When you smile, do you often find yourself hiding your teeth? If you suffer from cosmetic flaws, it is easy to feel insecure about your appearance. Although you may feel alone, it is estimated that one-third of adults do not like how their teeth look. What if you could revamp your confidence with a minimally invasive solution? Now you can with porcelain veneers in Tysons Corner. At Just for Your Smile, Dr. Osseiran will drastically improve how your teeth look with an option that looks natural.
Porcelain veneers have quickly become one of the most preferred cosmetic procedures because they allow you to completely transform the appearance of your teeth using a minimally invasive treatment. By attaching custom-made shells to the front surfaces of your teeth, you instantly hide a variety of imperfections, such as stubborn tooth discoloration that will not respond to traditional whitening treatments.
Overall, veneers improve the size, shape, and proportion of your teeth. This allows them to be the perfect option for covering chips, cracks, or teeth that have an abnormal shape. In some cases, they can even be used as an alternative to orthodontics by closing gaps and making your teeth appear straighter.
Now, veneers are made from porcelain, which allows them to be thinner. As a result, less of your tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process, so it is minimally invasive. Not to mention, porcelain closely mimics the appearance of enamel to create natural-looking results. It is also stain-resistant, so your new smile will stay bright.
After ensuring that you are a candidate for the procedure, a customized treatment plan will be created. During the first phase, your teeth will be cleaned, and a small amount of enamel will be removed. This is necessary to ensure that they will sit flush on your teeth. Then, digital impressions are taken, which are needed to create your veneers to meet your exact specifications.
A dental lab will ensure that they match your exact size, shape, and color needs. This can take a couple of weeks, so Dr. Osseiran will attach temporary ones in the meantime. When your final ones are ready, you will return to our office and they will be bonded in place.
With the right aftercare, your new smile can last for an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced. Caring for them is simple using nonabrasive dental products when brushing and flossing your teeth. Although they are strong and durable, they can break. To protect them from chips or cracks, it is best not to chew on inedible objects or use your teeth as tools to open packages. Do not forget to visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
