Wichita Dentist explains, what are Dental Veneers?

Cosmetic dentistry allows patients of all ages to make subtle or dramatic improvements to their smiles. With the various treatments available, patients can address nearly any dental concern. A popular treatment offered by East Wichita Dentist is dental veneers.

What are dental veneers? Wichita dentists describe dental veneers as restorations made of porcelain that are bonded to imperfect teeth to change the appearance of a patient’s smile. Porcelain is used for this restoration because it is beautiful and strong. Porcelain is the best material for cosmetic restorations because it closely mimics natural tooth enamel, better than any other material. The strength of porcelain also makes it a wonderful option for improving patient smiles.

Veneers can be used in a variety of situations, making them extremely versatile. Teeth that are crooked, unusually shaped, discolored, or broken can benefit from the placement of a dental veneer. They are bonded to the natural teeth and will last several decades with proper care. When patients obtain veneers, they will be instructed on the care needed to keep their veneers looking beautiful for years to come.

Nearly anyone is a candidate for dental veneers. Patients can consult with the doctor to discuss their concerns about the appearance of their teeth, and he can offer a number of options that could be performed to improve their smiles. Some situations may be improved with dental bonding, while alternative treatments, such as teeth whitening and orthodontics, may be better for others.

Once a patient has been determined to be a good candidate for dental veneers, an appointment will be scheduled for the initial preparation. The dentist will remove any enamel necessary to prepare the tooth, and will then take impressions of the area. The impressions are sent to an outside laboratory, which will then fabricate the veneer or veneers. The patient returns a week or two later, when the veneers are completed, for the bonding of the veneers to the teeth. The patient is then able to leave the practice with a beautiful, stunning 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
