Dental Veneers Reston VA
Have you ever wished you could have teeth like your favorite movie star? You don’t have to dream about it. A Hollywood smile is possible, with help from cosmetic dentistry. One popular option is dental veneers.
Dental veneers can turn unattractive teeth into a gorgeous smile everyone will be envious of. These wafer-thin shells are bonded onto the fronts of teeth to cover up imperfections such as gaps and discoloration. They can also change the size and appearance of irregularly shaped teeth. In addition, veneers can fix teeth that are uneven or misaligned. Dental veneers also work well for teeth that are chipped, broken or worn down. There are two types of dental veneers: resin composite or porcelain. Porcelain veneers are often preferred because they look more like natural teeth and are more stain-resistant.

Procedure for Dental Veneers
You can get dental veneers for one or more teeth. The process involves three visits. The first step involves treatment planning. This involves discussing your goals with your dentist. What look are you trying to achieve? The dentist will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth to determine if veneers are right for you.
If veneers are recommended, the next step is preparation. Some enamel – about ½ millimeter – will be removed from the tooth. This is so the veneer can be placed onto the tooth’s surface. A local anesthetic will be used to numb the area.
The dentist will create a model or impression of the tooth. This model is sent to a lab, which will then create the veneer for your tooth. This process will take 2-4 weeks.
When the veneer is ready, the dentist will place it onto the tooth to examine its color and fit. The veneer can be trimmed and the color can be changed as needed. The tooth will then be cleaned and polished. When the tooth and veneer are ready, the veneer will be cemented onto the tooth. A special light will be used on the tooth to allow the cement to harden quickly.
The dentist will then remove any excess cement, assess your bite and make any final adjustments. You will then return in a few weeks to see hoe your veneer fits.
