Porcelain Veneers And Instant Orthodontics

Alexandria Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics

Is your smile beginning to look a little dull? Has its luster faded over the years? Maybe you’ve got a chipped tooth – or maybe even a couple. You don’t have to live with these imperfections if you don’t want to. At The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, porcelain veneers can mask these and other dental flaws, leaving you with a magnificent smile.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit veneers to go over the front part of your teeth, giving them an attractive, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.

An In-Demand Procedure

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are very strong, and are made to match the color and shape of your teeth. They can even used to cover slightly crooked teeth, which why they’ve also been called “instant orthodontics.”

One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

Express Your Personality With A Smile Makeover

Alexandria lowest price teeth bleaching

What makes up a perfect smile? White teeth? Straight teeth? Teeth with pleasing proportions relative to one another? A perfect smile is more than the sum of its parts. At Center for Dental Anesthesia, we believe that your perfect smile also contains another element—your unique personality.

We know that perfection is a loaded word. But we can help you get as close to a perfect smile as possible with a smile makeover – a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures that remedy any problems with your existing smile.

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a multitude of tooth restoration treatments. On the least invasive end, we have dental bonding and inlays/onlays. These can often be completed in just one visit. Porcelain veneers can remedy small imperfections such as chips. A veneer can also correct the shape of a tooth that is misaligned.

If you have teeth that are not structurally sound, you may need a dental crown. The crowns we provide at Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria blend perfectly with your existing teeth. No “chiclet” effect where the crown sticks out like a sore thumb.

What if you have a missing tooth? Dental implants may be the answer. This permanent tooth restoration is actually anchored into the jawbone, offering strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession. With a dental implant, there is no need to damage the two adjacent teeth, which is necessary for a dental bridge.

Perhaps your greatest need is to repair or replace dental work performed elsewhere. We can remove old silver fillings and replace with natural tooth colored fillings and replace broken dental crowns.

The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria has a full complement of cosmetic and family dentistry that will give you that perfect smile of your dreams. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

northern Virgina cosmetic dental and tooth implants

A well-designed porcelain veneer from the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria does not make your tooth look larger – unless you want it to.

Porcelain veneers can correct many cosmetic dental problems, and are a minimally invasive restoration. During the placement of some veneers, an extremely thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth.

If you have teeth with damage, discoloration, an irregular shape or minimal to moderate misalignment, you have several dental remedies to choose from. Don’t worry if you feel that veneers seem to have more cons than pros for you. You have alternative options. We can analyze your smile, your needs, and your goals to develop a perfect plan.

The Center for Dental Anesthesia offers the highest standard of dental care. In addition to porcelain veneers, we have a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. We also provide special needs dentistry. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Reinvent Yourself With A Smile Makeover

Prince William County smile makeover

A cosmetic dentistry smile makeover from the Center for Dental Anesthesia can boost your confidence for an upcoming job interview, promotion or new relationship. The process may include teeth whitening, invisible braces, veneers, dental implants, or gum tissue graft surgery.

Many of these take time. Understanding the process requires only a simple consultation. Small changes can make a big difference.

How The Rich Do It
Public figures from London to Hollywood, from New York to Vegas would advise you to:

  • Choose a dental professional with excellent education, a discerning eye and impeccable track record in the cosmetic dentistry field.
  • Consult with the professional, chart a course, and trust the course enough to see it through to completion.
  • Websites are great for cosmetic dentistry track records, education info, staff description and contact information. Visit Center for Dental Anesthesia’s website at http://snoozedentistry.net/blog/.

Do Not Cut Corners
Cheap glue and shoddy engineering never stopped a plane crash. Every cosmetic dental smile makeover should have a unique treatment plan to achieve optimal results. There is no magic pill. Healing takes time before proceeding to the next step. Dental implants, for instance, are valuable in the comfort and beauty they offer but pushing the placement of the permanent restoration before proper healing is dangerous and risky. Learn to be patient with the goal in mind.

Better Smile, Better You
Is this the year to reinvent yourself? Consider improving your physical fitness, taking up a new hobby, pursuing continuing education or a new career to go along with your new smile.

A smile makeover is defined differently for every person. Our cosmetic dentistry includes porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. Call the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria to schedule a consultation.

What Can Veneers Do For Your Smile?

porcelain veneers cost Alexandria

In this post from the team at the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, we are taking the time to answer a question that many of our dental patients have: “What exactly are veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown, which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front of the tooth. They are typically used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

If you visit us for veneers, we will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to make the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a minuscule layer of the tooth’s enamel is removed to attach the veneer, this procedure is usually irreversible.

The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria offers all the cosmetic dentistry care you need to achieve a beautiful smile. We also provide special needs dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today.
