The Benefits of Choosing Dental Veneers

Did you know that there are 19 types of smiles? Researchers at UC-San Francisco discovered 19 individual smiles that humans display, and sorted them into two categories: polite “social” smiles and sincere “felt” smiles. You have a smile for nearly every situation! But no matter what type of smile you show, your teeth are the focal point. Do you want more beautiful, symmetrical teeth for improved confidence and physical appearance? Keep reading to learn how dental veneers from your Grant Park dentist offer incredible benefits for a truly dramatic smile upgrade.

Dr. Abbey Lee at Smiles 4 Grant Park offers cosmetic dentistry treatments to help patients attain a more aesthetically-pleasing smile. Professional whitening, dental bonding, and dental veneers are just some of the ways that Dr. Lee can improve the look of your already healthy, strong smile. Call us to schedule a cosmetic consultation, and learn more about our treatments.

Veneers treat a variety of issues.

Crafted from slim pieces of medical-grade ceramic, dental veneers are placed over the visible area of your front teeth. They can cover a variety of aesthetic issues in otherwise functional, strong teeth. Veneers are usually recommended for patients who suffer from teeth that are:  

  • Minimally chipped or showing fracture lines
  • Unevenly spaced, with crowding or gaps between teeth
  • Discolored
  • Deeply stained from the inner tooth, a stain which cannot be treated by professional whitening
  • Misshapen, and over or under-sized teeth

Veneers are long-lasting.

Once placed, dental veneers can last up to 15 or 20 years before needing to be replaced. The porcelain used to make dental veneers is impenetrable to stains, which means you can maintain a whiter smile without avoiding color-rich foods or keeping up with professional whitening treatments. However, while veneers are stain-resistant, your surrounding teeth can still discolor.

Veneers maintain strong natural teeth.

Our practice is proud to offer a variety of veneers, some of which are minimal or “low-prep” veneers. These types of veneers remove less enamel during the placement process, and are a great option for those patients with more mild cosmetic issues, who may be concerned about significant enamel removal.

However, it’s important to note that even traditional veneers maintain strong, stable teeth. Though enamel must be removed during the placement process, this does not hurt or damage the tooth. As long as veneers are maintained, the tooth will be able to function just as healthily and normally as before.

Veneers look remarkably natural.

Veneers reflect the same glossy finish of surrounding teeth, offering an extremely natural-looking cosmetic result. Dr. Lee will work with you to determine the shade of your veneers, so you can attain a whiter, but still natural-looking, smile.

Veneers can be placed in just two appointments.

A totally new smile through porcelain veneers can come together in just a couple appointments with Dr. Lee.

In the initial appointment, Dr. Lee takes 3D digital images with an intraoral camera to aid the dental laboratory technicians during the fabrication process. Once the veneers are made and sent back to our Grant Park office, Dr. Lee will prep your teeth and place the veneers. Just two appointments are needed for a 20-year smile!Want to know more about the benefits of dental veneers and receive a personalized treatment estimate?
