What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain facings that can last for up to 20 years and look completely natural. They are used to change the shape, color, size and spacing of your teeth. With Dr. Marinic’s artistic viewpoint and experienced hand, he can create a beautiful, natural-looking smile that is uniquely you.

What are the Advantages of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers look like real teeth and have a lifelike appearance. Additionally, they are durable, will wear like natural tooth enamel, and will not discolor like dental bonding.

Dr. Marinic uses only the highest quality porcelain veneers and materials on his patients. He carefully places each one individually to ensure that you get a beautiful, natural-looking and comfortable smile. The result will be a beautiful smile that you’ll want to show the world.

When you are considering veneers, Dr. Marinic will encourage you to see examples of his work with other patients, so that you can be certain about what you want for your own smile.

Dr. Marinic is often called a “perfectionist” by his patients because of the individualized attention and craftsmanship he puts into every dental procedure he performs.

When you and Dr. Marinic decide that you are ready to use porcelain veneers to improve your smile, you will work together as partners to create the healthy, beautiful smile that you are looking for.

In addition to a full oral examination and xrays, Dr. Marinic will photograph your mouth and jaw using our intraoral camera.

Dr. Marinic Will Carefully Design Your Veneers

Next, Dr. Marinic will take study models of your teeth, and create a waxup of what he expects that your smile will look like after your cosmetic transformation is complete. You will review this model with Dr. Marinic, and decide what you would like to have your smile look like. The choice will always be up to you.

Once you’ve approved the model, Dr. Marinic will begin his work on your teeth. He will prepare your teeth for the new veneers, and give you temporary veneers while the lab is preparing your veneers to his specifications

Your new veneers will give you a smile that you will absolutely love.

Individualized delivery makes all the difference

When your new veneers come in from the lab, Dr. Marinic first examines them to make certain that they are done to his specifications. Then he will work with the veneers by hand to perfect them, fixing the incisal edges to make sure that the pitch and bevel are exactly right. His attention to detail ensures that when he hand-places each veneer into place in your mouth, you will absolutely love the look and comfort of your new smile.

Our patient, a “50 something” successful Cook County area businesswoman, had a high visibility profession that involved routine contact with business executives. She was becoming self conscious about her smile. Older restorations including gold onlays, porcelain with metal crowns, composite veneers and porcelain with metal bridges had all begun to fail or show signs of significant, yet normal wear.

Porcelain was fracturing off and certain wear factors reflecting a the development of a poor bite occlusion relationship. Overuse of teeth whitening compounds were affecting both her gum tissues and tooth enamel, causing additional problems of tooth sensitivity.

After consulting with the patient and providing her with several different treatment choices, it was decided that all restorative products and procedures would incorporate the use of premium porcelain materials. Her smile makeover included 10 veneers, 3 dental implants, and multiple crowns.

Not only does our patient have great looking teeth… but she is now able to smile more normally. Notice how the upper lip now travels up further, revealing a broader smile.

Smiling with confidence is now effortless for our patient. She senses it has improved her on the job functioning as a sales executive and has caused many of her acquaintances to comment on how dazzling her smile is.

Ian had a crown on one of his front teeth, which had been there for many years and needed to be replaced. We discovered, however that the root of that tooth was no longer healthy, and could not support a new crown. We replaced the tooth with an implant instead. Seven years later, Ian says he doesn’t even notice the implant. It feels and looks perfectly natural, and he doesn’t worry about eating whatever he wants. More recently, Ian had some inlays and crowns placed in the back of his mouth. Using CEREC one-visit technology, we were able to do
