Dental veneers are custom porcelain covers for your teeth. Veneers are a long term solution to changing the color of your teeth, to close spaces, straighten teeth and to restore broken, chipped or fractured teeth. Veneers are natural looking and strong, and provide beautiful healthy looking smiles.
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that fits over a damaged, discolored, or misshaped teeth. This procedure has several advantages over other tooth restoration procedures. Porcelain is an extremely durable material with a color, translucence and texture that is similar to tooth enamel. It is not susceptible to decay and resists staining while maintaining a natural appearance.
“I had very damaged front teeth with chips and staining. Dr. Lu suggested dental veneers for the damaged teeth and a professional whitening for my whole smile. I was really nervous about the process but it turned out to be really easy, I didn’t have anything to worry about. The results are stunning thanks to Dr. Lu!”
—Elyse, Franconia, VA
It took years for Elyse to realize that her smile was weighing her down. Although her smile was relatively healthy, her front teeth caused her embarrassment. She was self-conscious about her teeth to the point that they hindered her performance at work and her social life.
“I basically just stopped going out, it wasn’t worth it to be so embarrassed about my smile.” When she came to see Dr. Lu, she says she was instantly impressed. “The entire facility was very clean and that staff was professional; it was clear they knew what they were doing.”
After getting a few veneers on her front teeth and undergoing a whitening procedure, Elyse says she had no reason to put off her cosmetic dentistry for so long. “The process was easy and painless. Dr. Lu was fantastic; I can’t thank her enough for saving my smile!”
Our patients often ask, ‘Can veneers fix crooked teeth?’ And the answer is yes, as dental veneers can effectively close gaps between teeth, lengthen and reshape teeth, repair chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth, as well as cover stains and discolorations.
