Porcelain Veneers – Silver Spring, MD

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape & color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful & attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth & smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns & the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent & may someday need replacement. They are very durable & will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing & shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken & a shade (color) will then be chosen by you & the dentist.

On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth & veneer & a special light beam is used to harden & set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing & regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
