Your Porcelain Veneers Dentist In Seattle
What are Dental Veneers?
Teeth veneers are one of the most popular and beautiful ways to improve your smile. They create an entirely new “face” for your teeth while also strengthening them. The effect of a well-done veneer is subtle, yet immediate: People who’ve known you for years will stare at you and ask, “What’s different about you? You look fantastic!” Whether you want to tell them the secret is up to you.
You have choices with your dental veneers. Seattle cosmetic dentist, Dr. Brian McKay, and his team at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry will work with you to help determine which type is best for you.
Custom-fit porcelain veneers (or laminate veneers) are thin, durable structures designed to mimic the tooth’s natural structure. Bonded to the front surface of your teeth, they are capable of biting into anything your normal teeth would.
Porcelain veneers improve the position and shape of your teeth, providing a uniformity that may have been lost over the years due to chipping, grinding, bad positioning or other factors. They can even be shaped to fill in midline spaces (or a “gap tooth”). And if your teeth have been stained by years of smoking, coffee drinking or simple genetics, porcelain veneers can quickly restore that brilliance.
Dr. Brian McKay is an expert at fitting porcelain veneers. When you choose porcelain veneers, Dr. McKay will meet with you to discuss your smile goals and create a personalized treatment plan. Before he places your tooth veneers, Dr. McKay will prepare your teeth to create a strong bond between the surface of your tooth and the veneer itself.
