Today it's more important than ever to have a put-together appearance. Our smiles are on prominent display in photos on social media and Zoom calls with business associates, and you want yours to project confidence and self-assurance.
If your smile isn't quite where you want it to be, porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment worth exploring. Veneers are thin, durable shells that our cosmetic dentist in Puyallup bonds to the visible surfaces of your teeth to conceal a multitude of aesthetic smile flaws.
How We Improve Your Smile with Dental Veneers
Once we cement them in place, veneers alter a tooth’s shape, shade, and size by concealing the flaws beneath, including:
- Slightly crooked teeth.
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.
- Tooth staining or discoloration that doesn’t respond to whitening.
- Uneven gaps spacing between teeth.
- Small, misshapen, or worn teeth.
Placing just a few veneers or an entire set takes the focus off of the aesthetic flaws so that people only notice you and your beautifully confident smile. Because Dr. Ron Ko crafts your dental veneers from the highest quality porcelain, they closely resemble healthy, white tooth enamel
Reasons to Choose Porcelain Veneers
There are lots of reasons why porcelain veneers are so popular with our Puyallup patients:
- Versatile: Veneers can address many different types of smile
- Natural look: We craft each veneer individually to look just like tooth enamel.
- Customized for your smile: We design veneers with a look that’s unique to your smile.
- Durable: Porcelain veneers stand up great to normal wear and tear and can provide many years of beautiful service.
- Stain-resistant: Veneers resist coffee, tea, and nicotine stains better than tooth enamel.
Same-Visit Dental Veneers with CEREC
It can be hard to imagine that such a simple treatment can do so much for your smile! And you'll love the convenience of same-visit veneers thanks to CEREC technology that creates your veneers right here at our Puyallup dental office.

In many cases, we can often complete your veneers using digital impressions, computer-aided design (CAD), and an in-office milling machine that creates your veneers in a single visit.
Caring for Your Dental Veneers
There’s no special care required for porcelain veneers; however, you do need to diligent with your oral hygiene, being sure to brush at least twice a day and floss once. If you develop a cavity or gum disease and require treatment, we may need to remove and replace one or more of your veneers.
