Porcelain Veneers

In mid-century Hollywood, many movie stars elected to improve their smiles by having all their teeth pulled and replaced with nice, shiny, pearly-white dentures. After years of heavy smoking and inadequate brushing, the most attractive features of their youth dimmed and dulled, putting their careers in jeopardy.

Fortunately, we now have some alternatives to this type of drastic makeover, and one of them is porcelain veneers. People from all walks of life are having their teeth resurfaced with these thin porcelain covers. It is a quick way to deal with many minor tooth defects, such as:
  • Discoloration that won't respond to tooth whitening
  • Small chips and cracks
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Slight crookedness or misalignment

Porcelain is semi-translucent, allowing the veneer to mimic closely the attributes of tooth enamel. Your dentist will choose a shade to match your natural shade of white.

Only one visit
Because we have the CEREC system for milling porcelain, we can make your veneers and bond them permanently to your teeth in just one visit. Other dentists require two visits. We have a chairside computer monitor where you can see your own teeth and how they will look with their new front surfaces. Using our digital camera and the software of the CEREC system, we plan, design, and manufacture your customized veneers here while you watch.

If you are looking for smile improvement options in the Chicago area, you can find them here at the Colonial Dental Group. Please contact us today to set up an initial consultation.
