When there are multiple problems with your teeth, it can feel overwhelming to think of all the different treatments it will take to solve your problems. Fortunately, there is a cosmetic dentistry solution that can solve most of your problems with one simple treatment: porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers at Cardinal Park Family Dental Care are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are bonded over the front of your teeth to give your teeth a new color and shape. Oftentimes, porcelain veneers can give you the perfect smile. Just look at most celebrities with their perfect smiles. Odds are, they are achieved with dental veneers. Find out if porcelain veneers in Leesburg are the right solution for you.
Stained and Yellow Teeth
One of the first and most common problems that porcelain veneers can address are stained or yellow teeth. Over time, it’s normal for your teeth to fade from their bright white hue to a yellow shade. It’s also common for the food and drinks you consume, certain medications and even smoking to discolor your teeth. Teeth whitening might provide you with whiter teeth, but this is a procedure that needs to be repeated every year or so for your teeth to maintain their new white hue. This can be time consuming and add up to a lot of money in the long run.
If you would prefer a more long-term method for white teeth, porcelain veneers in Leesburg might be a better option. We can color your veneers to any shade of white that you desire. Once they are bonded to your teeth, your smile will never fade. This is because porcelain veneers are not porous, therefore unable to be stained. You can expect your white teeth to look perfect for the next ten years before they need to be replaced. If you are worried that your veneers will make your teeth look fake, don’t worry. Our cosmetic dentist in Leesburg can help you pick the perfect color for your smile.
Usually, if you have crooked teeth you need to schedule an appointment with an orthodontist for metal braces or clear aligners. After that, you have to live with the discomfort of braces for the next year or two while your teeth move into their new position. If you don’t want to deal with the time, discomfort and price of braces, you can actually achieve straighter teeth with porcelain veneers. As long as your teeth are not severely crooked, our cosmetic dentist can help your teeth appear to be straighter with a simple veneer. Skip the orthodontic treatment visit us for a dental veneers consultation instead.
How does it work? Our dentist will create a veneer shape that is placed over your crooked tooth. The veneer will be straight and completely cover the crooked tooth underneath. The best part is that your teeth will look straight after just two appointments with our dentist.
In addition to covering crooked teeth, porcelain veneers can also be used to cover gaps in your teeth. If you are unsure if you want porcelain veneers to cover your gapped teeth, opt for a dental bonding treatment to test it out. Dental bonding can fill in your gaps, however, it typically only lasts for a year or two before it needs to be replaced. Porcelain veneers can fill in your gapped smile for as long as the veneers last. Skip the orthodontic treatment and opt for veneers instead.
A gummy smile is when a patient smiles and their gums show a lot. This is a problem that can be solved with painful gum contouring or with a simple porcelain veneers treatment. Our dentist can give you porcelain veneers that help your gums look shorter by giving you longer teeth. Veneers don’t require a painful procedure a long recovery period for your new smile to shine through. The possibilities with dental veneers are endless.
Cracked or Broken Teeth
When you crack or break a tooth, this not only affects your smile but it can actually put your teeth in harm’s way. Porcelain veneers can actually be used to both protect your teeth as well as improve their aesthetics. When you have a cracked or broken tooth, our dentist can create a veneer to be placed over the damaged tooth. This protects your tooth from future damage and helps it look great. A veneer is must cheaper than a full dental crown and looks just as good.
It’s common for patients to have teeth that are uneven in shape and symmetry. Symmetry on the face is actually known to make people appear to be more beautiful. Therefore, if your smile is symmetrical, you will look and feel more beautiful. If your teeth are uneven, our dentist can create veneers for your front teeth to help your entire teeth match in color as well as shape. As a result, you will have a more symmetrical smile to help you feel more confident and beautiful.
The last dental problem porcelain veneers can address is chipped teeth. Chipped teeth can occur when you bite into something you shouldn’t or from taking a fall and hitting your tooth on something. Chips are commonly repaired with dental bonding but dental bonding usually only lasts a year or two before it needs to be replaced. This can be annoying to do all the time. If you want a long-term solution for your chipped tooth, porcelain veneers can last up to 10 years before they need to be replaced.
