Ways Wichita area patients can use Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an increasingly popular option for Wichita area patients who are seeking cosmetic enhancements to their smiles. When one or more teeth are imperfect and are having a negative effect on appearance, patients may ask a dental professional about the ways in which they can restore the beauty of their smiles. At East Wichita Dentist, in some situations we may recommend patients strongly consider the fabrication and placement of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are made to look like natural teeth. They are bonded over the front of teeth to cover problems such as breakage, misalignment, and misshapen teeth. Teeth that are stained or have small spaces between them may benefit from veneers. Porcelain veneers are strictly cosmetic and they do not typically improve the function of natural teeth.

Other solutions may be available to patients including dental crowns and dental bonding. However, veneers are long lasting, affordable, and stain-resistant. With proper care, they can last for years and provide a beautiful, natural-looking smile for adults who are ready to make dramatic changes to their smiles. Veneers are a popular choice for patients undergoing complete smile makeovers, though they may also be used to make minor, discrete changes.

Patients must first be determined as appropriate candidates for porcelain veneers treatment. The smile must be free from decay and disease. Patients who have problems such as TMD or bruxism may not be the best individuals for the placement of veneers as these concerns can cause breakage to the veneers and unnecessary wear and tear of both veneers and the natural tooth structure. These patients may be better suited for bonding until alternative solutions can be addressed including mouth guards and oral appliance therapy to reduce the problems associated with the clenching and grinding of teeth.

At East Wichita Dentist, we believe patients can have both a beautiful and healthy smile. We provide a wide selection of cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding to help achieve dazzling smiles that can improve confidence and appearance.

    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
