If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be? Many answers involve the teeth. We often feel like we have less control over our smiles than we do the other parts of our bodies. After all, no amount of working out, expensive hair care products, or specialized skin creams will straighten, whiten, or otherwise alter a smile. But dental changes don’t need to feel inaccessible. With the continuing growth and popularity of cosmetic dental treatments, aesthetic alterations are becoming more frequent and versatile. One of the most varied restorations is the porcelain veneer. With a veneer, Dr. Kim Okamura is able to change a front tooth in any way you’d like. And a full set of veneers unlocks possibilities you may not even have dreamed of.

Changes Porcelain Veneers May Make To Your Smile

  • Lengthen teeth, to correct worn teeth or a gummy smile
  • Permanently brighten teeth and hide stains or discoloration
  • Strengthen teeth to cover tooth roots and reduce sensitivity
  • Straighten teeth (without orthodontic treatment!)
  • Fill gaps between teeth

A full set of porcelain veneers for your upper teeth will allow you to tailor-make your own smile. We think that’s a pretty exciting prospect. Visit our Smile Gallery to see what a few of our past patients have made of their smiles.

Porcelain is the Preferred Aesthetic Material

Dental porcelain mimics natural enamel to create restorations that blend beautifully with your other teeth. Porcelain is semi-translucent, so that a small amount of light passes through its surface. It may be made in any color, so that your restorations will be a seamless part of your smile. The surface of porcelain shares an enamel-like texture, and Dr. Okamura will put the finishing touches on your veneers so that they share the minimal variations of natural teeth.

Your veneers will rebuild your smile without appearing to be anything other than natural. Learn more by getting in touch with our office!
