Custom Dental Veneers Placed by Our Cosmetic Dentistry in Falls Church
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the front surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. They are typically made from porcelain or resin composite materials and are designed to match the color and shape of the patient's natural teeth. Dive deep into the benefits and how it's completed at our cosmetic dentistry in Falls Church below.
One of the primary benefits of dental veneers is that they can help to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, or misshapen. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth or to make teeth appear longer or more symmetrical.
The process of getting dental veneers typically involves two or three appointments with our team. During the first appointment, Dr. Peyser will prepare the tooth by removing a small amount of enamel to make room for the veneer. An impression of the tooth will then be taken and sent to a dental laboratory where the veneer will be fabricated.
While the veneer is being made, you may be fitted with a temporary veneer to protect the tooth and to maintain the desired appearance. Once the permanent veneer is ready, the temporary veneer is removed and the permanent veneer is cemented into place.
Dental veneers require regular brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. They can also last for many years with proper care and maintenance. However, it is important to note that veneers may need to be replaced over time, especially if they become chipped or cracked. That's why it's important to maintain regular visits to Peyser Dentistry.
Overall, dental veneers are a popular and effective option for patients who are looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. They can help to correct a variety of cosmetic issues, while also providing a natural-looking and durable solution.
