Enhance the Beauty of Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

A beautiful smile can give you the confidence you need to make a great first impression. Unfortunately, even small cosmetic imperfections can significantly detract from the beauty of the smile and leave patients feeling self-conscious about their appearance. At his dental practice, Dr. Craig S. Kohler offers a comprehensive range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to address oral flaws and improve the aesthetics of the smile. One of the most popular of these treatments is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are placed over the facial surface of the teeth to conceal a wide range of blemishes and imperfections. To find out if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, contact our Chicago, IL practice. We can completely transform the appearance of your smile in just two dental visits.

Am I a Candidate?

Porcelain veneers are appropriate for the majority of our cosmetic dentistry patients. Veneers completely cover the visible surface of the teeth, so they conceal a wide range of imperfections. The versatility of porcelain veneers is one thing that makes them such a popular cosmetic treatment. Any of the following blemishes can be addressed through the application of porcelain veneers:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Stains
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Misshapen or poorly sized teeth
  • Minor chips, cracks, or fractures

Patients with any of the above concerns are likely to be good candidates for porcelain veneer treatment. These restorations are especially beneficial to those patients who are concerned about the presence of multiple cosmetic flaws. Porcelain veneers are great because they address a full range of aesthetic flaws with just one single treatment application.

While there are many benefits to porcelain veneers treatment, patients should keep a few things in mind. First, porcelain veneers do not treat any of the above conditions, they simply mask them to improve the appearance of the smile. Second, porcelain veneers do not address oral health problems. If the teeth or gums are suffering from decay or infection, these problems will need to be addressed before porcelain veneers can be applied. Finally, traditional porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment. Before placing traditional veneers, a small amount of tooth enamel will be removed. This enamel will not grow back, so should the porcelain veneers become damaged or worn down at a certain point, they will need to be replaced. However, Dr. Kohler does offer prepless veneers for those patients who want to enhance the beauty of the smile without permanently altering the teeth.

Overall, ideal porcelain veneers candidates are those with good oral health who are looking for a fast and effective way to improve the appearance of the smile. Porcelain veneers hide imperfections and allow patients to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted.
