At Mosaic Dental in Sterling, Virginia, Anuradha Beri, BDS, CAGS, MSD, and Zia Rizvi, DDS, cover all of your dental care needs, from the general to the cosmetic and restorative. We’ve compiled this helpful guide on how veneers can give you the smile that you’ve always dreamed of.
These are the original veneers that have been around for quite a while. Traditional veneers are thin, wafer-like shells made from that we fashion from composite resin or porcelain. We custom make them for you and fit them snugly over the outside of your teeth.
Veneers have been used for decades by dentists worldwide to cover up imperfections like stains, cracks, and gaps. And while the enamel that protects your teeth is supposed to last a lifetime, acidic food and drink like coffee and citrus fruit can weaken it.
As your enamel wears down, the yellow dentin underneath it starts to show, and your teeth become yellow. This can make you and your teeth look much older. It can also tell the world that you don’t care for your teeth.
Dental veneers work to cover up your stains and exposed dentin, restoring a youthful whiteness and shine to your teeth.
Bioclear: The new veneers
With the original veneers, you have to have your teeth damaged to have them fitted. We shave away any of your remaining healthy enamel. The decision to have veneers is a permanent one. Once your veneers are fitted, they’re permanent. That’s why we like Bioclear better. Unlike the old system, we don’t need to shave off your enamel with Bioclear.
We start your Bioclear appointment by creating a three-dimensional matrix to encase your tooth so that it’s completely sealed and preserved. And we use an injection of composite material that’s stronger than regular dental bonding, and smoother than traditional porcelain veneers.
Bioclear fixes the triangular or vertical spaces between your teeth, stains, cracks, chips, undersized teeth, teeth with jagged or scalloped edges, and teeth that are worn down or transparent.
