Dentist in Wichita KS helps patients achieve beautiful smiles with veneers

Many characteristics add up to a beautiful smile. The color, shape, size, and spacing of the teeth all play a role in the way a smile looks. If your teeth could use some improvement with any of these areas, you might be a great candidate for porcelain veneers.

These thin strips of porcelain cover the front surfaces of the teeth. The wafer-thin pieces are extremely strong and durable and closely resemble tooth enamel. Porcelain is used because, like tooth enamel, it is translucent, which makes a very natural-looking cosmetic enhancement. Additionally, porcelain does not stain like natural tooth enamel, which can keep your smile looking dazzling for longer.

The real power of veneers lies in versatility. They can be used to improve the appearance of the following characteristics:
  1. Color – Teeth become stained for a variety of reasons, and although some can be fixed with professional whitening, other stains can be harder to remove. Since porcelain veneers fit over the teeth, they can mask the permanent stains and reveal a vibrant, white smile.
  2. Shape – For some people, habits such as tooth grinding can alter the shape of the teeth. Other people simply aren't happy with the shape of their teeth. Porcelain veneers can be fabricated in a variety of shapes and sizes to cover the teeth and create an entirely new smile.
  3. Spacing – If your teeth have small gaps and minor issues with alignment, porcelain veneers can mask those issues.
While porcelain veneers are excellent for many people, there are some situations where they are not the proper solution. If you have significant alignment issues, orthodontics are typically a better solution.

During your consultation for veneers, it is important to detail your idea of a "dream smile." This will allow us to have a good idea of the final look you are trying to achieve. Once a plan for the veneers has been established, the teeth will be prepared by removing an ultra-thin layer of tooth enamel. Molds are then taken and sent off to the laboratory for custom fabrication. Once the final set is complete, you will return to the office for permanent placement.

If you are in or around the Wichita, KS area, call our team today to learn more about how porcelain veneers can transform your smile.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
