What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Do you have discolored, worn, or crooked teeth? Dental veneers are a cosmetic solution that can be used to treat one or more teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Justin Deckard at DC Precision Dentistry uses dental veneers that are crafted from porcelain because they reflect light and offer a more natural restoration for patients. Porcelain veneers are adhered to the front of teeth to improve their appearance.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can be used to address:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Tooth gaps
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large

Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent restoration. Dental bonding is also another option for patients who want to fix cosmetic concerns but don’t want to commit to porcelain veneers. Call DC Precision Dentistry at (202) 851-7554 if you are considering tooth bonding or porcelain veneers. Our experts will help you to find a solution that works best for your specific needs.

Treatment with Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Deckard will complete a comprehensive dental exam before treatment, assessing the patient’s bite and teeth placement. He may also use CEREC technology to design the custom porcelain veneers to the desired size and shape. To prepare teeth for treatment, Dr. Deckard will remove a small portion of tooth enamel. He will then take 3-D images of the teeth that are receiving the veneers using CAD-CAM technology. These images will be used to fabricate the final restoration.

Once the porcelain veneers are complete, Dr. Deckard will ensure their fit before adhering them on to the patient’s teeth. The porcelain veneers are then polished for a natural shine. Patients should continue to brush and floss their teeth twice a day as well as schedule regular dental appointments to keep their veneers looking white and bright.
