You know what self-confidence is — but what about a little something known as smile confidence? That’s how you feel about your grin on a day to day basis, and, unfortunately, many people have imperfect front teeth which cause them to cover up their smiles or keep their lips closed in photos. These habits can take a real toll over time, but porcelain veneers in Tysons Corner can help you love your smile again!
Why Smile Confidence Matters
Studies show that the smile is one of the first things people notice about a person — and a nice one can leave a lasting impression. In fact, people who have attractive front teeth are more likely to be perceived as successful and friendly by their peers. So, cosmetic dentistry treatments like porcelain may seem like something indulgent or not all-that-necessary at first glance… but investing in your smile can really pay off big in the long run.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that cover up the front side of the teeth that show when you smile. In this way, they do not actually correct any issue — they simply mask it. That’s why veneers are reserved for teeth that are aesthetically imperfect but otherwise healthy.
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth affected by the following issues:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Slight gaps between teeth
- Dental crowding
- Stained or discolored teeth that have not responded to teeth whitening
- Uneven or oddly textured teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- And other cosmetic issues!
Veneers are completed over the course of two visits to your cosmetic dentist’s office. During the first one, your teeth will be prepared to receive the veneers. This requires the removal of a small portion of tooth enamel to ensure that the veneers can fit without looking bulky or making your lips puff out. After the teeth have been prepared, impressions are made and this information is sent off to the lab. You will return to your dentist’s office once the veneers have been created and are ready for placement.

If you are interested in improving the appearance of your front teeth with porcelain veneers, you should know that many adults are eligible for this treatment. If your dental imperfections are mostly cosmetic and you are in good oral and overall health, chances are veneers are a great option for your smile — and, therefore, your smile confidence!
