Veneers are custom-fit, tooth-colored materials used to help cover and improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneer shells could help you with the dental struggles you may be facing. People look to get veneers in Mount Prospect when their teeth are discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, or irregularly shaped.
Consultation: Whether it is one tooth or many teeth you are looking to treat, your veneer procedure will begin with a consultation with the dentist Be clear and descriptive to the dentist when describing the result you want to achieve. Your dentist will then examine your teeth and discuss any limitations or concerns. After your consultation, the dentist will remove ½ millimeter of enamel from the tooth’s surface. This is so the placement of the veneers looks natural when they are bonded to your teeth. After the enamel is removed, the impressions for the veneers will be taken.
Bonding: Bonding is when the veneer is permanently applied to the surface of your tooth. At James Kakos, DDS, we have the proper equipment to make sure the veneer blends well with the rest of your teeth. Your tooth will be cleaned, polished and etched before the cement is applied and the veneer is placed on your tooth. With light beam technology, the veneer will harden quickly and the dentist will then be able to assess the veneer and alter anything if necessary.
