Porcelain Veneers

Transform Your Smile with Beautiful Porcelain Veneers

As an adult, if your teeth aren’t as attractive as you would like, it can make you self-conscious about smiling, being in family photos and leave you hiding behind your hands. If you don’t want to be an adult in braces or your tooth issues can’t be corrected by orthodontia, you may want to consider veneers to give you a “Hollywood” smile.

Dr. Judy can transform your smile with high quality porcelain veneers. Call (206)232-5866 to schedule a consultation today on getting the smile you want.  Dr. Judy offers both prepless and prepped veneers.

What Conditions Do Veneers Correct?

While orthodontics can move your teeth around, it takes time and doesn’t correct the shape of your individual teeth and other problems that veneers can instantly correct.

If you have any of the following issues, veneers can help:

  • Teeth that are misshapen or crooked
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Teeth with worth areas
  • Teeth that are stained and whitening won’t correct
  • Gaps between teeth

How Are Veneers Made?

Veneers are usually made of porcelain or composite resin and are shaped to fit your teeth exactly. They are customized to bond over your existing teeth like a tight glove held in place permanently by a permanent adhesive.

Porcelain veneers last much longer than composite, although they cost more. By comparison, porcelain veneers last 10-15 years and run $1300 per tooth while composite veneers last half as long and cost $650-$700 per tooth.

Benefits of Veneers

When you think veneers, you may picture the oversized Chiclets caps of a 1970s game show host. But veneer technology has come a long way and today’s veneers are very authentic looking and should not be discernible from your natural teeth.

Here are some of the other benefits of opting for veneers:

  • Can rapidly transform your smile
  • Are as strong or stronger than your natural teeth
  • Are highly stain resistant (coffee, wine and cigarettes won’t discolor them)
  • Can improve your self-confidence
  • Can be applied to just those teeth you want to alter

How Difficult Is It to Maintain Veneers?

Veneers are as easy to take care of as your natural teeth. Routine flossing and brushing with a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste are all you need for daily care.

If you grind or clench your teeth, Dr. Judy may evaluate you with a bite guard to protect your veneers while you sleep. You still need bi-annual professional cleanings – porcelain veneers need to be polished with a special paste and inspected for any potential issues. Otherwise, you treat veneers as you would your other teeth.
