What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, semi-translucent “shells” typically attached to your front teeth. Customized from fine, tooth-like porcelain material, dental veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are used to fix gaps in teeth, repair chipped or broken teeth, improve the appearance of misshapen or crooked teeth, change the shape or length of teeth, and cover stained or discolored teeth.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
The porcelain veneer process involves several steps from treatment planning to final placement, depending on the type of veneers being placed. Reston VA dentist Dr. Datta will meet with you to evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals during your consultation.
We will schedule a visit after your consultation where Dr. Datta will prepare the teeth to be treated by gently removing a minimal amount of tooth surface structure for a comfortable and stable placement of the material. If your ceramic veneers are being placed using CEREC technology, we will schedule a visit after your consultation during which your new veneers will be placed using CEREC technology. Or dental impressions will then be taken and then used by a dental lab in making your porcelain veneers. Temporary veneers can be placed while your custom restorations are being made.
Once your custom-made and color matched veneers are ready (that day if utilizing CEREC technology or on a return visit if being prepared by a lab), they will be permanently secured to the prepared teeth and then polished to a natural luster and adjusted as necessary for fit.
Regular dental visits for preventive care will provide the opportunity for your dentist to monitor the condition of your veneers, spotting and addressing any damage to maximize the longevity of your new smile. With good oral hygiene and proper routine dental care, your porcelain veneers can last for many years.
