Transform chipped, discolored, or uneven teeth at our office in Hyde Park, Chicago.
Do you feel self-conscious about your chipped, cracked, or stained teeth? A beautiful smile is not just for the lucky few. You can transform your smile using proven techniques that are safe and long lasting.
Porcelain veneers are thin coverings that are bonded to your tooth structure and can immediately improve the length, shape, size, crowding, spacing, and color of your teeth.
Many porcelain veneers are now as thin as contact lenses yet are as strong as natural tooth enamel. And because veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. But unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist stains caused by coffee, tea, and cigarette smoke.
No-prep veneers, in particular, involve less tooth preparation than traditional veneers and little to no discomfort. If you’re considering porcelain veneers as a way to improve your smile, schedule a consultation at University Dental Professionals today.
Who Is a Good Candidate for No-Prep Veneers?
No-prep veneers are a great option for people who want to permanently improve the color, size, and appearance of their smile.
Veneers can hide discoloration or yellowing, give smaller teeth more prominence, and help improve the overall balance of your smile relative to your mouth and face.
This restorative treatment is best suited for people with generally smaller teeth, an alignment that does not interfere with good oral health, a spacing between teeth, and a yellowing or discoloration that is more uniform.
It’s also a good option for people who have lost the surface of their tooth to wear.
How Do No-Prep Veneers Work?
The first and most important step is to schedule an appointment at University Dental Professionals where we take the time to understand your goals and determine if no-prep veneers are right for you.
Following an initial consultation, one of our experienced dentists will determine the exact anatomy of your teeth and gums to create beautiful, precision-made veneers. The final step is fitting the veneers.
Here’s a general overview of the procedure—
- Impressions are taken to help map the size, shape, and spacing of your teeth and gums. This information will be transformed into technical models, which will be used to create a precise set of veneers.
- Fabrication of no-prep veneers takes place in a laboratory using your impressions and state-of-the-art techniques and materials. Veneers are custom made to follow your natural tooth and gum line.
- Fitting takes place at your next office visit. You will “try-in” the teeth to see the final product and test initial fit. From there, your dentist will prep the teeth by removing a thin layer of the natural tooth and applying an adhesive. This is often painless and requires no anesthesia. Your dentist will bond the veneer to the teeth and adjust the final fit.
If you want to transform your smile in a way this is efficient and cost-effective, consider no-prep veneers at University Dental Professionals.
