If you’ve got several smile flaws, you may think you need multiple cosmetic dental treatments to beautify your smile. But when Glen Ellyn, IL dentist Dr. John C. Workman applies porcelain dental veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth, they’ll conceal numerous dental flaws. He uses e.max veneers, which are made of a high-quality ceramic known for its durability and natural appearance.
Your e.max veneers will:
- Hide chips, minor cracks, discoloration, misshapen teeth, crooked edges, and minor gaps
- Extend worn-down teeth
- Blend seamlessly with your smile
- Strengthen your teeth so they are less susceptible to damage
- Require less modification of your teeth than some other veneers
- Last for at least a decade with proper care
- Help your smile look healthier and younger

The most wonderful thing that I’ve realized over the last 10 years is the materials that we have today can absolutely make veneers make your teeth look absolutely normal, natural. They don’t look like veneers. It’s disappointing to some people that people aren’t running over and saying, “Your veneers look wonderful,“ when in reality, most patients don’t get that. What I do know is that from what I experience with veneers is that the veneers look so natural because they look like they belong in my face, and the shades are so nice that they look very, very much like real teeth. They are real teeth, they’ve just been covered over with something that looks more pleasing than what your teeth were in the beginning.
The other thing that I’m just totally blown away by is the materials we use today in that the gum tissues don’t recede with these materials. I’ve got patients who’ve had them in there for 10, 15 years, and the gums are as healthy and beautiful as they were the day we put them in, which you don’t see that with some of the older materials. It really makes a person who is smiling like this, now they’re smiling big because they’re not self-conscious about what their teeth look like.
I can tell you that I have personal experience with that with my wife. I’d say, “Would you like me to fix those teeth for you?“ She’d say, “No,“ because she doesn’t like going to the dentist. I say, “I’m your sweetheart. I’ll take good care of you.“ For many years, she said, “No.“ We had one of our kids get married and she had one of her granddaughters in her lap, and we took a picture of her smiling with her granddaughter. Of course, grandmas smile big with their granddaughters in their laps. We got the picture back and we were sitting to look at them. She said to me, “Do my teeth look like that?“ I said, “Yes, they do.“ She says, “Would you do some veneers for me?“
Everybody’s story is a little different, but for my wife, she didn’t realize that they didn’t look very nice. To be able to do that for your wife, I mean, it’s special for a patient, but to be able to do that for your wife where now she’s able to smile bigger and be confident and not have her grandchildren say, “Grandma, why are your teeth so yellow,“ that was a big one—that was a big one.
Try Out Your New Looks with Our Trial Smile Program
Thanks to our trial smile program, you can try out your new smile before committing to it. Dr. Workman can create sturdy composite shells that will provide a look similar to veneers. You’ll be able to wear them for a few days to “live in” your smile and see what family and friends think of it. We’ll deduct the $75 cost from the cost of your dental veneers if you decide to go ahead and get them.
Get a Great Smile in Just a Few Visits
Dental veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because they make such a big smile impact in such a short time. With e-max veneers, it typically takes just two appointments after an initial consultation to get your gorgeous new grin. Compared to some other types of veneers, Dr. Workman has to remove only a tiny portion of enamel to prepare your teeth for e.max veneers. There is minimal discomfort; most patients don’t even need anesthesia. You’ll return for a follow-up visit to make sure they look and feel fantastic!
To see if you’re a candidate for dental veneers, call 630-448-8418. Our Glen Ellyn, IL dentist office is just a short drive from Panfish Park.
