Veneers Dentistry 101

Have you seen a celebrity who has perfect-looking pearly whites? It’s possible he or she got that smile thanks to dental veneers. So what are they? Veneers are very thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain, almost like a thin wafer or shell, that we bond to the outside of your teeth to change how they look.

Dental veneers can be used to remedy a number of different situations. For example, they can cover up severely discolored teeth, chipped teeth, and worn down teeth. They can also close up small gaps and fix teeth with uneven length. The best way to see how dental veneers can benefit you is to come in and speak with our Hickory Hills dentist, Dr. Simona Ziliute, so we can have a look at your unique case and come up with an individual treatment plan.

Dental Veneers FAQ

Do veneers stain?

Porcelain veneers are designed to be stain-resistant! It is possible for us to polish them for you if you feel like you’re seeing a change though. Veneers made from composite resin instead of porcelain are more prone to discoloration, but they still won’t stain like your natural teeth do.

Are veneers painful?

Getting dental veneers shouldn’t bring you any pain. For starters, we take all the necessary steps to minimize discomfort when preparing your teeth and placing dental veneers like local anesthesia. Not to mention the members of our dental team are firm believers in providing stress-free care!

Are veneers expensive?

It’s hard to make a blanket statement about whether veneers are expensive given everyone’s different financial situations and various coverage offered by different insurance plans. Plus, for many people, a beautiful, confident smile is priceless! To help make dental veneers as affordable as we can for our community, we accept insurance, offer payment plans through CareCredit, and have our own in-house repayment plans.
