Porcelain Veneers in Northern Virginia, VA

Be proud of your smile with porcelain veneers in Northern Virginia.

Don’t let gaps, stains or other imperfections in your teeth make you feel less like smiling. A Dental Associates dentist in Northern Virginia can recommend veneers to correct the problem.

Veneers make a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your teeth. Also, since they are stain-resistant, they typically last for years before requiring replacement. Your Dental Associates dentist is well qualified to determine which type of veneer is best for your needs.

Composite veneers.

Composite veneers, made from composite resin, are enamel bonded right onto your teeth, usually in just one visit. They are more affordable than porcelain veneers, but tend to last only about five to seven years.

Porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover your natural teeth to hide defects like gaps or stains. Since they are custom-made, they usually require more time at the dentist office for placement. They are also more expensive than composite veneers. This additional upfront time can pay off, however, since porcelain veneers generally last up to 10 years or longer.

What to expect with porcelain veneers.

No matter how severely damaged your teeth are, porcelain veneers can make a dramatic difference. They are basically thin shells that cover the surface of damaged or stained teeth to correct minor imperfections such as gaps, cracks, chips or misalignment. They not only improve the look of your smile, they also protect the damaged teeth underneath. In general, porcelain veneers are an affordable solution for correcting minor problems and defects.

How veneers are made.

Since porcelain veneers are custom made to match your natural teeth, your Dental Associates dentist will need to make a model of your teeth for the lab technician. This will be used to custom-design your veneers. Your dentist will then attach your new custom veneers onto your natural teeth to give you a brighter, more perfect smile. To keep your veneers bright, avoid stain causers such as coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco.
