Dental veneers used to achieve a beautiful smile


Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.

Dental veneers are a good option for you if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile. Dr. Steve Dugan of Dugan Family Dentistry PA in Wichita, Kansas, believes that veneers can rejuvenate the smile, effectively covering areas where imperfections have developed. Smile restoration with composite and porcelain veneers is an affordable choice for many patients who visit our practice.

What are dental veneers?

Dr. Dugan describes veneers as thin, custom-made shells bonded to the front of your teeth. They can improve the color, shape, and size of your teeth. They offer adequate coverage while looking completely natural, matched to the remaining teeth for seamless integration.

Are veneers permanent?

Veneers are an irreversible procedure, so it’s essential to be sure that you’re ready to commit before getting them. Be sure to talk to Dr. Dugan about your options and what he recommends for you. That allows him to make suitable recommendations for your unique dental needs.

What types of veneers are available?

There are two varieties of dental cosmetic veneers available, including porcelain and composite. Porcelain veneers are fabricated from a thin layer of porcelain. Composite veneers are created from composite resin material. Porcelain veneers are more durable than composite veneers and are stain-resistant. They also provide a more natural look. However, they’re also more expensive. Composite veneers are typically less costly than porcelain ones and can be done in one visit. However, they’re not as durable and may not last as long. They also may not look as natural as porcelain veneers. Choosing the one best for you starts with a consultation appointment with our team!
