ELGIN, IL, June 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As cosmetic dental technology improves year after year, more and more patients are looking to have that ideal Hollywood smile. Most of the "perfect" Hollywood smiles seen on TV and movies are created with the help of porcelain veneers.
Dr. William Galanes of Northeast Family Dental Care on Prospect Boulevard in Elgin specializes in crafting and installing attractive veneers for patients who want to improve their smiles. Tooth restorations are now among the most popular and frequently requested services at his Elgin veneers dentistry.
There are two common types of modern tooth restorations -- porcelain crowns and veneers. A crown is a complete tooth covering. A veneer is a lightweight wafer that sits atop a patient's original rooted tooth to make it look much better on the surface. People who have teeth that aren't sized right, discolored or crooked are often good candidates for veneers.
Elgin Veneers from a Quality Provider
The process of getting veneers requires about three appointments (maybe two if the first two are combined). One appointment is to evaluate the patient's case and decide how many teeth need to be covered. For a "Hollywood" quality smile, the dentist often needs to treat several teeth in the front. The second appointment is to prepare the teeth and create a temporary restoration while the final veneer is being made. At the final appointment Elgin veneers dentist Dr. Galanes bonds the porcelain veneer to the tooth's surface.
"My patients are usually very pleasantly surprised at the results when they see their new smiles after getting veneers. Some of them have been insecure about the way their teeth look for many years and now they can smile confidently. The transformation is magical," he says with a smile.
The preparation process for a porcelain veneer should not be as extensive as what is needed for a full crown restoration, but it is a permanent and irreversible procedure with results that can last up to 10 years with good care. Good care includes twice-yearly dental visits along with regular daily brushing and flossing.
