How Dental Veneers Could Change Your Smile

Dental veneers are unique in the field of cosmetic dentistry. They can give you results that are similar to other cosmetic services. This makes veneers one of the most versatile services available in modern dentistry.

Veneers can:

➤ Whiten your smile

➤ Make your teeth look straight

➤ Close gaps between your teeth

➤ Repair chipped and worn down teeth

Look at your smile in the mirror. Are your teeth as white or as straight as you would like? Do you have gaps you would like to close? Do any of your teeth look chipped or worn down?

If you would like to make any of those changes, dental veneers and our team at the Moss dental office may be just what you need. Call (540) 369-4926 to learn more.


How To Get Dental Veneers

Start by scheduling a consultation with one of our dentists. They will discuss your goals and examine your teeth.

They can tell you if your teeth are healthy enough to support veneers. They may even recommend a different cosmetic service. Regardless, they will work to help you create a smile that you want to see when you look at yourself in the mirror.

✦ Assuming you are a good candidate for veneers (and many people are), you will move to the preparation stage.

Dental veneers are a kind of shell about as thick as your fingernails. That may not seem like much, but adding that to your teeth could affect your profile.

To keep you looking as much like yourself as possible, we may need to remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. Then, we will make impressions of your teeth.

Those impressions will be sent to a dental lab to design dental veneers that are custom-fitted for your teeth.

✦ It takes a few weeks for veneers to be crafted. When they are ready, you will return to our office to have them bonded to your teeth.

We will check the fit of the veneers before we affix them to your teeth. When we are sure everything is correct, we will clean, polish, and etch your teeth. This will allow the veneers to bond more securely to your teeth.

A special light will speed up the bonding process so you can feel confident that your veneers will stay in place when you leave.

✦ The last step is a follow-up appointment. We don’t anticipate any issues once your veneers are in place. In the off chance there is a problem, we want to fix it as quickly as possible.

With proper care and maintenance, your dental veneers can last for decades.


How Dental Veneers Compare With Other Services

Dental veneers can give you similar results as other cosmetic services. The main difference is that veneers are used to conceal those issues.

For example, you could receive professional teeth whitening to remove stains from your teeth. Whitening products have bleaching agents to lift the stains from your teeth. Veneers are used to cover those teeth instead.

Someone with gaps between their teeth, crowded teeth, or crooked teeth may consider orthodontic treatment to move their teeth. This can take months or years to complete, whereas you can get veneers in a matter of a few weeks.

Dental bonding is done by applying a composite resin to teeth. The can restore the shape of a chipped or worn down tooth. Veneers can be used to fix multiple teeth at the same time.

And unlike the other services mentioned above, it’s possible to address all those issues simultaneously with a set of custom-fitted dental veneers.


Are Dental Veneers Right For You?

That is a decision you will have to make for yourself. However, our dentists will be happy to examine your teeth and discuss the pros and cons of dental veneers compared to other cosmetic options. We want you to be happy with your smile.
