Porcelain Veneers - Virginia Beach, VA

Beautiful Smiles Created with Ease

Thanks to porcelain veneers, fixing a flawed smile is now easier than ever because this procedure can take care of a long list of imperfections all at the same time. Stains, chips, cracks, and gaps are no match for porcelain veneers, and you can get them right here in Virginia Beach at Lakeshore Dental.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are actually extremely thin ceramic shells that are fitted directly to the front side of the teeth. They look just like real enamel, and they are always custom-made to bring out the best qualities of a patient’s smile. With them, we can:

  • Get rid of permanent stains
  • Quickly fix noticeable chips and cracks
  • Close obvious gaps
  • Help with minor crowding
  • Straighten slightly crooked teeth

The big reason porcelain veneers are so popular is that they can do all of this simultaneously.

What is the Procedure Like?

After an oral exam and going over your smile goals with Dr. Patel, he will let you know if porcelain veneers are the best way to help you achieve them. If so, the procedure will unfold over the course of two appointments:

  • At the first, a small amount of enamel will be removed from your teeth to ensure the veneers lay flat, and then Dr. Patel will take an impression of your prepared teeth.
  • This impression will be sent to a dental lab to fabricate your veneers, and before you leave, your dentist will place temporary veneers on your teeth.
  • After a week or so, you’ll return to Lakeshore Dental so your temporaries can be removed, and your permanent veneers will be bonded to your teeth using dental cement.
  • Finally, Dr. Patel will make a few minor adjustments and check your bite, and at that point, your new smile will be ready for the world!
