What Are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored shells that adhere to the front of your teeth.

Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Before placing dental veneers, one of our dentists in Fairfax, VA, will ensure you have:

Sufficient Enamel

Your tooth will need a small amount of enamel removed for your dentist to place the veneers, so you must have enough enamel to begin with.

Good Oral Health

Tooth decay, gum disease, or severe damage will need to be addressed before any cosmetic dentistry treatment can take place.

Purely Cosmetic Issues

If you have missing teeth or severe misalignment, we may recommend restorative dentistry solutions or orthodontics instead.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed? A Closer Look Into the Process

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last 10 years or longer.

Initial Consultation

Upon your first visit to our office, your dentist will discuss your cosmetic concerns and smile goals to determine if porcelain veneers are ideal. If they are, we’ll schedule your treatment.

Reshaping Your Teeth

Your dentist will reshape your teeth, removing a thin layer of enamel to make room for the veneers. Then, they will take impressions of your reshaped teeth, which a dental lab will use to design your restoration. Your dentist may place temporary veneers at this time.

Crafting Your Veneers

We collaborate with a top-quality lab that uses advanced porcelain for beautiful and long-lasting results. The average lab turn-around time is two weeks.

Placing Your Veneers

During your second appointment, your dentist will etch the surface of your teeth to improve the strength of the bond. Then, they will apply a bonding solution and attach the porcelain with a specialized dental cement.

Enjoying Your Smile

After your dentist hardens the bonding material with a curing light, you can enjoy a beautiful smile and completely normal dental function.
