Lasting solutions for your smile
Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. All types of veneers have become increasingly popular because of their simplicity and versatility when addressing dental and cosmetic concerns. When bonded to the teeth, veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to discoloration. They can deliver natural-looking results that are highly customizable to your unique needs.
Dr. Stacey Hall is an experienced cosmetic dentist in Williamsburg, VA offering personalized smile makeovers with custom porcelain veneers. They can be used to address a range of concerns including:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Porcelain can provide subtle or dramatic changes to the appearance of your smile, depending on your desired result. As a highly-trained cosmetic dentist, Dr. Hall has the skill and knowledge to incorporate porcelain veneers as part of your treatment plan with exceptional results. The goal of your treatment is always to meet your needs and desires while supporting and improving overall dental health.Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent dental restoration. This is due to the amount of tooth structure that has to be removed for a secure fit and the durability of the material. With good oral hygiene, porcelain veneers can last for many years without needing repair or replacement. Dr. Hall and our dental care team will monitor the condition of your veneers during routine dental care visits.How do I care for porcelain veneers?
Once your new veneers are placed, daily tooth brushing and flossing are important to reduce the risk of tooth decay or gum disease. You can brush and floss veneers like normal teeth. Preventing decay and periodontal disease is important for the longevity of your porcelain veneers.Can a porcelain veneer be placed on a tooth after a root canal?
In most cases, we can place a porcelain veneer on a tooth that has had a root canal. This can be done to restore the natural color and shape to a tooth that has become discolored or damaged and received root canal treatment. Dr. Hall will evaluate the integrity of the tooth structure to ensure a good result.How long is the porcelain veneers process?
Porcelain veneers will typically require 2-3 visits to complete, starting with your initial consult and exam. The second visit is when Dr. Hall will prepare the teeth and take dental impressions. Temporary veneers are often placed until your custom restorations are complete. At the final visit, we will secure the new veneers to your teeth and make any necessary adjustments for a comfortable bite and stable result.Are porcelain veneers covered by dental insurance?
Porcelain veneers are not typically covered by dental insurance. Our office can work with you to determine any benefits that may apply to your treatment plan and we offer payment options to suit your budget.
