Porcelain Veneers

Call Northwest Dental today for your appointment to see if veneers are right for you! We would like to hear from you and discuss the options!

There have been many developments in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry cannot only enhance your self-confidence; it can also restore complete function of the teeth. Porcelain veneers, bonding, bleaching, and crowns are some of the most typical treatments.

Veneers can be an excellent alternative for cracked, stained, broken, irregular or unattractive teeth. Since these teeth veneers can be attached to the natural tooth as a thin layer of porcelain, they can drastically alter the shape and appearance of your smile. It is often a quick appointment. Your dental expert will take an impression of your teeth and veneers will be customized for you. Your teeth are then ground down and a thin porcelain layer is cemented onto the existing tooth. The veneer acts as the new enamel for the tooth and helps reinforce it. Not only can it help reshape teeth, it can whiten them too. By adding a porcelain overlay to the front teeth it can instantly whiten your entire smile. Veneers can also be made to look like the existing color of your teeth to provide a smooth transition. Dental veneers can even fill out gaps between the teeth, creating an ideal smile. The appearance is so natural it’s often difficult to see that you’ve even had dental work done at all! The friendly staff at NW Dental makes sure that every patient leaves smiling bigger and much better than in the past.

Porcelain Veneers - Before and After

Other common types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Tooth bonding is utilized to deal with a little area of broken, stained or a little decayed teeth. A resin it put over the tooth to conceal the affected area. This can last for several years, and it reinforces the tooth enamel. Bonding can be more vulnerable to staining or cracking.

Whitening the teeth is a terrific alternative for patients desiring a whiter smile. This can be done at home, or in our office. For maximum results, it is advised that a dental expert creates a custom mouthpiece for you and the whitening is finished in clinic. You can leave with a brand new smile in under one hour!

Crowns are not only cosmetic, they can be utilized to minimize discomfort in a decayed or fractured tooth. The affected tooth is shaved down, to produce a “nub” for the porcelain crown to be put over. You will first be numbed, so that you are comfortable. Your dentist will then take an impression of the tooth to be customized in the laboratory. While your tooth is being produced, a short-term crown is placed over the tooth. You can still chew and bite as normal, however it may still be tender. Creating your best replica usually takes about a week or more. This allows your mouth time to recover from the first procedure. As quickly as your custom tooth is made, your dental practitioner will get rid of the short-term crown and seal the porcelain crown in place. Your new tooth will look and feel natural. It is always important to take excellent care of your teeth to prevent any issues. Always get regular oral cleanings, and keep in mind to brush and floss your teeth typically.
