First impressions are key, and a winning smile can help you put your best foot forward when greeting the world. If you’re searching for a cosmetic dentistry solution, porcelain veneers correct aesthetic flaws that might hurt your confidence. Veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are custom-designed to perfectly fit over your natural teeth, concealing any imperfections and matching the exact shade you need. 


Everyone deserves to feel confident in their smile. Wicker Park Dental Group is a team of knowledgeable and professional dentists whose goal is to provide you with dental service based on care, comfort, and quality. Our Chicago dental group is recognized by industry leaders for our experience and expertise.

We want you to be as informed as possible about the steps you can take to achieve the perfect smile. Here are 4 things to know about porcelain veneers:


1. Veneers fix many flaws.

If you are insecure about your smile, chances are it’s a problem that veneers can solve. We recommend veneers to patients looking to correct:

- Gaps or unevenly spaced teeth

- Teeth that are broken, cracked, or chipped

- Severe staining and discoloration

- Mildly crooked or misaligned teeth

- Small, worn, or misshapen teeth

2. Veneers are long-lasting.

Designed as a permanent fix for cosmetic dental problems, veneers are a long-lasting solution as long as they are properly cared for.  Studies have shown that correctly maintained veneers can last up to 20 years. Proper care includes good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.

3. There are 2 options: partial or full veneers.

Customizing your options goes beyond shape and color. Depending on your needs, you can choose partial or full veneers. Partials are a great choice for patients who want to fix one tooth or just parts of a few teeth. They cover only one section of a tooth where the enamel is flawed.

Full veneers cover the surface of all of the teeth for patients with multiple defects in need of correction, or for people looking to close a gap or correct spacing.

4. The process is straightforward.

While it won’t happen overnight, correcting your smile with veneers is a relatively quick process that can be done in as little as two visits. At our Chicago dental office, the first step is to take digital impressions of the teeth in need of treatment.

Next, our cosmetic team will design veneers perfectly customized to your needs. In 1-2 weeks, you can return to have your new smile securely bonded to your teeth. We’ll make sure everything is adjusted perfectly and you’re feeling happy and comfortable.
