Dental veneers are an exceptional solution to a number of cosmetic dental issues. Dental veneers are thin, custom-sculptured shells made of porcelain or composite that are attached to the front surface of teeth to mask cosmetic issues. They can be used to address the color and shape of crooked, chipped, discolored, or unevenly spaced teeth. The office of Smile Matters Inc. offers traditional veneers made of composite or porcelain, branded Empress and EMAX veneers, as well as the ultra-thin Lumineers and no-prep veneers.
Veneers can address the color, shape, size and spacing in your teeth and can enhance the appearance of your front teeth to give you a beautiful, even looking smile.
To place traditional veneers, a small portion of the enamel of the tooth needs to be removed. This is done to allow the veneer thickness to fit properly. This procedure is irreversible. Your veneer is made using an impression of your tooth and is prepared in a dental lab. A temporary veneer is placed on your tooth in the meantime. Once ready, your permanent veneer is bonded to the front surface of your tooth and the tooth is polished to make it look natural.
If cared for properly, veneers can last for many years. To learn more about how these amazing restorations can improve your smile, please contact our office for a consultation. You can reach us at (206) 201-0656. Our practice is located at 509 Olive Way, Suite 1033, Seattle, WA 98101.
