Restyle Your Smile
For the small imperfections in your smile, the natural look of porcelain veneers may be the solution. These thin, yet durable shells of tooth-colored material cover the front surfaces of your teeth, leaving it looking more beautiful and radiant than ever. If your teeth are chipped, broken, worn down, discolored, or irregularly shaped, we can give you a beautiful smile with porcelain veneers at our Virginia Beach office.

Understanding the Procedure
One of the aspects of the Smile Center that makes it stand out among competitors is our ability to provide highly individualized care. The necessary time and attention will be given during your consultation to ensure that your personal requests are taken into account and that your treatment plan reflects the results you would like to see. We will even provide you with a series of free before and after photos.
Once your care plan has been carefully designed, the preparation for your new smile will begin. A local anesthetic will be applied to ensure your comfort and a very small amount of enamel will be removed from your tooth to make room for the veneer. We will take molds of your prepared teeth and, guided by our digital photographs, simulations, and explicit instructions, our trusted dental laboratory team will construct your veneers. We will fit you with temporary restorations to maintain the aesthetics of your smile and use these temporary veneers to give us a chance to make any necessary adjustments before implementing the permanent ones. In a few weeks, the lab will send your porcelain veneers back to our Virginia Beach office and they will be ready to be tried in.
After closely examining the fit and color of your new teeth, and trimming them to optimize your bite, your dentist will clean, polish, and lightly buff their surfaces to create the most favorable bonding surface. Finally, the cement will be applied and the veneers will be placed. You may be asked to attend a follow-up appointment during which your dentist will check to make sure your gums are adapting well to your new smile. Our Virginia Beach practice is dedicated to placing your porcelain veneers with a meticulous attention to detail and a gentle touch. You can rest assured that we will provide you with a relaxing, comfortable experience.
Caring for Your Smile
Brushing and flossing at least twice a day is essential to maintaining your porcelain veneers and routine checkups at the Smile Center will keep your overall oral health in check.
Although veneers are stain-resistant, it is advised to avoid potential stain-causing substances such as tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco. Additionally, avoiding biting hard objects like ice, pen caps, and your fingernails will ultimately increase the lifespan of your smile. Complete care instructions will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
