If your teeth suffer from significant staining issues, it can leave you feeling socially awkward. One effective method for giving you a white smile is to have Dr. Lyudmila Shur install dental veneers.

These custom-shaped porcelain shells are shaped to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. Since the porcelain material is far less receptive to staining compounds than tooth enamel, your white smile will be easier to maintain.

Your dentist will start the process of installing dental veneers by examining all of the teeth in your smile. It’s important to determine the overall health of each tooth and the depth of the available enamel. Should one or more teeth be compromised, Dr. Lyudmila Shur will likely recommend replacing the entire enamel layer of the tooth with a porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Lyudmila Shur will then make a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.

When the veneers are ready, Dr. Lyudmila Shur will call you back in for a follow-up appointment. Then, she will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the porcelain shell into place.

If you have been struggling with tooth stains or other cosmetic imperfections in your smile, you should call Dr. Shur Dental at 425-741-2030 to see if you’re a good candidate for dental veneers in Lynnwood, Washington.
