Do you ever wonder what it would be like to have a stunning, flawless smile? Do you ever wish there was a quick, simple way to correct dental imperfections and enjoy dazzling pearly whites? If so, you will be thrilled to know that Dr. Jessica T. Emery specializes in the placement of beautiful, natural-looking porcelain veneers at her Chicago, Illinois practice, Sugar Fix Dental Loft. If you are tired of having cracked, chipped, broken, discolored, slightly misaligned, or unevenly spaced teeth, veneers are a wonderful solution.
Porcelain veneers are customized tooth coverings, specially made to mimic your natural tooth enamel. When placed, the veneers hide any visible flaws, resulting in an impeccable smile. Dr. Emery and the talented team at Sugar Fix Dental want to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, so you can smile confidently and often. Plus, we provide a warm, pleasant atmosphere so you can enjoy your entire journey toward a brilliant smile. To learn more about porcelain veneers, contact our Chicago practice today.
Porcelain Veneers Placement Procedure
Before beginning any cosmetic procedure, we conduct a consultation in which Dr. Emery inquires about your cosmetic goals, and determines whether you are a good candidate for the desired treatment. Once we establish that porcelain veneers are right for your needs and goals, the process is relatively quick, and goes as follows:
- A very small amount of tooth enamel is removed from the natural tooth. Because we practice conservative dentistry, there is minimal tooth preparation for the veneers.
- An impression is taken of your teeth and the mold is sent out to a laboratory, where the customized porcelain veneers are fabricated.
- When you return for your next appointment, the porcelain veneers are placed over your natural teeth and bonded with dental cement.
- Dr. Emery polishes your veneers and ensures they look and feel beautiful and to your liking.
The entire process should take just two appointments, and we make sure your experience here is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. You can walk out of our dental loft with the bright, gorgeous smile you have always wanted.

Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers is to meet with Dr. Emery at our Chicago dental loft. Porcelain veneers are ideal for virtually anyone who wishes to correct minor or extensive dental flaws, such as:
- Certain misalignment issues
- Chipped, cracked, or broken front teeth
- Teeth that appear to be too short
- Wide gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth that may be too sharp or pointy
The tooth that needs repair should be relatively healthy with no evidence of decay. Porcelain veneers serve a cosmetic purpose, enhancing the appearance of the teeth, and do not actually restore strength or functionality. If porcelain veneers are not right for you, Dr. Emery will recommend another course of action to suit your needs.
Risks or Side Effects of Porcelain Veneers
There are very few risks or side effects associated with the placement of porcelain veneers. Individuals must maintain good oral health habits, including brushing, flossing, and having routine checkups, as decay can build up underneath the veneers. Additionally, patients must understand that veneers placement is irreversible. Dr. Emery will provide you with proper aftercare instructions so you can maintain your porcelain veneers for a very long time.
