Cosmetic Dentistry and Veneers
When you smile, people notice. People gravitate towards bright smiles and sparkling eyes. For some of us, a big toothy grin is the last thing you want to show. Some people even have entire photo albums with the same closed-mouth smile. People hide their teeth for common reasons including missing teeth, stained or discolored enamel, or uneven alignment. Here in Medina, OH, our dental team understands the embarrassment of not having the smile you deserve.
Many of our patients come to us for cosmetic dentistry. If general dentistry is the science of maintaining a healthy smile, then cosmetic dentistry is the art of making it beautiful.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the process of creating an aesthetically pleasing smile. Some patients desire brighter, whiter teeth; while others have uneven gaps in their teeth. Because of the custom nature of each patient’s needs, Dr. Karunagaran will tailor a natural-looking smile that fits your style. There is no limit to the smile makeovers that cosmetic dentistry can design.

Find out More about Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that bond to the front of your tooth. They can fix common issues like broken or cracked teeth, stained or discolored enamel, and uneven gaps between teeth. During your initial consultation with Dr. Karunagaran, an impression of your teeth will be made to start the process of fabricating a custom veneer for you.
Once your impression has is fabricated your tooth will be prepped for bonding. Generally, this involves a tiny amount of tooth enamel removal and temporary veneers adhered. During your next appointment, your temporary veneers will be replaced by permanent porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are bonded to your tooth, so you don’t have to worry about them shifting out of place. They are shaded to match your existing teeth, and no one, not even you, will be able to tell the difference!
