We are open - safety is our top priority!

Porcelain veneers work best on otherwise healthy teeth in need of minor cosmetic corrections. If you’re interested in receiving dental veneers, contact one of our dentists in Woodbridge.
What Can You Tell Me About Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are utilized to improve the aesthetics of your smile. They are made out of thin layers of porcelain that serve the same function as tooth enamel. Veneers adhere to the front surface of the tooth. Some of the issues that dental veneers address include:
- Size and shape: Veneers can cover up chips or cracks in the teeth as well as address issues like shortened teeth. Other issues that porcelain veneers are utilized for include teeth that look too square, large, small, or round.
- Tooth color: While professional tooth whitening is an excellent way to achieve the bright smile you’ve longed for, there are some instances where it may not work to effectively brighten your teeth. In these cases, you and your dentist may choose to use porcelain veneers.
- Alignment and spacing: Gaps in your teeth can be unsightly and cause you to feel uncomfortable with your smile. Veneers can help you to address this common issue without having to get braces.
No matter what cosmetic dental issue you wish to address with your veneers, one of our dentists in Woodbridge can help you in discovering the right veneer option for your needs.
Can You Tell Me What Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Are you curious about what porcelain veneers cost? Your bill will be determined by a variety of factors that include the current condition of your teeth, the type of veneers you choose, and your dental insurance coverage.
Can You Tell Me How Veneers and Crowns Are Different?
While porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are both permanent options for improving the teeth, there are some differences between them. A porcelain crown covers the entire tooth in a cap-like manner. A dental veneer only covers the front surface of the tooth.
Crowns are generally recommended in instances where a tooth is severely damaged due to decay, injury, or age. They are a stronger and sturdier option, making them ideal for correcting issues to the teeth that are located in the back of your mouth.
How Will My Teeth Be Prepared for a Porcelain Veneer?
Before you undergo your porcelain veneers procedure, your dentist will remove a small portion of the tooth’s enamel. Molds of your teeth will then be made to ensure that your veneers fit your tooth or teeth perfectly.
How Do I Care for Veneers Porcelain?
You will care for your dental veneers in the same way as you care for your natural teeth.
What Is the Lifespan of a Porcelain Veneer?
If you brush and floss your teeth and porcelain veneers frequently, you can expect them to last for decades.
Should I Get Lumineers®?
