Improve Your Smile’s Look
If you’re not satisfied with the way your smile looks, you’re not alone. With plenty of cosmetic dental options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to find which option is best for you. What if we told you we can change your smile’s appearance with just one cosmetic treatment?
In fact, our Everett cosmetic dentist, Dr. Webley proudly provides dental veneers to improve your smile’s appearance. With veneers, our dental team at Just Smile Dental can conceal flaws in your smile’s appearance, producing beautiful yet natural-looking results. Discover how you can benefit from this cosmetic makeover below.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that fit over the front of your tooth to change its appearance. One of the best things about dental veneers is that if you’re dealing with more than one problem, veneers offer a single solution. No need to undergo multiple treatments. Since veneers simply cover up your teeth, they can conceal multiple issues.
The material used for dental veneers imitates natural tooth enamel, and we can shape your veneers to meet your exact standards for size, shape, and color. We know that your smile’s uniqueness is essential; no one wants to feel as though they have a cookie-cutter look. There’s no need to worry, though — veneers are completely customizable. We will prepare your teeth for the veneers, making room so that they will blend in, look natural, and function comfortably.
Types of Dental Veneers
Traditional veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are:
- Strong and durable
When you opt for porcelain veneers, your dentist will determine if you require a small amount of enamel to be removed prior to veneer placement. From there, Dr. Webley will take impressions and send them to a dental laboratory to have your veneers crafted and customized. Once your veneers are ready, they’ll be fitted for accuracy, cleaned, and bonded to your teeth.
If Dr. Webley finds that you don’t require enamel removal, he’ll provide you with no-prep veneers. The process for installing no-prep veneers is similar to traditional veneers, except no enamel will be removed.
Our Everett dental practice also offers componeers. These veneers are crafted from composite resin, but unlike cosmetic dental bonding, componeers last longer. Compared with porcelain veneers, componeers are less expensive, providing an option for those with budgetary concerns. We hope that anyone and everyone who comes to our office will be able to find a cosmetic dentistry option that will work for them.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Veneers are known for immediate smile transformations and can be used for those who are suffering from dental issues such as:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Uneven or undersized teeth
- Spaces or gaps between teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth lacking enamel
Frequently Asked Questions
Porcelain veneers can last between seven to 15 years with proper care and maintenance. Componeers can last between three and eight years before needing replacement. To ensure you can get the most out of your dental veneers, your dentist recommended doing the following:
- Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush twice a day
- Gently floss your teeth daily (preferably before bed)
- Rinse in between meals
- Visit your dentist twice a year for professional cleanings and checkups
There are three kinds of toothpaste recommended for your veneers:
- Gel toothpaste is gentle and non-abrasive. They don’t contain harsh abrasive ingredients such as hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.
- Fluoride toothpaste is highly recommended. While veneers are immune to disease, your natural teeth aren’t. Fluoride toothpaste keeps your teeth strong and healthy, prolonging the lifespan of your veneers.
- Non-whitening toothpaste will help keep your restoration shining and free from scratches, staining agents, food particles, and debris. Whitening toothpaste has harsh ingredients, which can damage your veneers and make them lose their shine.
