Dr. D. Gordon Rye can change the shape, color, and length of patients’ teeth with the application of ultra-thin shells of porcelain known as veneers. Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit perfectly over a patient’s original teeth, and the procedure can be completed in just two visits to our office. Dr. Rye often uses veneers to cover chipped or discolored teeth, and to fill minor gaps by creating a veneer that is slightly wider than the natural tooth. He also uses veneers to add length to teeth that are too short.

Dr. Rye can use porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of one tooth, several teeth, or an entire row of front teeth for a complete smile makeover. In the first stage of the veneers process, the teeth receiving veneers will be prepared and an impression will be made so that a veneer can be created to fit snugly over each tooth. During a second appointment, Dr. Rye bonds the veneers tightly to the prepared teeth. Once the application is complete, we gently buff the porcelain veneers and surrounding teeth for a healthy-looking shine.

Because the porcelain is translucent, much like a real tooth, porcelain veneers are extremely natural looking and blend in with surrounding teeth. In fact, they look so natural that many patients admit to forgetting they even have them, and simply notice a straight, beautiful, and natural smile! Patients from the Washington, D.C. / Great Falls, Virginia area visit Dr. Rye for porcelain veneers and the outstanding results he consistently achieves.
