Porcelain Veneers

Transform Your Smile

It’s easy to watch movies and television and wonder how the actors get those pristine and flawless smiles. “How do they do that?” many people wonder. Often, their secret involves a simple treatment called porcelain veneers, which you can now get right here in Renton at SDK Dental Care. With just two appointments, Dr. Sam DK Kim can enhance just about every aspect of your smile and give you a set of teeth that will fill you with confidence.

The Wonders of Porcelain Veneers

  • Instantly whiten teeth
  • Fix small chips and cracks
  • Close large, obvious gaps
  • Straighten slightly misaligned teeth

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are actually extremely thin porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Thanks to the quality of the material, they can even make your teeth stronger. Plus, dental porcelain is stain-resistant, meaning your smile will stay the same level of whiteness from the day you get them.

What is the Procedure Like?

It normally takes just two visits to get a complete set of porcelain veneers (as in enough to cover the front teeth that show whenever you smile). After you and Dr. Kim have determined what you want your final result to look like, he’ll start the procedure by gently removing a tiny portion of your natural enamel (only about 2mm). This will create room for the veneers themselves. He’ll then take an impression of your teeth and send it to a dental lab to make your veneers. During this time, he’ll fit you with a temporary set so you can “test-drive” your new smile.

When you return, Dr. Kim will bond the final veneers to your teeth using a substance that has been specially shaded to match the color of your teeth. After final adjustments are made, your new smile is ready! With just a few veneers, Dr. Kim can completely change your appearance, and we’re sure you’ll start feeling great immediately.
