We really do live in a fast-paced, fast food, short-on-time society. People work long hours, take little time off, and want everything they want as quickly as possible. With dental work, patience is sometimes a necessity, as a fast-food pace and price is going to get you fast-food results. This means that your dental work might look pretty good, but the results won’t have the same high-quality as something that you spend a little more time and money on, and you might find yourself a lot less satisfied. Dr. Brent A. Engelberg, your Northwest Chicago dentist, will tell you about one particular cosmetic procedure that can provide nearly instant results, however, while still maintaining quality: porcelain veneers.
Multi-tasking Porcelain Veneers
Are your teeth stained, worn, broken, worn-down, and/or full of gaps? You may dream of a gorgeous, natural looking smile that makes you proud to flash your grin. Porcelain veneers are the multi-taskers of cosmetic dentistry. Thin ceramic shells that can be placed over damaged or unattractive teeth are an effective treatment for a multitude of dental issues. If you have several things wrong, porcelain veneers may be able to make over your smile in as little as two visits to the dentist.
Functional and Attractive
Porcelain has become an oft utilized material in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. In the case of veneers, since your most visible teeth are generally the focus, the light-reflecting qualities of the material are an essential aspect of the high quality. Porcelain closely mimics natural teeth, so that the dental work doesn’t appear to be work, but rather just a beautiful, natural smile. Thankfully, porcelain veneers are also durable, stain resistant, and require very little tooth structure to be removed. Generally, just a small amount of tooth enamel is taken off, which means your teeth will remain strong in addition to looking terrific.
