Q: What problems can veneers fix?

A: Veneers are designed to help improve a wide variety of imperfections, including chipped and worn out teeth, misshapen teeth, stained teeth, or teeth that have large, uneven gaps between them. 

Q: What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

A: Veneers are made from porcelain because this is a strong, long-lasting material that resembles the look and feel of natural teeth. Plus, porcelain is a material that doesn’t stain easily so it is a great material to withstand against the wear and tear of your everyday life. In order for veneers to be placed successfully onto each tooth, it’s often necessary to first remove a thin layer of the patient’s natural tooth. With porcelain veneers, only a minimal layer of natural tooth is required to be removed prior to placing the veneer. 

Q: What are the advantages of dental veneers?

A: We’re happy you asked! Veneers in Elk Grove Village provide a natural-looking solution to damaged teeth, something that many strive for on their search for smile restoration. Gum tissues also tolerate porcelain well, making them a mouth-healthy choice. 

Q: How long do dental veneers last?

A: Dental veneers are created to be a long-lasting restoration.  We expect veneers to last many years as long as they are taken care of properly.  Make sure to improve the lifespan of your veneers by brushing and flossing consistently, wearing a nightguard, and always visiting the dentist on a regular basis.
