Would you like to improve your smile without undergoing extensive dental work? If so, porcelain veneers may provide the perfect solution! dental-veneersOffered by the cosmetic dentists here at Mapledale Family Dentistry in Woodbridge, VA, read on to learn if this procedure is right for you.


Porcelain veneers keep flaws hidden

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are attached to the fronts of your teeth. Designed to conceal a variety of imperfections, ranging from discolorations to cracks and chips, these restorations closely resembles natural tooth enamel and can stand up to years of wear and tear. In fact, you may not need to replace your veneers for up to 20 years!

Veneers are a good choice if you have a small chip at the bottom of a tooth or if the surface of a tooth looks a little bumpy. Once your new veneer is placed on the tooth, the imperfection will disappear behind a layer of porcelain.

Veneers are also used to hide shallow cracks, close gaps between teeth, conceal discolorations, and even change the shape and length of teeth. Veneers can transform crooked teeth or those that have been worn down by grinding (if you grind your teeth, your Woodbridge dentist may recommend that you wear a nightguard while you sleep to in order to prevent damage to your veneers and teeth).


Veneers are stain-resistant

Unlike natural teeth, veneers won't become discolored if you eat darkly pigmented foods or consume stain-causing drinks such as coffee, tea, cola, and wine. Accordingly, if you are looking for a longer-lasting alternative to teeth whitening treatment, you may want to consider veneers.


The veneer process is simple

Your cosmetic dentist will remove a tiny amount of enamel from your teeth before applying your porcelain veneers. This step ensures that your restorations won't be bulky or look unnatural. You'll then leave the office with temporary veneers and return in a few weeks to receive your permanent veneers. Your dentist will temporarily apply the veneers to your teeth to check the fit, then make a few adjustments before permanently attaching them with dental cement.
