Porcelain Veneers Downtown Seattle
Here at 4th & Seneca Dental, we create brilliant, natural-looking and high functioning smiles using porcelain veneers. For many in Seattle, porcelain veneers do more than change smiles; they change lives. Veneer patients often comment on improved self-confidence and emotional well-being. For dramatic smile makeovers in Seattle, most people turn to our premier cosmetic dentist for porcelain veneers. Our cosmetic dental office provides traditional veneers along with minimal prep and no prep veneers.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are cosmetic restorations that cover the front of your visible teeth, masking the tooth behind them. When we bond multiple veneers across the front of your smile, they instantly transform what you see in the mirror.
Unlike a crown, these thin porcelain or laminate shells wrap just around the edges of each tooth for aesthetic purposes. We recommend them for cosmetic concerns such as:
- Extensive staining
- Uneven or chipped teeth
- Gaps in your smile
- Mild crowding
- Misshaped enamel
- Pitting or irregular surfaces
Types of Seattle Porcelain Veneers
Depending on your situation, our practice uses two types of dental veneers: traditional porcelain veneers or minimal and “no prep” veneers. The unique advantages of each design allow for an authentic experience tailored the individual needs of our patients.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers
For brilliant and exceptional aesthetics, porcelain veneers are the treatment of choice. The handmade restorations are crafted to your color and shape preferences, giving you a beautiful yet natural looking smile.
The porcelain veneers process takes two visits to complete (after your initial consultation). First, we numb your teeth and make slight adjustments to the surface, so that a veneer won’t feel bulky once it’s bonded in place. Next, we’ll take an impression and send it to our ceramist. In the meantime, we’ll fit you with temporary veneers to prevent any sensitivity. About two weeks, later your permanent restorations will be ready to bond in place.
Minimal Prep & No Prep Veneers
Is it possible to get porcelain veneers without altering the shape of your supporting teeth? Yes! Thanks to Lumineers, you can have a no-prep restoration bonded to the front of your tooth. No numbing or drilling is needed!
Lumineers are made of an ultra-thin and exceptionally strong form of porcelain. The minimal prep that is sometimes needed is mostly just small etching into the enamel so that the veneer will bond to the tooth. With non-invasive Lumineers, you can enjoy a gorgeous smile and remove your veneers at any time in the future without having to replace them. Minimal and no prep dental veneers in Seattle are quickly gaining popularity for those looking for that Hollywood smile.
Creating Your Smile
To create beautiful smiles, Drs. Vo and Jayne consider many factors before designing your smile. The porcelain veneer smile makeover process begins with a conversation. You and our cosmetic dentist sit down and discuss your needs, wants, and vision of the most aesthetically pleasing smiles.
Then, Dr. Vo or Jayne, along with a dental care team member, perform an oral exam to gain a clear understanding of what is possible for your mouth. Once they have collected all of this information, the doctor partners with you to design the smile of your dreams.
When designing a custom cosmetic dentistry plan for you, Drs. Vo and Jayne take into account your oral and health histories, the shape of your face, mouth and lips, and they always consider your complexion, age and how light will reflect off your teeth. It is this level of attention to detail combined with years of experience that makes our doctors the ideal choice for cosmetic dentistry in Seattle.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
Depending on the type of veneer needed, how many being placed and what treatment prep will be needed for a successful case all play into how much your veneers will cost. Book a complimentary cosmetic consultation with us! Together we can hear and address your dental concerns and from there layout an appropriate treatment plan with associated costs.
While insurance typically doesn’t cover cosmetic dental procedures since they are most often “elective” we do offer both low interest and no interest dental financing.
