Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic solution. Patients in Edmond and the surrounding areas can visit Dr. Kevin Rykard, DDS to learn about the ways in which dental veneers can improve their smiles. Using high-quality materials and a quality dental lab, Dr. Kevin Rykard and his team are committed to ensuring patients enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile with cosmetic solutions such as veneers.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to match patients’ existing teeth. They are fabricated by an outside laboratory to specifications given by Dr. Kevin Rykard, DDS to ensure they blend in seamlessly with the existing teeth. These shells are bonded over the natural teeth to disguise imperfections such as broken, misaligned, permanently stained, or unusually shaped teeth. Veneers can also be used to cover problems such as spaces between the teeth to avoid the need for orthodontic treatments.
Dr. Kevin Rykard, DDS starts the process with a consultation. This may include x-rays and an examination. Several options may be discussed, including dental bonding. Once the team has decided veneers are the appropriate solution, preparation begins. This may require some of the enamel of the teeth be removed. Impressions are made and sent to our trusted laboratory with instructions on the color and shape of the veneers. Patients return a week or two later for the bonding of the final restorations, and they leave the dental office with a beautiful smile!
