Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

Porcelain veneers can help Oakbrook Terrace, IL patients revitalize their smiles and improve their ability to eat and chew foods. They are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that adhere to the front surface of teeth. They can be color-matched to your existing teeth. Once we bond them, they will withstand the rigors of everyday chewing and eating, sometimes more so than other cosmetic dentistry methods, such as bridges. We use them to fix discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, and misaligned teeth. Veneers are also perfect for closing the space between teeth.

The Many Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

Veneers provide many undeniable benefits to anyone who takes advantage of them. They provide a natural tooth appearance, and they do not clash with your gums. Porcelain is a stain-resistant material. We can even select a color that will make darker teeth appear whiter when you smile. Most importantly, veneers are convenient. They do not require as much shaping as crowns, making them a less time-consuming procedure. However, they are generally stronger and look better than crowns, despite their simplicity.

The Dental Veneer Process

The dental veneer procedure is as no-hassle as it gets! We need to reshape the tooth before we start – usually an amount equal to the veneer’s thickness. Then, we make a model – or impression – of the impacted tooth. We send the impression to the laboratory, which then fabricates the veneer. It usually takes two to four weeks for us to receive the finished veneer from the lab. Once we receive it, we bond it to your teeth using cement. We then etch, clean, and polish it to give it the natural tooth-looking appearance.

Take Care of Your Veneers, and They’ll Take Care Of You

Veneers will last anywhere between seven to 15 years – but only if you care for them. Proper brushing and flossing habits remain paramount. One of the additional benefits of porcelain veneers is they do not require any special aftercare. But neglecting oral health will significantly reduce their lifespan and waste money. If veneers aren’t in your wheelhouse, we provide crowns and bonding, both of which achieve similar goals as veneers.

Client Testimonials

Gina H.

I have over 15 years experience in clinical dentistry and dental laboratory management. I can honestly say that Dr. Arredondo gives the best, most honest care that I have ever received. He does great work, its pain free, the office is clean, staff is professional. My parents also go here and they really love him as well. I've worked for a lot of Dentists who, in my opinion, treatment plan extra services just to bill extra production. That IS NOT the case at this office. They will take care of your needs and nothing more/nothing less. Rest assured. As a patient of this office for upwards of 7 years... I highly recommend Smile Big Dental Specialists.

Reyna S.

My boyfriend and I visited their new location at 1S376 Summit Ave in Oak Brook Terrace, IL and absolutely adored the place. The location was very clean and updated and the staff was friendly as well as informative! I hadn't been to the dentist in a while so I'm outdated on technology but it was amazing to see the newer instruments used for the X-rays and cleanings! My hygienist David was very gentle, kind and answered everything I had questions about. The doctor came in later after my cleaning and went over everything again and informed me on how to properly care for the issues I was having...
