Please call our office at 804-346-8330 for our Glen Allen location or (540) 967-0777 for our Louisa location today to learn more about porcelain dental veneers, and schedule your consultation with Drs. Andre and Hall.

Porcelain dental veneers are thin sheaths, resembling eggshells, that are placed over the front of the teeth to reshape and conceal damage, transforming your teeth into a picture-perfect smile. Our dentists use porcelain veneers because the color and translucence of the material is a close match to the natural appearance of tooth enamel, and is stain resistant so that your smile will remain beautiful for years to come.

Our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers to:

  • Close large gaps in your smile
  • Whitening stained or discolored teeth
  • Improve the appearance of misshapen or crooked teeth
  • Restore teeth that have been broken, chipped, or worn down

Dental veneers typically require two visits to our office. During your first appointment, a small amount of surface enamel will be removed to allow the veneer to lie flat within the natural smile line. Impressions will be taken of the prepared teeth, and sent to a dental lab to create your custom porcelain veneers. A temporary restoration will be attached to protect your teeth during this time. During your second visit, our dentists will bond your porcelain veneers to your teeth to perfect your smile.

We invite you to contact our practice today for more information on porcelain dental veneers and to make your appointment with our dental professionals.
