Did you ever wonder what “March Madness,” Reston dentists and veneers had in common? No? Well, you’re not alone! If your answer is “not in this lifetime,” you are probably like most other bracket – watching sports fans, who agonized over their favorite team’s antics on the road to the “Final Four.” Along the way, there were just as many frowns of the losers as smiles of the fans of the victorious teams; and therein lies the connection.
Instead of putting your “best foot forward,” it is just as important to put your “best face forward.” Since you only get one chance to make a good first impression, the condition of your teeth say it all. Are you a smoker, with permanently stained teeth that don’t respond to dyes and whitening treatments? Do you have broken or chipped teeth? Are there unusually large spaces between your teeth? Have medications or too much coffee discolored those pearly whites? Here comes the dentist from Reston, Va. riding to your rescue with porcelain veneers that are so natural that only your mother will know for sure – and you can be sure that she won’t tell.
More About Veneers
Seriously, if you’re not familiar with what porcelain veneers are, here’s the scoop. Veneers are thin, semi-translucent laminates, permanently bonded to your teeth. It is a conservative procedure. Unlike a crown, where more of the natural tooth surface is removed, a veneer only uses a small amount of the tooth’s surface, giving you the smile that lights up your face, THE SMILE! Although not suitable for all patients, it is one of the most aesthetically pleasing alternatives to conditions, involving the front teeth, in cosmetic dentistry.
Veneers can even help Mother Nature by fixing minor twists, overlaps and small tooth gaps. They can even be customized to match your existing teeth, resisting stains and helping to whiten already darkened tooth structures. So, when you were smiling from ear to ear, after getting your veneers from a dentist from Reston, and watching your home team march through the brackets, destroy the competition, only your Reston dentist knew for sure … when you smiled!
