Are your teeth stained? Do you have a chipped tooth that diminishes your confidence? Our Chicago dental veneers experts can help you have your beautiful smile back!

Northbrook Dentist is a full-service dental clinic that is dedicated to taking care of your oral health. We provide various treatments and dentistry services that address different issues affecting the function, comfort, and appearance of your teeth. Applying dental veneers is one of these treatments.

Veneers cover the front surfaces of your teeth to effectively conceal cosmetic imperfections, like stains, chips, and cracks. It has become a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment with several available types. So before you decide on getting one, it’s best to consult with a dental expert.

Veneers are mostly irreversible, so being well-informed is important prior to getting them. Feel free to contact us during business hours for a more comprehensive guideline on how veneers work and the proper ways of caring for them.

What Are Veneers For?

Veneers are cosmetic in nature, meaning they are not used to address the root cause of oral problems. However, they are effective in addressing different aesthetic issues with your teeth.

If you acquire our Chicago dental veneer services, we can help conceal several cosmetic issues, including the following:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth or diastema
  • Teeth stain or discoloration
  • Minor teeth misalignment
  • Teeth that are too small

Dental veneers are also used to replace damaged enamel. Brushing too hard and consuming highly acidic food and drinks can wear down your teeth’s natural enamel. And, unfortunately, enamel doesn’t grow back. So this is where veneers can help. They can cover your teeth as a replacement for the lost enamel.

However, there are a couple of things that you should keep in mind:

Veneers cannot replace all orthodontic treatments.

If you only have a minor orthodontic problem, veneers can be enough to camouflage that. However, they won’t actually change the position of your teeth, so your problem still exists underneath. This means that while your teeth look fixed or normal on the outside, they are actually still gapped or crooked.

Also, some people have issues that mere veneers cannot resolve. If this is your case, we will be offering other dental treatment that is best for you.

Veneers are not always a viable option due to existing oral health issues.

Since veneers are cosmetic dentistry treatments, they are not always the best option if you have other oral health problems. They are only applicable if you don’t have extensive cavities or any gum disease. Otherwise, we advise that you should first have these issues treated before getting cosmetic treatments like veneers.

Difference Between Veneers and Crowns

Dental veneers cover the front surface of teeth alone. They are only used for cosmetic purposes. This means that they can improve the appearance of your smile but can’t repair or strengthen your teeth.

Dental crowns, on the other hand, can cover the entire structure of your teeth. This can effectively strengthen your teeth and add a layer of protection. So while dental crowns can also enhance the look of your smile, they’re primarily used to treat teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma.

Depending on your situation, both options can be well provided by Northbrook Dentist. Set an appointment with one of our dentists at your earliest convenience. We’d love to assess your teeth as soon as possible!

Types of Veneers

As a comprehensive dental care provider, we make sure that we offer Chicago dental veneers in all available types. Included in the types of veneers that you may get are the following:

Composite veneers

These are resin-based composite veneers made from the same material that is used for dental bonding. They are effective for concealing any mild cosmetics issue.

For composite veneers to fit, our dentist will first clean, reshape, and overall prepare your teeth. After the preparation, the dentist will bond and sculpt the composite veneer, effectively adjusting its color to look natural in your mouth.

The dentist will then use a light that will dry and harden the veneers. Once they’re hard, they will be smoothened and polished to look and feel like real teeth.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are customized to best fit your dental anatomy. This makes them efficient in addressing many cosmetic imperfections in your teeth.

During the first appointment, the dentist will first need to remove some enamel from your teeth. This will be used to create a mold which will be sent to the laboratory where your porcelain veneers will be custom-made. Removing some enamel will also roughen the surface of your teeth, which will help the veneers stay in place.

While your permanent veneers are being made in the laboratory, we can place temporary ones in the meantime. On your next visit, our dentist will then assess the fit and color of the porcelain veneers. Necessary adjustments will be made. And once everything is good, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth.

No-prep veneers

No-prep veneers are like porcelain veneers in the sense that they’re also custom-made for your teeth. However, non-prep or minimal-prep veneers are less invasive. Because while they still require some enamel removal, it’s significantly less than the enamel removal necessary with traditional porcelain veneers.

To know if no-prep veneers are right for you, schedule an appointment with our dentist today. We’ll assess your teeth and help you decide which type of veneer best suits your needs.

Removable veneers

These are also referred to as pop-on veneers or snap-on veneers. They can hide your teeth’s imperfections as well. But unlike traditional veneers, they can be taken out anytime. However, removable veneers have only been available for a few years. Set an appointment so we can assess if they will be good for you.
