If your teeth aren’t as straight or as white as you’d like, you might be wondering what your options are for creating a smile you love to show off. Perhaps you’ve thought about braces to straighten your teeth, but you are not up to the time commitment of orthodontics. Perhaps you’ve thought about cosmetic dentistry in Vienna VA, but you aren’t sure what options might work for you.
There is one cosmetic dentistry procedure that can not only straighten your teeth but which can make them bright and white as well: porcelain veneers. Chances are, your favorite Hollywood celebrity achieved a perfect smile through porcelain veneers.
Let’s talk about the benefits of porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, translucent covers for your teeth. The cover up problems such as crooked teeth and stained or discolored teeth. They look completely natural and are actually stronger and more resilient than your natural teeth alone.
What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Patients who opt for porcelain veneers will achieve their results very quickly—usually in as few as a couple of appointments to the dentist.
Unlike your natural teeth, veneers are resistant to staining from foods and beverages—and even from smoking.
Veneers can cover flaws in your mouth such as small spaces and gaps between teeth, as well as teeth that are so stained that even teeth whitening cannot brighten them.
There is just a small amount of tooth prep that is done before the veneers are permanently applied, so less of your natural tooth structure is compromised in order to place the veneers. (A word of caution about this is that because veneers are permanent, there is no reversing the process.)
