Porcelain Veneers in Arlington Heights, IL
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells applied on the front-facing portion of a tooth. They are about as thin as a fingernail and thus do not require very much enamel removal. Patients rarely experience any pain or discomfort during the porcelain veneer procedure. In as few as two appointments, you can improve your smile with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who have dental blemishes they want to conceal but are also in otherwise good dental health. If there are underlying concerns that could be contributing to the development of your cosmetic concerns, Dr. Engelberg will need to address those concerns first before offering you cosmetic dentistry options. We want to ensure that our patients have a strong foundation of healthy teeth and gums to support their porcelain veneers for a lifetime.
Dental concerns that can be treated using porcelain veneers include:
- Misshapen teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Stained teeth
- Other small dental damages
The veneer is placed on top of the affected tooth to conceal cosmetic blemishes and restore the uniformity of your smile. Depending on your needs and goals, you can get one veneer or a full mouth of veneers. Porcelain veneers in combination with one of our other cosmetic dentistry services could be exactly what you need to achieve a complete smile makeover. It’s important to note that veneers cannot be whitened once placed on your teeth. If you want to lighten your smile, we recommend that you do this before you pursue porcelain veneers.
