Porcelain Veneer Expertise for Everett & Burlington WA
Porcelain veneers transform worn or damaged teeth into strikingly beautiful smiles. In just a few visits, a variety of restorative and cosmetic dental problems can be solved using dental veneers. One porcelain veneer can beautifully restore a chipped tooth, or an entire set of porcelain veneers can straighten a crooked smile. By adhering a ceramic porcelain shell to the front of a damaged tooth, our cosmetic dentist in Mt Vernon WA whitens, straightens, and restores natural looking smiles every day.
At our Gentle Dentistry™ office in the Everett and Burlington WA area, the patient comes first. After ensuring that each patient feels at ease, we include them in the decision making process. Many of our patients choose porcelain veneers as a cosmetic dentistry treatment because they are fast, beautiful, and eliminate the need for multiple cosmetic dental procedures.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that exhibit the same natural luster as natural teeth. The porcelain make-up of these dental veneers have the same translucent quality of natural tooth enamel. When adhered to the surface of a tooth, a porcelain veneer can restore everything from chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, or misaligned teeth. However, for more severely damaged teeth, many patients choose dental crowns for enhanced protection.
Who Qualifies for Porcelain Veneers?
The best way to determine how porcelain veneers will fit with your smile is to schedule an initial consultation at Gentle Dentistry in Mt Vernon WA. Our cosmetic dentists enjoy taking individual time with patients to help them fashion the smile that best expresses them. When it comes to placing porcelain veneers, your dentist's expertise and experience make all the difference in longevity and aesthetic appeal.
What are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers offer the gift of a brand new smile in just a few dental visits. In addition to an authentic look, dental veneers can solve a wide range of cosmetic dental problems, including the following:
- Straighten uneven or crooked teeth
- Cover cracks or chips
- Restore white luster to dulled enamel
- Lengthen short teeth
- Reshape uneven or irregular teeth
- Close small tooth gaps
- Protect teeth from further damage
How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
At an initial consultation at Gentle Dentistry, the cosmetic dentist will assess your smile and together you will decide whether porcelain veneers are the best solution for you. The cosmetic dentist will provide additional information on dental veneers and take time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you experience dental fear, you can also learn about our sedation dentistry options.
During your second visit to our office in Mt Vernon (north of Everett), your teeth will be prepared for your dental veneers. Using extreme care, the cosmetic dentist will shave away about a one-half-millimeter layer of tooth enamel to make room for the ultra thin porcelain veneers. Once the dental veneers are adhered to the surface of each tooth, they will replace the old enamel with a whiter, perfectly shaped look. During this appointment, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a lab where each porcelain veneer is custom crafted to create your beautiful smile.
Porcelain Veneer Placement
At your final appointment, we will place and secure your porcelain veneers to the surface of each tooth. During this process we will check the color and shape of each porcelain veneer to ensure a seamless fit into your smile. You will walk away with a bright, beautiful, and lasting smile.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Your porcelain veneers should last for several years when positioned by an expert cosmetic dentist like those at Gentle Dentistry in Mt Vernon, WA. Durability is best maintained with excellent dental hygiene.
