Porcelain Veneers Reston, VA

Porcelain Veneers An Overview

Damaged, broken, misshapen or discolored teeth all impact the overall health and appearance of your smile. Many patients choose dental veneers for their natural, durable results. While considered a cosmetic dental procedure, dental veneers can also protect teeth from further damage and even the development of tooth decay.

Dr. Datta Malyavantham is a highly trained cosmetic dentist in Reston VA that provides affordable Digital Smile Design services. Dr. Datta’s training in digital technology combined with his natural eye for facial aesthetics allows him to help patients achieve their ultimate smile. We offer same day ceramic veneers and custom fabricated porcelain veneers for a subtle change or total smile makeover.

Porcelain veneers are commonly used to create a full smile makeover. Durable, permanent and highly customizable, porcelain veneers look and function much like natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers are made from an ultra-thin and highly durable porcelain ceramic. The material is stain and decay resistant, protecting the underlying tooth from future damage. The porcelain material reflects light like natural teeth for a beautiful end result. Veneers are color matched and shaped to fit the aesthetic of adjacent teeth. The dental veneers are custom designed by your Ridgetop dentist and fabricated in a local dental lab.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

A multi-step procedure, receiving dental veneers will vary depending on the type of veneer you choose. Your Ridgetop dentist will explain all aspects of your treatment plan with you prior to your procedure.

Same Day Veneer Placement

CEREC veneers will be placed on a consecutive appointment after your initial consultation. Using CEREC technology, your dentist will design up to 4 dental veneers to match your existing smile. Dr. Datta will prepare the teeth to be treated by removing the necessary amount of tooth enamel to create a stable hold for the dental veneer.

Your dental veneers will be fabricated while you wait. The veneers will then be fit, adjusted and bonded to the prepared teeth. Once securely placed, the dental veneers are polished to a natural shine.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

If custom porcelain veneers are the chosen treatment patients will be required to make multiple trips to our Reston, VA dentist office. Beginning with an initial consultation, your Ridgetop dentist will work with you to build a full smile makeover treatment plan.

The teeth will be prepared at the next visit. A minimal amount of tooth structure is removed to allow for comfortable and secure placement of the dental veneers. Impressions are taken of the prepared teeth and are used to create the dental veneers at the dental lab. The veneers will be designed and adjusted to accommodate your cosmetic goals. Patients will be fitted with temporary restorations while they wait for their final veneers.

When the porcelain veneers return from the dental lab, patients return to our dentist office. The temporary veneers are removed and the final restorations are fit and secured in place using a special bonding agent.

Porcelain veneers are designed to last a lifetime. Considered a permanent dental restoration, patients enjoy a comfortable and secure fit for a confident and beautiful smile.
