Why Should You Get Veneers

A great smile boosts your self-confidence and impresses everyone you meet. If your teeth lack sparkle or have obvious defects, take charge with porcelain veneers from Gibberman Dental in Alexandria, VA. Dr. Paul Gibberman, Dr. Lauren Gibberman, and Dr. Maria Hodas use these thin laminates to disguise flaws and transform smiles from drab to superb.

A healthy smile...

You've got one. No decay, no gum disease, only a few fillings on back molars. But, wow, those front teeth are dark, chipped, and gapped. What can you do?

Come to Gibberman Dental in Alexandria for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Ask about porcelain veneers, and your dentist will tell you if they suit your oral health and smile expectations.

What are porcelain veneers?

They're tooth-shaped pieces of high-grade ceramic individually crafted to fit over teeth marred by:

  • Intractable stains from fluoride, smoking, root canal therapy, food, drinks, or prescription drugs
  • Cracks, chips, pitting, craze lines, and other surface imperfections
  • Small gaps, tooth rotations, and minor crowding

A tooth-colored cement holds veneers in place indefinitely, and veneers actually reinforce weak tooth structure.

Placement is straightforward. The treatment takes two to three visits to Gibberman Dental where your dentist will examine your teeth and take oral impressions. These impressions, along with details your dentist supplies, help a skilled ceramic technician create the laminates with just the right shape and size. Additionally, your dentist removes some enamel from each tooth so the laminates bite and fit well.

Finally, veneers last for years and resist stains. Everyday Health explains that the porcelain which makes up your laminates is glassy and non-porous. So, rest assured your smile will stay bright and attractive.

Reasons to get veneers

1. Improve your smile appearance, erasing defects for good.

2. Veneers require far less enamel resurfacing than crowns do.

3. Your veneers look totally real and blend right in with the rest of your smile.

4. They work well with other cosmetic services as part of a complete smile makeover which could include dental implants, whitening, bonding, porcelain crowns, and more.
