Porcelain Veneers in Paducah, KY

Veneers are a quick way to transform your smile without the need for additional cosmetic dentistry procedures. Veneers are thin shells that are made of porcelain and bonded onto the surface of your teeth. The result is a completely natural looking, beautiful smile. Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kelvin White, DMD offers porcelain veneers to patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth but do not wish to undergo orthodontic treatment or additional dental surgeries.

Veneers Placed by a Cosmetic Dentist in Paducah, KY

During your consultation, Dr. White will evaluate your teeth and talk to you about the results you would like to achieve with cosmetic dentistry. Once you have determined that veneers are right for you, a second visit will be necessary to prepare your teeth for the veneers. As they are bonded directly to your teeth, a certain amount of your tooth enamel must be removed to accommodate the thin shells, which are roughly ½ millimeter in thickness. Once your teeth have been reshaped, Dr. White will take an impression from which to design your permanent veneers that are ready in three weeks. A temporary set is placed by our cosmetic dentist in the interim.

Your next visit for this cosmetic dentistry procedure will be the final fitting of your veneers. Dr. White will remove the temporary veneers, and then clean and etch your teeth to enhance the bond to the porcelain shells. Dr. White can make any necessary adjustments to your new veneers at this time, changing color or shape.

Dental cement is administered to your natural teeth, and the veneers are set in place. Our cosmetic dentist uses a dental light to harden or cure the cement, allowing him to control the speed of the process. This ensures the veneers are properly positioned when the bond is complete.
