Research has proven that your smile plays a huge role in your life. Not only is it foundational for your self-esteem and self-confidence but it helps determine your personality in both personal circles and professional encounters. Your smile can literally add years to your life as it has a positive impact on your immune system. If your smile exposes stained or discolored teeth, a cracked tooth or chipped tooth or even an unfortunate gap between two front teeth, porcelain veneers can correct any of these perceived imperfections.

The first step in addressing the possibility of porcelain veneers is to call Dr. Dolgov at 815-939-2520. He and his staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will evaluate your personal situation and discuss how a porcelain veneer will work for you. Feel free to stop by our office at 498 Brown Blvd., Bourbonnias, IL 60914, if you would like to meet any of the staff before you schedule an evaluation.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure from Preparation to Placement

Once you have agreed together that this is the avenue you wish to take, we will first find a shade of white that matches your natural teeth. Then the enamel on the front of the tooth or teeth to be addressed will be taken down slightly to allow room for the veneer to sit on the front surface. An impression will be made of the teeth and then this will be sent off to the dental lab. They in turn will fabricate the veneer out of wafer-thin porcelain in the shade of white you have chosen. Upon completion Dr. Dolgov will clean all your teeth and then etch the surface such that an adhesive can be used to place the new veneer on the front of the tooth. Just like that you have a new tooth and a new smile.

The Benefits of having Porcelain Veneers

Here are a few of the benefits of having porcelain veneers placed over imperfect teeth.

  • Whitens the Teeth- Sometimes people have issues getting their natural teeth whiter. Porcelain veneers can deliver that whiteness. They are also stain-resistant for those that love their coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Even foods or fruits with serious pigmentation are now safe.
  • Cosmetic Issues Corrected- We mentioned that the new porcelain veneer can cover up cracks or chips, but they can also make a tooth look straight or even close that gap between two teeth.
  • Life Expectancy- The life expectancy of porcelain veneers is decent if you care for them. It will surpass that of doing composite bonding on the front of the teeth. It is also more economical than receiving a full crown. We like to see as much of the natural tooth as possible at Bourbonnias Family Dental.

Extending the Life Expectancy of Your Porcelain Veneers by developing Good Oral Hygiene Habits

It is possible that directly after your veneer is placed you might experience some tooth sensitivity. Otherwise, look in the mirror and admire your new veneer. Then we will discuss how to keep it looking natural and new.

Once specific care of the veneer is thoroughly addressed, we will go into the balance of your natural teeth. We will share with you that the dental industry strongly suggests that we all brush our teeth twice a day, for two minutes at each time. Then flossing at least once a day is the basis for a good oral hygiene practice at home. This will remove the bacteria carrying plaque daily not allowing it to form on the teeth. The plaque is the culprit behind cavities and gum disease. If you like our service and want us on your dental health team we will also encourage you to establish appointments every six months for evaluations, x-rays and professional teeth cleaning. Prevention is the ticket in the dental business. We like to see patients with healthy teeth and gums. We are also advocates of helping you keep your natural teeth for your lifetime. By working together, we can extend the life of your porcelain veneers and keep it or them looking natural for years. Remember, your smile is priceless. If you follow these guidelines and continue with good habits not only will your natural teeth look and last longer, but your porcelain veneers will as well. You can extend the life expectancy of both if you take proper care of them.

The Costs Involved with Your Porcelain Veneer and the Insurance Coverage Available

The costs that will be associated with your porcelain veneer will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. There might be a few factors that might make the pricing more complex. The number of visits for completion and the dental lab will play a role. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the procedure. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our options if the budget is a driving factor in having porcelain veneers placed.
