If you have small chips, old dental work, and deep stains on the teeth in your smile, it could leave you wanting to explore your cosmetic restoration options. Even though whitening products and procedures can effectively brighten tooth enamel, they do not address damage to the enamel or noticeable past dental work. One popular and effective option available to you is to have Dr. Feldman place dental veneers on your teeth to beautify your smile.

Dental veneers are basically thin porcelain shells that can be fitted over the faces of the teeth in your smile. They are custom crafted in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth, so as to be indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. Dental veneers can be shaded to appear just like natural enamel, only whiter.

Dr. Feldman will thoroughly examine your teeth to make sure there you have sufficiently strong enamel on each tooth. If you have one or two teeth that have been compromised by past dental work, or the enamel layer is simply too thin to anchor a dental veneer, our dentist might recommend having that tooth fitted for a crown. Then our dentist will form an impression of the teeth in your smile. This is sent to a dental lab so your custom veneers can be constructed.

Once the dental lab has completed your custom dental veneers, we will call you back in for the second appointment to fit the veneers onto your teeth This involves removing a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.

If you are interested in being fitted for dental veneers, please feel free to call our office at 202-362-8412 to schedule an appointment.
