Reshape Your Smile With Veneers

Your smile is the first thing people notice about you, so you want it to look its best. Unfortunately, most of us have a feature that we would like to change about our smile. Dr. Murshed Rahman of Vanguard Dental Solutions offers cosmetic dentistry in Alexandria, VA, to give you a beautiful smile you can feel proud to show off.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth but can be used to correct a range of dental issues, such as teeth that are stained and can’t be whitened, minor chips and cracks, and crooked teeth.

Advantages of Veneers 

This cosmetic dentistry option in Alexandria, VA, has many benefits, including:

  • Covering imperfections- Veneers can transform your smile instantly by covering imperfections and closing small gaps between teeth
  • They look and feel natural- Veneers are made from materials that closely resemble natural tooth enamel because they are light reflective, and they can be color-matched to the rest of your smile or give you a brighter one
  • Require little enamel removal- A tiny amount of enamel has to be removed to ensure a perfect fit for your veneers
  • Stain-resistant- Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, so you can enjoy a variety of foods without worrying about the brightness of your smile
  • Increasing confidence in your smile- Veneers can give you the smile you want instantly
  • Low maintenance- Veneers don’t need any special maintenance to keep clean. Simply brush and floss like you normally do

How Long Do Veneers Last?

With reasonable precautions, dental veneers can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years. While you can eat almost anything you like, it is important to avoid grinding your teeth or biting down on hard non-edible items like plastic to avoid damaging your veneers. If you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about getting a mouthguard.

If you are ready to transform your smile with veneers, ask Dr. Rahman of Vanguard Dental Solutions about your cosmetic dentistry options in Alexandria, VA. Call (703) 751-5052 to schedule your appointment today.
