Are Porcelain Veneers Right For Me?

Are Porcelain Veneers Right For Me? Are you considering porcelain veneers?

Capital Cosmetic Dentistry of Chevy Chase offers a wide selection of cosmetic dentistry services, including porcelain veneers. Dr. Christopher Banks is a highly trained cosmetic dentist in Washington, DC who is committed to providing the highest standard of dental to every patient who visits our office. Dr. Banks and our dental care team work closely with each patient to understand their dental goals and find the right treatment for their smile.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because they are long-lasting, durable, and can provide a dramatic transformation for a damaged smile. However, porcelain veneers may not be the right solution for every patient. Depending on what works best for you, Dr. Banks may suggest tooth bonding, ceramic crowns, or tooth whitening as an alternative to porcelain veneers.

Are Porcelain Veneers Right For Me?

During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Banks will thoroughly examine your teeth. Dr. Banks will also discuss your cosmetic goals and needs before determining which dental service will best suit your needs. Porcelain veneers are a highly durable, natural-looking solution for a wide range of cosmetic dental concern, including:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • Chipped, fractured or broken teeth
  • Discolored teeth

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front and sides of your teeth. Receiving porcelain veneers will require 2-3 visits to our Chevy Chase dental office.  After a comprehensive exam, Dr. Banks may use digital photography or 3-D models to show you what your treatment plan may include. He will then take impressions of your smile to send to a state of the art fabrication facility for your porcelain veneers to be created. Once your porcelain veneers are prepared, Dr. Banks will skillfully adhere them to your teeth and make any necessary adjustments. In the end, patients will have a beautiful, natural looking result.

Receiving porcelain veneers is a commitment, so Dr. Banks will work with you to determine if they are right for your cosmetic goals, lifestyle, oral health, and budget.
