Easily correct your teeth’s imperfections and gain confidence with Dental Veneers from our Issaquah dental experts!
It can make you feel hesitant to smile when you have a minor cosmetic problem such as a chipped, cracked, stained, or misshapen tooth. Fortunately, these issues are easy for Dr. Vanama to fix with dental veneers. A veneer is an extremely thin piece of ceramic that adheres to the front of your tooth to disguise an imperfection. This is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry procedures at Discovery Dental in Issaquah. Once your new veneer is in place, you will have renewed self-confidence and won’t be able to hold back your smile.
The Process of Receiving Dental Veneers
Veneers are typically made from porcelain so they match the shading of your teeth as closely as possible. During your first appointment, Dr. Vanama takes an impression of the tooth receiving the veneer. She then sends the mold to our dental laboratory. Our technicians follow the specifications to create a customized tooth shell for you. It takes approximately two to three weeks for your dentist in Issaquah to receive your new veneer back from our dental laboratory. However, she can fit you with a temporary restoration in the meantime.
Before Dr. Vanama can place your new veneer, she may need to remove up to one-eighth of a millimeter of enamel from your tooth. This is to ensure that the veneer fits properly and the treated tooth doesn’t stick out further than the rest of your teeth. Our office will contact you for a final fitting after Dr. Vanama receives your veneer back from the lab.
After checking the color and shape of your new veneer, the next step is for Dr. Vanama to place a bonding agent to the front of your tooth. She then carefully places the veneer on top of it and uses a curing light so it hardens in place. The process is fast and simple, and you leave our office with a beautiful new smile.
Care and Longevity of Dental Veneers
It is important to follow a good oral hygiene routine while also avoiding habits that could cause your new veneer to become loose. As long as you do this, your veneer should last up to 10 years before you need to replace it. If you notice any problems with it after placement, just contact us to schedule an appointment for repair. This should only take a few minutes for minor issues.
