Veneers can be applied in one easy appointment here at Lincoln Park Smiles, so it has never been a better time to beautify your smile
Here at Lincoln Park Smiles located in Chicago, we have special interest in beautifying our patients’ smiles. Our most popular cosmetic treatment is our veneers, which can be placed over the teeth in one easy appointment. We will begin by evaluating your teeth so that we can make sure you do not require crowns or orthodontic treatment. Once we are assured that you are a suitable candidate for veneers we will be able to recommend you one of our two types, including no-prep veneers (lumineers) and standard, conservative porcelain veneers.
Lumineers take two appointments to install, one to take a precision mould and the other to install your lumineers. Dr. Jack at Lincoln Park Smiles will consult with you about your desired color and smile shape, which can even be altered to your desires if you would like to elongate certain teeth for a more refined or unique smile. During our conservative veneer procedure we will roughen the surface of your teeth to enable the secure fastening of your veneers. Your veneers will be created using our CEREC technology which was specifically created for quick and customized ceramic or porcelain restorations.
Veneers can spark a huge difference when it comes to your smile…
There are 8 main ways through which veneers can invigorate your smile:
1. Banish your discolored smile
First and foremost veneers are a cosmetic treatment, as they can recreate your smile and conceal discrepancies. One of the main things that our patients wish to cover is discoloration which can be caused by coffee and other consumables.
2. Improve your mouth function
A straighter smile can enhance the function of your smile as the top arch will fit more cohesively with the lower.
3. Look up to 10 years younger!
Studies have shown that veneers can improve your overall appearance, even how youthful you look.
4. Conceal asymmetrical teeth
Veneers can be used to conceal slightly crooked teeth, although it is important to remember that they cannot be used as a replacement for orthodontic treatment. Your dentist at Lincoln Park Smiles will evaluate your teeth during your initial consultation to determine this.
5. Fill in an unwanted gap between your teeth
Gaps between the two front teeth or bottom teeth are extremely common. Luckily Lincoln Park Smiles are experts in cosmetic dentistry, which means that we’ll be able to conceal this gap with our high quality veneers.
6. Strengthen your teeth enamel
Veneers are thin shells which encase the tooth, and because of this they can in turn protect some of your enamel. Although your teeth will most likely need to be roughened before the application you will still maintain most of your enamel.
7. Conceal the effects of bruxing or elongate your teeth
Bruxism, or grinding your teeth as its most commonly known, can wear down your teeth into small little stubs. This can look very esthetically displeasing which is why many patients choose to conceal these shorts stubs with veneers. If you grind your teeth as a habit it’s important to receive treatment before receiving your veneers because this can reduce the length of time they last.
8. Improve the shape of your teeth
In some cases people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their mamelons – which are small ridges on the upper and lower front teeth. These can be hidden using veneers or lumineers depending on your preference.
Thanks to CEREC technology, at our dental practice we can offer Same Day Smiles which means that you may be able to receive your veneer restoration in a single appointment!
