The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Explore the possibilities with custom porcelain veneers in Fox Lake, IL.

If you have ever wanted to transform your smile, or you want to address cosmetic issues like discoloration, gaps, or chips in the teeth, you may want to consider porcelain veneers.

If this sounds like the right solution for you, an experienced Fox Lake cosmetic dentist can help you achieve your ideal smile with porcelain veneers. Read on to learn more about how porcelain veneers can benefit you.

Natural Looking Solution

Porcelain veneers are custom designed to meet the cosmetic needs of the patient. This means that patients can expect their veneers to look, feel, and function like their natural teeth. Our team will take impressions of your teeth, and Dr. Prendergast will color-match your veneers to ensure they blend seamlessly and naturally over your existing teeth.

The impressions and information are sent to a local dental lab, where you’re porcelain veneers are specially crafted by a master ceramist. Once we receive your veneers, Dr. Prendergast will carefully bond them to your teeth. During this appointment, our team will make any minor adjustments to your veneers to ensure you are satisfied with the end result.

Addresses A Wide Range of Cosmetic Issues

Porcelain veneers can be used to address these common dental concerns:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Uneven or misshapen teeth
  • Chipped, broken, or fractured teeth

For patients who want to make minor changes to their smile, we may recommend dental bonding. Dental bonding uses composite resin to transform the appearance of natural teeth.

Simple To Maintain

Taking care of your veneers is just like taking care of your natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit the dentist regularly to reduce plaque and tartar buildup.

Properly caring for your veneers can help sustain a whiter, brighter smile for years to come.

Stain Resistant and Long Lasting

Dental porcelain is a natural stain and decay-resistant material, which makes it one of the top-rated materials for dental veneers. With proper oral hygiene and routine maintenance, porcelain veneers can last many years.

In order to maintain your porcelain veneers, you should care for them just as you would your natural teeth.  Keep in mind the same bad dental habits that can harm your natural teeth can also harm your veneers. Be sure to be diligent in your dental hygiene routine and avoid bad dental habits.
