Porcelain Veneers An Overview

Are you looking for a lasting, effective cosmetic smile makeover?

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are custom designed to cover cosmetic blemishes affecting the aesthetics of the smile. Dental veneers are specially designed to last for many years. Dr. Ahrabi is highly trained and experienced in applying dental veneers and offers natural and beautiful results.

Dental veneers are made from high-quality dental ceramic and reflect light like natural teeth. The veneers are shaped, sized and colored to blend in with the patient’s smile. A sufficient amount of tooth enamel is removed from the affected teeth to make room for the dental veneer. After the preparation of the teeth, Dr. Ahrabi permanently bonds the veneer using a special adhesive. Dental veneers are designed to be a permanent dental cosmetic restoration.

Veneers can give patients the “Hollywood” smile they have always wanted. Porcelain veneers are commonly used to treat a range of cosmetic dental concerns including:

  • Chipped

  • cracked or damaged teeth

  • Discolored or yellow teeth

  • Gaps in teeth

  • Crooked teeth

Dr. Ahrabi has a natural eye for facial aesthetics and provides beautiful smiles with dental veneers. Every patient will receive a thorough dental health exam to determine if dental veneers are the appropriate treatment for their cosmetic dental concerns.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

In just a few visits to our Oakton, VA dentist office the dental veneers can be designed and secured. The procedure begins with preparing the teeth for the veneers. Dr. Ahrabi removes a small amount of enamel from the teeth. Then Dr. Ahrabi takes molds of the teeth for the fabrication of the custom restoration.

Next, Dr. Ahrabi will consider the shape, size, and color to create a natural looking dental veneer that will blend seamlessly with your smile. The design is sent to a dental lab for fabrication. Patients will often be fit with a temporary veneer while they wait for their final restoration.

The final restoration will be fit and securely bonded to the teeth upon fabrication. Dr. Ahrabi will ensure that the patient is fully satisfied with their result before securing the veneer. Once adhered to the tooth, teeth treated with dental veneers can be used and maintained just like natural teeth. Dental veneers are highly resistant to staining and decay. Dental veneers can last for many years with proper oral hygiene and regular dental check ups.
