Cosmetic dentistry has seen many remarkable advances over the past few years. Modern dentistry has made amazing strides in the realm of smile design. Good news is that you don’t have to be a celebrity to experience the amazing benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Datta, the well known cosmetic dentistry and dental implant expert at Ridgetop Dental’s centre for dental implants and cosmetic dentistry in Northern Virginia makes it possible for you to enjoy the most natural looking, gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted. In this article, Ridgetop Dental’s cosmetic dentistry and dental implant experts answer some important questions about Cosmetic Veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?

A ‘Veneer’ is basically a thin covering that is used to make surface of something look better. It has the exact same meaning in dentistry as well. Cosmetic Veneers are extremely thin custom-made shells that have completely natural appearance. They are placed on the front of a tooth, giving it a better appearance.

In what ways can Veneers improve the appearance of my teeth?


As we get older, our teeth start yellowing. Antibiotics, such as tetracycline can also cause tooth discoloration, which is quite hard to remove. Apart from that our poor dietary choices also affect the color of our teeth. In all the above mentioned cases, veneers can be very helpful in giving your teeth pearly white appearance that is hard to achieve with other tooth whitening procedures.


Wear and tear on our teeth can make them look shorter, flatter and rough along the edges. Expert cosmetic dentists like Dr. Datta from Ridgetop Dental’s centre for cosmetic dentistry in Sterling, VA can redesign your teeth using veneers to incorporate features that enhance the appearance of your teeth.


If your teeth are too small, veneers can be used to make them appear larger, thus giving you new confidence to smile.

Alignment & Spacing

If you have minor gap between your teeth or slightly misaligned teeth, veneers can make slight corrections, giving you a beautiful smile in a shorter time.

Complex cases of misalignment and gapped teeth require orthodontic treatment, sometimes, combination of both is needed for the best results.

Steps involved in correcting your teeth using dental veneers

  • Firstly, you need to figure out, what needs to be changed about your smile. Discuss with your cosmetic dentist, what expectations you have from your smile correction treatment. At Ridgetop Dental’s centre for cosmetic dentistry and
dental implants in Northern Virginia, Dr. Datta personally meets all the patients to know their expectations and also suggests what appeals to your personality.
