Making sure your teeth are even and white can enhance your smile and your confidence in social situations. Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for discolored or chipped teeth. These dental solutions fit over your own natural teeth to create the appearance of white, even teeth. At Dental One Associates of Woodbridge, we specialize in providing the most practical options for porcelain veneers in Woodbridge. Our dental team will work with you to determine the most efficient and appropriate options for restoring the beauty of your smile.
What Is a Porcelain Veneer?
Veneers are made of thin layers of dental porcelain that looks and works like regular tooth enamel. They are attached to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive and are ideally suited to correcting a number of different issues. These cosmetic dental applications can help you to feel much more confident when meeting new people or in other social and professional situations.
Because veneers cover your teeth, they can be used to correct teeth discolored by foods, beverages and medications. By investing in these dental options, you can enjoy the whitest and brightest teeth for many years into the future.
Slight misalignments of your teeth can have a big impact on your appearance and your overall confidence in your smile. Veneers are often used to correct these issues and to provide you with the even and attractive smile you need to make the best impression on those you meet.
Chipped or Worn-down Teeth
Minor chips or wearing down of tooth enamel can affect your appearance and reduce the impact of your smile. Our dentists will work with you to determine the most appropriate and practical options for restoring the beauty of your teeth and helping you to have the most brilliant smile possible.
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Before veneers can be fabricated, our dentists will make dental impressions or molds that will ensure that these dental appliances fit perfectly over your natural teeth. In some cases, your teeth may need to be shaped or adjusted to make sure that your veneers fit as well as possible. Generally, the procedure is painless and can be completed in one appointment, but contact our office for more information.
How Do Veneers Differ from Crowns?
Porcelain crowns are designed to cover your entire tooth from the gums up or down, and provide more support to the tooth. Crowns are intended to cover teeth affected by decay or more severe trauma. Veneers only cover the visible front surface of your teeth. The dental team at Dental One Associates of Woodbridge will work with you to determine the best and most practical options for your teeth and your budget.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
In most cases, dental plans will not pay for veneers or other cosmetic solutions. Some of the associated costs of your treatment may be covered, however. We will bill as much of your veneer costs as possible to your dental insurance to lower the amount you pay out of pocket. Dental One Associates of Woodbridge will work with you to help you manage porcelain veneers cost issues. We offer payment options that will allow you to space out your payments over time. Our team will work to promote the best possible solutions for your teeth and your budget to help you look and feel your very best.
How Long Will My Veneers Last?
With proper care, your veneers could last for several decades. These dental appliances represent a solid investment in your appearance now and into the future. If your veneers become worn or damaged, they can usually be replaced quickly to ensure that you enjoy the most beautiful smile possible.
What Are Lumineers®?
Lumineers® are brand-name veneers that are significantly thinner and lighter than many other types of veneers. This can allow your veneers porcelain to fit more snugly. Lumineers are translucent, which ensures that your porcelain teeth look as natural as possible for many years to come.
How Do I Care for My Porcelain Veneers?
The most important thing to remember about caring for your veneers is to avoid putting stress on these dental appliances. Grinding or clenching your teeth can cause your veneers to become dislodged or damaged. Eating very hard or sticky foods could also cause problems for patients with veneers. By avoiding these activities and brushing your teeth normally, you can enjoy the most beautiful teeth and the brightest smile. The dentists at Dental One Associates of Woodbridge will provide you detailed instructions on caring for your teeth
