Dental veneers have been a common cosmetic treatment for more than thirty years. Original forms of these custom-designed tooth covers were made using plastic material. When adhered to the front surface of teeth, the smile could be brighter, straighter, and more attractive. The problem with early materials is that they lacked the characteristics we expect to see, like translucency and sheen. As such, results could end up looking fake. Today, we have the advantage of time and practice in the area of cosmetic dentistry.
Patients of Dr. Janet Stopka can see their smiles transformed with gorgeous porcelain veneers. We understand that this permanent transformation of the smile is something that is done after careful consideration. Dr. Stopka achieves outstanding results through careful planning and incredible skill. The objective is to create ideal harmony between teeth, the lips, and the facial structure. With close attention to detail, we make sure your smile does not look manufactured.
Veneers provide patients with a very quick process for smile transformation. In just a few visits over about two weeks, you can feel newfound confidence in your naturally beautiful smile. The first and very important step in veneer treatment is the consultation. Your smile is all your own and should look like it. When you meet with Dr. Stopka about cosmetic care, you are asked to point out the aspects of your smile that concern you, as well as those that you like. In this visit, you and your experienced dentist decide upon the characteristics your veneers will have based on your desires as well as your facial structure and complexion.
Subsequent to your consultation, imaging and impressions will be taken and teeth will be prepared for veneers through gentle reduction. All necessary information is sent to our dental lab, where skilled ceramists create veneers from strong, beautiful porcelain. Final veneers are placed onto teeth using mild adhesive, giving you and Dr. Stopka the opportunity to observe their shape, size, and color. When perfected in these aspects, veneers can be permanently bonded to teeth, where they will remain for years with good care.
Your smile says a lot about you. We can help you convey your inner vibrancy with veneers designed just for you. Call (630) 756-5844 today to schedule your consultation in our friendly Burr Ridge dental office.
