Porcelain Veneers at Dr. Boshes Office in Highland Park, IL
Are chipped or cracked teeth affecting your smile? Porcelain veneers can provide you with a new and aesthetically pleasing look.
What are porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made restorations made of porcelain that recreate natural looking teeth. They also provide resilience and strength comparable to natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are one of the primary restorative choices of cosmetic dentistry. Suitable for a variety of patients, custom porcelain veneers “dress up” the natural tooth or restore a tooth to the correct color, shape, and size. They also allow us to correct tooth position by delivering “instant orthodontics.”

Why choose porcelain veneers
Veneers are available in porcelain and resin composite materials. What makes porcelain veneers the best choice?
- Better resistance to stains

- More conservative tooth preparation
- Minimal maintenance, similar to the regular dental routine for natural teeth
Custom porcelain veneer fabrication is a two-appointment procedure. During your first appointment, we prepare your teeth and take digital iTERO impressions of them, as well as on the neighboring teeth to create an accurate reproduction of your teeth. The impressions, and a detailed prescription of the color, shape, and position, are sent electronically to our dental lab. Our lab then fabricates your custom veneers following our directions.
At your second appointment, we assess your veneers, make any adjustments and check their color, shape, and position. Then we bond your veneers onto your teeth using state-of-the-art materials.
Porcelain veneers can offer you a remarkable dental change. Contact our office in Highland Park to learn more about porcelain veneers for your smile.
