Dental Veneers in Palos Heights, IL

Dental veneers are thin shells placed on the teeth’ front surface to hide any flaws and make the teeth appear straight and even. If you have crowding issues, chipped teeth, worn down teeth, or even areas of staining, dental veneers could be a great solution for you! Dental veneers are customizable, meaning that the shade and shape of the veneers can be adjusted to give you your dream smile. Veneers are durable and with proper care, and they can last for many years before needing replacement or repairs.

Before placing your veneers, we may have to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for them. We’ll then make an impression on your teeth so that we can custom-build your veneers. When they are finished, you’ll return to our office, and we’ll bond them to the front of your teeth. We will then make any final adjustments to create your new look.

  • How do dental veneers work?

    Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells bonded to teeth’ front surfaces. Depending on the type of veneers, a small amount of enamel may need to be removed from the teeth beforehand. Once attached, veneers can conceal imperfections and adjust tooth alignment. Altering their thickness can also improve spacing. The application process involves preparing the teeth and securing the veneers with a robust dental adhesive.

  • What types of dental veneers are available?

    There are two main types of dental veneers: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Composite veneers are made in the dentist’s office using tooth-colored resin and are applied directly to the teeth. They are usually less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.

    Porcelain veneers are custom-made from porcelain to fit your teeth. They are typically made in a laboratory and then sent to the dentist’s office for application. Due to the stronger material, porcelain veneers generally last longer, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as dark stained teeth or teeth incorrectly positioned.

  • How long do dental veneers last?

    Our veneers are made of high-quality material designed to last. On average, most veneers last 10-15 years. However, your dental veneers can last more than 20 years with exceptional dental care. If your dental veneers need to be repaired or replaced, please contact our office right away so we can get you smiling again.
