Debunking Common Myths About Veneers

Hundreds of patients come into Chicago Veneers every year and ask Dr. Ema the same questions about veneers: Will my smile look artificial? Is the process painful? Are veneers too expensive? At Chicago Veneers, our mission is to answer all of your questions and help you feel confident in your smile – because no one should have to live with a smile they don’t love. Veneers are one of the safest and most effective options for improving your smile, however, many patients are confused by the common misconceptions surrounding the procedure. Luckily, we are here to set the record straight.

Myth #1: Veneers look obvious or artificial

The veneers we use at Chicago Veneers allow Dr. Ema to customize the color, size, shape, and length of your veneers to fit perfectly into your mouth and appear as natural as possible. When you come to your first appointment, Dr. Ema will take impressions to ensure that your veneers are the same thickness as your natural teeth. As a result, your veneers will blend in and no one but you and Dr. Ema will know they’re not your natural set of teeth!

Myth #2: Getting veneers is painful

The process of veneer application is minimally invasive. However, in our office, Dr. Ema provides patients with local anesthetic for all major dental procedures. During the application, you might feel pressure, but you shouldn’t feel any pain. Your veneers should not cause you pain after application either.

Myth #3: Veneers are difficult and expensive to maintain

Once your veneers have been placed, taking care of them is just as simple as maintaining your natural teeth. Sometimes, long-term maintenance like using a nightguard may improve the lasting quality and appearance of your veneers. For this reason, we will include a nightguard with the cost of your veneers and Dr. Ema will see you for a follow-up appointment and your regular biannual cleanings!

Myth #4: Veneers are out of my price range

Although porcelain veneers are an investment, they are an investment in a better you! With Chicago Veneers’ membership plans, we make paying off your new smile easier than ever! Plus, our VIP membership plan even gives you an initial discount on your veneers. At Chicago Veneers, making the process of getting veneers as straightforward and easy for you is just a part of our dedication to providing the best dentistry in Chicago to our patients. Dr. Ema will make sure you know exactly what your treatment process looks like every step of the way. Still have questions about veneers? Give us a call at (312) 435-0411.
