Porcelain Veneers in Richmond, VA

A bright smile can influence your life in so many ways. For example, it can increase your self-esteem and confidence, which can even impact your career and relationships. A smile you feel confident about can help you feel more at ease, not only with yourself, but with friends and strangers, too.  At Capital Dental Design we believe in optimal oral health and the power of your smile being a reflection of your positivity, and a vehicle for joy. As well as helping you realize your aesthetic vision for your idea of a perfect smile, we are fully committed to helping you develop and maintain a smile that is as radiantly healthy as possible.

One of the most effective treatment options for correcting an imperfect smile are porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a variety of issues, including correcting small chips or cracks in your teeth, filling small gaps between your front teeth, correcting small stains, or correcting misshapen teeth. Regardless of your reason for needing veneers, the end result will be a beautiful smile that will enhance your facial features, take years off your appearance, and give you greater confidence.

We proudly serve patients throughout Richmond and the surrounding area, including neighborhoods like Southampton, Stratford Hills, Westover Hills, Bon Air, Libbie and Grove, Church Hill, The Fan, Westham, Museum District, and Mooreland Farms.

At Capital Dental Design, we are committed to providing you with effective, considerate care and helping you get the bright, beautiful smile you have always wanted!

Porcelain Veneer Process

The porcelain veneers process will begin with an initial consultation, during which Dr. Forbes will evaluate and scan your mouth to determine if porcelain veneers are the right treatment option for you. If so, Dr. Forbes will take pictures of your smile and evaluate the shape and color of your tooth so the restoration will look and feel natural and not disturb your bite alignment. Next, we will numb the tooth and remove a small amount of enamel. Dental sedation is also available to ensure you experience minimal discomfort and are able to remain relaxed while the procedure is performed.

Once your tooth is prepped, we will take and send impressions and photos to our partner lab where your porcelain veneer will be designed. While the veneer is being crafted, we will place a temporary restoration so you can continue eating a regular diet and avoid discomfort. Once your veneer is finished, we will remove the temporary restoration and attach the veneer.

  • Veneers correct numerous problems at once, eliminating the time and expense that would be necessary for multiple cosmetic treatments.
  • Porcelain veneers are available in a range of colors that guarantee your smile looks natural and sparkles.

Cost of Porcelain Veneers

Several factors will determine the total cost of your porcelain veneers, such as the number of teeth that require veneers, whether multiple procedures and appointments are necessary, if dental sedation is required, and whether the procedure is covered (and if so, how much) by your dental insurance plan. Prior to scheduling any procedure, we will discuss the anticipated costs, verify your benefits (if applicable) to determine out-of-pocket costs, and answer any questions you may have about billing.

If you are not covered under a dental insurance plan, or if you are simply interested in saving money, consider joining the Capital Dental Design Membership Plan. Although we make every effort to keep our services affordable for all patients, joining our membership plan allows us to save you even more money by covering the cost of preventive care such as cleanings, exams, and routine x-rays. We also offer discounts of 10-15% on other dental services offered at our clinic. To learn more about our membership plan, payment options, or anticipated costs, contact our office today!
