If Porcelain Dolls are Fragile, Why are Porcelain Restorations Durable?

June 13, 2018

The key is using the highest grade porcelain and cementing it into position properly, so the underlying tooth structures provide support and strength. In fact, porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, and other restorations are just as strong if not stronger than your healthy tooth enamel, and they can be shaded to perfectly match these natural structures.

Unless, of course, you’re embarrassed by your smile and tend to hide it. In that case, the message isn’t sent and certainly not received. To reveal your beautiful smile, Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey at The Dentists at Orenco Station in Hillsboro, OR, may recommend permanently hiding your teeth behind porcelain veneers.

Reclaim Your Confidence with Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is an ultra-thin, stain-resistant shell of porcelain that is meticulously crafted fit precisely over a natural tooth. Because the porcelain is shaded to match the color of natural tooth enamel, it blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

  • Hilary Duff
  • Tom Cruise
  • Zac Efron
  • Miley Cyrus
  • Victoria Beckham
  • Ben Affleck
  • Catherine Zeta Jones
  • Nicolas Cage
  • George Clooney
  • Demi Moore

Porcelain veneers are used to correct a wide variety of cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Teeth that are unevenly spaced
  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Deep discoloration
  • Cracks or chips in enamel
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are too short or misshapen

If you are unhappy with what you see in the mirror or in photographs of your smile, don’t hesitate to take the first step toward a revitalized appearance with porcelain veneers.

Enhance Your Smile with Custom-Made Porcelain Veneers

August 19, 2013

Every patient wants to have a smile they feel confident about. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with a smile that’s naturally straight or white. That’s why Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr.  Malinda Kearbey of The Dentists at Orenco Station offer porcelain veneers.

This cosmetic dentistry service is among the most popular offered today. With a few thin pieces of porcelain, the team at The Dentists of Orenco Station can help you transform a stained, misaligned, chipped, or cracked smile into one that looks naturally dazzling. What’s more, the entire procedure can be completed in just two visits to our Hillsboro dental office.

What to Expect from a Porcelain Veneers Procedure

During the first of your two porcelain veneers visits, your doctor will take molds of your smile. We’ll also talk to you about how you want your smile to look when we’re all done. Then, our lab technicians will take the information we gather during that first appointment and use it to make customized veneers that will match the shade and shape of your natural smile.

On your second appointment, we’ll reveal your finished veneers and affix them to the front of your smile. Then, with your transformed smile in place, you can go back to your normal schedule feeling more confident than maybe you ever have.

Call The Dentists at Orenco Station to ask us a question about porcelain veneers or schedule a consultation appointment. We’re happy to create beautiful smiles for patients of Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, Rock Creek, and beyond.

Our Hillsboro Cosmetic Dentistry Options

April 4, 2013

Do you wish you had a more beautiful, more confident smile? At The Dentists of Orenco Station, Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey can provide effective cosmetic care with some of today’s best cosmetic dentistry services.

Dr. Brandon and Dr. Malinda commit themselves to advanced continuing education in the areas of cosmetic dentistry and reconstructive dentistry. They continue to be trained through Spear Education, a leader in the field. After many hours of study at home, Drs. Brandon and Malinda traveled to the Spear Center in Scottsdale, AZ for an intensive hands-on course. They are also involved in a local Spear Study Club that compliments the other aspects of this education.  Through this always ongoing process, they are able to provide you with the best possible care available.

Our services include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Smile makeovers
  • ClearCorrect

Using one or more of these, we can help you eliminate embarrassing stains, hide chips or cracks, and straighten misaligned teeth.

Of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer, teeth whitening is one of the most popular. That’s partly because staining is something we all have to face. Many stains are caused by regular, everyday things like coffee, tea, red wine, or soda. Other things that can contribute include tobacco use, aging, and even some medications.

Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey offer two whitening solutions for Hillsboro patients to take advantage of: in-office and take-home teeth whitening. Both can deliver professional results in a way that’s convenient for patients.

Porcelain veneers are also popular for their ability to whiten teeth, in addition to hiding flaws like cracks or chips. The porcelain veneers process takes at least two visits and yields results that look natural and will last for years to come with proper care.

Finally, ClearCorrect is both a restorative and cosmetic dentistry service that uses invisible braces to move teeth into their ideal alignment. With teeth correctly aligned, patients can enjoy improved confidence and better oral health.

Which Service Is Right for You?

Do you want to know more about a particular service? Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey would be happy to answer your questions. Following a consultation, they can also recommend a specific plan that will meet your personal needs.
