What are veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin, tooth-shaped shells that are designed to fit over the front of your teeth. Dental veneers are created from tooth-colored materials, typically porcelain/ceramic, to provide your smile with a natural, beautiful appearance. Veneers can also be created from resin, although resin veneers may not be as lifelike as porcelain/ceramic. Dr. Shivaprasanna Rai in Stafford, Virginia, will help you choose the material that is best suited to your individual needs, and he will also select a shade of resin or porcelain/ceramic that will help you achieve a more aesthetic, inviting appearance.

Do I need veneers?

Our dentist may recommend dental veneers if you are searching for a cosmetic solution to your dental flaws. If you are interested in correcting just one or two irregular teeth, we can provide you with the needed veneers to blend in with the rest of your smile. On the other hand, if you are interested in a total smile makeover, we can provide a full set of veneers/crowns to make over your appearance. Veneers can be used to:

  • Improve misshapen teeth
  • Lighten darkened or stained teeth
  • Fix chipped, broken, very worn, or cracked teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Correct slight tooth misalignment
