In the pursuit of a perfect smile, orthodontic treatments like braces or clear aligners have long been the go-to solutions. However, for those seeking a faster route to a flawless smile, porcelain veneers present an exciting alternative. Dubbed as ‘instant orthodontics’, porcelain veneers can dramatically transform your smile in just a couple of visits to Capstone Dentistry in Shawnee. Let’s explore how porcelain veneers can be an ideal solution for qualifying patients.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They are crafted from high-quality porcelain, ensuring a natural and durable finish. Veneers are renowned for their ability to address various dental imperfections such as discoloration, chips, gaps, and even misalignment.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Serve as Instant Orthodontics?

Here are some valued ways that veneers may be able to replace orthodontic treatment for qualifying patients:


Traditional orthodontic treatments can take months or even years to achieve desired results. In contrast, porcelain veneers can be completed in just two or three visits, offering a rapid transformation of your smile.

Cosmetic Correction

While they don’t alter the actual position of your teeth, porcelain veneers can effectively mask minor misalignments, gaps, and irregular tooth shapes. For patients with these concerns, veneers provide an aesthetic correction that gives the appearance of a perfectly aligned smile.

Minimal Invasiveness

Porcelain veneers require minimal tooth preparation compared to other dental procedures. This feature makes them a less invasive option for achieving a cosmetically pleasing smile.

Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

While porcelain veneers offer numerous benefits, they’re not suitable for everyone. Ideal candidates for veneers typically have:

  • Overall good oral health.
  • Cosmetic concerns (such as gaps or minor misalignment) on front teeth
  • Sufficient enamel, as a small amount needs to be removed to place the veneers.
  • A commitment to good oral hygiene post-procedure.

The Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers at Capstone Dentistry

  1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation at Capstone Dentistry, where we assess your oral health and discuss your aesthetic goals.
  2. Custom Design: We take impressions of your teeth to create custom veneers that fit perfectly and match your desired look.
  3. Preparation: A small amount of enamel is removed from the front of your teeth to accommodate the veneers.
  4. Fitting: Once your veneers are ready, they are carefully bonded to your teeth, instantly transforming your smile.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Veneers

To ensure the longevity of your veneers, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing. Although veneers are stain-resistant, it’s advisable to limit exposure to stain-causing substances like coffee or red wine. Regular check-ups at Capstone Dentistry are also essential to monitor the condition of your veneers.
