Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes a patient has a functional smile, but wishes it was straighter, whiter, and more even looking. Porcelain veneers have become an extremely popular cosmetic dental treatment thanks to their ability to swiftly transform the appearance of a smile.

Veneers are ideal for those who have stained or discolored front teeth that don’t respond to whitening; teeth that are gapped, overlapped, or crooked; chipped or cracked teeth; or an uneven gum line.

Our Shawnee, Kansas dental office offers two types of veneers; traditional porcelain, and the thinner Lumineers. Both are thin porcelain shells designed to be adhered to the front surfaces of the teeth, creating a natural, brilliant smile. A consultation with Dr. Kapoor can help you decide which option is best for you.

The Process:

Veneers typically require two visits. At the first visit, measurements and molds will be taken so the veneers can be constructed for a perfect fit and a brilliant smile. At the second visit, the teeth are carefully prepped by removing a thin layer of enamel, and the veneers are bonded to the teeth.

Porcelain veneers are the traditional style, require the removal of significant enamel for a strong, permanent bond, and are a solution intended to be left in place. They are stronger than Lumineers, but cannot be removed once they are installed.

Lumineers are even thinner porcelain shells which require a smaller amount of enamel to be removed. This means that there is enough enamel left in place that the veneers can be taken off later and your original smile restored, if desired.

Veneers require the same care as your regular regimen, including brushing, flossing, and bi-annual dental visits. Don’t use your veneers to try to open things, or to bite or cut things that are not food. If a single piece of veneer is broken, we can usually repair or replace it without redoing the entire mouth.

If you would like to schedule a consult for traditional porcelain veneers or Lumineers, call our Shawnee dental office at 913-553-4984 to request an appointment.
