Benefits of Veneers

Dental veneers are an increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because they offer many unique benefits, including: 

Versatility

Many of our Kansas City patients seek veneers to deliver dramatic cosmetic results. Dental veneers are unique due to their ability to address a wide range of aesthetic issues. While other procedures like teeth whitening and dental bonding can only address specific blemishes, porcelain veneers can completely change the size and shape of your teeth.

Improved Oral Health

One lesser-known benefit of porcelain veneers is their ability to correct mildly crowded or misaligned teeth. For the right patient, Dr. Matthew Turner can use dental veneers to eliminate minor crowding issues. Not only will your teeth look more attractive, but each individual tooth will be easier to clean and maintain.

Elevated Self-Confidence

An attractive smile conveys youth, confidence, and good health. If you are seeking new possibilities in your personal and professional life, porcelain veneers can improve how others perceive you. Many patients who undergo this treatment at our Blue Springs office find that it dramatically boosts their self-esteem.

See How Veneers Work

Veneers are super thin porcelain shells that attach to the surfaces of teeth, masking imperfections.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?

For most Kansas City patients, receiving veneers usually requires two appointments at our office in Blue Springs, MO. During these appointments, here is what you can expect:

Consultation

Imaging & Impressions

By working with our dentist and his team, you will experience the benefits of our advanced dental technology. Our office utilizes the iTero Element 2 Intraoral Scanner and 3D printer technology, so you won’t have to gag on goopy impression materials. Our radiation-free scanning technology produces a perfect digital model of your bite in minutes. We use this model to plan your treatment.

Preparing the Teeth

To prepare a tooth for veneer placement, we must remove a thin layer of enamel. This allows the veneer to lie flush alongside the adjacent teeth. Our cosmetic dentist will apply local anesthesia with our WAND technology, and sedation may also be used to ensure that you are comfortable throughout this procedure. After Dr. Turner removes the enamel, we will use the iTero Element 2 scanner to create a digital model of your altered bite

Fabricating the Restorations 

The information from our scanner is uploaded to the “Cloud,” where it is then transmitted instantly to our dental laboratory. Highly trained technicians use the model of your bite to create your custom veneers. This can take a few weeks. We may be able to provide a temporary prosthetic to wear while you wait. 

Placing the Permanent Veneers

When the dental veneers are ready, you will return to our Blue Springs office so Dr. Turner can attach them. He will make necessary adjustments to ensure that the veneers match the shade of your teeth and fit perfectly. Once you and the doctor are completely satisfied, he will secure the veneers to the treated teeth with strong dental cement. There is no recovery time associated with this treatment.

Our Dentist Can Help You Combat Potential Side Effects

In the days following your treatment, you may experience a few minor and perfectly normal side effects that will subside on their own. For example, you may notice a sensitivity to hot and cold food or drinks. Avoiding these items is one way to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Additionally, because the shells slightly alter the size of your teeth, you may notice that your bite feels a bit “off” for a few days, but don't worry. Your mouth will naturally adjust.

If you have concerns about side effects at any point during the treatment, simply let our dentist know and he will gladly provide advice and tips as needed. By working with our experienced dental team, you greatly lower your risk of side effects following treatment.

How Can I Enjoy My Veneers for 10 Years or Longer?

Your wafer-thin shells will be fabricated from a durable material like porcelain, but the shells are not indestructible. To keep them looking and feeling great for as long as possible, you should: 

Refrain from Opening Items with Your Teeth

Porcelain and other materials used in veneers have a similar density and strength as enamel. In other words, if you wouldn’t bite it with your natural teeth, don’t bite it with your new attachments. You should never use your dental veneers to tear or pry open objects or packages. 

Maintain Good Dental Health

The state of your veneers will depend on how healthy the underlying teeth and gums are. We recommend that all of our patients brush at least twice a day and floss regularly. Regular exams and cleanings can allow Dr. Turner to ensure that your veneers remain firmly attached. 

How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost? 

Remember, porcelain veneers are not a cost. They are an investment in yourself!

We want every patient to enjoy the benefits of dental veneers, no matter their budget. For this reason, we offer flexible financing through CareCredit®. To get an accurate quote, schedule a consultation at our dental office today.
