Porcelain Veneers

Dentist in Virginia Beach

Porcelain veneers are cosmetic solutions that may be recommended for those who are interested in restoring the color and appearance of their teeth. They are used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and flexibility that is comparable to natural tooth enamel.

Porcelain veneers can be used to:

• Re-shape teeth
• Improve the look of your teeth due to stains
• Fix teeth that are chipped, fractured, crooked or broken
• Close gaps between teeth

Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth. The foundation of your natural teeth must be strong and healthy in order to be a candidate. Results from veneers can be very drastic, and instantly improve the appearance of your smile. Since veneers are individually created for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, veneers can also resist stains from coffee, tea and cigarette smoke.

Procedure
Veneer preparation may involve the removal of a small amount of tooth structure. An impression is taken and sent to the lab to fabricate the custom veneers. During this time, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth. Temporary veneers are very fragile and need to be treated gently during eating and cleaning.

Once your permanent veneers arrive, they are bonded to your teeth. Avoid chewing excessively hard foods with your veneers.

Porcelain veneers are very durable and can last for years when cared for properly. Continue brushing, flossing and keeping up with regular professional cleanings to add to the longevity of your dental veneers.
