We only have one chance to make a great first impression in both our professional and personal lives and having a great smile can go a long way to giving the very best first impression that you possibly can. That’s why so many people believe that putting money into having the perfect smile is the best investment. Our Reno cosmetic dentist Dr. Melinda Kuhn offers dental veneers so that patients can finally get that picture-perfect smile.

Do you hate that gap between your front teeth? Do you wish that you didn’t have such noticeable chips and cracks in your teeth? Is one tooth worn down or misshapen? If you said yes to any of these questions then dental veneers could help your smile. These thin porcelain or composite resin shells are adhered to the front of your teeth to hide these common imperfections so that the world around you only notices a whiter, healthy smile.

Veneers are a great option for those looking to hide dental flaws such as:

  • Discolorations

  • Chips and cracks

  • Malformed or misshapen teeth

  • Uneven or worn teeth (often from teeth grinding)

  • Spaces between teeth

  • Minor crowding

  • Teeth that are too small

  There are so many ways dental veneers can improve the appearance of your teeth. Before you get veneers, there are some facts that you should know about this treatment:

  • If you are getting traditional dental veneers, our Reno dentist will need to remove about 0.5 millimeters of enamel from your teeth prior to getting veneers. This reduces the thickness of your natural teeth so that when the veneers are applied your smile doesn’t look bulky. Because enamel can’t grow back, once this tooth preparation has occurred it is not reversible.

  • In many cases removing this small amount of enamel can be performed painlessly without the need for anesthesia. Of course, those who have dental anxieties surrounding procedures or those who have tooth sensitivity may decide to get anesthesia or sedation.

  • It takes about one week to get your specially designed dental veneers. Veneers are then bonded to your teeth using a special resin, which is sandwiched between the veneers and the front of your teeth. Then a light is used to harden the resin and permanently adhere the veneers.

 Are you ready to take the plunge and get dental veneers in Reno, NV? We are so happy to hear it. Call our dental office today and schedule an appointment with our cosmetic expert Dr. Kuhn, who is ready to give you the smile you want.
