Create a New Smile with Porcelain Veneers

How porcelain veneers from your Lynchburg, Virginia dentist can enhance your smileveneers

If you don’t like the smile that nature gave you, it’s time to create a new one! You can create a smile that is uniquely beautiful and uniquely yours, thanks to porcelain veneers! Dr. Kevin Midkiff, family and cosmetic dentist in Lynchburg, Virginia wants to introduce you to what porcelain veneers can do for your smile.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments available. They can fix major aesthetic dental problems like these:

  • Unevenly spaced teeth due to genetics
  • Excessively worn down teeth due to aging
  • Damaged, broken or cracked teeth due to trauma
  • Yellowed, darkened teeth due to aging
  • Badly stained or discolored teeth due to lifestyle or medications

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment for many reasons. When you choose porcelain veneers, you can count on:

  • A naturally beautiful appearance; porcelain is translucent and reflects light, just like your natural teeth.
  • A long-lasting result; with proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years.
  • An easy care treatment; your porcelain veneers will resist staining.
  • A conservative treatment; porcelain veneers conserve the maximum amount of tooth structure.

Porcelain veneers are thin sheaths of beautiful, translucent porcelain which are cemented over the front surfaces of your teeth. They typically require two to three appointments, starting with a consultation appointment. At your consultation appointment, Dr. Midkiff will discuss how your new veneers will look and what you can expect from treatment.

Your second appointment is the tooth preparation appointment, during which a minimal amount of tooth structure is removed, usually just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Molds of your teeth are taken and sent off to the dental laboratory where your veneers are created.

Your veneers are completed and sent back to Dr. Midkiff. After he receives them, he will permanently cement them, and you have a new smile, created just for you!
