Are celebrities such as Hollywood movie stars all born with perfect teeth? It would seem so, but the truth is, many of the smiles you admire on the silver screen have had some cosmetic help from porcelain dental veneers!
What are dental veneers, exactly?
Dental veneers are thin layers or shells made from tooth-colored materials — porcelain at our office — that are custom-designed to fit over the front surface of a tooth, similar to the way false nails fit onto fingernails.
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic dental treatments that improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth that has been badly discolored or damaged through decay or injury. They are popular for their effectiveness in making imperfect teeth look healthy and natural again.
In some cases, dental veneers are helpful beyond reasons pertaining to cosmetics: Sometimes porcelain dental veneers provide protection for a tooth that’s vulnerable to damage.
Dental veneers are used to correct slightly crooked teeth; to restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn, or fractured; to close large spaces between teeth; to improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth; or to whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored.
So, if you’d like to smile like a movie star, Smiles Dental invites you to call our office at 360.200.6995 to discuss how porcelain dental veneers could help your stellar smile!
