Dental Conditions Porcelain Veneers can Treat

Porcelain veneers—also known as dental veneers—are a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment that can conceal a wide range of common aesthetic problems.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile and would like to learn if porcelain veneers are right for you, please call Softouch Dental Care at 703-319-6990 to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Michael Chung. Dr. Chung is an experienced cosmetic dentist with a passion for natural smile aesthetics, and he has helped numerous patients from the greater Oakton, Vienna and Fairfax, Virginia, areas achieve the vibrant, beautifully aligned smiles they desire.

Porcelain Veneers and Aesthetic Imperfections

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom made to address your unique dental needs and cosmetic concerns. Dental veneers can be used to mask a variety of cosmetic issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Deeply stained teeth

Patients with severe bite conditions or alignment problems may benefit from another treatment, such as Invisalign. Dr. Chung will discuss your options with you in detail during your consultation.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Your porcelain veneers are individually crafted with your entire smile in mind, and they are designed to look like healthy, natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can also be custom tinted to your desired level of whiteness.

After your veneers are manufactured and Dr. Chung ensures a symmetrical fit for a seamless smile, your porcelain veneers are bonded to the surfaces of your natural teeth. This not only restores beauty and provides a properly aligned smile, it also preserves the functionality of your teeth.

The high-quality porcelain used in veneers is very durable when bonded to your teeth. It is also resistant to staining and easy to care for with a good daily dental hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing. For additional information, please see our Porcelain Veneers Benefits page.
