PORCELAIN VENEERS IN GLENCOE
The Quick Way To A Beautiful, Confident Smile
Dr. Shawn Knorr is very experienced in placing veneers. He has extensive training in cosmetic dentistry, including veneers, and continues to stay current on the latest developments. His focus is on the preservation of teeth and he takes a conservative approach when it comes to your smile. He places veneers that look natural and are properly framed into the smile.
A veneer is a wafer-thin shield of porcelain that’s used to cover the front surface of the tooth. It is bonded to your tooth with avery strong, yet safe, adhesive agent. With 21st century technology, porcelain veneers can now last up to 20 years.
Veneers can be used to change the appearance of teeth and correct minor structural flaws, such as chips or cracks. They are one of the fastest and most effective ways to create a beautiful new smile. Dr. Knorr knows how to make them look completely natural.
Minimal-prep / No-shots / No-pain porcelain veneers
There’s a whole new generation of modern materials and techniques that have been developed to make great-looking veneers with minimal “prepping” or grinding away of the tooth structure. Porcelain veneers require less tooth preparation than crowns and are used when the teeth are in good condition but need a change of shape, size or color. The porcelain used is ultrathin and very strong. New bonding materials give the finished veneer its strength and natural look.
Procedure for Veneers
Dr. Knorr will prep the tooth receiving a veneer, being as conservative as possible. His aim is to remove as little tooth structure as possible. He then bonds the new material to the enamel, adjusting the color and st raightness of the teeth until they look good and the patient is happy and comfortable with the restoration. We then let you go home for a few days so you can look at them and make sure they feel just right.
Next, we make any needed adjustments and then take impressions of the teeth and send these off to the lab to replicate.
When you have worn the temporaries for 3 to 4 weeks, you come back in for the final try in process. We allow you to look in the mirror and talk with them in place. Once you are happy with the result, the veneers are bonded in place.
After veneer treatment, people often cannot even tell that our patients have had any work done.
