What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that your dentist bonds to the surface of your tooth. They can help stabilize and strengthen your tooth, especially if you have a cracked or chipped tooth. Veneers are also a great option if you have severely discolored teeth, uneven or misaligned teeth, and even if you have significant gaps between your teeth. 

Veneers are the ultimate in smile makeovers; you can choose the style, shape, and shade of how your smile looks. If your teeth are too short, too long, or if you want an even smile then dental veneers can help since you can create a new surface for your tooth.

Each dental veneer is custom crafted for every patient by Dr. Jen Kim. Since the fabrication takes around two weeks, they are an excellent option for patients who want to make significant oral cosmetic improvements in a short time frame.

Dental veneers are nearly as strong as your natural teeth. As long as you practice good oral hygiene habits such as regular brushing and flossing and continue seeing us for your regular examinations and cleanings, your veneers should last for years.

To keep your veneers in great shape for even longer, don't smoke. Also, keep in mind that some beverages, including fruit juice, red wine, coffee, and tea, can cause staining. Don't bite or chew on anything that is not food including ice, fingernails, or pencils. These may chip your veneers or cause them to come loose.

Visit Our Office for Routine Maintenance 

Continue to visit our Kirkland dental office for regular cleanings and examinations. While your veneers cannot develop cavities, the teeth beneath them can. During your cleanings and exams, Dr. Kim will check the condition of your veneers to make sure that they are in great shape. While veneers are designed to be durable and stain resistant, they can still become damaged, and we can help you keep them in good shape.

Contact Us

If your veneers do become damaged, call us right away so that we can check the veneer and see if it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. Ready to learn more about veneers? Call Kirkland dentist Dr. Jen Kim today!
