Find out how dental veneers could transform your smile and appearance.
Do you find yourself hiding your smile in photos? Do special events and business meetings have you self-conscious because your smile is discolored, misshapen, or crooked? If so, then you may be wondering how our Wichita, KS, cosmetic dentist Dr. John Lewis can help. Porcelain veneers have become a popular way to enhance and completely makeover your appearance. Here are some facts about veneers.
They fix most cosmetic dental issues
These thin porcelain shells can really do so much to alter and improve a person’s smile. Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile and can fix most issues that our patients here in Wichita, KS, are concerned about. Since veneers are designed to cover the entire front surface of your teeth, they can correct these common imperfections,
Excessively short or stubby teeth (veneers can lengthen them)
Chips and cracks
Gaps between teeth
Malformed or oddly shaped teeth
Severely discolored teeth
Crowding or slightly crooked smiles
Pitted enamel or other texture issues
They can reduce tooth sensitivity
There are many reasons people deal with tooth sensitivity but one of the most common reasons is worn-down or thin enamel. This is common in those who grind their teeth. If you develop tooth sensitivity, which causes lingering discomfort in the teeth after being exposed to hot or cold temperatures, know that porcelain veneers may be able to reduce or even get rid of your sensitivity. If you’re looking to reduce sensitivity with veneers, talk to your dentist first.
They can give your teeth an extra strengthening boost
Veneers are incredibly resilient because they are made from high-quality porcelain. This means that by simply applying this thin layer of porcelain to the front of your teeth we can actually help reinforce and strengthen your teeth. While porcelain veneers should not be used as a restorative treatment when teeth aren’t structurally sound, they can help to provide additional support for your healthy natural smile.
They are customized to you
Dental veneers are made to fit your needs and your smile. After all, everyone has differently sized and shaped teeth and so you need a dentist who will take all these factors into account, along with the results you want, to craft porcelain veneers that give you the smile you’ve always wanted to have.
