The porcelain shells used for this treatment can help disguise the appearance of intrinsic discoloration, minor chips, or misshapen teeth. Dr. Browne and his team in Prairie Village, KS, are here today to discuss this cosmetic process.

Porcelain Veneers Can Make Your Smile Shine

At our office, we offer veneers or Lumineers. Both of these options offer several benefits, and the one you choose will depend on your goals and specific needs. Porcelain veneers use tooth-shaped shells to cover the front of your teeth. As mentioned above, this is a great option for patients who have several imperfections they would like to correct. Instead of going through whitening, bonding, and contouring to achieve an even-appearing and blemish-free smile, veneers can disguise these problems all at once.

Your dentist will have a consultation with you before the procedure. Your gums and pearly whites must be healthy before any enhancements can be done. Before having them placed, your teeth will need to be shaved down so that the cosmetics can fit properly. This preparation process can be mildly invasive and is an irreversible process. While this may sound intimidating, it is safe for your smile. The shells will last for many years with proper care. You will be able to eat, drink, and do your oral hygiene as usual after having them placed.

Lumineers Can Boost Your Smile

If you are interested in having this done, but have problems with enamel erosion, Lumineers are a helpful alternative. Similar to the above-mentioned cosmetic treatment, this option uses thin shells that are placed over the front of your teeth. The difference is that Lumineers are thinner and may not require as much preparation. This means that your teeth may not need to be reshaped, or only a small amount of it will need to be. Like veneers, this is a great option for patients who have problems such as discoloration, misshapen teeth, or minor chips. Like all other cosmetic options, you will need a consultation before beginning this process.

You may be wondering if this option can correct more severe cracks or chips. The answer to this is, no, these methods cannot fix serious damage. Instead, your dentist may recommend restorations such as crowns to help mend this. It is important to repair broken teeth before having their appearance improved because this type of harm can lead to further problems.
