Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

If you have been considering some cosmetic dentistry options, and are just learning about porcelain veneers, you probably have many questions. This is why our team at KC Smile in Overland Park, KS offers the following porcelain veneers FAQs and answers.

What Exactly Are Porcelain Veneers?

As your chosen dentist in Overland Park, we make a long list of cosmetic treatments available. Dental veneers are one that can actually address a long list of issues or concerns. They are durable and thin shells of porcelain that are custom made for your dental needs and then bonded to your teeth to create a permanent solution.

Are They Painful?

This is one of the more important porcelain veneers FAQs because there is a bit of misunderstanding and misinformation about veneers around. They are not at all painful to have placed and require only minimal prep work to be done to the teeth in order to make them a success. The bonding process causes no discomfort at all, and most patients grow used to their new veneers in just a few days, but without any pain or discomfort.

How Are They Done?

Again, this is another of the most relevant porcelain veneers FAQs because many people have heard them called “instant smile makeovers”. They are not instant, but close to it as they require only two visits to complete. Our porcelain veneers specialist begins by ensuring your teeth and gums are in optimal health. Once we are sure you do not need any fillings or other restorative treatments, the specialist prepares your teeth for veneers, takes special molds and places temporary veneers. A lab makes your custom veneers and we than bond them to your teeth in our office. You can begin using them as soon as they are bonded, and leave our office with a cosmetically improved smile.
