Spring is finally here in Northern Virginia and it’s a time of new beginnings and transformation from old to new. If you’re inspired by the season to have a change, then custom veneers, as with most dental restorations, can dramatically reshape and transform your teeth and smile. In certain situations, porcelain veneers are a modern alternative to crowns and other dental restorations and help create a greater confidence in your smile and can help improve self-esteem.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
In cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are thin layers of durable, restorative material that are custom crafted in porcelain by a professional dental laboratory. As part of a consultation with Dr. Bakhtyari, your porcelain veneers are carefully fashioned to meet the tooth color and shape requirements you desire.
5 Reasons To Consider Porcelain Veneers
Of the many reasons for veneers, our patients typically see us for the following:
- To create a beautifully-white, uniform, smile
- Correct visual aspects of crooked teeth
- Cover worn, discolored, or misshapen teeth
- Change the appearance of teeth that are too large or small
- Cover the appearance of uneven spaces.
How Many Visits Will It Take To Complete?
Porcelain veneers typically require a couple of visits to see Dr. Bakhtyari, where teeth impressions are taken and a custom mold is fashioned. Once your desired color and shape are selected, the veneers are custom shaped and bonded onto the surface of the existing teeth. The process is painless and the result is beautiful and natural in appearance.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
As with some dental restorations, porcelain veneers are long-lasting but not permanent. Your porcelain veneers will certainly create a beautiful, enduring smile that you can be proud of for many years to come, but they may require replacement at some future date. Treat your new veneers just as you would your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing and dental visits.
