When you have aesthetic concerns with the appearance of your smile, you may assume major transformation requires several procedures and visits. But what if we could enhance your smile in two visits with one procedure? In today’s blog, your Olathe, KS, dentist talks about improving smile beauty with porcelain veneers.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin dental restorations that cover the front and sides of your teeth, significantly changing the appearance and color. We can use them to mask the permanent teeth stains that may resist teeth whitening treatment. Our team can fill gaps between teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have an alternative to braces or aligners. Placement could lengthen teeth worn down by grinding or clenching, and also address minor chips and cracks. We can correct misshapen teeth too! Porcelain is a very durable material that can handle daily bite forces, but can also be color matched to blend with the rest of your smile with ease. In fact, the same material is often used to create crowns and replacement teeth too!
Creating and Placing Your Restorations
Each one is custom-made for your smile and ensures a comfortable fit and a lifelike appearance. To get started, we will numb the teeth receiving them and gently remove outer layers of enamel. We then take detailed digital images of the prepared teeth, and then use them in a dental lab setting to design and fabricate your restorations. When they’re ready, you will return to the office so we can check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and then attach them with a powerful bonding agent. They have the potential to stay in place for years to come, and routine care can help them stay bright and protect the teeth they’re attached to from infection or gum disease.
Our team can also combine these with other treatments for a smile makeover. We could whiten the smile beforehand so they match your brightest smile. We can use bonding and contouring to address the side and rear teeth, reserving veneers of the most visible front facing ones. We could also discuss clear aligners to correct major misalignment too. If you have any questions about how we transform a smile with porcelain veneers, then contact our team today to learn more.
