If you have concerns about your smile, porcelain veneers could be right for you. Virginia Beach dentist Dr. Brent Moses is experienced in cosmetic dentistry treatments and can help you improve the beauty, health and function of your teeth with dental veneers.
About Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer covers the front and sides of a tooth, commonly used to:
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth
- Change the shape or length of teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
What To Expect
The process for porcelain veneers begins with a comprehensive exam and consultation. Dr. Moses will meet with you to discuss your concerns and treatment options. Dental veneers can be made of different materials. Tooth bonding is an inexpensive, same day treatment to cover teeth with composite resin. This option is a more temporary solution when compared to porcelain veneers.
The porcelain veneer procedure usually takes 2 or 3 visits to the dentist. Dr. Moses will prepare the teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of the natural tooth structure. This creates room for the veneers to fit comfortably and stably in your mouth.
The porcelain veneers will be fabricated in a dental laboratory. Dr. Moses will send an impression of your teeth along with treatment specifications to a highly talented ceramist, who will hand-fabricate each tooth veneer. It generally takes about 3 weeks for Dr. Moses to receive your final restorations.
At the final appointment, Dr. Moses will try the veneers on your teeth and then cement them to the teeth for a permanent restoration.
How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
Patients often ask about the cost of veneers or how much a single tooth veneer costs. There are several factors that go into the price of veneers, the first of which is materials. Other factors include the size and location of the tooth as well as the cosmetic goals of treatment.
Dr. Moses offers porcelain veneers as well as the less expensive alternative, tooth bonding procedure.
