Do you wish you could enjoy your smile? Do you have some flaws that you wish you could hide? If so, then we have exciting news for you! Dental veneers are a way to conceal these flaws and give you a smile you can adore and be proud of. Here at LifeSmile Dental Group in Portland, Oregon, our team is happy to give you some information on dental veneers, so you can see if they are right for you.

Dental veneers are in the category with cosmetic dentistry, and veneers have been wildly successful. Dental veneers are custom-made, colored shells that bond to the front of each individual tooth. These shells are extremely thin and appear as if they are your natural tooth, so no one knows otherwise except you and your dentist.

Dental veneers are extremely strong; and with proper care they can last up to ten years! Since they are not made of the same enamel as your teeth, they are not subject to tooth decay, but the tooth behind your dental veneer is, which means brushing and flossing are still vital to do each day.

If you have stains or damage in your smile you wish to hide, or just simply want a consultation with Dr. Thomas Hicks, please call us today at 503-644-5433 to set up an appointment. Our gentle staff is dedicated when it comes to helping you have a smile that is healthy, and a smile you can enjoy and be proud of when it shines!
