What are Porcelain Veneers?

A fast way to improve your smile and conceal crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth is with porcelain veneers in Chicago and Hinsdale at Weller Dental. Cosmetic veneers are slim covers created with porcelain, secured to the front of your teeth to enhance the appearance of your smile. Offering customized veneers and minimal prep, cosmetic dentist Dr. Jeffrey Weller can help improve the size, color, length, or shape of your teeth. 

Veneers are one of the most common aesthetic alternatives in dentistry today available for adults. When done correctly, they can look like natural teeth. If you are an adult wanting a beautiful new smile, schedule a consultation at our Chicago or Hinsdale, IL, practice to learn more about veneers and if they're right for you. Porcelain veneers can also be a part of a comprehensive smile makeover treatment plan at Weller Dental.

what are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, semi-translucent, custom-made "shells" of porcelain that fit precisely over an existing tooth. Many individuals choose porcelain over composite dental materials because:

  • Veneers offer a more natural tooth appearance.

  • Porcelain veneers are made of processed glass and aren't porous like simple bonding.

  • Veneers are more robust and, therefore, more resistant to chipping and staining.

  • Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.

  • The color of porcelain matches the shade of brightness you desire.

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers in Chicago and Hinsdale are adults who want a new, rejuvenated, and confident smile. Cosmetic veneers can hide stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly spaced or shaped. 

At Weller Dental, your cosmetic veneers will be custom-created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. To personalize your treatment plan, Dr. Weller will listen to your objectives and aesthetic concerns at your consultation. 

Dr. Weller may also determine whether you're a good candidate for a cosmetic veneer procedure by analyzing the total health of your mouth. Patients considering porcelain veneers should have healthy gums and not habitually grind their teeth and clench their jaws. If you have bruxism (teeth grinding), we will address this during the consult, as this could compromise the long-term result of your veneers.


After deciding on your personalized veneer treatment program, Dr. Weller takes digital or physical impressions of your teeth and sends them to a lab. Per Dr. Weller's design, an oral design lab technician designs and sculpts each veneer. When your custom veneers are ready, Dr. Weller prepares your teeth so the veneers fit perfectly. Doing this allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Weller makes minor adjustments for the best fit.

what can i expect after getting veneers In Chigago?

Since getting veneers usually doesn't require anesthesia, you should be able to resume your daily activities following your appointment. You might experience some sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a few days, but that should subside naturally. Your veneers should be cared for like natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. 

While porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant than natural enamel, you should avoid staining food and drinks to keep your veneers white. Do not chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice, to prevent chipping your veneers. It would be best if you continued to go to dental exams and cleanings at Weller Dental so that we can track the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Weller will tell you if your cosmetic veneers must be replaced or repaired.

does insurance cover veneers?

Porcelain veneers are an elective treatment, so they're generally not included in dental insurance. Although, Weller Dental does take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to make your veneers more affordable. Dr. Weller will personalize your plan at the consultation to meet your needs and budget. A financial team member will discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.

Porcelain Veneers FAQ


Porcelain veneers can last up to a decade or longer with proper care. Our team can identify if a veneer needs to be replaced during your regularly scheduled dental exams. You should also adhere to the appropriate aftercare instructions to ensure your veneers last as long as possible.



Suppose you want to enhance the appearance of your smile without the need for dental implants. In that case, porcelain veneers may be ideal for you. During a thorough consultation at Weller Dental, our team can identify your smile concerns and determine if veneers are the proper treatment for your goals. Learn more by scheduling an appointment with us today.



Porcelain veneers themselves cannot get cavities. However, the teeth that the veneers are attached to can be susceptible to cavities. So, it is crucial to maintain an optimal oral care routine and attend dental exams and cleanings.



After porcelain veneers have reached the end of their lifespan or become worn down before that time, they will need to be replaced. It is important to note that while porcelain veneers are replaceable, they are not reversible. Additionally, if your porcelain veneers were installed elsewhere and need replacement, don't hesitate to contact our Chicago and Hinsdale, IL, practice today.



Porcelain veneers are taken care of just like regular teeth. After installing them, practice good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing to maintain them, including routine dental cleanings and exams.
