Dental veneers in Fairfax
Revitalize Your Smile
Dental veneers are an incredible solution for transforming your smile!
In as little as two appointments, you can walk away with teeth that are shaped, contoured, sized, and colored to your exact preference.
What to Expect
Using thin, custom-made shells of porcelain, we conceal your natural teeth—any chips, cracks, stains, or other imperfections are hidden from sight with dental veneers in Fairfax.
The first step is to have a thin portion of the enamel removed from the front surface of the teeth; this is to ensure the veneers are comfortable and do not appear bulky. After the enamel is removed, we will take an impression of your teeth. This helps us make the perfect porcelain veneers that fit and complement your smile.
You will be sent home with temporary veneers until your permanent set is ready. This may take about one week!
Finally, you will enter our office again for the placement of your porcelain veneers. Once we remove the temporaries and clean your teeth, we will apply a dental cement to your teeth and position the veneers in place.
Kept well maintained and cared for, veneers will last up to ten years before requiring replacement.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers can cover slight chips, cracks, and discoloration to dramatically improve your smile.
We custom-fit veneers to your teeth to produce beautiful, natural-looking results.
Veneers only require the same care as your natural teeth.
