Your smile is an important part of your appearance. However, when minor cracks, chips, or stains keep you from feeling confident in the way your smile looks, it can quickly take a toll on your self-esteem. At his Chicago dental office, Dr. Ogbara offers dental veneers, a fast and minimally invasive way to dramatically improve your smile.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of damaged teeth, enhancing your smile in several ways. As this treatment is made from thin porcelain shells, veneers are highly durable and blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Often, veneers are recommended for patients who want to cover physical flaws to teeth. If you notice any of the following flaws in your smile, we recommend reaching out to Dr. Ogbara for a consultation:
- Chips or cracks
- Teeth that are too small
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Deeply stained teeth
Getting Veneers in Chicago
At 26th Street Dental Center, we know the importance of beautiful, healthy smiles. During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Ogbara will evaluate the condition of your smile to ensure your smile is at its healthiest. From there, we will take an impression of your smile to create your veneer. We’ll also start preparing the tooth receiving the veneer by lightly buffing off the top layer of dental enamel. This helps secure the veneer to the tooth and ensures that the veneer sits correctly and doesn’t appear bulky.
Once the veneer has been made, you’ll return to our office to have the veneer fit and placed. After this is complete, you’ll be free to return to your normal routine with a beautifully improved smile!
