What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers provide a highly effective, lasting treatment option for making over the shape and color of your smile. There are several types of dental veneers and Chicago area cosmetic dentist Dr. Brent Engelberg will work with you to determine the most suitable option for your dental health and cosmetic goals.

What To Expect What Is The Process For Minimal Prep Veneers?

Similar to porcelain veneers, minimal prep dental veneers are designed to cover the front and sides of the teeth and made from an ultra-thin, high-quality ceramic material. This material will reflect light much like your natural teeth, providing results that will blend with the rest of your smile and look as if they have always been there.

What Is The Process For Minimal Prep Veneers?

The process will begin with a consultation where Dr. Engelberg or Dr. Mullarkey will provide digital images of expected results and create a personalized plan of treatment. Digital impressions will be taken to be used in fabricating your custom dental veneers, which will be sent to ceramist Brad Jones who will make each one by hand.

For this type of dental veneer, only a small amount of tooth surface needs to be removed to allow for the attachment of your veneers. In some cases, your dentist may be able to attach the veneer without removing any tooth structure at all.

At the final visit, your custom dental veneers will be fit, adjustments for comfort will be made as needed, and they will be permanently secured to your teeth for years of beautiful smiles.
