The Ideal Solution for a Painless Makeover

Dr. Michael Marcus offers porcelain veneers in addition to a variety of other cosmetic procedures at his downtown Chicago Loop practice. If you want to makeover your smile without surgery or braces, veneers might be an ideal solution. Most patients qualify for this type of treatment, so if you have worn enamel, permanent stains, wear and tear, or uneven teeth that detract from the beauty of your smile, you are probably a good candidate.

What are Veneers?

Fashioned out of ultra thin tooth-colored shells, veneers are custom-made to fit over the surfaces of your teeth. Cosmetic dentists, like Dr. Marcus, affix the shells to the front of the teeth, enabling them to radically change the color, shape, size, or length. Many people prefer porcelain veneers due to their ability to reflect light in a similar manner to your own teeth. The porcelain finish gives them a more natural appearance than other types of veneers. They are also known to be more stain resistant. However, within eight to 10 years, both types will need to be replaced.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Placing your veneers usually requires at least three trips to your cosmetic dentist. During the initial consultation, Dr. Marcus will examine your teeth and discuss what kind of results you hope to achieve. At the second appointment, he will prepare your natural teeth by removing some of their exterior enamel and then taking an impression that will be used to create the veneers. During the third visit, which occurs about three weeks later, Dr. Marcus spends several hours meticulously placing your veneers using a bonding material that is activated by a special light.

Although most patients qualify for veneers, some conditions may need to be addressed before they can be placed. Patients who with weak teeth, missing teeth, decay, or gum disease will need to take care of those issues before they will be eligible for the procedure.
