Dental Veneers in Dumfries, VA

When you are looking for an affordable way to transform your smile, consider dental veneers in Dumfries, VA, from Dumfries Dental Arts. Porcelain veneers offer a cost-effective means to camouflage imperfections. Ask our cosmetic dentist if veneers are right for you and your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers Look Like Your Natural Teeth

Veneer teeth are your natural teeth covered with a very fine layer of nearly translucent porcelain. Porcelain is the preferred material as this substance is strong and durable and closely resembles the look of your natural teeth. Dental veneers serve as a clever and effective method for covering flaws in your smile.

Veneer Teeth Cover Imperfections

Veneers work to conceal a multitude of problems with the appearance of your teeth. By applying the veneer, the flaw is hidden and your smile is enhanced greatly. Our dentist uses porcelain veneers for teeth that are:

• Chipped
• Misaligned
• Broken
• Spaced Far Apart
• Worn Down
• Uneven
• Misshapen

Applying Dental Veneers

The procedure for placing veneers is quick and simple. Our dentist starts by taking a tiny bit of the enamel off the front of your teeth. This is equal to the width of your veneer. Then, it is time for him to make an impression of your tooth, which goes to a dental lab to craft your new veneer.

When the veneer comes back from the lab, our dentist checks the fit and color of the veneer by placing it on your tooth. He trims where necessary and matches the color to your natural teeth with the aid of dental cement.

Our dentist cleans, polishes, and etches your tooth, roughing it up a bit to bond more securely to the veneer. He puts cement on the veneer and places it in just the right spot on your tooth. To activate the chemicals to cure the veneer, he shines a special light on your tooth. Any extra cement wiped off and your veneer is checked one more time for fit and appearance. Now, it is time to show off your new and improved smile.

Dental Inlays & Onlays

Your tooth may need a repair that is not an extensive as that required for a filling or a crown. In that case, dental inlays or onlays may be just what the dentist orders. Inlays are used as filling between the cusps on the tooth’s surface, while dental onlays cover one or more of the cusps. Our dentist lets you know when this type of filling is best for your teeth.
