Porcelain Veneers Overview
If your teeth are uneven, chipped, too short and/or yellowed, you may be surprised to hear that a single cosmetic service can correct any or all of these issues. When you visit us at L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts in Washington, DC, our talented dentists can fit you with a set of porcelain veneers that will mask imperfections and even give you a healthier, brighter smile.
As you may already know, dental veneers are very thin porcelain shells that are designed to conform to the fronts of your teeth. With just some local anesthesia to prevent any pain, your dentist will scrape the front surfaces of your teeth so that your veneers can be properly cemented in place. Then your custom-made veneers will be placed and you will walk out of the office with a whole new smile.
The benefits of porcelain veneers are extensive. For example, if your teeth are yellowed and misaligned, you may think that you need to have them whitened and that you need to go through the process of getting braces or Invisalign trays. However, you may just need to be fitted for porcelain veneers, which will take care of both problems at once.
Another benefit of porcelain veneers is their versatility. You can have veneers made to close gaps between your teeth for a more uniform and pleasing smile. You can also have them made a little bit longer than your natural teeth to balance out a gummy smile.
When you visit us at L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts in Washington, DC, you can expect the whole process to take about two visits. During the first visit, your teeth will be prepared for your veneers, and an impression will be taken. Then, when you come in for your next visit, we will fit your veneers to your teeth and you will leave with the gorgeous smile that you have been dreaming of.
