Four dental problems that can be addressed with porcelain veneers in Wichita, KS
Porcelain dental veneers have been used for many years to help patients achieve better smiles. Veneers are very fine porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front of the natural teeth to cover imperfections. They can be used for a variety of dental conditions, including:
- Chipped, fractured, or pitted teeth – If your teeth are fractured, it's important to have them fixed. Fractures in teeth can break down the enamel, causing the teeth to become weak. Over time, the weakness can grow and the tooth can become further damaged. It can also lead to sensitivity for the patient. Veneers can cover the cracks and provide much needed strength to the tooth.
- Crooked or misaligned teeth – Many patients think that braces or orthodontic treatment is the only way to fix misaligned teeth. However, teeth that are only a little bit out of place, creating a purely cosmetic concern, can be enhanced with veneers. Veneers can cover the imperfection and give the patient the appearance of a straight and perfectly aligned smile.
- Dark or stained teeth – Teeth whitening is a popular choice for dental patients with teeth that have been stained by coffee or dark beverages. However, teeth whitening treatments don't work for all patients and all situations. For teeth that have stubborn stains or for patients who aren't going to give up the habits that caused the teeth staining in the first place, veneers are a great alternative. Porcelain veneers not only mimic the appearance of natural teeth with the same light reflecting qualities, they resist staining better. Over time, a white smile stays whiter longer.
- Teeth that have a variety of minor problems – Veneers are a great way to cover a number of dental issues. Yet, maybe the best reason to consider veneers is that they can be used to cover several issues with only one treatment. Instead of undergoing whitening, bonding, and braces, patients can simply improve their smile with one simple procedure.
