For many, staying on top of your preventive care at home with routine flossing and brushing is the first step toward a lifelong smile. But what happens when something along the way tarnishes that grin? While your overall health is the top priority, being able to enjoy your smile should matter just as much. Whether you have experienced a chip or crack due to a physical accident or you have a difficult stain that just won’t seem to leave, your Kansas City, MO dentist at Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Kansas City is here to inform you of the ways porcelain veneers can enhance your grin.

Minimal Alteration to Your Teeth

A common anxiety that many individuals have regarding cosmetic dentistry is its level of invasiveness. There is often an assumption that enhancing something’s appearance will require a tremendous amount of poking, prodding, and even cutting and removing. Fortunately, that is not the case with this procedure! In fact, veneers only require a minimal amount of enamel sculpting to ensure a uniform fit that does not add any extra bulk. And that’s it! Your dentist will discuss the procedure with you beforehand, and if you have any questions, they will be more than happy to answer.

Addressing a Variety of Cosmetic Concerns

Veneers are custom-created to accommodate your grin. They are thin ultra-shells of dental porcelain shaped to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth and offer a variety of benefits.

A major pro that porcelain veneers offer our clients is the ability to address a variety of cosmetic concerns. For minor chips and scratches, veneers offer a permanent way to conceal any unevenness or discrepancy. If you have a difficult stain that will not come out, even with at-home or in-office teeth whitening treatment, veneers can cover these issues seamlessly!

In addition to chips, cracks, and stains, dental shells can help cosmetically lengthen or extend a tooth. This comes in handy for major gaps between teeth, as it provides a more even and consistent appearance.

A Seamless Finish

Every person’s smile is unique, and thus a “one size fits all” approach is not helpful. With this in mind, we can create porcelain shells that mimic your specific teeth, even down to the texture and overall shade. For more information about this process, contact our team today.
