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.

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.
