What are dental veneers?

Cosmetic dental flaws are common, varied, and disheartening. Even the smallest chip or fracture can cause trouble to your self-esteem and overall oral health. One of our most versatile solutions, veneers are thin, semi-translucent shells bonded to the front of your teeth to improve your smile. Dr. Brian Homann may suggest dental veneers to repair:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth separated by gaps
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Dental trauma from accidents

What Are Veneers Made Of?

Most often made of porcelain, dental veneers are custom-made to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.These porcelain veneers are carefully crafted to enhance smiles and address various dental imperfections, offering a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

How Long Do Composite Veneers Last Compared To Porcelain Veneers?

Imagine if dental veneers were like dishware. Porcelain veneers are like high-quality china plates – they’re strong and can last a long time, often around 10-15 years or even more with proper care. On the other hand, composite veneers are more like everyday dishes – they’re durable but might not last quite as long, usually around 5-7 years.

Just like how you handle your dishes, how you take care of your teeth affects how long they last. Taking good care of your veneers helps them stay in great shape for years to come!

Do Veneers Hurt?

The placement and aftercare for veneers should rarely hurt when proper techniques are used. With any procedure, there are always risks, and that even applies to something as simple as having your teeth whitened. When done by a trusted dentist in the United States, getting veneers shouldn’t involve shaving down all your teeth to pillars, a practice in countries where many have fallen victim to what is known as “Turkey teeth”.

Our approach focuses on preserving your dental health, ensuring you achieve a beautiful smile without unnecessary pain, damage, or extra costs. Your comfort and well-being are our top priorities, which is why we offer nitrous oxide solutions for our patients facing dental anxiety.

How Are Dental Veneers Applied?

Creating and applying veneers in Elk Grove Village, Illinois generally requires just two visits to our office. During your first visit, we will take molds of the teeth and pick out the perfect shade of porcelain.

We can either match the porcelain to your natural tooth color or pick a shade that is much lighter to transform the appearance of your entire smile. Our team may also prepare your teeth to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. This is done by removing a small layer of tooth enamel.

After your veneers are created at a dental laboratory, they will be sent back to our dental office. Dr. Brian Homann will check the veneers for quality and make any necessary adjustments. Your dental veneers are then adheredpermanently into place.

Are Veneers Covered By Dental Insurance?

While dental insurance might not usually cover veneers completely because they’re primarily for appearance, it’s still worth checking with your insurance company. Instead, they might have some helpful options to support you in getting the smile you want.

How Much Do Veneers Cost in Illinois?

Typically, composite veneers can vary between $450 and $1500 for each tooth, while porcelain veneers usually fall within the range of $1500 to $2500 for each tooth.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
