Dental Veneers are innovative devices that will help improve the way your teeth look and feel, helping you realize a flawless and uniform smile. They can conceal various imperfections of your smile and modify the appearance of discolored, stained, or misshapen front teeth. At Marine Hills Dentistry in Federal Way, Washington, we provide dental veneers to help you smile with more confidence.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin and transparent layers of porcelain, ceramic, or composite material that are permanently fixed onto the front surface of your teeth. This painless procedure can be performed with minimal preparation of your tooth structure and is often called instant orthodontics.
Veneers can make your teeth look more attractive, improve their shape and color, and improve tooth alignment. They are an excellent option for front teeth, especially when you prefer not to undergo orthodontic treatment.
How Can Dental Veneers Help?
Dental veneers are suitable devices for teeth that:
- Are stained or discolored
- Have unattractive gaps between them
- Are misshaped, broken, chipped, or crooked
What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers offer several advantages, especially when bonded to your front teeth. Some benefits of the veneer treatment include:
- Relatively painless and straightforward procedure
- Does not require more than two visits to our dental office
- A minimal amount of enamel structure is removed
- Gives a healthy and natural appearance
The Procedure for Placing Veneers
The placement of dental veneers is a simple procedure. It entails as little as two steps:
Preparation of the Tooth
After the shade of the veneer has been decided, Dr. Dennis Hahn will prepare the affected tooth. A minor portion of the enamel structure measuring about 0.3mm to 0.5mm is removed from the tooth's front surface to make room for the new veneer. An impression of the prepared tooth is then captured and sent to a dental lab to fabricate your customized veneer restoration. We will make sure to match your veneers with the shade of your existing teeth.
After the preparation and cleaning of your tooth, the veneer is secured to the tooth with the help of dental adhesives that are hardened with a special curing light. The veneers will blend in seamlessly with your smile. With proper care and maintenance, your veneers can last for ten years or more.
