Dental veneers are one of the quickest and least invasive methods available to makeover a damaged or unattractive smile. Whether your teeth have become dull and discolored due to age or you need to fix chipped or cracked teeth for a more symmetrical smile, veneers can give you the healthy look that you've always wanted in as little as three dental appointments. Dr. Frederic Mrugala, a dentist practicing in both Westmont and Hickory Hills, IL, offers a number of cosmetic and restorative dentistry services to improve your smile, oral health, and overall quality of life.


A New and Improved Smile with Dental Veneers

Veneers can correct common cosmetic issues like stains, discolorations, chips, cracks, mild gaps, and spacing. They can also change the size, shape, and color of teeth to make them look more cosmetically attractive. Veneers are made of a razor-thin, translucent layer of porcelain designed to match the texture and color of a natural tooth, and are bonded onto the surface of the tooth to create the desired length and shape. In some cases, a small layer of enamel may have to be removed from the teeth to make room for the veneer and ensure a smooth, natural looking fit.

Some of the most common uses for porcelain veneers include:

  • Covering permanent stains and discolorations that can't be removed with surface whitening treatments
  • Fixing mild to moderate chips, fractures, and cracks
  • Close gaps and spaces (spacing issues caused by significant bite and alignment problems may require orthodontic treatment)
  • Improve the cosmetic appearance of damaged or deformed teeth

With good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist, veneers can last anywhere from five to ten years and well beyond in many cases.
