Restore Your Youthful Smile!

May 26, 2022

People notice, as they age, that their smile simply isn’t as stunning as it once was. Years of use can lead to damage, from chips to larger breaks.

And oral health is affected by many things. Diabetes, pregnancy, cancer, all can lead to mouths that just don’t look quite as beautiful as they did when you were younger.

Porcelain veneers can revitalize your smile with a new set of teeth, with a natural appearance. Nobody will ever know you’ve had them done!

Today, your Kansas City, MO dentist talks to you a bit about how veneers are a great solution for aging teeth.

How Could This Benefit Me?

Teeth endure a constant barrage of assaults on a daily basis. From the standard wear and tear of chewing food to accidents involving glasses.

Or maybe they’ve shrunk due to grinding or acid wear. Bruxism, or the grinding of the teeth, can flatten teeth over time. Not only that, but the action can adjust the way the teeth are situated.

For whatever reason, porcelain veneers allow a dentist to craft a beautiful new smile right on top of your old one!

How Does the Procedure Work?

With porcelain veneers, a skilled ceramicist crafts new teeth that act as caps over your natural teeth. This allows for shaping to create a new, perfectly aligned smile instantly, rather than the wait of other methods.

Is This Right for Me?

Your first step would be to schedule an appointment with a dentist. Once you two have discussed the range of options, and have decided that porcelain veneers are the right solution for your mouth, it’s time to plan.

You have many options as to how you would like your new smile to look, but our chief concern is always to craft a smile that is healthy and strong. After that, it should look naturally beautiful.

Veneers are designed to last for many years if handled appropriately. The porcelain is as strong as your natural enamel, and the adhesive is just as strong if not stronger.

Rewind the Clock on Your Smile!

Porcelain veneers are a great solution for an older client looking to revitalize and renew their smile. It isn’t nearly as invasive as, say, implants, and the ceramicist has a wide array of possibilities in crafting your new teeth. Minor problems with alignment can be erased in a single session!
