Porcelain Veneers

If you often conceal your perfectly healthy smile, it may be due to your concerns about one or two esthetic issues. Millions of people hide their smiles behind closed lips, or don’t smile at all because of:

  • Discoloration or staining
  • Mild to moderately gapped teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • “Gummy” smiles
  • Chipped or worn teeth
  • Cracked or damaged teeth
  • Mild to moderately crooked teeth

And in almost all of these instances, porcelain veneers are the ideal answer. Michael Miyamoto, DDS at Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI is happy to discuss the option of porcelain veneers as part, or as a complete, solution to your dental needs.

Though porcelain veneers are the work of a cosmetic dentist, our dental office provides our patients with a full array of cosmetic, restorative, and general treatments in addition to specialized options. Porcelain veneers are a popular treatment because they are such a long-lasting and easy to use solution to a diversity of issues.

The way that they are done is extremely simple, painless and quick. You come to the office and receive an exam. When we are sure your teeth and gums are in their healthiest condition, we then prepare the teeth to accept the veneers. Though they are remarkably thin shells of super-strong dental veneer, we do need to remove a small layer of your natural enamel. Accurate molds of your teeth are taken, and the color documented for the lab to use in making your customized veneers.

We fit you with temporary porcelain veneers and you can go home and speak, eat and look like before. When your veneers arrive from the lab within a few days, you simply return, and we use a highly effective bonding process to apply your perfect veneers in place. You leave the dentist office with a new smile that is free of cosmetic flaws and needs only regular oral hygiene and dental cleanings to provide years of service.

In addition to their cosmetic benefits, it is also important to note the restorative benefits of porcelain veneers too. After all, if you are a patient with healthy teeth and gums, but also someone with a chipped or damaged tooth, the veneers can be used to restore the tooth to full function. This is due to the incredible strength of the veneer along with the bonding process used to adhere it to the tooth in need of treatment. When a tooth is lightly chipped, damaged or cracked, it is an ideal candidate for treatment with veneers, which will conceal the damage while also fortifying and stabilizing the tooth.
