Modern cosmetic dentistry makes smile improvement simpler than it used to be, but when you have several different blemishes to address, the process may seem intimidating. At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Kansas City, we strive to improve patients’ smiles while minimizing alterations to their healthy teeth. With custom-designed porcelain veneers, we can address a number of different cosmetic issues at once, all with a single procedure. Veneers are thin shells of lifelike dental porcelain that are crafted according your teeth’s specifications, and then bonded onto the fronts of one or more teeth. Veneers can create a brand new smile in nearly an instant, boosting your confidence even when you have multiple cosmetic concerns.

How Porcelain Veneers Are Made

The beauty of porcelain veneers is that they’re created to blend in almost seamlessly with your smile, and they require minimal preparation to your teeth. To determine if veneers are the right option, your dentist will first perform a careful examination to gauge their health and integrity. To prepare your teeth for veneers, your dentist will carefully sculpt away a thin layer of enamel from their front surfaces, and then carefully measure the prepared teeth using advanced digital imaging technology. The measurements and a mold of your teeth will be sent to a trusted dental lab, where a skilled technician will use them to create your custom veneers out of lifelike dental porcelain. When your dentist receives them from the lab, you’ll return to our office to have them carefully bonded in place, completing your smile’s makeover.
