Wouldn't it be nice to have a smile that doesn't stain? That's only one benefit that porcelain veneers provide. Porcelain veneers deliver a strong, durable, and resilient alternative to natural enamel for chipped, cracked, crooked, gapped, discolored, or broken teeth. This non-invasive procedure is performed in-office by your dentist using tooth-colored materials to create a healthy, confidence-boosting appearance. Dr. Melinda Kuhn can complete this procedure in three steps and discuss details during a visit to our Reno, NV office.

Renew Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that your dentist bonds to the surface of tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers can be used on a single tooth or group of teeth, resulting in a minor makeover or a complete smile transformation.

First, some of the tooth enamel is removed for a proper fit. Your dentist then takes an impression of your smile that is sent to a laboratory where your veneers are custom made. They will match the rest of your teeth in size and color unless you choose to brighten your smile with veneers. Finally, your Reno, NV, dentist will cement the porcelain veneers to the teeth. 

Brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing daily, and sleeping with a bite guard are all excellent ways to protect your new veneers. You'll also benefit from frequent professional cleanings and routine checkups.

Talk to your dentist today to determine your candidacy for porcelain veneers. If your teeth require a more semi-permanent cosmetic option, such as teeth whitening, crowns, or bonding, Dr. Kuhn can go over these services with you during the consultation.
