VeneersDental veneers can improve your smile by transforming the appearance of cosmetically marred teeth. Whether you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked, discolored, or oddly shaped, veneers can fix the problem! Here at The Dental Spa in Woodbridge, VA, Dr. Marv Thomas, Dr. Famaz Jabarri, and Dr. Rifhat Khan are your cosmetic dentists for veneers.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin covers custom made to perfectly fit over the front surface of problem teeth. Once in place, veneers conceal any imperfections that had been plaguing the natural tooth. They are also permanently cemented to the teeth, allowing you to confidently bite and chew food just the same as with your natural teeth!

Veneers are custom created for each patient. Using a mold of your teeth, veneers are custom created in a dental lab, with their size and shape customized for the best fit. The color is also customized to match your existing teeth for a completely natural look. When the veneers are ready, they are sent from the lab back to your dentist’s office where they can be permanently placed your teeth.

How Veneers Help

Veneers can transform teeth from problematic to flawless, giving you a smile that you love. Here at our Woodbridge office, your cosmetic dentist can help you decide if veneers are the right cosmetic dentistry option for achieving the smile you desire. Some of the issues that veneers can correct include:

  • Chipped or cracked areas
  • Stains and discolorations
  • Rough and uneven tooth surfaces
  • Small spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Teeth with an odd or unusual shape

What's an actor's most important feature? According to Vivica A. Fox, whose most recent big-screen role was in Independence Day: Resurgence, it's what you see right up front.

"On screen, your smile and your eyes are the most inviting things that bring the audience in" she said. "Especially if you play the hot chick."

But like lots of people, Vivica reached a point where she felt her smile needed a little help in order to look its best. That's when she turned to a popular cosmetic dental treatment.

"I got veneers years ago," Ms. Fox told Dear Doctor magazine in a recent interview, "just because I had some gapping that probably only I noticed."

What exactly are dental veneers? Essentially, they are thin shells of lustrous porcelain that are permanently attached to the front surfaces of the teeth. Tough, lifelike and stain-resistant, they can cover up a number of defects in your smile — including stains, chips, cracks, and even minor spacing irregularities like the ones Vivica had.

Veneers have become the treatment of choice for Hollywood celebs — and lots of regular folks too — for many reasons. Unlike some treatments that can take many months, it takes just a few appointments to have veneers placed on your teeth. Because they are custom made just for you, they allow you to decide how bright you want your smile to be: anywhere from a natural pearly hue to a brilliant "Hollywood white." Best of all, they are easy to maintain, and can last for many years with only routine care.

To place traditional veneers, it's necessary to prepare the tooth by removing a small amount (a millimeter or two) of its enamel surface. This keeps it from feeling too big — but it also means the treatment can't be reversed, so once you get veneers, you'll always have them. In certain situations, "no-prep" or minimal-prep veneers, which require little or no removal of tooth enamel, may be an option for some people.

Veneers aren't the only way to create a better smile: Teeth whitening, crowns or orthodontic work may also be an alternative. But for many, veneers are the preferred option. What does Vivica think of hers?

"I love my veneers!" she declared, noting that they have held up well for over a decade.
