Information on Porcelain Veneers in Washington D.C.

Introduction to Porcelain Veneers

Board certified dental specialist, Dr. Ingber, has helped hundreds of cosmetic dentistry D.C. patients achieve the smile of their dreams by using advanced cosmetic dentistry techniques. One of the most popular options is a type of porcelain restoration known as dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thin, custom-designed shells of porcelain bonded onto the front side of one or more teeth. When placed by a talented Washington, D.C., porcelain veneers dentist, such as Dr. Ingber, this treatment option can correct a variety of aesthetic issues.

Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

You may be a candidate for porcelain veneers if you have teeth that are:

  • Discolored/stained
  • Cracked/chipped
  • Misaligned
  • Worn
  • Crowded
  • Disproportionate

If you desire a smile that looks uniform and even, porcelain veneers are probably a good option for you.

The Veneer Placement Process

If you desire a smile that looks uniform and even, porcelain veneers are probably a good option for you.

First, you will visit Dr. Ingber’s practice to plan and prepare for veneer placement. He will ask you to describe your ideal cosmetic outcome, and will take impressions to help the laboratory craft your veneers. He may remove a small bit of tooth structure to make room for the veneers (“no-prep” veneers do not require any tooth structure to be removed). Then, Dr. Ingber will place temporary veneers for you to wear while your permanent set is being fabricated.

When your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to Dr. Ingber’s practice for another visit. He will remove the temporary set and bond the permanent veneers into place. He will make any last-minute adjustments for fit and comfort, and polish the veneers so they blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.

Recovering from Veneer Placement

Veneer placement is minimally invasive and does not require any recovery. You can immediately begin to enjoy your beautiful new smile. Brush and floss your teeth normally and be sure to schedule regular check-ups and exams with Dr. Ingber at his dental practice in D.C.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

One of the primary advantages of porcelain veneers is the material. Porcelain is a strong, stain-resistant material that lasts for many years with the proper care. Because of your veneers’ durability, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about breaking the restorations. Also, unlike other dental restorations such as crowns, veneers do not require a significant amount of tooth structure to be removed before placement.

The veneer placement process is quick and convenient. It typically only requires two visits to Dr. Ingber’s practice, so he can fit you for the veneers and then place them once they are ready. Veneers are custom-crafted to blend in beautifully with your surrounding teeth. Most people will not be able to tell the difference between your veneers and your natural teeth. Your smile will look naturally better. After they’ve been placed, you can immediately begin enjoying your enhanced smile without any downtime or recovery.
