A veneer is a thin covering that bonds to the natural tooth. Veneers can be a much more conservative approach to changing the appearance of your teeth. In some cases, veneers can be used as an alternative to braces, providing a fast and minimally invasive option.
Veneers are an ideal solution for chipped, uneven, or discolored teeth. They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve your overall appearance, and solve common problems such as worn down, misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth. They can also be used to help fill in teeth with gaps.
Dr. Watkins maintains privileges at William Newton Memorial Hospital in Winfield, Kansas. This allows certain dental cases to be completed under general anesthesia. Some examples of cases that benefit from this treatment option include children that need several restorations completed at once, and fearful patients in need of wisdom teeth extractions.
