Dental veneers can help restore your uneven, chipped, dull, stained, broken, misaligned or gapped teeth. Advances in cosmetic dental technology help dental veneers look natural and appealing, providing a bright and healthy looking smile.
Dental veneers are made of wafer thin shells of ceramic, porcelain or composite materials, and are attached to the front part of the teeth to improve their appearance. They are customized to fit each patient's teeth perfectly. This will help attain a natural-looking, healthy smile.
Porcelain dental veneers mask the discoloration or unevenness of teeth to make them look uniform, bright and sparklingly white. Porcelain's smooth surface also makes it hard for stains to stick permanently, which is why porcelain is not prone to discoloration.
Before applying the dental veneers, our Herndon dentists need to examine the teeth and mouth completely. This examination is to ensure that veneers are applicable in the patient's case, and will enable our dentists to then explain the specific procedure to the patient in detail.
The best candidates for the dentist veneers are patients with healthy teeth. Damaged or decayed teeth are not suitable for this tooth restoration process because it will be difficult to bond the veneer on unstable tooth. If teeth are heavily damaged, our dentists may suggest other procedures such as dental implants or dental crowns, that may be more suitable for treating heavily decayed or damaged teeth.
Dental veneers are a safe and effective dental treatment, and our experienced and skilled dental staff will offer personalized attention to each patient to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
