Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. They are bonded to the front of your teeth to mask imperfections and help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
At Pure Dental, veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they can be used to correct a variety of issues. They can help if you have teeth that are stained or discolored, chipped, cracked, misaligned, uneven, gapped, or other minor flaws.
Veneers are made from porcelain or resin composite materials and are permanently bonded to the teeth. Porcelain veneers are the most durable and natural-looking option but can be more expensive than composite veneers. Composite veneers are also a good option for many patients because they are less costly and can match the color of your natural teeth.
The Procedure for Dental Veneers
Veneers are an excellent way to improve the appearance of the smile. They can correct stained, chipped, misaligned, gapped, or misshapen teeth. They are also used to fix minor misalignment issues.
Our dentist in Lake Ridge, VA, will first remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth’s surface so the veneer will fit properly and not appear bulky when bonded to the tooth. Next, the dentist will take an impression of the tooth and send it to the laboratory, where the veneer will be custom-made for a perfect fit. When the veneer is ready, the dentist will place it over the prepared tooth and bond it using a special cement. A special light may be used to harden the cement quickly.
The Benefits of Dental Veneers
Veneers in Lake Ridge, VA, can correct many cosmetic issues, including chips, cracks, stains, and gaps between teeth. They can also improve the appearance of misaligned teeth.
Veneers are made from robust and durable materials that look similar to your natural teeth. This means they will blend seamlessly with your smile and not look out of place.
Minimal Tooth Reduction
Unlike some dental procedures that require extensive tooth reduction, veneers usually involve only a minimal amount of enamel removal. This means preserving more of your natural tooth structure while achieving a stunning smile transformation.
Veneers are typically made from porcelain, a material that is highly resistant to staining. This makes veneers an excellent choice for individuals who want a bright and lasting smile, even if they enjoy coffee, tea, or red wine.
