What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
You don't have to live with a smile that is chipped, cracked, or dysfunctional. Porcelain veneers are a wonderful choice for Seattle, WA-area patients who are looking to glean from a number of advantages, such as:
- Minor maintenance is required except for normal oral wellness regimens
- Enhanced oral use and aesthetic that will last for a long time
- Minimal enamel erosion involved for this treatment
- Prevents discoloration or staining
What Can I expect with dental laminate treatment?
When you've decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Kussick, he will take digital or physical impressions of your teeth. Your cosmetic veneers may be produced in our office as you wait or we may send them to a dental lab. No matter the next step, we make all veneers with high-quality porcelain. After preparing your porcelain veneers, Dr. Kussick will take off a little bit of enamel from the front of your teeth. This allows space for the veneers in Seattle and improves the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. When your veneers are secured, Dr. Kussick may make minor adjustments so your veneers fit well.
Since getting veneers typically doesn't require anesthesia, you should be able to get back to your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience some sensitivity to cold and hot foods for a few days, but that should subside naturally. You should clean your veneers just like your natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing.
Porcelain Veneers FAQ
How long will porcelain veneers last?
When you get veneers in Seattle, WA, you can plan on having them between 10 – 15 years before they need to be replaced. It is still important to practice good oral health habits while you have them, including brushing and flossing daily. The more care you put into them, the longer they will last.
Will my teeth get shaved down?
Once you decide that porcelain veneers are what you desire, you will go through the process of having your teeth trimmed down. This will take some enamel off of your teeth so that the bonding agent used for the placement of the veneers is able to adhere. Contact our dentists to learn more about this process and how the veneers stay intact.
Once placed, do the veneers stain?
Dental laminates commonly don't stain. This is because, unlike your natural tooth enamel, it is not porous and doesn't absorb them. If you've noticed a change in shade or that your veneers don't match the color of your remaining teeth (if you have any), let our team in Seattle, WA find a shade that works for you.
Does getting porcelain veneers hurt?
At Dental @888, our dentists do everything possible to ensure that your veneers in Seattle are placed without worry. You'll have a local anesthetic applied to the treatment areas. Our dentists won't move forward until they know you are completely comfortable. Contact our team to learn more about porcelain veneers.
