Are you tired of hiding your smile? Dr. Alan Macks may be able to help. At our dental practice in Tacoma, WA, veneers are a great option for many patients looking to improve the appearance of their smiles.
Veneers may be able to correct a number of common cosmetic concerns, including:
- Uneven teeth
- Worn enamel
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Dental veneers may be made from porcelain or dental composite material. These are tooth-colored wafer-thin shells, which are custom-made to cover the front surface of teeth. They improve the color and shape of your dentition. Veneers are bonded to the tooth and your dentist can create one that improves the overall size, shape or length to give you an aesthetically-pleasing smile.
The choice of material will depend upon your condition and preference. During your consultation visit with Dr. Alan Macks, you can discuss the pros and cons of the materials, depending on your case.
Lumineers veneers are unique in that they are contact lens-thin (approximately .2 mm) and super translucent. Traditional dental veneers are fused or bonded to teeth, requiring your dentist will need to grind down the tooth for a good fit. Since Lumineers veneers are so thin, little to no tooth reduction is required. In addition, Lumineers resists micro-leakage and micro-cracking.
Veneers can serve more than just a restorative purpose; they can also protect damaged teeth from further harm.
So if you're looking to make changes to your smile and do wonders for your self-esteem, it pays to explore your options. Give our office in Tacoma, WA a call today to set up an appointment, and find out if veneers are right for you.
