Hi! Welcome to the Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry dental blog where we take the time to answer some of the questions our patients are curious about. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth
When you get veneers, your dentist will first make a model of your teeth. Then, a dental technician uses the model to create the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed. In such cases, the procedure is irreversible.
If you are in the Alexandria area and are looking for a family, general or cosmetic dentist, give Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry a call. Drs. Geren & Mady have been practicing advanced dentistry in Alexandria, Virginia since 1983. The art and science of cosmetic dentistry is our passion.
Please call 703-360-5881 and a member of our continuing education staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, invisible braces, sedation dentistry, pediatric dentistry, general dental care, or smile makeovers.
