Imperfections of the teeth near the front of the smile can make a big different in the overall appearance of a man or woman. Oftentimes, the smile is the first thing people notice about others. Is it time to make a positive impact with your first impression? If you are a patient in the McLean, VA area who is seeking cosmetic treatments, the team at Galleria Dental Aesthetics can assist with solutions such as porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers explained
Drs. Chong Lee, Joseph Oh, and Kirsten Lee of Galleria Dental Aesthetics find that porcelain veneers are a wonderful solution for many imperfections that can affect the anterior (front) teeth. Porcelain veneers may be used to treat:
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
Most patients are appropriate candidates for these restorations, which act as very thin facings that are bonded onto the front of a tooth to change the appearance. It is important that patients have a healthy smile, as conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay can still occur on teeth that have porcelain veneers covering them.
Obtaining porcelain veneers is simple. Once patients are considered candidates for veneers, the dentist prepares the tooth by filing down some of the enamel on the front. Then, impressions are taken and sent out to a dental ceramist for fabrication of the new restoration, then returned to the office for final bonding.
