At L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts, Dr Norkiewicz offers patients a diversity of dental solutions, including porcelain veneers. If you are unfamiliar with them, or you have visited us as your dentist in Washington DC and discovered they are a possible solution for your needs, we encourage you to read these porcelain veneers FAQs and learn more about these amazing cosmetic solutions.
What are porcelain veneers?
Also called, dental veneers, they are paper-thin shells of strong porcelain that can be used just like your natural teeth, but which provide a cosmetic dentistry solution to many concerns. Custom made to your mouth and facial dimensions, they are capable of providing a long list of solutions.
Why would I use porcelain veneers?
Our patients have used them for deeply stained teeth that cannot be whitened, for teeth that are cracked or chipped, for teeth that are of uneven size or length, for “gummy smiles“, for teeth that are gapped or slightly crooked, and for teeth that are worn unevenly.

How long does it take for porcelain veneers to be completed?
When you want porcelain veneers in Washington DC, our office can complete the process in just two short visits. During the first visit, we make impressions of your mouth and prepare your teeth for the veneers. We place temporary veneers and when the lab returns your perfectly designed, custom set of veneers, we bond them to your teeth and you have your new smile!
Can I use veneers for a smile makeover?
That is an important point in our porcelain veneers FAQs, because many patients have been able to use a simple whitening treatment and some veneers to completely makeover their smile, improving its looks and even its function.
Veneers can offer more than cosmetic benefits?
This is another key point for any porcelain veneers FAQs, and many patients do not realize that veneers can also help to prevent further damage to some teeth. For example, if you have cracked a tooth, it is very vulnerable. However, a veneer is bonded to it, offering protection and stabilizing it. This prevents any further harm or damage.
