Not quite in a place where you feel you need major cosmetic dentistry, but not really happy with your smile, either? Veneers are a great way to cover over small imperfections and give you the smile of your dreams without breaking the bank.
At the dental practice of Dr. Padmaja Yalamanchili in Fairfax, Virginia, you can get gorgeous porcelain veneers that can last for years and fix a whole range of cosmetic dental issues.
Dental veneers are extremely thin shells of porcelain that fit over the front faces of your teeth to create a perfect visual. Since porcelain is break-and-stain resistant, all you have to do is care for them like you do your original teeth, and see your dentist regularly.
Dr. Yalamanchili has seen many patients enjoy their veneers for 10 years or even longer before they need revision or replacement. You could be her next patient!
Veneers can fix a lot of minor problems with your front facing teeth, including:
Discoloration or stains can be genetic, or caused by smoking or chewing nicotine or taking certain medications. They can also be darkened beverages like coffee, tea, or red wine. Veneers give you a smile of the precise shade of whiteness your heart has always desired.
If you’re someone who suffers from conscious or unconscious urges to grind your teeth (bruxism) or put nonfood items in your mouth (like pencils to chew on) you might notice worn places where your bite doesn’t line up anymore. Veneers can make your smile even again.
Gaps between teeth can be viewed by many as charming or adorable, but a lot of people hate it when their own teeth have a gap. Veneers make all of your teeth look perfectly spaced.
If you have hairline cracks in your tooth enamel, they usually show up as dark lines. Veneers solve these cosmetic imperfections. However, if you have deep cracks ask Dr. Yalamanchili if you need restorative care first to protect your teeth.
Your teeth may have been bumped out of alignment due to trauma to the face. Veneers can fix that, presenting a perfectly lined up arch of teeth to the world.
A chipped front tooth can make you reluctant to smile. No worries, veneers can make your front teeth look as good as new, giving you more reasons to smile every day.
Veneers only take two visits: one to prep your mouth for application and then a second to apply the custom fabricated veneers. Dr. Yalamanchili can let you know if you are a good candidate during your consultation.
