Do you believe that a flawless, white smile is out of reach? Less than 30 years ago, someone who had misaligned teeth, teeth that were different lengths, or even deeply stained teeth would have had to resign themselves to less than perfect grins. Today, however, that has changed and Dr. Shane Sudman of Atrium Family Dental in New Lenox, IL can work with any of our patients to give them a treatment known as porcelain veneers.
As part of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers seem to be a nearly perfect solution to a long list of dental issues. Not only are dental veneers a part of cosmetic dentistry, but can also be said to provide some of our patients with restorative dentistry solutions too.

When you lose all or most of your teeth on an upper or lower jaw, it affects all parts of your life. While you may think it leads to some necessary changes in the diet and nothing more, losing many teeth causes most of us to feel poorly about our smile and even avoid social situations. It can make changes in how we talk and look and it does demand radical changes to the way we eat.
