If you are an adult who is dealing with cosmetic imperfections that leave you hiding your smile then it’s time to talk to us about how dental veneers could benefit you.


What is a dental veneer?

A veneer is a very thin piece of porcelain that mimics the look and translucency of real tooth enamel. This porcelain shell is permanently bonded to the front of each tooth to alter its appearance and improve the overall shape, size and color of your smile. Veneers are great if you are dealing with multiple or more widespread cosmetic flaws. For examine, porcelain veneers may be a great option if you are looking to cover,

  • Chips and cracks
  • Severe discolorations
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked or misaligned smiles
  • Misshapen or malformed teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down

As you can see, dental veneers can hide a wide range of aesthetic problems to give you a more beautiful smile. In fact, simply getting veneers from our McLean, VA, cosmetic dentists could actually give you a straighter smile in just a couple of visits without ever needing to get braces. We find that veneers are a great option for many adults dealing with small gaps between teeth or minor crowding.


What is involved in getting veneers?

In as little as two visits to our office, you could get a new and improved smile thanks to veneers. During your first visit, we will prep your teeth so they are ready to receive your veneers. To do this, we will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. Don’t worry; you won’t feel a thing. From there, impressions of your teeth are taken and then a dental lab will receive the information necessary to create your veneers.

During your second visit, we will place the veneers. We will check the fit of your veneers and your bite before permanently bonding them to your teeth.
