Find out if getting porcelain veneers in Honolulu is the right treatment option for you.

It’s amazing how much a healthy smile says about you. About 63 percent of people think they look better in photos when they have open smiles and about 74 percent of people think that a bad smile can hurt someone’s professional and personal success. If you are Veneerssomeone dealing with a less-than-perfect smile, dental veneers are a great way to cosmetically enhance your teeth and hide imperfections. Find out what it takes to get porcelain veneers in Honolulu.

Tooth Preparation

What makes getting veneers so ideal is that the treatment isn’t invasive, and requires only minimal tooth preparation prior to application. We will begin by shaving down a small amount—about ½ millimeter—of your tooth’s enamel. This will help us to make room for your veneers so that you don’t have a bulky smile.

Applying Veneers

Once tooth preparation is complete, we will start choosing the veneers that offer a radiant yet natural shade for your new smile. Veneers offer a translucency that mimics that of natural teeth, so what you’ll be left with is a natural, brighter smile that no one will be able to tell isn’t yours.

Once we choose the right shade we will temporarily place the veneers on your teeth for your approval. Once you are satisfied, we will apply a special dental cement between the veneers and your teeth. Then we will use a laser beam to cure the cement and permanently adhere the porcelain veneers to your teeth.

The process is truly that simple! Dental veneers do not require special care, so you can follow the same oral care regime that you always have.
