What exactly are Veneers?
Veneers can be used to enhance and transform your existing smile. These thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain are attached to the front of your teeth. The veneers cover issues like stains, discoloration, chips and cracks that would otherwise be impossible or expensive to fix. Our goal here at Family Dental of Fairfax City is to provide you with veneers that are lasting and natural-looking.
Why might you want or need Veneers?
You might want veneers because you’re looking for a quick and easy way to transform your entire smile. Unlike other procedures that take months to complete, veneers can be done quickly and change your appearance for the better. You may want veneers because you are attending a special event like a reunion or wedding and want a smile that will improve your appearance and confidence. We can help you achieve this goal by offering quality veneers that are custom made to your smile.
What makes you a viable candidate for Veneers?
Prior to having veneers made for you, you’ll come in and have a consultation with Dr. Dary. We will determine if veneers are suitable for you and will get to work immediately in fitting your smile with them. Most of our patients who want veneers are able to have them made and placed. You can expect your new veneers to last for about 10 years with proper dental hygiene and care.
What can be expected when having Veneers placed?
The procedure for veneers requires little to no anesthetic. We will buff out the front of your teeth to improve the veneers’ adhesion as well as to prevent the veneers from looking bulky. Impressions are taken just of the front teeth and used to create the new veneers. Once the veneers have been professionally made, they will be attached to your teeth and filed down for a more even and comfortable fit. You will need to replace your veneers after 10 years and will find them to be quite durable and withstanding.
