We would all love to have a bright and beautiful smile. However, the reality is that not everyone is naturally blessed with a perfectly straight, well-aligned set of teeth. As a result, we often are self-conscious about our smiles showing those gaps, chips, and other imperfections.

Porcelain veneers are among the most versatile, comprehensive, and smile-transforming cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at Elite Prosthetic Dentistry. They correct a wide array of smile flaws by concealing them with a thin, porcelain shell. They look completely natural, are comfortable, fit securely, and are customized specifically for you.

Before & After

To determine if veneers are the ideal solution for you, schedule your consultation with our experienced prosthetic and cosmetic specialist, Dr. Gerald Marlin, or call (202) 244-2101 today. Elite Prosthetic Dentistry helps men and women throughout the country, including Washington D.C., Bethesda, Arlington, and neighboring communities throughout Maryland and Virginia.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, customized, ceramic shells or shields bonded to your tooth’s front surface to conceal various aesthetic issues. They can be tailored to match the unique color of your adjacent teeth and simulate the natural glow of your tooth enamel, providing results that are attractive, natural-looking, and seamlessly blended with your smile.

In What Ways Can Dental Veneers Improve Your Smile Aesthetically?

Apart from correcting tooth discoloration caused by medications, age, smoking, and certain foods and beverages, here are a few other ways porcelain veneers can help your smile.

1. Short, Worn, and Chipped Teeth

Teeth that are chipped, worn, or shortened due to bruxism can make smiling uncomfortable as you may feel insecure about the way these teeth look. Veneers can be attached securely and comfortably to the tooth’s front surface, provide symmetry, make it appear as if all your teeth are of the same height, and help you feel more confident in social situations.

2. Slightly Crooked Teeth

Dental veneers can hide slightly overlapping or crooked teeth and save you the time it takes to straighten teeth aesthetically with years of orthodonture treatment.

3. Gummy Smiles

If your gum-to-tooth ratio or uneven gum line makes you feel uncomfortable, veneers can be strategically placed to lengthen your teeth to conceal this issue and produce a more proportioned look.

4. Uneven Spacing or Small Gaps

Dental veneers may be considered if you have small gaps or uneven spacing between teeth. In some cases, Dr. Marlin can hide or camouflage gaps or unevenly shaped teeth with veneers to create the smile for which you’ve been longing.

If you are self-conscious about your smile because of any of the conditions listed above, porcelain dental veneers can improve your look and help you smile with complete confidence.
