If you’re experiencing tooth pain, you know that it can distract both your work and personal life. Any soreness can have major impacts on the rest of your body and even your mental health.

One of our patients went through that same discomfort.

“I was actually in pain for eight months. The tooth was really troublesome, and I knew I had to take care of that tooth.”

In this real-life testimonial, you’ll see how our patient went from everyday tooth pain to smiling with confidence – all thanks to porcelain veneers.

Veneers are an excellent way to not only improve your smile but to relieve discomfort as well.

In the video below, hear our patient share:

  • The tooth pain she was experiencing
  • Why she decided to invest in porcelain veneers
  • Her experience at Smiles By Design

What made this patient choose Smiles by Design?

As this patient searched for the right dentist in Kirkland, WA, she grew tired of being in pain and wanted results quickly.

Quick results require a dentist to have enough experience and knowledge to execute their work efficiently. This is exactly why she chose to work with Dr. Keller.

He has over 20 years of experience working in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and she knew immediately that he’d make her smile goals a top priority.

Dr. Keller takes a total health approach to every case. He chose to work in dentistry after spending years with neck pain and migraines and getting no answers from doctors.

After finding a solution to his pain through dentistry, he now helps his patients do the same!

Why did this patient choose veneers to fix her tooth pain?

In general, there are two main reasons patients ask for veneers:

  • They want to see their smile go from average to astounding
  • They want relief from toothaches, TMJ symptoms, and other discomforts

Sometimes it’s both!

Veneers also fix staining from braces and misshapen or damaged teeth, among many other issues this cosmetic treatment can solve.

However, all of these people have one thing in common:

They just want to feel better – on the inside and outside!

This patient chose to invest in veneers because Dr. Keller took the time to explain the full benefits.

“We had a lot of tutorials that made me realize it’s not just taking care of one tooth. It’s not just the aesthetic part. It’s a full combination that drives your smile and drives your health in the right direction.”

Veneers help you:

  • Protect your teeth: Porcelain veneers are made from strong, durable material that won’t scratch or stain as natural teeth might. They are ready for the long haul!
  • Get TMJ pain relief: TMJ disorder creates headaches and pain in the face muscles. We’ll use advanced technology to analyze your bite and build veneers to break down that annoying pain.
  • Align your jaw: Dr. Keller will use neuromuscular technology and advanced training to ensure your jaw is aligned correctly before placing porcelain veneers.

“If you’d really like to keep smiling for the rest of your life, you need to go and see Dr. Shawn Keller.”
