Do you have smile flaws that make you embarrassed, or even ashamed of your smile? Dr. Alfred Haeberer may recommend veneers in Sterling, Virginia, if you dream of a more beautiful, radiant smile.

What Are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain or ceramic that is placed on the front of a tooth to enhance its appearance. Dental veneers look natural and are strong and resilient like natural tooth enamel. Your veneers will be custom made specifically for your smile. When they are ready, they will be bonded to the front of your teeth.

When Are Veneers Used?
Our dentist may suggest veneers for your smile if you would like to correct:

– Gaps between your teeth
– Minor misalignment
– Stained or discolored teeth
– Chipped or cracked teeth
– Misshapen teeth

Do They Require Special Care?
Brush and floss your teeth that have veneers in the same way that you do your natural teeth. In addition, visit Haeberer Family & Cosmetic Dentistry often for your regular dental appointments. Do not chew pens, your nails, or ice, as this can damage your veneers. Keep in mind that your veneers will need to be replaced at some point. Caring for your veneers will help them last for as long as possible.
