Improving Your Smile’s Beauty With Veneers

February 26, 2019

Many people assume that their smiles have too many problems to be corrected with cosmetic dentistry. However, not only can we offer solutions to a variety of issues, including a tooth’s shade and color, but we can often address these issues with a single procedure. How do dental veneers improve smiles in Olathe, KS? What benefits will they offer?

Transforming the Teeth

A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain that covers the front and the sides of your teeth. As a result, they completely transform the shade and shape of your teeth, offering a smile makeover for some patients. Placement typically takes just two visits and helps address an array of cosmetic and even restorative concerns. The porcelain we create them with mimics the appearance of tooth enamel and also contains stain-resistant properties. We may shade them to ensure they blend seamlessly with the smile. They also have the ability to withstand powerful bite forces and pressure.

Creating Your Custom Restorations

First, we need to make room to ensure a comfortable and lifelike fit. We remove a thin layer of tooth enamel before taking detailed impressions. The impressions allow an expert ceramist at a dental lab to design and create the restoration. Once complete, the patient returns to the office. We then check the fit and if needed, make a few minor adjustments. We finally place the completed veneer with a powerful bonding agent. Proper care and attention could increase the chance of the restoration lasting decades.

Treatment Options

Placement often addresses minor damage, such as chips or even fractures. We also help lengthen worn down teeth or reshape naturally malformed teeth. We may place them to help fill gaps between the teeth or to even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. We’ve also used them to mask permanent teeth stains. Known as intrinsic discoloration, these stains forms below the tooth enamel and may be difficult to remove with teeth whitening. Fortunately, we can employ a restoration to hide them. We also hide issues with the tooth’s surface, such as grooves and pits. For a more cost-effective smile makeover, we may combine them with dental bonding and teeth whitening.
