Do some of your teeth have slight blemishes? Do your teeth have chips, discolorations or are they a little misshaped? If you are searching for a way to enhance your smile without lengthy treatments, you may want to consider dental veneers.

Veneers are thin shells that are crafted from either porcelain or a mixture of porcelain and ceramic materials. They are custom made for your smile and are bonded to your teeth. To prepare your teeth for the veneers, Dr. Alfred Haeberer will clean your teeth and will need to remove a small portion of enamel to create room for the veneer. Our dentist can help you determine which material would be best to make your veneers from and what shade may match your smile the most naturally.

Once the veneers are crafted, our dentist will lightly etch the tooth and apply an adhesive to help the veneer bond to the tooth. The veneer will be cemented into place, and you may have a beautiful smile. Because some of your tooth enamel was removed, this process cannot be reversed.

If you are interested in learning about how veneers may improve your smile, and you live near Sterling, Virginia, please call 703-433-2155 today. We, at Haeberer Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, look forward to helping you.
