Porcelain veneers are an incredible and easy way to transform your teeth.veneers

While teeth are pretty strong and durable, that doesn’t mean that they can take a lot of abuse without dealing with repercussions. From stains to gaps between teeth, there are many unattractive imperfections that can leave you feeling less than thrilled about your smile. But before you get downtrodden, let our Woodbridge, VA, dentist, Dr. Sowmya Punaji, turn your smile around with dental veneers.

They can handle an array of cosmetic issues

These small porcelain shells may not look like much but the minute they are bonded to your teeth you’ll be able to hide all of your cosmetic flaws. Dental veneers are great for hiding:

  • Cracks, chips and broken teeth
  • Discolorations
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Minor overlapping
  • Malformed/misshapen teeth
  • Worn down or small teeth

Veneers are designed to instantly make your smile whiter while also improving the size and shape of one or more teeth. Do you just hate that one discolored or malformed tooth that ruins the rest of your beautiful smile? Then cover it with a dental veneer!

The process of getting veneers is simple

Once our Woodbridge general dentist determines that you are an ideal candidate for veneers, it will only take two additional trips to our office to get your new smile. During the first trip, we will need to prep your teeth for veneers. This requires us to remove a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. This is completely painless and can usually be performed without even needing local anesthesia. We will also take impressions of your teeth while you are here.

Once the dental lab has created your veneers you will come back in so we can bond them to your teeth. We will also check your bite and the fit of your veneers before we permanently adhere them to your teeth. In just a few weeks you could have a truly transformed smile.

They are stain-resistant and designed to last many years

Since veneers are permanent you want a restoration that will be durable enough to last. Of course, this doesn’t mean that veneers can’t be damaged or stained it just means that the materials used to make these veneers can stand up again potential stains. It’s also best to limit or even avoid certain stain-causing foods or beverages like wine or coffee.
