Sometimes you want to get the fastest solution for a problem, and that includes cosmetic flaws in your smile. If you’d like to learn how we can make your slightly crooked teeth look straight in just a few visits, call A Downtown Dental Group at 808-797-3680 to book a consultation with us for dental veneers.
So you can hold onto your money until you’re sure that you want to get any treatments we offer at our Honolulu, HI dentist office, we offer free consultations and second opinions. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry options so you can get the smile you want without having to waste time jumping from one specialist to the next.
Custom dental veneers are an incredibly versatile cosmetic option because they completely cover the front surface of teeth. Below, we’ll specifically discuss using veneers as a form of “instant orthodontics,” but we also want you to know they can be used to conceal a variety of smile imperfections, including:
- Minor cracks
- Stains or discoloration that teeth whitening may not be able to address
- Small gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are worn-down or misshapen in some way
Because we want to help you fix every smile flaw that may be concerning you, we can also combine veneers with various other cosmetic treatments so you can design your own custom smile makeover. For example, some patients choose to get veneers to fix flaws with their teeth and gum recession treatment to improve the look of their gums as well.
We take a variety of dental insurances, but often times, insurance will not cover the cost of cosmetic treatments because they are not required for your oral health. But we still offer flexible options for patients to pay for veneers. For instance, we offer some of our own in-house financing options and accept third-party financing from CareCredit and Compassionate Finance.
For your convenience, we offer Saturday hours from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and open early at 7:40 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Choose Dental Veneers For “Instant Orthodontics”
As mentioned above, veneers have a lot of uses, but one that patients with slightly crooked teeth love is that they can be used as a form of “instant orthodontics.” If your teeth are severely misaligned, this may not be the best choice for your case.
We’ll review your current alignment thoroughly before confirming that veneers are a good solution for you. If you cannot use veneers as instant orthodontics, we can also provide:
- Traditional braces that use metal wires and brackets
- Invisalign clear aligners systems
- Short-term clear aligners
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that we can place on the front surface of your teeth and bond in place, concealing a wide variety of issues. At A Downtown Dental Group, we have an in-house porcelain specialist that can make your veneers to exacting specifications right here in downtown Honolulu.
In order to get veneers placed, your teeth will need to be in good health. Before beginning your treatment, we will examine your overall oral health.
The process of having veneers placed is relatively simple to understand. First, we will carefully look over your teeth, measure them, and take highly-detailed impressions. Then, we will design your veneers and provide a wax-up preview so you will know what to expect when your smile improvements are complete. To actually perform your procedure, we will:
- Remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth
- Apply a little bonding material to your teeth
- Place your veneers on your tooth surfaces
- Make any minor adjustments that may be necessary
To make your overall experience as comfortable as possible, we offer some options to help you relax, including:
- Cozy blankets
- Soft pillows
- Headphones so you can listen to your favorite music while we work
- Starbucks coffee, water, and other refreshments
We can also provide an extended appointment in one of our private care rooms by request if you want to avoid feeling rushed at all. Patients who fear the dentist can also benefit from our dental sedation options to help relieve dental anxiety.
