If your smile could use a little help and you are looking for an easy and convenient improvement, talk with our dentists about dental veneers. These are small shells that fit over the front of your teeth. Although some veneers are crafted from resin our team uses veneers made from porcelain since that material closely mimics the appearance and color of a natural tooth, and it is considered the best material for this type of restoration. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of one or all of the teeth in your smile. First, our dentists will remove a small portion of the enamel from the front of the tooth and take an impression of the tooth. That impression will be used to create your new veneer. The new veneer is then cemented in place.
Our dentists can use a veneer to:
- Improve the color of a tooth
- Correct problems with the size or shape of a tooth
- Correct teeth that are crooked but do not need orthodontics
- Cover chips, fractures or wear
In many cases, with the proper care, a veneer can last up to 10 years before it needs to be replaced. At Oakton Family Dentistry, we have placed over 50,000 veneers and you can feel comfortable in the work we will perform.
