A perfect cosmetic dental solution for patients who want to completely redesign their smile without orthodontics or invasive procedures is dental veneers in Chester, VA. Dental veneers are thin shells made from porcelain or resin composite materials that are custom-made to cover the front side of your teeth. With this cosmetic procedure, you can cover up unsightly stains or chips, while also hiding uneven teeth, worn down teeth, and/or abnormally spaced teeth.
Chester, VA Dental Veneers Procedure
Receiving dental veneers is usually a multi-step process that involves at least three office visits to complete. During the initial consultation, Chester, VA dentist, Dr. George P. Varkey, will perform a full examination and evaluate your teeth to ensure you are a candidate for veneers. At your next visit, he will begin the process by removing approximately ½ millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface–this is roughly the same thickness of the veneer. Once the small portion of enamel is removed, Dr. Varkey will take an impression of your teeth, which will then be used to create the veneers in Chester, VA.
Once the veneer is fabricated, it is ready to be bonded onto the tooth or teeth. Dr. Varkey will place the veneer and make adjustments until the veneer’s shape and shade are correct. Before the veneer is bonded in place, Dr. Varkey will apply a gel to the teeth in order to create a rough surface that the veneer can bond to. He will then apply the bonding agent and cement the veneer in Chester, VA at United Smiles.
Once the veneer is in place, you can smile knowing your teeth no longer have dental blemishes. Contact United Smiles in Chester, VA about dental veneers, and how we can help you regain your smile.
