Whether your teeth are damaged due to decay or stained due to coffee, porcelain veneers can provide patients with the smile they have always desired. Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-colored shells that are permanently secured to the front and sides of the teeth. They are typically made of composite resin or dental porcelain material to replicate the appearance of the natural teeth. If you are looking for a treatment to achieve the smile of your dreams, consider porcelain veneers.
What Are The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are designed to enhance the appearance of your teeth. In many cases, porcelain veneers can be used to address these common cosmetic dental concerns:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Veneers are created using a stain and decay resistant material, making it the ideal solution to transform a damaged smile. Porcelain veneers are designed to last many years with proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist office.
What Should I Expect?
On average, the process for creating and placing porcelain veneers will require 2-3 visits to our Silver Spring dentist office. We will discuss your cosmetic goals and assess the condition of your teeth to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you. Once the plan is established, the teeth are prepared, and we take molds of the teeth and send them to a local dental lab for fabrication.
At the next visit, the veneers are carefully placed over the teeth. We will evaluate the shape, fit, and color of the veneers to ensure they are meet your expectations. If necessary, we will make any final adjustments before polishing your new veneers.
You can enjoy your new smile immediately after your appointment. It is important to maintain healthy oral habits, maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine, and visit the dentist regularly to maintain the integrity of your veneers.
