Custom-Designed Porcelain Veneers Can Rejuvenate Your Smile

Porcelain veneers from our Fairfax, VA, practice can easily conceal minor cosmetic flaws, such as cracks, chips, and stains. While the results can be dramatic, the treatment itself is conservative and minimally invasive. At Fairfax Family Dental Care, Dr. Charles D. Kirksey, Dr. Milan Simanek, or Dr. Touraj Kamali will conduct a thorough consultation. At this appointment, we will assess your smile, review your cosmetic dentistry goals, and determine your candidacy for veneers. If they determine that porcelain veneers are right for you, we will carefully design your restorations to ensure a natural color and shape. We collaborate with a top-quality lab that uses advanced porcelain for beautiful and long-lasting results.

Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?

Porcelain veneers can be an excellent solution for a number of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Cracks and chips
  • Stains that do not respond to teeth whitening
  • Crooked or rotated teeth that do not affect the force of your bite
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Disproportionately small teeth

To qualify for veneers, your teeth should be structurally sound. Previous decay may affect your candidacy since your teeth may not be strong enough for the preparatory process. To prepare your teeth for veneers, your dentist will need to remove a small layer of enamel. Therefore, if you have sustained significant enamel erosion, you may not be a candidate for veneers. 

Veneers have become one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options available today, and they offer a number of benefits.

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers have become one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options available today, and they offer a number of benefits:

  • Veneers placement is a minimally-invasive procedure with negligible side effects.
  • Veneers are very comfortable. In fact, once they have been in place for a few days, most patients do not notice them.
  • When you brush and floss every day and do not put excessive force on your teeth, veneers can last for years.
  • If desired, you can also combine veneers with other cosmetic procedures.
  • Thanks to the large selection of colors, it is easy to customize veneers to match your smile.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?

After your initial consultation to begin planning your treatment, veneers placement typically takes place over two appointments. At the first visit, your practitioner will reshape your teeth, removing a very thin top layer of enamel to make more room for the veneers. Then your practitioner will take impressions of your reshaped teeth, which our lab will use to design your restoration. When the veneers have been fabricated, e can schedule your second appointment. At this time, your dentist will use a mild solution to gently roughen the surface of your teeth. By increasing the surface area, he can improve the strength of the bond. Then your doctor will apply a bonding solution and attach the porcelain with composite resin. After the resin is hardened with a curing light, you could enjoy a near-flawless smile, and your dental function should be completely normal.
