What to Expect from Receiving Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain designed to mask cosmetic imperfections. These shells are bonded to the front surface of teeth in order to create a new smile. If you choose to receive dental veneers form your Park Ridge dentists, Dr. Maria Loukas and Dr. Thanasi Loukas, you will begin with a thorough assessment of your oral health to determine if veneers are right for you. Next, your Park Ridge dentists will take impressions of your teeth and work with you to select the perfect shade for your new veneers.
After the impressions are made of your teeth, they will be sent to a dental laboratory, which will use the impressions to create your custom set of veneers. Once the veneers arrive at the dental office, they will be examined to ensure that they fit properly and then bonded permanently into place after some tooth preparation. Tooth preparation involves the removal of small amounts of enamel so that the veneers will attach properly. In some cases, patients may be able to receive no-prep veneers and avoid tooth preparation altogether.
Benefits of Receiving Dental Veneers
If you choose to enhance your smile with porcelain veneers, you can experience a total smile transformation at a remarkable pace. The process will typically take about two dental visits, after which time you will be the proud owner of a brand new smile. Veneers are especially useful in transforming smiles because of their versatility. They can improve the appearance of many imperfections including misalignment, teeth stains, gaps, damage, and pitting.
