Does the idea of a nearly instant redesign of your smile appeal to you? If so, you are like many of the patients at our Rolling Meadows, IL practice who work with Mike Errico DDS and Associates to get porcelain veneers. A remarkable solution to a surprisingly long list of dental issues, porcelain veneers can help people with:
- Deeply stained teeth that do not whiten even with advanced treatments
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Widely gapped teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Unevenly sized teeth
The way that porcelain veneers work is actually very simple. Your teeth are assessed by Dr. Errico and some plans are made to provide you with an enhanced smile. The plans involve the use of dental veneers that fit directly over your teeth, but which are so thin and durable that they can be used just like your natural teeth.
As part of a cosmetic dentistry solution, or as the entire solution itself, porcelain veneers are amongst the most popular choices. How do they work? They are made specifically for your needs. They are designed for each, individual tooth and will allow Dr. Errico to overcome specific flaws or problems with your smile.
Your teeth have to be especially prepared for them, with a bit of the enamel being removed and the thin shells of porcelain being bonded to the surface. This is why they are also considered a restorative solution for broken, cracked or chipped teeth because the bonding adds extra strength. However, they can also be made to fit together in a way that masks and hides issues such as gaps or uneven lengths.
Even slightly crooked or misaligned teeth can be remedied with dental veneers. Rather than spending years with treatments like orthodontics and braces, or struggling with tooth whitening on a deeply or permanently stained tooth, porcelain veneers give a near instant solution.
When you want to enjoy the very latest cosmetic dentistry technologies and get a nearly instant smile makeover, get in touch.
