The Porcelain Veneers Process

Before you can receive veneers, you’ll need to visit us for a cosmetic consultation. Dr. Osseiran or Dr. Mazhari will make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough to support veneers. Your dentist will also discuss your smile goals with you and answer all of your questions about any cosmetic treatment you’re considering.

If you decide to receive porcelain veneers, it’s wise to get your teeth whitened first. Porcelain your veneers will be shade-matched to the surrounding teeth. Because porcelain doesn’t respond to whitening treatments, before your veneers are installed is the best time to brighten your smile.

After any preliminary work is finished, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing just a sliver of enamel for them; this step is to make sure your veneers work well with your natural smile line. Then, our team will take some images and impressions of your teeth, which will serve as the basis for designing your custom veneers.

You’ll wear temporary veneers until your permanent ones are ready. Then, you’ll return to our office so your dentist can verify that they are a perfect fit for you before they’re permanently attached to your teeth.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution to correct several cosmetic issues at once to give you the smile of your dreams. Since porcelain allows the veneers to be thinner, you will keep more of your tooth’s structure intact; however, you still need to permanently alter your teeth. This can be a big commitment, so we are sure you have plenty of questions. We take the time to address your concerns to ensure they are right for you. While you wait for your initial consultation for porcelain veneers in Tysons Corner & Potomac, here are the answers to a few of the top questions about them to help you make the best choice for your smile.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Although the veneers are thin, they are durable. You will need to replace your veneers about every 10 years, but it is not uncommon for them to last for much longer. There are several things you can do to protect your smile’s longevity:

Do I need to get veneers on all my teeth?

No, you do not need to get veneers on all your teeth. You can choose a single veneer if you have one imperfect tooth, like one that is chipped or stained. The veneer is customized to match the appearance of your natural teeth to blend in seamlessly when you smile. Although you can only treat one tooth, most patients choose veneers for all their teeth that are visible when they smile. This creates a balanced look as the color, size, shape, and proportion of your teeth are transformed.

What happens if a veneer breaks or falls off?

While veneers are durable, they can break or fall off. There is no need to worry. Your cosmetic dentist in Tysons Corner & Potomac can easily replace it to restore a flawless smile.

Does dental insurance cover the cost?

Veneers are considered an elective procedure. It is rare for dental insurance to cover a cosmetic treatment, like veneers. For your insurance to pay for a portion of an elective treatment, your dentist must deem it also necessary to your oral health. If your insurance will not pay for the procedure, you still have options to keep your new smile affordable. Our office accepts a variety of payment forms, including third-party financing with CareCredit. We provide you with a custom estimate and discuss how you can pay for your veneers during your initial consultation.
