What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers in Burke, Northern VA are very thin pieces of porcelain that are attached to the outside of your teeth like a thin attractive shell meant to change the appearance of your teeth in some way. Porcelain has a natural ability to reflect light in the same way that natural teeth do. This, coupled with the fact that it can be made into any color you desire, makes it the perfect material for cosmetic procedures like veneers.

Who is a Good Candidate For Veneers?

While almost everyone would make a great candidate for veneers unfortunately, there are some people who might not qualify. While porcelain veneers are perfect for being able to instantly correct slightly misaligned crooked teeth, chipped teeth, and gaps, people with the following conditions might not qualify for veneers:

  • Persons with heavy tooth decay
  • Gums infected with periodontal disease
  • People who heavily clench or grind their jaws during night or day

The reason why people with these conditions might not qualify is very simply. Decay and disease must be handled before the teeth are sealed away behind veneers or the teeth can suffer as well as the lifetime of your veneers. When it comes to clenching, veneers can easily be damaged by misuse such as clenching or grinding.

How are Veneers Applied?

Your dentist will create a digital mockup of what you want your smile to look like. At this time, you can discuss with your dentist how you would like the teeth to appear in terms of size, shape, and color. Then, once a model is approved, your teeth will be molded as well in order to fashion custom veneers that are made to fit perfectly on your teeth.

During the application procedure itself, a thin layer of tooth enamel will be shaved down so that the veneers can sit comfortably and discreetly on your teeth. They are then bonded to the tooth’s surface. Your new veneers can last you upwards of 10 years.
