Porcelain Veneers in Warrensburg, Oak Grove, and Windsor, MO
An Instant Makeover for Your Smile
If you hesitate to smile, you won’t have to anymore. Veneers are a beautiful, natural-looking option that can give nearly anyone a perfect smile. In fact, many celebrities entrust the appearance of their teeth to veneers.
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain that are attached to the fronts of your teeth. They can fix multiple smile issues in one simple, non-invasive solution. Learn more about veneers and how they can restore your confidence.
The Veneers Process
The veneers process is fairly simple. First, your dentist will evaluate whether veneers are the best solution for you. He may recommend other cosmetic or restorative solutions if they could improve your smile, and you’ll learn about all your options.
Once you’ve decided on veneers, your dentist will prepare your teeth for veneers. All he’ll have to do is remove a minuscule amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth — this is so the veneers will look natural when they’re placed on your teeth.
He’ll then choose the shade of porcelain we’ll use to make the veneers. We can either match them to your natural tooth color or choose a whiter shade for a brighter appearance. He’ll then send scans of your teeth to the lab to create your veneers.
When your veneers are ready, we’ll let you know so you can come back to the office. Your dentist will securely place the veneers on your teeth, and then you’ll be good to go.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the veneers procedure painful?
No, the veneers procedure isn’t painful. It’s not invasive and we won’t have to do very much to your teeth. All your dentist will do to prepare your teeth for veneers is to remove a very small amount of enamel from the front of the teeth that will have veneers. This is to make sure that the veneers will look perfectly natural when placed on your teeth, instead of sticking out.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers can last for over 10 years if they’re taken care of properly. Your tooth brushing and flossing habits can keep your veneers and our natural teeth in good shape. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss daily.
Also, try to avoid chewing on very hard foods, such as ice. Chewing on ice can not only damage your veneers, but it can also cause harm to your natural teeth.
What if my veneer falls off or is damaged?
If something happens to your veneer, call our office at (660) 747-9117 so we can assist you. We recommend keeping your veneer in a safe place so we can examine it, and we’ll determine if you need replacement veneers. Veneers need to be replaced eventually, so it’s not out of the ordinary for them to fall off if this is necessary.
How do I take care of my veneers?
You’ll take care of your veneers by keeping up with regular oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, flossing daily, using a suitable mouthwash, and visiting our office for regular checkups and cleanings.
It’s also important to be mindful of the food you eat. Hard and crunchy foods can cause damage to your veneers and to your natural teeth. We recommend against chewing on overly hard foods, such as ice, and against using your teeth as tools to open packages.
