There are several types of dental veneers, but your Fredericksburg cosmetic dentist uses porcelain because it is a durable material that closely mimics tooth enamel. On average, porcelain veneers can last ten years or longer.

In many cases, veneer longevity comes down to healthy oral habits.

About Porcelain Veneers in Fredericksburg, VA

Porcelain veneers are translucent and strongly resemble tooth enamel. They are thin but strong tooth shells custom crafted to look natural inside your mouth.

For decades veneers were a celebrity secret, but today many happy patients from all walks of life enjoy the cosmetic benefits of porcelain veneers.

Veneers can conceal the following cosmetic issues:

  • Short or worn teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Gummy smiles
  • Midline issues

A consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Fredericksburg determines whether veneers will adequately address your cosmetic goals. And you can veneer one tooth or several. Some patients even incorporate veneers into a smile makeover that might include other treatments like dental implants, dental crowns, and teeth whitening.

When it comes to cosmetic services at Blue Bird Dentistry, it’s all about you and what you hope to achieve.
