Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Northern Virginia, including Arlington, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, Fairfax, and McLean, Virginia Cosmetic Dentistry
WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?
Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain shells that can be placed over your existing teeth to correct a myriad of minor cosmetic issues. Molded and shaped to match adjacent teeth, porcelain veneers are a quick, safe, and effective way to perfect your smile. Faster than more invasive procedures and substantially longer-lasting than whitening services, veneers are quickly becoming one of the most common McLean cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at Galleria Dental Aesthetics.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PORCELAIN VENEERS?
The process for veneers, from start to finish, takes only a few short weeks. Some of the more notable benefits are:
- Porcelain veneers look and feel like your natural teeth
- Porcelain veneers resist stains, providing a lasting, brilliantly white smile
- Porcelain veneers won’t cause gum sensitivity or promote gum disease
- Porcelain veneers will not cause tooth sensitivity since they are placed over the teeth
- Porcelain veneers do not require any special care after they have been placed
WHAT CAN PORCELAIN VENEERS CORRECT?
Porcelain veneers are a strictly cosmetic procedure. As such, they cannot be used to correct larger issues like broken or missing teeth. However, porcelain veneers are one of the safest, most effective solutions for minor cosmetic repairs. Teeth that are cracked, chipped, discolored, unevenly shaped, spaced, or sized, can all easily be covered by porcelain veneers; making them ideal for patients who desire a perfect smile without undergoing serious dental procedures.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR PORCELAIN VENEERS?
Almost everyone who has cracked, chipped, unevenly spaced, or discolored teeth is a candidate for porcelain veneers. We look at the whole face to help determine the size and shape of your porcelain veneers because the correct width and length of the veneers is aesthetically pleasing not only to your mouth but to your entire face.
