Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, so you want to be able to put your best smile forward.

Dr. John P. Lynch, Dr. Sheila E. Lynch, and Dr. Frances E. Lynch are dentists at Lynch Dental Center in Chicago, where they provide fill dental services including porcelain veneers.
What You Need to Know About Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer is a thin but durable porcelain sheath that is shaped to fully cover the front of a tooth. They can be customized to match the color, size, and shape of your existing teeth. To prepare your teeth for veneers, Dr. Lynch will remove one millimeter of enamel from the surface of your tooth then make an impression to send to the lab where your permanent veneers will be made. Dr. Lynch will fit temporary veneers until you return to the office to have your porcelain veneers fitted one to two weeks later. Once your permanent veneers have been fitted, Dr. Lynch will adjust them for your personal comfort.
