Your smile is an integral part of your overall appearance, so when imperfections exist, it’s natural to consider the benefits of addressing these issues. Cosmetic dental treatments are a popular solution for any of our patients at Galleria Dental Aesthetics. Our team offers McLean, VA area patients options for many types of problems, including gapped, chipped, or stained teeth. One dental treatment that is used in situations where the front (anterior) teeth are impacted by imperfections is that of the porcelain veneer. Porcelain veneers are best described as facings meant to disguise problems on the teeth. This is achieved by bonding a thin shell over the tooth’s front for an instant improvement!
What can porcelain veneers achieve?
Did you know that porcelain veneers are extremely versatile? These restorations are used in many situations, and can be used to:
- Restore a damaged tooth – a tooth that is chipped or cracked can be covered with a veneer to disguise the imperfection and keep the sharp edges of the tooth from cutting soft tissues in the mouth.
- Fix minor tooth misalignment – instead of undergoing months of orthodontic work, patients can fix mild tooth misalignment using porcelain veneers.
- Disguise gaps between the front teeth – gaps between the front teeth can be incredibly unsightly, but with porcelain veneers, these spaces are easily hidden between two restorations.
- Cover teeth that are permanently stained – permanently stained teeth that do not respond to professional teeth whitening can be disguised using a veneer.
- Complete a smile makeover – a beautiful smile might need more than just porcelain veneers. Our team provides complete smile makeovers, which may include the fabrication and placement of custom veneers along with other cosmetic treatments such as dental crowns, dental implants, professional teeth whitening, and composite resin bonding.
