Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Dental Care Olathe bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers cover up imperfections such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. They also help strengthen delicate teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What's the procedure for getting dental veneers?

After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you come back for a second appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.

When your veneers are ready, you come back to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, the dental expert cleans and etches the surface of your teeth. Then, your dental expert uses a specialized cement and light source that bonds the cement securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What’s great about veneers?

Veneers are a natural-looking means to correct misshapen, cracked, or crooked teeth. They offer these benefits, too:

  • Stain resistance
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
