Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers, Chicago Illinois
Porcelain Veneers Chicago - Video Porcelain dental veneers are known by many names. They may be called dental veneers, porcelain veneers, porcelain laminates, facings, or simply veneers. Many patients call them a miracle, after seeing previously unsightly smiles transformed! Lumineers are a popular brand of porcelain veneers, which are much thinner than most.

Porcelain veneers for a dazzling smile
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Do you have misshapen, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth? Are they stained, discolored, or naturally dark? Are they spaced too far apart, creating unattractive spaces? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you. They are among the most beautiful, natural looking smile enhancement procedures available.

What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain is a glass or ceramic type of material that naturally resembles tooth enamel in color and opalescence. Veneers are very thin layers of porcelain, covering unsightly teeth like a beautiful mask. They are about as thick as a contact lens or a fingernail. Because they are so thin, the preparation requires very little tooth alteration.

The beauty of porcelain veneers

How can this fast, conservative procedure create such a spectacular smile? Porcelain is known as one of the best materials for esthetic dental procedures, because it mimics tooth enamel very closely. Veneers are extremely thin (usually less than 0.5 mm thickness), giving them an enamel-like translucence creating a natural appearance. There is no dark line at the base like you may have noticed with some dental crowns, and porcelain is stain-resistant for lasting beauty.

What is the difference between porcelain veneers and Lumineers?
  • Lumineers is specific brand of porcelain veneers, which use a patented porcelain material known as Cerinate. They are even thinner than traditional veneers.
  • Lumineers require very little or no tooth reduction. They are a great choice if your teeth only need minor changes, or if they are set back slightly.
  • Traditional veneers may be a better choice if you are looking to make more dramatic changes.
  • Each person is unique, and an individual examination is necessary to determine the best type of veneer for you. The team at Big Smile Dental is known for exceptional cosmetic work, and they will be happy to help you choose your perfect smile.
Alternatives to porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are perfect for many people, but everyone is different. There are many ways to improve a smile, and veneers might not be the solution for you. The team at Big Smile Dental is trained and experienced in providing a wide variety of cosmetic solutions, including veneers, teeth whitening, implants, traditional orthodontics (braces), and Invisalign, giving us a unique advantage in evaluating your individual needs. For a limited time, we are offering new patients a complete set of x-rays and a full exam for only $1.00. No, that isn’t a misprint; it really is just one dollar! No strings attached, and no obligations.

Will porcelain veneers stain or darken over time?
No. That is one of the great things about porcelain veneers. Because the veneers are made of porcelain, they are very stain resistant.

The procedure
Porcelain veneers are attached to your teeth using a dental bonding glue or cement. Although veneers are very thin, once bonded to your teeth they become strong. The process is fast and conservative. First, your teeth are prepared and impressions are sent to a dental laboratory along with the design for your new smile. When the veneers are ready, your dentist will check the fit and appearance, then attach them to your teeth. You can have your porcelain veneers and a beautiful new smile in just two office visits!
