Instead of undergoing radical procedures or long-term treatments, there’s an easier and simpler way to improve your smile using porcelain veneers. When you visit Bearley Dental in Charlottesville, Virginia, Dr. Daniel Bearley and his team provide high-quality dental veneers that can give your smile that WOW factor.
Porcelain veneers are dental devices used in Hollywood for decades, giving movie stars those iconic million-dollar smiles. Thanks to scientific advances in dental porcelains and adhesive technology, you can now enjoy the natural appearance of durable veneers without breaking the bank.
Veneers are thin shells crafted from porcelain, which are highly customizable so that they can be crafted to match the shade and shape of your natural teeth. Veneers can also help with a wide range of cosmetic issues, like:
Another more economically priced option Dr. Bearley recommends to patients is composite resin veneers. These veneers are easy to repair should they become stained, chipped, or damaged. That said, porcelain veneers are incredibly durable and not prone to chipping or stains.
Getting your new veneers placed often takes about two office visits. However, Dr. Bearley only recommends veneers for those with healthy teeth, free from decay and cavities. Should your smile suffer from any of these dental issues, Dr. Bearley may wish to treat those problems before placing your dental veneers.
During the first of two visits, Dr. Bearley will prepare your teeth by gently roughing the enamel on the front of your teeth. This process will help your veneers create a stronger bond with your teeth. He will then take dental impressions of your teeth so that your new veneers will be custom-made just for your smile in the laboratory.
When you return for your final visit, the doctor will fit your dental veneers, making slight adjustments here and there until he achieves the perfect appearance and fit. He’ll then permanently bond the veneers onto your teeth.
The smile of your dreams can become your new reality. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Bearley by calling (434) 443-8034. You can also visit our office at 901 Preston Ave, Ste 200, Charlottesville, VA 22903.
