For the last few years, veneers have been a trending dental topic on major social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram. Many creators that have flaunted their veneers have also bragged about seeking cheaper cosmetic care outside of a standard dental practice or in other countries like Turkey or Mexico.

Unfortunately, many of these creators have also faced the health consequences of seeing someone who hasn’t properly prepared their teeth for veneers. This phenomenon has become widely known as turkey teeth due to the thin, chiclet-like appearance the natural teeth take on after having veneers improperly laid on top of them.

Seeing an unlicensed dental professional to get veneers might initially save you money, but it can have devastating consequences for your health.

Consequences Of Getting Veneers Outside Of A Dental Practice

While this phenomenon of turkey teeth and veneers began in countries based in Europe, it’s becoming more common throughout the US as well. Cosmetic practices that do not have a medical license will tout these services alongside teeth whitening and other aesthetic services.

Usually, services in these settings will be priced much cheaper than professional cosmetic services you would receive at a dental practice. This is enticing to those who are looking to save and perfect their smile but unfortunately can cost them so much more if their teeth aren’t treated properly.

If plaque, food particles, or other types of decay are left behind while the veneers are fitted on a person’s teeth, this can lead to further decay or a deeply rooted tooth infection. The most extreme cases of veneers going wrong have led to some getting root canals, a full set of dental implants, dentures, and surgery involving the jaw. As a result of these extreme cases, clients spend tens of thousands of dollars on restoration services to fix their teeth.

Veneer Treatments Within A Dental Practice

The initial price tag of getting veneers at the dentist might seem too expensive, especially compared to cheaper cosmetic businesses that offer it. By seeking veneers within a dental practice, however, you’ll receive comprehensive dental care from a professional that will properly clean, prepare and place veneers on your natural teeth.

Don’t risk facing even more expensive health consequences by seeing a veneer specialist. Instead, seek a trusted cosmetic dental professional like those at Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Our practice will ensure you receive the care and look you’ve been dreaming about.

If the cost of this cosmetic dental treatment is concerning, then ask us about our special financing options. You’ll be able to get the beautiful porcelain veneers you’ve been looking for at a more affordable price each month.

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
