Sometimes you have a healthy smile but are still not happy with its appearance. This is understandable, as everyone is their own worst critic, and people have been bombarded with centuries about what the ideal smile is supposed to be.
At The Dental Co. of Leesburg, we specialize in cosmetic dentistry that focuses on changing the appearance of the smile while keeping the teeth healthy and strong. If you are dissatisfied with your smile and would like something new, contact us today about the possibility of wearing dental veneers.
Veneers are thin shells for the teeth that can be made of porcelain, enamel, or tooth-colored composite resin. They are designed to make a new surface for the teeth and can change the shape, color, and evenness of your current smile. Most individuals who choose to wear veneers customize them to hide certain elements of their teeth they dislike, such as permanent discoloration, minor chips and cracks, and unevenness.
Veneers are intended to be worn by adults because of how long-lasting the structures are. Patients need to have permanent teeth and should not have any major health concerns or alignment issues. For example, someone who is currently battling periodontal disease should not wear veneers. Instead, our trained staff can create a customized treatment plan to improve oral health and wellness before the veneers are crafted through our stellar dental lab.
Likewise, patients who have severe misalignments like bad overbites and underbites will not be able to wear veneers until they have sought orthodontic treatment. Unfortunately, the shields will not fit properly.
Veneers can last for twenty years when cared for properly. However, they can be removed at any point if the patient finds them uncomfortable or decides to take them off.
If you are interested in changing your smile through dental veneers, then give us a call at The Dental Co. of Leesburg today. We can schedule your initial appointment and consultation at your convenience and have you wearing veneers in as little as two weeks.
