Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers allow Kansas City patients to smile without hesitation. Veneers are the first-class way to significantly upgrade the appeal of teeth, shielding flaws such as chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration and minor misalignment. Statistics have shown that a confident and attractive smile can positively effect one's mood, first impressions, relationships, and even the outcome of job interviews or career advancement opportunities. The benefits of Porcelain Veneers are shown with every smile and go much further than protecting the surface of teeth.

  • Natural Looking veneers are created from durable porcelain that offers light reflecting qualities to resemble beautiful and healthy teeth with a luminous shine.
  • Customization and shade options are unlimited with the ability to match distinct characteristics of surrounding teeth or can create a bright full mouth makeover.
  • Strength is one of the best qualities provided by Porcelain Veneers, which are shell-like shields that replace the enamel (the tooth's outer layer that protects teeth) to prevent tooth decay and damage.
  • Stain Resistant properties in porcelain prevent fading or change of color to the veneers. This is important to know when selecting customization features; brighter shades may require routine Teeth Whitening to the surrounding real teeth.
  • Two quick and easy visits with Dr. Goodman provide patients with an almost instant Smile Makeover and a new look on the first visit.
  • Minor procedure with light etching to teeth during the initial procedure rarely give patients any discomfort or sensitivity.
  • No down or recovery time needed and regular activity can be resumed following visits to Dr. Goodman for Porcelain Veneers.
  • A Long Lasting Permanent Solution; Porcelain Veneers usually do not need replacement for 15-25 years.

Risks with Porcelain Veneers

With Dr. Goodman and his experienced dental staff, Kansas City patients are always in trusted hands with any service. However, not everyone may be a candidate for Porcelain Veneers and it is recommended to know any possible risks that could occur.

  • Cost and Financing for Porcelain Veneers

Dental Insurance Benefits are not usually available from insurance companies for Porcelain Veneers since they are considered an elective cosmetic solution for teeth for the main purpose of improving the appearance and durability of teeth. Porcelain Veneers are masterfully created to give those once flawed a beautiful and confident smile, which to many is considered a priceless investment. Our friendly dental office offers convenient dental financing for Porcelain Veneers and other dental services so that you can have the smile of your dreams on your own affordable terms.

  • Longevity of Porcelain Veneers

As a result of the light etching done to the surface of a tooth to allow proper cementing of the Porcelain Veneer, it is important to understand this treatment is non-reversible and permanent. It is rare that a Porcelain Veneer may become loosened or come off the tooth and need to be re-cemented. Overtime the mouth will age, possibly shift, or the Porcelain Veneers will become worn down from daily habits and usually needs replacement after 15-25 years.

Why Porcelain Veneers are the leading Cosmetic Makeover Solution

Another benefit to Porcelain Veneers is that the minor risks associated are significantly out weighed by the benefits. With proper oral health care of regular brushing, flossing, routine exams and recommendations from Dr. Goodman, any risks are lowered significantly.

"My experience with Dr. John Goodman DDS was outstanding. The entire staff was courteous and very accommodating. Dr. Goodman made me feel very comfortable but also finally gave me hope for having that "beautiful smile" that we (with not so good teeth) always wish for.
