Smile enhancement using high-quality, affordable porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular and highly desirable cosmetic dental procedures available today. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain designed to cover your teeth’ front surface. Dr. Scott A. Babin and his team in Edmonds and Renton, Washington, use veneers for imperfections that may be present in the smile. They are used for improving the appearance of your smile by correcting various aesthetic concerns, including some of the following:
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Discoloration or staining of teeth
- Misshapen or uneven teeth
Dental veneers are an extremely effective way to enhance your smile and improve your overall appearance. In fact, porcelain veneers can even be used to change the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. If you are considering porcelain veneers, learn how they work and what the procedure entails.
How do dental veneers work?
Porcelain dental veneers are bonded by the dentist to the front surface of your natural teeth using a strong adhesive with minimal prep design. Once in place, porcelain veneers will completely cover up any flaws or imperfections on your teeth. Porcelain veneers are created from high-quality materials designed to resist staining and discoloration. This means that your porcelain veneers will remain white and bright for many years.
What is the process/procedure for placing porcelain veneers?
The first step in obtaining porcelain veneers is to request a consultation appointment to talk with your dentist. During this consultation, your dentist will assess your smile and determine if porcelain veneers are the best option for you. If you decide to continue with dental veneers, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the procedure. That involves removing a tiny amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth. Once the teeth are properly prepared, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory, where a final veneer is created and bonded into place during a later appointment. Patients can expect their customized veneers to last ten years or longer with proper care!
