Over time, it’s common to develop minor cracks, chips, and surface stains on your teeth. However, there is no need to live with a less-than-perfect smile, and our team at Sandston Comprehensive Dentistry can provide several forms of cosmetic dentistry to restore your smile and your self-confidence. One of the smile-renewing options Dr. E. Alexander White & Bradford R. Thweatt offers is dental veneers.

Essentially, dental veneers are wafer-thin shells made of porcelain or composite materials. They created in just a few weeks, and once they are in place on your teeth, you probably won’t recognize your smile!

Prior to having your dental veneers created, our dentist will examine each tooth and take a few X-rays to ensure your teeth have sufficient tooth enamel to mount a dental veneer. If a tooth has insufficient enamel, they may suggest a porcelain dental crown as an alternative to dental veneers.

If your smile is healthy enough for dental veneers, we will create a detailed impression of your teeth that we will send to the dental lab. There, your porcelain dental veneers will be custom created. When it has been completed and sent to our office, we will call you in for a second appointment, where Dr. E. Alexander White & Bradford R. Thweatt will extract a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the corresponding veneer into place.

If you feel dental veneers in Sandston, Virginia, may be the answer to your smile problems, we encourage you to call Sandston Comprehensive Dentistry at 804-737-4444 today to schedule an appoint with Dr. E. Alexander White & Bradford R. Thweatt.
