Patients who want to repair damaged tooth enamel or make minor corrections to tooth alignment often choose veneers. Veneers can be easily applied to your teeth to mask imperfections and give you a more confident smile.
Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-made to fit on the front surface your teeth. They provide an attractive and natural look. They can be used to mask chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or unusually spaced teeth.
At Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S. and Associates, we offer three kinds of veneers:
Traditional veneers are made of porcelain and permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain is chosen due to its adaptability and translucent color. You’ll maintain a natural appearance that matches your gum tissue and effectively resists staining, ensuring the brighter, long-lasting smile you always wanted.
Porcelain veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers which replace your original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. Your dentist will remove a tiny amount of the original tooth enamel. This creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit in your mouth and restore your natural tooth’s function while creating an even better appearance than the original offered.
Composite veneers are made from composite resin and are an affordable option that can correct gaps, broken, poorly-shaped, crooked, broken or stained teeth. They are convenient because they can be placed in a single visit and are easy to repair.
If you have cosmetic imperfections that you would like to correct, dental veneers may be the perfect solution. Contact Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S. and Associates today at (703) 214-3312 to schedule an appointment for dental veneers in Centreville, Virginia.
