Porcelain Veneers in Kirkland

The secret to getting a celebrity-worthy smile!

Are Porcelain Veneers Worth It?

If you want a beautiful, natural-looking smile, the answer is YES!

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that adhere to the front of your teeth. They change your teeth’s shape, size, color, and more! This cosmetic treatment is widely used to hide smile flaws, including:
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
Porcelain veneers also improve your smile’s structure, which can treat TMJ pain or prevent oral health problems.

Why Are Porcelain Veneers So Popular?

Fully Customizable
From the shade of white to the curvature on the edges, you choose exactly how you’d like your veneers to look. If you’re unsure, Dr. Keller can recommend a smile style.
Long-Term Investment
Porcelain veneers are made of strong, durable material and are not subject to decay or staining. They are one of the longest-lasting cosmetic treatments you can get.
Quick Results
Unlike orthodontics, porcelain veneers instantly fix your smile flaws. And because we perform the entire treatment in-house, we minimize wait times and place your new smile in 2-3 appointments.
Improved Appearance
Porcelain veneers can make you look years younger and give your facial structure the support it needs as you continue to age. It’s like a non-surgical facelift!

FAQs About Porcelain Veneers

Answers from our top cosmetic dentist in Kirkland, WA.

  • How much do porcelain veneers in Kirkland cost?
    There’s no one set price for veneers. The only way you can know how much it will cost is to schedule a consultation.

    During your initial visit, we’ll go over your smile goals, review your oral health, and determine how many veneers you’ll need. Then we’ll outline the costs and go over financing options if needed.

  • Is the procedure painful?
    No, getting veneers is an easy, relatively painless process!

    Before we prep your teeth for the veneers, we’ll make sure you’re numb and comfortable. Then we’ll remove as little of the tooth as possible.

    If you suffer from dental anxiety or need extensive work, you may enjoy the benefits of sedation dentistry to help you relax.

    After we place your temporary or permanent veneers, it may take you a few days to adjust to your new bite, but it shouldn’t cause you pain.

  • Do veneers ruin your teeth?
    No. Your tooth structure will remain sound and healthy – in fact, a veneer may improve it!

    However, the enamel layer (outer surface) typically requires a minimal reduction to allow the veneer shell to fit seamlessly.

    So even though you can safely remove a veneer without damaging your tooth or oral health, you may not want to because of this slight alteration in appearance.

    Rest assured; we’ll make sure you love your new smile and never look back!

  • Are veneers permanent?
    Veneers made of porcelain tend to outlast other materials used like composite. The average lifespan is 10+ years.

    Reasons why they might not last long include:

    • Poor oral health
    • Receding gum lines
    • Damage, like cracks

    But just like your natural teeth, here’s how you can make them last:

    • Brush your teeth twice a day
    • Floss daily
    • Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and cleaning
    • Don’t use your teeth to open items (bottle, packages, etc.)
    • Don’t chew on hard surfaces (ice, pencils, etc.)

    One big reason why patients choose Dr. Keller for porcelain veneers is because of his technology. Technology helps him design and place your veneers with the longest life expectancy in mind.
