Porcelain Veneers - Cosmetic Dentistry in Purcellville and LoCo

Porcelain Veneers: the Instant Smile Makeover

Porcelain veneers are often called an "instant smile makeover" — and for good reason. In as few as two or three appointments, we can transform a smile with stained and/or crooked teeth and turn it into the kind of smile you once thought impossible.

Porcelain veneers are the perfect cosmetic treatment for patients looking for fast, dramatic results. But, you should be aware that porcelain veneers take commitment. Once your teeth are prepped for veneers, you will likely need to stick with veneers for the rest of your life. If you are unsure you want that level of commitment, you may be interested in a combination of teeth whitening, orthodontics, and/or odontoplasty. We would be happy to help you find the solution that is right for you.

Tooth shaping - Odontoplasty --  - Cosmetic Dentistry in Purcellville and LoCo

Teeth Shaping (Odontoplasty)

Teeth don't always erupt evenly, and sometimes teeth just take on a shape of their own. If this sounds like your dental situation, odontoplasty may be helpful. 

During an odontoplasty procedure, the dentist shapes the tooth using either a dental sanding disk or a diamond-tipped drill. Odontoplasty is done to alter the size, shape, and length of the tooth. This type of treatment may be right for you if you have any of the following cosmetic conditions:

  • Uneven anterior (front) teeth
  • Teeth that slightly overlap
  • Minor crowding that complicates brushing or flossing
  • Teeth than are overly pointed
  • Chipped tooth
  • Uneven enamel surfaces
Dental bonding  - Cosmetic Dentistry in Purcellville and LoCo

Dental Bonding: The Fast, Affordable Way to Correct Cosmetic Issues

Dental bonding uses a composite resin material to correct the appearance of chipped, misshapen teeth, and other cosmetic conditions. Dental bonding is faster and less expensive than porcelain veneers, but it does come with some trade-offs.

With dental bonding, the material can be tinted to match the surrounding teeth. Although, the material does not have the same layered, opaque appearance as porcelain veneers or natural teeth, nor does it have the stain resistance or longevity of porcelain veneers. Most bonded materials last approximately seven years, compared to around 20 years for porcelain veneers. Another important difference is that bonding material, unlike porcelain veneers, can stain. Therefore, you should be mindful of consuming dark or high-tannin foods and drinks.
