If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, you are not alone. It is estimated, one-third of adults do not like their smiles. Now, you can get the beautiful smile you have always wanted with porcelain veneers in Fairfax. MJM Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers the minimally invasive procedure to drastically enhance the appearance of your teeth. You will hide cosmetic flaws to achieve radiant teeth for the confident smile you have always wanted.
Porcelain veneers are thin false fronts that are bonded to the front side of the teeth to hide cosmetic flaws. They are extremely versatile, allowing them to be used to correct several imperfections of the teeth. If you have cracked, chipped, or abnormally shaped teeth, the veneers will give your smile a shapelier, proportionate appearance. This offers the perfect option for those who have shorter than average teeth.
In addition, veneers can often be used as an alternative for orthodontic treatment. They can be used to make the teeth appear straighter by hiding minor alignment issues. With porcelain very closely mimicking the appearance of enamel, you gain a bright, white smile that looks natural while lasting for years.
Traditional dental veneers require a large amount of enamel to be removed during the bonding process. Not with porcelain veneers. The veneers are much thinner than traditional options. As a result, less enamel is removed during the bonding process to protect the integrity of your teeth. In addition, this provides a more comfortable and less invasive procedure than that required for veneers made from other materials.
If you are ready to transform your smile, you need to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Fairfax. Dr. Malcolm Murray will perform a comprehensive examination to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure. Then, he will create a customized treatment plan to enhance the beauty of your teeth.
After cleaning your teeth, they are prepared by removing a small amount of enamel. This is necessary to ensure the veneers sit flush on your teeth while creating a secure bond. Once your teeth are prepared, impressions are taken to create your new veneers. Your veneers will be made to meet your exact specifications to help you achieve your dream smile.
With the right care, your new smile will last an average of 10 years. Caring for the veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. However, you cannot use abrasive products. In addition, you will need to avoid certain foods and habits, like using the teeth as tools, to prevent the veneers from breaking.
If you are tired of living with an unconfident smile, it is time to get the smile you have always wanted with porcelain veneers. Using a minimally invasive procedure, you will achieve drastic results for a smile you will love showing off.
