If you want a smile makeover to address your multiple cosmetic concerns, then we could offer one with a single procedure in some cases! With porcelain veneers, we instantly correct the shape and color of your teeth in just two visits. In today’s blog, your Seattle, WA, dentist talks about improving smiles with porcelain veneers.
The Benefits of Porcelain Restorations
Porcelain veneers are a thin restoration that we use to address cosmetic concerns. Since they only require the removal of a very thin layer of outer enamel, they preserve more of your natural tooth structure when compared to alternatives like dental crowns. The porcelain material we craft them from is also very durable and able to handle daily bite forces with ease. The material is also translucent like tooth enamel and can be color matched to blend with the rest of your smile seamlessly. Place only takes two visits, and you can makeover your smile in many cases. We could also combine them with other treatments, like teeth whitening and dental bonding/contouring too.
The Cosmetic Improvements Offered
When placed, these instantly change the shape and color of your teeth. Our team can use them to mask permanent teeth stains to brighten your smile, or to fill embarrassing gaps between your teeth. Placement can correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter-looking smile without the need for lengthy treatment with braces or aligners. Veneers can reshape malformed teeth and repair minor cracks or chips too, or even lengthen worn down tooth structure as well.
Creating and Placing Them
Each one we make is custom-made for your smile to ensure a proper fit and a balanced bite, as well as a natural appearance that inspires confidence when you smile. To get started, we will numb the tooth receiving one and then remove a thin layer of outer enamel. Next, we take detailed digital images to create a 3D impression, one we can use in a lab setting to design and craft your custom restoration. Our team then checks the fit and makes any necessary adjustments before we attach them with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, they can last for years to come, so you can enjoy your best-looking smile.
