Dental veneers, they look like artificial nails that fit over the front and the edge of the teeth. Veneers Palatine, IL are designed normally to improve the color of the teeth, the size, the shape of the teeth. There are two types of dental veneers, porcelain, and composite resin.
Porcelain is like a glass-type material usually called ceramic. The porcelain veneers are durable and the most beautiful and they usually have to be created in the dental laboratory by one of our expert technicians. The other method is to use composite resin to create the veneer up straight onto the patient's tooth.
In reality, the craft of the technician making those two things is the most significant factor in having them look natural. The second most significant factor is the wish of the patient. Some of the patients want natural and very beautiful results.
The veneers sometimes need a very small or in some cases no tooth reduction or tooth preparation, but in most circumstances a least tooth reduction, whereas a cap usually needs a part of tooth structure to be removed.
There are two main varieties of veneers. Those that are made by porcelain made in a dental laboratory by a skilled dental technician and some veneers are made at the dentist's office using composite resin usually done by our dentist right on the tooth.
When you make your appointment for a porcelain veneer, our dentist will take an x-ray and the impression of teeth and mouth. The surface of the tooth is buffed about half a millimeter and then the impression is taken and is sent to the laboratory to construct the veneer. Once the veneer is received from the lab, the surface of the tooth is cleaned, polished and etched to fix the veneer to adhere firmly on the surface. Finally, the bite is checked for the fine adjustment. In your next visit after a couple of weeks, our dentist will do a gentle check-up to know how the gums are responding to your veneers.
