Rediscover your self-confidence with a beautiful smile crafted by veneers.

Do you feel like your smile isn’t as perfect as you would like it to be? Do certain imperfections such as small chips in your teeth, discolorations and gaps make you feel embarrassed to smile? If you said “yes” then you are in luck. Our Reno, NV, cosmetic dentist Dr. Melinda Kuhn can help you create the ideal smile with help from dental veneers.

What are dental veneers?

Chances are good that if you’ve ever coveted a Hollywood actor’s smile then you’ve been complimenting their dental veneers. Veneers are simple porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to completely transform and improve the color, shape and alignment of your smile. Veneers can cover common dental blemishes and give you a smile that looks more attractive.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

As you might imagine, this simple cosmetic solution can provide a lot of amazing benefits for its wearers. Here are some benefits you’ll enjoy with dental veneers:

It’s a minimally invasive procedure

If you want a simple way to enhance your appearance without turning to time-consuming or aggressive treatments then dental veneers might be the right choice. It only takes about 2-3 visits to get your new and improved smile and tooth preparation is minimal. Since this treatment doesn’t require extensive tooth prep, anesthesia is not typically required.

You’ll have a beautiful smile for life

Since we do have to shave off a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth, once this happens your veneers are meant for life. Veneers can last up to 10 years or longer, with the proper care. Plus, our Reno, NV, dentist will just replace your old veneers with beautiful new ones once it’s time. Imagine having a perfect smile for the rest of your life.

Achieve a straighter smile

Some patients want to cover gaps between teeth, minor crowding, or crooked teeth but don’t love the idea of wearing braces. Fortunately, if you are only dealing with small misalignments in your smile, you may be able to turn to veneers to hide these issues and to give you a straighter smile without even having to wear braces.

Hide imperfections

Another amazing benefit is that dental veneers can hide many common dental imperfections. Do you have unsightly internal stains caused by taking antibiotics? Did a sports injury leave your front tooth slightly chipped? Does your canine stick out like a sore thumb? These are all issues that veneers can address. These custom-made porcelain shells can easily alter the shape, size, length and color of one or more teeth.
