Veneers in Kansas City, MO
When you meet new people, whether socially or at work, the first thing they may notice about you is your smile. If your teeth have flaws in them, such as stains due to medications or chips, your smile may embarrass you. Fortunately, our dentists at Smile Palace in Kansas City, MO, can provide veneers to cover these flaws and give your teeth a new look.
What is a Veneer?
A veneer is an ultra-thin layer of material that goes onto a tooth with chips, stains or fine cracks in it. Along with making your tooth look new again, applying a veneer can prevent the tooth from sustaining further damage. The procedure for improving your tooth’s appearance with a veneer only takes about three sessions, starting with a consultation.
The Process of Getting Veneers
Our dentists at Smile Palace will do a consultation with you to discuss your options for improving your teeth’ appearance, including getting veneers. If you choose the thin pieces of material, you will select the material for them, which is porcelain or composite resin.
Most people in Kansas City, MO, choose porcelain veneers because they reflect the light like enamel so that they look more like natural teeth. The dentist will then assess your teeth and clean them if there are no problems with them. If there are flaws on the teeth, like cracks or chips, the dentist may reshape them so that the veneer hides imperfections.
After the teeth are ready to receive the veneers, they will need prepping for the adhesive to stick to the teeth. A thin layer of enamel will need to be removed, and what is remaining will be slightly etched so that the adhesive, along with the veneer, doesn’t slide off.
A light application of a chemical will be etched on to each tooth, and then the final trimming of each veneer takes place before they get cemented onto the teeth. Our dentists at Smile Palace in Kansas City, MO, are experts at applying veneers, so you will have a natural-looking smile that is flawless when the work is complete.
