Patients who have recently undergone cosmetic dental treatment with a reputable dentist are most likely aware of the marvels modern dentistry can accomplish for a smile. Whether opting for tooth-colored dental fillings, dental implants, dental bonding, or simple whitening, advancements in dentistry have helped many patients enjoy beautiful, natural, healthy looking smiles to replace a grin which leaves something to be desired. Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental care which focuses on the aesthetics of your smile. Park Ridge cosmetic dentists, Dr. Maria Loukas and Dr. Thanasi Loukas, have provided beautiful porcelain veneers to plenty of patients, offering terrific results.
Are you Happy with your Smile?
When you deem a part of your smile as unattractive, it really doesn’t matter what others say. You are likely to feel self-conscious to a point that your quality-of-life is diminished. This is worth your attention. Deciding on the right cosmetic dental treatment depends on the nature and severity of your dental issues. Minor stains are easily enough remedied with professional teeth whitening. If your stains are too severe to respond to whitening, or you have minor chips, surface cracks, odd spaces, and/or slight misalignments, veneers might make the best solution. Porcelain veneers are hand-crafted to the exact specifications of your ideal tooth shape and size. Once wafer-thin veneers are bonded in place, you will have a blemish-free smile you will feel proud to flash. The success of porcelain veneers does rely on strong, healthy supporting teeth to start with. If you harbor dental disease or severe damage appropriate restorative treatment is prudent before cosmetically improving your smile.
Porcelain Veneer Benefits
Porcelain veneers are often referred to as “the instant smile makeover” because of the wide range of applications and relatively simple placement with the cosmetic procedure. After preparing your teeth by removing a minimal amount of enamel , Dr. Loukas will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a trusted dental lab to fabricate the veneers. The high-quality material used to manufacture your veneers is tinted to match your specifications. Porcelain is semi-translucent and layered to reflect light in the same manner as tooth enamel. Depending on your needs and goals, we may recommend little or no prep veneers which require significantly less time.
