Have you wondered, what are porcelain veneers in Chicago?


The skyrocketing popularity of cosmetic dentistry can be attributed to several factors, most notably society and technology. Our world is becoming increasingly focused on image. From social interactions to career advancement, a winning smile can truly give you an advantage. However, until recently a beautiful smile wasn't an option. Thankfully, unsightly restorations, and plastic looking false teeth are in the past.

Modern technology and sophisticated techniques have given us a wealth of reliable, effective, and stunning cosmetic options. At Making Smiles Happen in Chicago, IL, we incorporate the latest advances in dentistry, to give you the very best options currently available. Of our many cosmetic options, porcelain veneers is one of the most requested (second only to teeth whitening).

Surely, you have heard veneers called “instant orthodontics” or an “instant smile makeover.” These thin slivers of porcelain can completely transform the appearance of your smile. They are adhered to the visible surface of your tooth, so any existing esthetic flaws are covered. Veneers can visually alter the size, shape, spacing, alignment, and color of your teeth. Very little, if any, enamel needs to be removed because veneers are so thin, making them one of the most conservative treatments available.

While the procedure is not actually instant, it only takes to or three visits, and is completed in just a few weeks. Of course, the process begins with designing your new smile. A single tooth, or a select few, can be treated with veneers. They will be colored and shaped to match your existing teeth, for a beautifully natural look. If all of your teeth are being treated, we can design your new smile to your specifications.

Nearly anyone is a good candidate for porcelain veneers. The important exception is people with damaged or weakened teeth. Veneers do provide some strength and protection, but it is minimal because they are so thin. Badly decayed or damaged teeth may need crowns instead. For many people, the best solution is crowns on some teeth, and veneers of others.

Peter W. Fry DDS believes in open, honest communication with his patients. He will never recommend a bad option, or pressure you to “upgrade” your treatment. He will listen to your goals, and help you make an informed decision about the best way to achieve those goals. If you have any questions, or you are ready to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fry, please call 773 - 545 1414 or email makingsmileshappen@sbcglobal.net today!
