Are you living with an unattractive smile? Do you hide your mouth when speaking or taking pictures because of your imperfect teeth? You can revitalize your smile with porcelain veneers in Bellingham. At Moreno & Young Dental, we can give you the results you want using a minimally invasive treatment.
Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their color, shape, size, and proportion. We customize them to meet your exact needs to correct several issues at once.
Although there are veneers made from other materials, porcelain is now the preferred choice. It closely mimics your enamel to create natural-looking results. Not to mention, porcelain is also stain-resistant, so your new smile stays bright.
Porcelain also allows the veneers to be designed thinner to keep more of your tooth’s structure intact during the bonding process. This makes the treatment less invasive. In fact, many patients do not even need an anesthetic.
Veneers are very versatile to improve several concerns, like dark tooth discoloration. You can pick the ideal shade to get a brilliantly white smile. Veneers are often recommended for those who have chipped, cracked, abnormally shaped, or shorter than average teeth. They can also be used as an alternative to traditional braces by closing gaps and hiding minor alignment problems.
You need a consultation with your dentist in Bellingham to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure. After we create an individualized treatment plan, you are scheduled for the first phase of your transformation process.
Your teeth are cleaned before their surfaces are etched. This allows the veneers to create a secure bond with your teeth. Digital impressions of your mouth are taken to design your new smile. The information is sent to a dental lab where your veneers are crafted to meet your exact needs. This can take a couple of weeks, so we will attach temporary ones in the meantime. After your permanent veneers are ready, you return to our office to have them bonded in place.
Veneers provide a long-term solution to invest in your confidence. They last an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced; however, it is not uncommon for them to last longer. You can promote their longevity by:
Although veneers are durable, they can break. If one becomes damaged, we can quickly restore your radiant smile.
If you do not love your teeth, it is time to see if porcelain veneers are right for you. We will transform your smile in as little as 2 appointments. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation.
