What Can Veneers Do For Mt. Vernon Smiles?

Hello, and welcome to our Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients in the Mt. Vernon area have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from tooth-colored substances. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Veneers are designed to cover the front part of the teeth and are most commonly employed to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, or decayed, or that are crooked.

If you visit your Alexandria or Mt. Vernon dentist for veneers, they will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

We hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. Along with other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as gum contouring, smile makeovers, and teeth whitening, the smile that you desire is really just a few dental visits away!
