Issaquah Dental Veneers
Repair broken or damaged teeth with veneers in Issaquah Highlands.
Dr. Madurhi Vanama, at Discovery Dental, performs the application of veneers for the restoration of a patient’s cracked or otherwise damaged teeth. Dental veneers are naturally-colored, extraordinarily thin customized coverings intended to disguise the visible surface of your teeth for aesthetic purposes.
Veneers is a procedure provided here at Issaquah Highlands which results in a well-aligned, brilliantly white smile. The veneers correct such maladies as: discolored, uneven, chipped, misaligned, uneven, or abnormally spaced teeth. Each veneer utilizes a powerful adhesive and is affixed to the outer face of each affected tooth to improve their appearance and strength. Veneers are normally constructed of either a special porcelain or resin composite materials. Many prefer the superior aesthetic properties of porcelain veneers, which are believed to have a greater ability to simulate the shimmer of natural teeth and their well-known stain resistance. Dr. Maduri Vanama and her staff will be happy to offer advice on the option which is best suited for you.
Why are Veneers a Solution to Dental Problems?
As years pass through our lives, enamel, the protective outer layer of our teeth, can become dulled, eroded, and tarnished with age and usage. A solution is to place dental veneers, which can reverse much of this wear, and restore a healthy smile due to factors such as: uneven teeth, excessive wear, hereditary faults, or discoloration. The latter is often related to genetics, but personal diet choices are also attributable for the formation of stains on our teeth. As we reach advanced age, our teeth become more susceptible to cracking, chipping, and damage caused by wear, negatively impacting their appearance. The application of dental veneers may be recommended by your Issaquah dentist as a suitable remedy.
Veneers remedy the following problems:
- Noticeably discolored teeth
- Uneven placement or shape
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Veneers are also an alternative to orthodontic braces (in some cases)
Veneers also follow the rule of “form following function”. They serve an additional purpose as a safeguard for the natural surface of an affected tooth, in addition to improving its appearance. Oftentimes, more extensive procedures, such as crowns or braces, can be avoided altogether through the selection of dental veneers, which require little advance preparation. The fact that veneers are affixed onto existing tooth structure and are very slight in stature also means that minimal modification of your teeth is necessary to ensure a lasting restoration.
A few advantages of choosing Dental Veneers:
- Eliminate the need for invasive adjustments
- Produce a realistically natural appearance
- Porcelain is well-tolerated by oral tissues
- The effect of darkened teeth can be readily diminished by dental Veneers
- Stain resistance of porcelain is a lasting benefit
A few disadvantages of choosing Dental Veneers:
- Repair is often unfeasible
- The removal of small amounts of enamel may result in temporary hyper-sensitivity of teeth and gums
- Permanence – veneers are a long-term decision (except Lumineers®)
- Resin bonding is a less costly solution to veneers
What are Lumineers®?
Among the best selling of “minimal preparation” options is Lumineers®. They differ from other types in that they do away with the need for your Issaquah dentist to perform any kind of surface modification or local anesthesia for your teeth, such as filing, grinding, drilling, or cutting to facilitate optimal placement. The long-term durability of Lumineers® means that they will provide a beautiful smile for over 20 years with appropriate care and maintenance, yet allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages. Best of all, unlike other dental veneer products,
Lumineers® are reversible, thus allowing additional options for the patient in the future since the structure of the tooth is not penetrated beyond the outer enamel.
