What solutions do teeth veneers offer for Chicago area residents?

Porcelain veneers, also known as teeth veneers, are commonly used in cosmetic dentistry to improve patients’ smiles. These thin shells of porcelain material are made to fit over the natural tooth, and can be used to make dramatic changes to the appearance of a smile. Imperfections are easily disguised with their placement.

Peter W. Fry DDS of Making Smiles Happen in the Chicago area may suggest porcelain veneers to patients when they want a fast and affordable way to address aesthetic problems within their smile. In fact, porcelain veneers are commonly used during full mouth reconstruction, where function and cosmetics are improved with a combination of treatments. The doctor can work with patients to determine when porcelain veneers are right for their smile, and can discuss with them the many advantages they have over alternative treatments.

Veneers can be used to treat a number of concerns, including:
  • Teeth that are crooked or misaligned
  • Teeth with an unusual shape that can be covered with a veneer
  • Teeth that are permanently stained and do not respond to teeth whitening treatments
  • Teeth with cracks or chips
While there are other solutions for some of these concerns, including orthodontics and dental bonding, these options do not always fit patients’ needs and desires. Veneers allow patients to improve the way they look quickly without the need for extended treatment such as orthodontics. Other solutions such as dental bonding do not last nearly as long as porcelain veneers. When patients are given a variety of options, they may choose veneers because they are easy and can provide a solution that lasts for years without replacement.

Peter W. Fry DDS at Making Smiles Happen helps Chicago area patients improve the health and beauty of their smiles, and can assist patients in achieving the smile of their dreams. When patients schedule a consultation visit with him, he provides a thorough evaluation of their smile and discusses with them the ways in which he can make positive, long-term changes to it. Patients can work with their dentist to determine the best treatment plan for their smile.
