Are you unhappy with some aspect of your smile? There's no reason to live with the problem any longer. Dr. Padmaja Yalamanchili, your veneersFairfax, VA dentist, explains how porcelain veneers can transform your smile.

A simple yet effective way to make over your smile

Dental veneers offer the perfect solution to many minor cosmetic issues. Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are attached to the fronts of your teeth. They're made of porcelain, a tough substance that reflects light the same way tooth enamel does. Since veneers only cover the front parts of your teeth, you won't need extensive dental work to change your smile.

Porcelain veneers from your Fairfax dentist address a range of problems

Do you have one tooth that looks a little out of place? It might be a little crooked or may come to a point, or maybe it's just shaped differently than your other teeth. No matter what the issue, porcelain veneers can dramatically change the appearance of your teeth. They're also a good choice if a few of your teeth have become shorter over the years due to grinding or clenching.

Some people don't mind gaps between their teeth, while others don't like the way the spaces look. Adding a few veneers closes up those gaps and helps you feel better about your smile. Porcelain veneers are most successful in covering small gaps. If you have large spaces between teeth, braces may be needed to close the gaps.

Veneers are effective in concealing small cracks and chips that can affect the appearance of your teeth and also hide discolorations. Whether you're concerned about one discolored tooth or want to whiten all of your teeth, veneers offer a long-lasting way to brighten your smile. Since porcelain veneers are available in many shades of white, your dentist can help you choose a shade that's just right for you.

Porcelain veneers are the perfect way to renew your smile. Call Dr. Padmaja Yalamanchili, your Fairfax, VA dentist, at (703) 591-4010 to schedule an appointment to learn more about veneers.
