Many of us go to great lengths to stay healthy and stop, or at least slow down, the aging process. Whether it’s a surgical procedure, hair implants, or just working out at the gym, we do what we can to maintain a youthful appearance. At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, we can help with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit each one to go over the front part of your teeth, giving them a youthful, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.
Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options available.
One thing to remember: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.
