Veneers Benefits

veneer benefitsShoreline, Edmonds, and Seattle, WA

Smile enhancement was once considered a luxury that was for the rich and famous, but that perspective has changed, especially in recent years. Cosmetic dentistry continues to soar in popularity because more people are realizing the value of a pleasing smile. Studies have shown that an attractive smile can be a great asset personally, socially, and professionally. We are living in an era that is focused on facial beauty, and the smile is the main attraction.

Porcelain veneers can give patients a smile makeover in just two appointments after the initial consultation. They are one of the most aesthetic means possible for creating a beautiful smile. Porcelain has the glassy translucence and light refraction of natural tooth enamel. It is strong, durable, chemical resistant, stain resistant, biocompatible, and can be tinted, making it the perfect option for cosmetic restorations.

Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells sculpted to fit the front surface of each tooth precisely. When in the hands of a truly artistic cosmetic dentist they create spectacular results. These restorations are extremely versatile, and can be used to correct a number of cosmetic concerns. They are a terrific option for restoring teeth that have been chipped or worn down. They can cover teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening, such as those with tetracycline stains. They can be used to make the teeth appear longer, and are great for closing the gaps between teeth. Within reason, they can even be used to change cosmetic misalignment.

During the consultation, the doctor will perform a comprehensive oral exam and discuss the options for addressing your cosmetic concerns. Drs. Hoag and Dotsch always take a consultative approach to any dental treatment, they may recommend a specific option, but they listen and hear what their patients have to say, answer all questions they have, and respect their wishes. The doctors and their talented dental team form a close partnership with their patients, with everyone working together towards a common goal. That goal is optimal oral and overall health for each patient, as well as aesthetic delight.

If porcelain veneers are the chosen treatment, the smile makeover is completed in just two visits. On the first visit, the color is chosen, the teeth are prepared for veneer placement, and impressions are taken. During the second visit, the veneers are tried, adjusted, and permanently bonded into place. The doctor will polish the veneers to a lustrous glow, and the patient leaves the office with a brand new smile.
