Porcelain Veneers in East Peoria, IL

Porcelain veneers have been around since the 1920s and offer significant benefits for patients interested in improving their appearance and their dental health. Our practice offers porcelain veneers in East Peoria that can transform your smile and hide misaligned or chipped teeth. This can boost your confidence when meeting people for the first time and can provide you with added self-esteem. Understanding the porcelain veneers procedure can help you make the most appropriate decisions for your teeth and your personal appearance.

Key Facts About Porcelain Veneers

Unlike dental implants, porcelain veneers are designed to fit over the surface of your natural teeth. These cosmetic devices can cover up damaged and stained teeth to create a more attractive smile. Veneers must be designed and fabricated specifically for each patient and are not suitable for individuals with extensive damage to roots, gums, or the structural integrity of their teeth. Our dentists will assess the condition of your teeth and provide you with an accurate evaluation of your suitability for this procedure. If you are not a good candidate for veneers porcelain, we can often provide alternative treatment plans that can help you achieve a brighter smile and a healthier mouth.

Porcelain Veneers: How to Manage the Cost

Some of our patients express concerns about the porcelain veneers cost and their ability to pay for these advanced dental procedures. We offer a wide range of options designed to help you manage your porcelain veneers cost. Where practical, we will work with your dental insurance plan to determine if some of the expenses associated with porcelain crowns and replacement porcelain teeth can be charged to these insurance policies. Our skilled and knowledgeable dental professionals can provide you with the best solutions for your financial concerns.

Understanding the Process

For most of our patients, the porcelain veneers process involves two basic steps:

  • We will prepare your teeth by shaving off a thin layer of the enamel. This will allow the placement of the veneers without taking up too much room in your mouth.
  • Once your porcelain veneers are ready, your dentist will use strong dental adhesives to attach these devices directly to your teeth.

It may take a few weeks for your appliances to be fabricated and delivered to our office. We will stay in touch with you throughout the process to ensure that you are prepared for every step of your cosmetic dentistry procedure.

How Porcelain Veneers Can Brighten Your Smile

You can expect whiter teeth and a more even smile after your procedure is complete. The porcelain used for these procedures is durable and can provide added protection for your teeth. Most of our patients report increased self-esteem and self-confidence thanks to the improved appearance porcelain veneers provide.

Getting Ready for Porcelain Veneers

You may require minor dental work during the lead-up to your porcelain veneers application. Our dental staff will provide you with the information you need to prepare effectively for porcelain veneers and to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and ready to accept these dental appliances.

Setting up an appointment with our dental professionals is the best way to prepare for the porcelain veneers procedure. We will work with you to determine your most important goals and to help you achieve a brighter, healthier smile. Call us today to learn more about our full range of porcelain veneers services and to schedule a consultation with us.
