As a practice that emphasizes cosmetic and implant dentistry, we believe in the importance of feeling fantastic about your smile. It is our hope that all of our patients — and everyone else — will gleefully show off their smiles with the utmost confidence. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Many of us wish our teeth looked different, which causes us to mask our smiles. From feeling self-conscious about stains to trying to hide gaps, lots of people simply don’t feel too great about their teeth. Porcelain veneers, however, provide a great solution to many cosmetic issues. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist talks about veneers and the ways they can help you regain confidence in your smile once again.

No More Gaps

Because veneers are made specifically for your unique needs, your dentist can craft them to alter the appearance of your smile — no matter your needs. They are made from a durable, bio-compatible porcelain that is affixed to the front of your teeth. If you have large gaps, your dentist can craft them in a way that will make your teeth appear closer together. If you have teeth that are crooked, veneers can also minimize this misalignment. Similarly, they can also mask chips and cracks — particularly those affecting your front teeth. Restorative procedures, like crowns, are more effective on back teeth, so porcelain veneers offer a solution to more visible ones. Again, because they cover your teeth, your dentist can craft them to meet a variety of your needs.

An Effective Whitening Tool

Professional teeth whitening can be very effective for removing stains that are close ot the surface. However, they don’t always get the job done when you have intrinsic ones — or those deeper within the tooth. Veneers, on the other hand, cover your teeth, so they can adeptly mask any stubborn discoloration that simply won’t go away. Because they are made from high-grade porcelain that looks extremely similar to natural teeth, they will blend in seamlessly within your smile. Your dentist will also color-match them, so they will look right at home amongst your other teeth.

Keeping Them Bright Is Easy

One of the biggest perks of veneers is that they are incredibly easy to maintain. You just need to brush them with non-abrasive toothpaste twice a day. Because the porcelain closely resembles teeth, just treat it as you do the rest of your smile. Be sure to keep visiting your dentist twice a year for checkups, so they can make sure everything looks great and healthy.
