Porcelain dental veneers from Smiles Dental can significantly improve the look of your pearly whites. Dental veneers are thin layers or shells made from tooth-colored materials — porcelain at our office — that are custom-designed to fit over the front surface of a tooth.
A veneer is designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth that is discolored or damaged. Veneers aren’t meant to only restore the appearance of an imperfect tooth; in some cases, dental veneers help to provide some protection for a tooth that’s vulnerable to damage.
Placing dental veneers is generally an irreversible process, because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth in order to accommodate the shell, without making the tooth too bulky.
Porcelain veneers are used to correct slightly crooked teeth; to restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn, or fractured; to close large spaces between teeth; to improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth; or to whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored.
So, if you’d like to enhance the appearance of your smile, we invite you to call our office at 360.339.7499 and set up an appointment to discuss how porcelain dental veneers could benefit you. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
