistry in order to achieve their dream look. And what better way to improve your smile then with dental veneers from Lincoln Cosmetic Dentistry?
Veneers are thin shells that are typically made from a tooth-colored material, like porcelain. They are applied to the front part of a tooth to improve the appearance of your smile.
Veneers are a great option if you are looking to hide these common dental imperfections:
- Discolorations and stains
- Chips and cracks
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Teeth that are too short
They are also a great and easy way to get the straighter smile you’ve always wanted without ever needing to wear braces! Not to mention, for teeth that are stained and discolored and don’t respond to professional whitening, another way to get a perfect white smile is with veneers.
You'll need to come in for a consultation, and once we determine that veneers are right for you, the next step is to prepare your teeth for the procedure. This means some tooth enamel will need to be shaved down to accommodate the added volume of the veneers. Once teeth have been prepared, impressions will also need to be made. These dental impressions will be sent to a laboratory, which they will use to create your very own set of custom-made veneers.
Once the veneers are made, they are ready to be placed. Dr. Katherine Gerginis will apply them to the front of each tooth using a special dental cement. This cement will need to be hardened with a laser in order to permanently adhere the veneers to your teeth. With one good polish, your smile is now ready to go. In just three visits, you could finally have the smile you have dreamed of!
