Veneers offer a simple way to conceal imperfections that affect your teeth and are a good choice for most people. Alexandria, VA, dentists Dr. Paul Gibberman, Dr. Lauren Gibberman, and Dr. Maria Hodas offer veneers at Gibberman Dental.
Are you unhappy with your smile?
Veneers are an excellent option if chips, cracks, discolorations or other cosmetic issues mar your smile. The thin porcelain shells are custom-made to fit the fronts of your teeth and attached with dental cement in your Alexandria dentist's office.
Veneers are often used to hide imperfections, make discolored teeth white, close slight gaps between teeth or change the shape or length of teeth.
Are your teeth and gums in good condition?
Your dentist may recommend treatments to address tooth or gum issues before you receive veneers.
Do you grind your teeth?
Grinding or clenching your teeth at night may chip, loosen or break your veneers. Fortunately, veneers may still an option for you if you begin wearing a nightguard. The custom-made guard fits over your teeth while you sleep and prevents them from coming in contact with each other.
Is your smile dull?
Teeth whitening can only lighten your teeth by a few shades, but when you choose veneers to brighten your smile you control the level of whiteness by selecting the shade you prefer.
Are you a regular flosser and brusher?
You need healthy teeth to support your veneers. Good oral hygiene protects your teeth and gums and reduces your cavity risk, which helps you maintain your new smile. Although caring for your veneers won't require any changes to your usual oral hygiene routine, you will need to use non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid scratching your porcelain veneers.
