Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Transform Your Smile & Your Self-Image

There are multiple benefits to the porcelain veneers that we provide patients in our Reston, VA dental office. Dental veneers are beautiful, durable, and minimally invasive teeth restorations that can improve your smile. Unlike a dental crown that covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin porcelain shell that only covers the front of the tooth.

Handmade porcelain veneers can close gaps between teeth, make crooked teeth appear straighter, and conceal chips and gaps. We tint veneers to make them look like your natural tooth enamel. They are also extremely stain resistant. Dr. Wayne Myles can place your veneers and help you maintain your new smile for years to come.

Porcelain Veneer Benefits in Reston, Virginia

Address Multiple Concerns with a Single Treatment

Porcelain veneers can correct a variety of independent cosmetic dental issues or many imperfections at once. Their ability to address many concerns naturally lends the treatment a variety of benefits, including:

  • Permanently stained teeth look white and healthy after treatment with porcelain veneers. Patients who have dark teeth or whose teeth are resistant to professional teeth whitening treatments can benefit from veneers.
  • Chipped or broken teeth can appear whole and healthy with veneers.
  • Crooked teeth, uneven teeth, or irregularly shaped teeth look more uniform and symmetrical after veneer placement.
  • Veneers can conceal gaps or uneven spaces between teeth.
  • We can make short or worn teeth larger with veneers.

Many patients opt for porcelain veneers over orthodontic braces because the process of placing veneers takes just a few visits. During your first appointment, Dr. Myles will prep your teeth and take impressions of your mouth. While our lab crafts your custom restorations, you will wear temporary veneers. These will allow you to begin experiencing your improved smile and help us determine if we need to make any adjustments. At your next visit, Dr. Myles will permanently bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth, imparting immediate results.

Longevity & Aesthetics

Your veneers can last ten or twenty years or longer with proper care and maintenance. You can brush and floss them just like your natural teeth. They require only professional check-ups and cleanings to maintain their flawless appearance. We use only the finest porcelain, which reflects and interacts with light just like natural tooth enamel.

Are Dental Veneers Right for Me?

We will be able to determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you at your initial consultation. Many patients with mild to moderate cosmetic concerns can benefit from porcelain veneers. To be an ideal candidate for this treatment, you need to have healthy gums and good overall oral health. If you regularly grind or clench your teeth, Dr. Myles may recommend a night guard to protect your natural teeth and restorations from damage.
