Porcelain Dental Veneers in Kailua-Kona with Dr. Carter Yokoyama
There are many different dental problems that a person may face. Accidental chips and cracks or tooth decay can mar the appearance of a tooth. Some teeth may have small but detectable levels of misalignment, or there may be slight but unsightly gaps between teeth. Perhaps there are severe stains on the teeth, making a person hesitant to smile. Dr. Carter Yokoyama can successfully treat all of these problems, and in some cases, all he needs is one dental treatment: porcelain veneers. By using porcelain veneers at his Kailua-Kona practice, Dr. Yokoyama can restore and enhance the appearance of your smile.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of a special dental ceramic that are bonded to the front facing surfaces of your teeth. The porcelain veneers will protect the teeth from damage and provide an aesthetically pleasing appearance. They are quite durable and do not require a lot of tooth structure to be removed in order for them to be placed.
The porcelain veneers are semi-translucent, allowing light to affect them just like your actual teeth. This ensures that when the veneers are placed they will look natural and not appear artificial. Dr. Yokoyama will color-match the porcelain veneers to your existing teeth as well, further ensuring a subtle but extremely effective cosmetic dentistry enhancement.
The Dental Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Fix
One of the best things about porcelain veneers is their versatility. Dr. Yokoyama has used porcelain veneers at his Kailua-Kona office to solve a wide array of dental problems. Porcelain veneers can effectively mask chips and cracks. Porcelain veneers can also be used to cover major stains that teeth whitening cannot effectively address. Even some level of tooth misalignment can be dealt with through the expert use of porcelain veneers rather than through major orthodontic treatment. This has led many to refer to porcelain veneers as “instant orthodontics.”
