Porcelain Veneers

Correct a Variety of Teeth Imperfections with Porcelain Veneers

porcelain veneersPorcelain veneers can cover or correct all of the same cosmetic problems as dental bonding, including discolored, misshapen, gapped, chipped, or worn-down teeth. Consisting of thin shells that overlay the front surfaces of the teeth, veneers are constructed of porcelain to create a durable, natural-looking restoration. Your Kansas City dentist Dr. Meilink can transform your smile with porcelain veneers in just two office visits.

Taking Your Desires Into Consideration

The first step in your cosmetic dentistry consultation is discussing your desires with Dr. Meilink. He will take your wants and needs into consideration before recommending a course of treatment. If veneers are right for you, he will lay out a treatment plan using both science and his knowledge of aesthetics to give you a balanced, symmetrical smile you’ll be happy to show the world.

Placing Porcelain Veneers

Like bonding, veneers usually do not require anesthesia. The first step in the veneer process is for Dr. Meilink to gently buff away a small amount of your tooth enamel. This process ensures that the veneers can be placed without adding unnecessary thickness to your tooth. After a portion of the enamel is removed, he will take an impression of your teeth to send to a dental laboratory, where a ceramist will fabricate your porcelain veneers. You will then return to Dr. Meilink’s office for a second appointment, at which time he will place the veneers on your teeth. After ensuring they are the right size, shape, and color and making necessary adjustments, he will bond them to your teeth permanently using dental cement.
