Beautiful smiling woman with veneers

Veneers

A smile can make you more approachable, confident, and improve your self-esteem. However, it can be hard to smile when you hate your teeth. 

Be the most confident version of yourself with porcelain veneers. 

Dr. Yamen Akhras has been placing dental veneers for more than 10 years and is available for dentistry consultations in Orland Park, IL.

What Are Veneers?

In dentistry, a veneer is a porcelain shell placed over a tooth to conceal minor imperfections. If you're unhappy with your teeth and want a long-lasting solution, dental veneers can help enhance the look of your entire smile. As long as you have healthy gums and your teeth are free of tooth decay and other oral hygiene issues, you are probably an excellent candidate for veneers.

What Imperfections Do Porcelain Veneers Conceal?

There's a reason why many A-list celebrities invest in veneers: they can transform your smile into something beautiful. 

Chips and Cracks

That chip on your front tooth doesn't need to take center stage. Enhancing one or more chipped or cracked teeth is possible with veneers. Your dentist can design a veneer that fits your tooth precisely and looks natural among surrounding teeth.

Discoloration and Yellow Teeth

Has your dentist determined that whitening cannot address the deep intrinsic stains affecting your smile? With veneers, you can say goodbye to permanently discolored teeth and leave the dental office with a bright white smile.

Shape and Size

Veneers can adjust the appearance of small or misshapen teeth, adding length or filling in small gaps. Dental veneers can give your tooth proportions that look great among surrounding natural teeth.

Cost of Porcelain Veneers

Pricing is mainly dependent on how many veneers are applied and the specifics of your unique smile and treatment. Our veneers cost between $1,100 and $1,800 per tooth. Since veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry, dental insurance won't cover the cost. However, Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, IL, offers financing through CareCredit® to make the price of this cosmetic treatment a comfortable fit for your budget. 

The Porcelain Veneers Procedure What to Expect

We will design your veneers with the dimensions of your face in mind to give you a balanced, beautiful smile. The team at our Orland Park dental office uses wax-up models so you can preview the final look before treatment begins. 
We build our cosmetic veneers from premium medical-grade IPS e.max® material.

Evaluation

Our dentist will evaluate the condition of your teeth and your overall oral health to see if you're a good candidate for dental veneers. 

First Appointment

In this initial appointment, Dr. Akhras will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a thin layer of enamel from the surface of each tooth receiving a veneer. He will then take a traditional mold impression of your teeth, which is sent to the lab that will create your veneers. The master ceramist at our partner lab hand-finishes veneers, ensuring outstanding quality. 

Second Appointment

About three or four weeks later, your custom set of veneers will be ready. Dr. Akhras will permanently bond your veneers to your individual teeth. You'll leave the office with a brand-new smile that looks symmetrical, healthy, and attractive.
Once veneers are placed, they can be cared for like natural teeth. Make sure to floss at least once a day and brush twice daily.
