If you are looking to cosmetically boost your smile then it might be time to consider veneers.

It’s no surprise that your smile is often the first thing a person sees. So, what does your smile say about you? If you shy away from social interactions because your smile just isn’t what you want it to be, Federal Way, WA cosmetic dentist Dr. Todd G. Yoshino is here to help Veneers you figure out whether dental veneers are right for you.

What are veneers capable of?

If you’ve never heard of veneers before it can be hard to know just how much they are able to fix. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to hide imperfections. Veneers are about the thickness of a fingernail and are created to match the shade of your smile so they blend seamlessly and look natural.

Dental veneers are a great option for Federal Way patients dealing with these problems:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chips and cracks
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Minor misalignment

Am I a good candidate?

If you are dealing with any of the above issues then veneers could be the optimum way to get the straighter, brighter and chip-free smile you’ve been wanting. The best patient for veneers should also have these factors:

  • Be ready to care for their veneers and keep their smile healthy
  • Figure out effective ways to stop teeth grinding or jaw clenching prior to getting veneers
  • Be prepared to have veneers for the rest of your life. Since some enamel needs to be removed prior to bonding the veneers to your teeth you’ll have to be committed to having veneers the rest of your life.
  • Only be dealing with minor misalignments and issues. Those with more severe cracks, misalignments and crookedness may be better suited for other cosmetic options.
