Learn How Dental Veneers Can Make Teeth Appear Straight
If you know just about anything about teeth-straightening options, you probably know that traditional braces can take years to produce the desired result. So you may be asking yourself how a cosmetic treatment like dental veneers can give you the appearance of straight teen in as little as two visits.
The answer is simple: dental veneers don’t actually shift the position of teeth, but instead, use thin pieces of tooth-colored material to cover the front surfaces of your chompers. While dental veneers cannot be used as a form of “instant orthodontics” by every patient, they may be a great fit for you if your alignment issues are relatively mild.
If dental veneers are not right for you, we also offer a wide range of braces, including:
- Traditional braces with metal wires and brackets
- Ceramic braces that work just like traditional braces but use discreet, tooth-colored or clear ceramic for brackets and wires
The dental veneers process at our Leawood, KS dentist office is relatively simple to understand. Usually, the process only takes two appointments. During your first visit, we will:
- Take precise impressions of your teeth as they currently are so we can carefully plan your treatment and design your custom dental veneers
- Make room for your dental veneers and prepare your tooth surfaces for their placement by removing a small amount of your enamel
- Cover your prepared teeth with temporary dental veneers to give you a good looking smile while your custom veneers are made
When you visit us again the second time, we will remove your temporaries and use a special material to bond your dental veneers in place. Then we will make any final adjustments to ensure your dental veneers look great.
We offer a few different options for dental veneers. Depending on your current situation and the material used, we may even be able to place dental veneers that are thinner and require very little preparation of your natural teeth.
Along with making you look like you have a set of straight chompers, dental veneers can conceal a wide variety of smile flaws, including:
- Small chips
- Mild cracks
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that have small gaps between them
While chiefly used for cosmetic purposes, dental veneers can also provide restorative benefits because they also help to strengthen damaged teeth.
When you do visit us for dental veneers or any other dental treatment, our friendly team will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable. We’re happy to work at your pace and answer any questions you may have. We also provide various amenities to put you at ease, including:
- Cozy pillows
- Warm blankets
- Memory foam chairs
- Refreshing bottled water
- Private care rooms by request
- Adjustable televisions to entertain and distract you
- Dental sedation options to help relieve your dental anxiety
