Learn how our Arlington, VA, dental practice can use veneers to revitalize your smile.
What Are Veneers?
A dental veneer is an ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain that is affixed to the front surface of a tooth. The dental veneer hides cosmetic imperfections, making the tooth appear pristine and free from visible flaws.
Porcelain veneers are typically used to treat your front teeth. Just a few well-placed dental veneers can give you a brand-new smile. Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available today.
What Can Veneers Treat?
- Tooth gaps
- Uneven teeth
- Smile asymmetry
What Are Veneers Made Of?
Our veneers are made of durable, stain-resistant porcelain. Unlike composite veneers, this dental porcelain matches the color and translucence of natural teeth. The porcelain material is also much longer-lasting.
When possible, our Arlington dental office uses IPS e.max® for its veneers. This type of material is especially durable, and closely matches the look of natural tooth enamel.

However, we can complete the process faster in some cases, sometimes as soon as overnight. We can discuss treatment timelines in more detail during your consultation at our Arlington, VA, practice.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
On average, porcelain veneers last approximately 10 years with proper care. You can extend the life of your veneers if you are especially good about oral hygiene and checkups.
