How Porcelain Veneers can Enhance your Smile
- Posted on: Jul 30 2018
Dr. Danine Fresch Gray and the team at Clarendon Dental Arts in Arlington, VA understand how important it is to have a beautiful smile to share with others. However, imperfections such as misalignment, permanent staining, and breakage can negatively detract from one’s appearance. If you are struggling with the look of your smile and want fast, affordable, and natural-looking repairs, we encourage you to call our staff and discuss the options available to you. One highly recommended solution for the anterior (front) teeth is that of porcelain veneers.
Understanding porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are restorations that are made specifically for aesthetic purposes. They are facings of ceramic that are used to cover the front of the tooth and make it look more attractive. This is perfect for teeth that may not be easily recovered using alternative methods. Additionally, porcelain veneers are made in a dental laboratory with great care to ensure that they are as natural-looking as possible. Our dental team matches the veneer with the patient’s existing teeth in shape, size, and color for seamless integration into the smile.
The process of obtaining porcelain veneers is simple. Patients first choose this as their cosmetic treatment, then book an appointment for the preparation of their natural tooth. The dentist files down the front of the tooth, then takes impressions which are used at the dental laboratory to fabricate the final restorations. Within a week or two, they arrive back at the office to have the veneers bonded in place. With proper care and attention, most patients can enjoy their new restorations for approximately ten years or longer!
