Applied with the artistry of one of our skilled Lake Forest cosmetic dentists, Drs. Douglas Campbell and David Schmidt offer porcelain veneers to improve your smile dramatically. Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure, and the results are astonishing.What are porcelain veneers?
A veneer is a thin, dental porcelain shell that is permanently adhered to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can be placed on a single tooth or any tooth that is visible when you smile. When applied by a well-trained cosmetic dentist at Lake Forest Smiles, veneers look natural and beautiful.
Our veneers are made with high-quality dental porcelain—a beautiful, durable, and stain-resistant material. Dental porcelain also has a similar light-reflecting quality as natural tooth enamel so that it blends with your smile.
Porcelain Veneers Can:
- Correct a crooked smile
- Close unwanted gaps between teeth
- Whiten badly stained teeth
- Improve the shape and color of your teeth
- Reshape worn teeth to help restore a more youthful smile
If you are unhappy with the way that your teeth look, ask Drs. Campbell and Schmidt about veneers. Many common cosmetic dental problems can be concealed with expertly crafted porcelain veneers. The porcelain can be chosen in the same shade as your other natural teeth if you only need one or two. If you decide to get veneers for the teeth that are visible when you smile, ask Drs. Campbell and Schmidt about choosing a bright, white shade to give your smile a boost.
How to Care for Your Veneers
Veneers are permanent, meaning that they adhere to your teeth and cannot be removed except by the dentist. With good oral hygiene, veneers should last a decade or longer.
Follow these tips to prolong your results:
- Avoid using tobacco in any form, to decrease the build-up of stains
- Maintain a good routine of oral care that includes daily brushing and flossing, combined with regularly-scheduled dental cleanings every six months
- Brush and floss carefully while wearing your temporary veneers
- Avoid using your teeth as tools, biting your fingernails, or cracking nutshells
- Wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth at night
How much do veneers cost?
Porcelain veneers use the finest materials in cosmetic dentistry. Getting veneers is an investment in your smile. The cost of getting veneers varies, depending on how many you need. One or two veneers cost less than getting a full set on your top and bottom teeth. Lake Forest Smiles provides your treatment plan cost before beginning work. If finances are a concern for you, we also offer third party financing through CareCredit, and LendingClub, or ask about our other payment options.
