The pervasiveness of Hollywood has created a demand for that perfect smile
Thanks to Hollywood and its image of continual gorgeous looks and special effects, beauty trends are shifting to the ‘effortless look’ and this is why veneers are one of the most requested cosmetic dental procedures of our time.
Stars such as the boys of One Direction and the Duchess of Cambridge are just some of the celebrities who have contributed to the rise in cosmetic dentistry. Especially among young men who see how popular a good-looking smile can be.
At Lincoln Park Smiles in Chicago our dedicated team of dentists are available to help you achieve that healthy, white smile of your dreams…
Porcelain veneers are an effective and wonderful way to achieve a number of cosmetic dental issues. Veneers are tooth-colored porcelain that fit over your teeth. Porcelain veneers can resolve a number of issues:
- Mask chips, cracks and worn teeth
- Permanently whiten and brighten a discolored smile
- Straighten an asymmetrical smile without the need for orthodontic work
The benefits of porcelain veneers are that they are strong and stain resistant and they are usually impervious to decay. However your natural teeth are not. If normal dental hygiene is not observed serious dental problems can arise because bacteria can become trapped between the veneer and the natural tooth.
Dental Hygiene with Porcelain Veneers…
Maintaining good dental hygiene with veneers is simple. In fact it is the same as if you did not have veneers. It is always important to maintain a healthy regime at home. This came be done with just a few simple things:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice a day
- Flossing at least once a day, usually a night.
- Dental check –up: it is recommended that you visit the dentist at least once every six months for a check-up to make sure your dental health is at its best.
Our range of dental veneers include: prep veneers (lumineers) as well as other more conservative veneers. When you visit us at Lincoln Park Smiles is Chicago our dental professionals are able to design dental veneers to suit your individual mouth and complement your smile.
Other options include porcelain crowns which are similar to veneers and have much the same function. Porcelain crowns are used to cap or cover damaged teeth with a permanent prosthetic cap. This procedure allows the tooth to be strengthened and prevent the tooth from being further damaged or weakened. As well as improving the function of your tooth it also has the added bonus of improving the look of your smile.
Porcelain Crowns are used to:
- Strengthen teeth that have suffered from extensive damage
- Reinforce teeth that have undergone root canal treatment
- Attach to dental implants as a prosthetic tooth replacement
At Lincoln Park Smiles in Chicago our dedicated team have invested in advanced technology, design and manufacturing to provide you with same day restorations. And unlike traditional restorative cosmetic treatments that can take weeks to complete our special technology allows our dentists to design and install caps in a single session!
