Veneers are porcelain shells, similar in shape and thickness to a fingernail, that your dentist attaches to the fronts of your teeth to improve their appearance. You can get just one veneer or several, but they work best for teeth in the front of your mouth that aren’t under much pressure when you chew.
At Perfect Smiles of Reston, Dr. Darvishian personally designs your veneers and makes sure they fit exactly against the natural contours of your teeth. Veneers are a permanent treatment, so once you get them you’ll need to have them for the rest of your life.
Depending on the type you get and how well you take care of them, you’ll probably need to replace them at some point.
To place your veneers, Dr. Darvishian prepares your teeth by removing some of the enamel from the front surface. She removes enough thickness for the veneer to replace it. Then, she bonds the veneer to the tooth after double checking its size and fit.

Teeth whitening, another cosmetic service, can make your smile brighter. However, you might find that coming in regularly for touch-ups is a bit inconvenient for maintaining a white smile.
Veneers can cover stains and discoloration permanently, and you can select the exact shade of white you want them to be.
At Perfect Smiles of Reston, Dr. Darvishian offers veneers in just one appointment. While other dental offices require two or more visits for high-quality veneers, Perfect Smiles of Reston streamlines the process using the latest and most advanced technologies, including computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), available in cosmetic dentistry.
