You could get a completely new and improved smile in just 2-3 visits to our office.

While there are some lucky individuals who are gifted with perfect smiles, most of us will deal with little imperfections that impact the veneeroverall look of our smiles. If you wish your teeth were longer, more even or whiter then it might be time to turn to our Honolulu, HI, cosmetic dentist Dr. Cecile Sebastian to find out if dental veneers are right for you.

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your smile to alter the shape, size or color of your teeth. If you’ve ever wished your smile were just a little straighter, whiter or more even, then dental veneers might be the best cosmetic treatment to meet your needs.

The porcelain used is medical-grade and designed to look just like real tooth enamel. In fact, it even mimics the translucency and light reflection in the same way as enamel so no one will be able to tell that you even have dental veneers.

What goes into getting dental veneers?

Getting dental veneers is actually a pretty simple process and unlike other options like crowns, veneers require very little tooth preparation. Before getting veneers, we will need to shave off a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth (usually no more than 0.5mm). 

Once your teeth are prepped we will take impressions of your mouth. These impressions will provide a dental lab with the exact measurements they need to create your very own custom-made veneers. In the meantime, temporary veneers may be placed on your smile. Once your veneers are ready you’ll come in for a final fitting where we will bond the veneers directly to the front of your teeth.

Who is a good candidate for dental veneers?

If you are dealing with discolorations, chips and cracks, minor crowding or misshapen teeth then dental veneers could be the simple solution you need to get your dream smile. Of course, before you can get dental veneers our Honolulu dentist will need to examine your smile to make sure that your teeth are healthy enough for veneers.

Are you looking to get a smile makeover in Honolulu, HI? Want to find out if you are an ideal candidate for dental veneers? If so, then call our office today to schedule a consultation with our very own Dr. Sebastian. Your smile is waiting.
