A Beautiful Smile with Porcelain Veneers

A Beautiful Smile With Porcelain Veneers - Kansas City - Drake Family Dentistry

How can it be that one third of Americans are dissatisfied with their smiles? Discovered by the American Association of Orthodontists, this statistic means many individuals here in Kansas City are likely stressing over stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth. For some, whitening strips won’t work on their teeth, or braces aren’t appealing to them. In these cases, porcelain veneers help many of our patients achieve a long-lasting, healthier look for their smiles.

Benefits of Veneers

We define veneers as wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Making the decision to apply porcelain veneers can transform your smile. To learn more about veneers, read on.


Porcelain is actually more stain resistant than natural teeth, and so are porcelain veneers. This means coffee drinkers can have pearly whites as well. That being said, you don’t have to worry about veneers being unnaturally white, because each set is made custom to a specific color of your choosing.

How Veneers Feel

As a material, porcelain is very compatible with your gums. Porcelain veneers also have the durability to protect your natural teeth from sensitivity to cold and other eating factors, so frozen treats are enjoyable once again. Additionally, veneers can serve as a comfortable and quicker alternative to braces, by shielding crooked or unevenly spaced teeth from sight.

Smile Shape

A wider smile can be created with veneers that attach to rear teeth, making them more visible. Reshaping a smile with veneers can also positively highlight cheekbones and lips.

    I like that veneers are thin enough that many reviews I have seen state that there is not much difference in the feel of the teeth. It would be a really good option to consider to cover the cracks that come from chipped tooth repairs. Also, I bet it would be a great choice to repair the color loss of dead teeth.

    I’m thinking about getting some veneers. I like the advice about how the benefits of veneers are that they are stain resistant. Another thing to consider is to get your veneers from a professional that accepts your insurance so that you don’t have to worry about cost.

    My husband has a large gap in between his front teeth, and we are looking at veneers as an option to fix that. He doesn’t want braces, and veneers seem like a great way to create a natural looking smile quickly. I didn’t realize that porcelain was so stain resistant, but that good to know! Thanks for sharing!

    Since veneers are custom-made to cover your teeth, they’d probably be great for a natural smile. This could also help them stay on so that you keep your teeth looking perfect. In order to ensure they are created and fitted properly, you’d probably want to find a dentist that specializes in veneers and has the most up-to-date equipment and knowledge so they can give you the best procedure possible.

    I am glad that you mentioned that porcelain veneers are durable and can protect your teeth from sensitivity! That is something that I will have to talk with a dentist about trying out. My teeth are really sensitive and toothpaste hasn’t really helped. I’ve always wanted to feel more confident with my teeth but have been afraid of whitening them because they are so sensitive. This sounds like veneers could be a safer option for me. Thanks for sharing!
