Almost everyone has one or several things about their smiles that they would like to improve. Perhaps that’s true of you. Whether those changes you’d like to make involve whiter teeth, correcting small gaps, chips or cracks, or something else, dental veneers may be the answer. Dr. Jahyun Koo in Seattle, WA can use dental veneers to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed about.
Dental Veneers Explained
Dental veneers are very thin slices of porcelain or another material that are fixed the fronts of your teeth. You can have veneers created to match the shade of your existing teeth, or have a completely new smile in the exact shade of white you want!
At Jayhun Koo, DDS in Seattle, WA, we offer two types of veneers: porcelain and e.max veneers.
Porcelain veneers are probably the most widely-used veneers, and for good reason. Porcelain comes in a variety of shades and translucency (the way it reflects light). It’s also very durable and reasonably stain-resistant. All of these qualities make it an excellent choice for creating beautiful, likelike dental veneers to enhance any smile
e.max veneers are composed of lithium disilicate, a metal-free ceramic material that produces extremely strong veneers. e.max veneers can capture light in remarkable ways, making them a very good choice for natural-appearing and long-lasting veneers for your smile.
What Veneers Can Do For Your Smile
Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic dentistry solution that can be accomplished in a relatively short length of time. Veneers conceal smile appearance problems such as:
- Chips, cracks, and stains
- Small gaps between teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Too-short teeth
- Teeth that are worn dow
Veneers can also strengthen teeth and help protect them against future damage which makes them an even better investment.
When you choose dental veneers to beautify your smile, you’ll rightly be more confident knowing that your smile is flawless. That’s an advantage in both business settings and in your social life. Studies have shown that people who smile freely and often are viewed as being more trustworthy and likeable.
The Veneer Process
During your initial consultation with Dr. Koo, he’ll discuss your smile goals with you and perform careful examination. He may also take X-rays. Depending on the state of your teeth, he may recommend one or more dental services to correct or prevent future problems before getting your veneers.
Dr. Koo will take careful impressions of your teeth to serve as a guide for our partner laboratory as they create your new veneers. Once they’re ready, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Koo will painlessly remove a tiny amount of enamel from the teeth that will receive the veneers. That keeps those teeths’ thickness the same once the veneers are in place.
Once Dr. Koo bonds your veneers securely to your teeth and makes any final tiny adjustments, your flawless new smile is ready!
