Porcelain Veneers Silver Spring, MD

Porcelain Veneers in Silver Spring, MD at Dechter and Moy Dentistry

Porcelain veneers can offer patients the ability to enhance their smile with subtle or dramatic results. Dechter and Moy Dentistry offers porcelain veneers in Silver Spring, MD. Dentists make veneers from an ultra-thin ceramic material, a composite resin, or a dental porcelain material to replicate the appearance of natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers permanently secure to the front and sides of teeth. Veneers reflect natural light in the same way your natural teeth do, so they are virtually indiscernible from real teeth. These qualities provide a result that is hard to distinguish from your natural teeth. Dental veneers will complement your smile, all while improving both aesthetics and oral health!

Patients often say that our dentists exceed their smile makeover expectations with veneers. This versatile treatment has been a popular service for many years. Use porcelain veneers to address a range of issues with lasting results:

  • Stained or discolored teeth: Our dentist can place veneers over teeth to change the color and shade of your smile permanently. They are a great solution for patients with tooth stains that are considered too resistant to professional teeth whitening.
  • Gaps between teeth:¬†We can close gaps with veneers to transform the look of your smile, improve bite function, and speech.
  • Damaged teeth: Our porcelain veneers will both stabilize the health of your teeth, and give you back a flawless smile. We will secure them to repair chipped or damaged teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth: Do you have mildly rotated or oddly shaped teeth? We can use dental veneers to reshape your teeth.

There are many type of veneers available, but we create them 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 During Porcelain Veneers Treatment?

The process for placing porcelain veneers will require 2-3 visits with us to complete. After a consultation to discuss your goals and determine that porcelain veneers are the right solution for you, we will schedule a visit for preparing the teeth and taking impressions. We customize veneers to your smile and mouth specifications.

Tooth preparation involves “etching” the teeth to enable the veneers to adhere securely. To do this, Dr. Dechter or Dr. Moy will carefully remove a small amount of the tooth’s enamel. Once the teeth are prepared, dental impressions will be taken for use in the dental lab that will fabricate your custom restorations. Temporary veneers are typically placed to protect the teeth until your custom veneers are complete.

At the next and final visit, we will permanently attach your new porcelain veneers. First, your dentist will gently place the veneers and work with you to make sure they are comfortable, meet your expectations, and will fit securely on the teeth. Any final adjustments will be made before they are cemented into place and polished.

Maintaining your porcelain veneers needs a good daily oral hygiene routine and regular dental care visits. We will show you how to brush and floss before you leave, so you can keep your smile stable and healthy for as long as possible.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Is the procedure for getting veneers painful?

Most of the time, dentists use some anesthetic to numb the mouth when putting in veneers. You will not feel pain during the procedure. Most patients who have less than 4 veneers put in report little to no pain during the operation.

Will teeth veneers fall off?

Veneers are not prone to falling off without reason. If they do not fit right, they may fall off or slide in your mouth. Over time as veneers begin to age, they may slip off your tooth. If this happens save your veneers and bring them with you to your dentist.

Can you use mouthwash with veneers?

Most dentists recommend that patients with veneers avoid using mouthwash. Over time the alcohol in mouthwash can eat away at the surface of the veneers, causing their lifespan to shorten.

Can your teeth rot under veneers?

Teeth under veneers are susceptible to rotting. Plaque is commonly located under veneers if placed incorrectly. Plaque eats away at teeth creating tiny holes in them that cause tooth decay. Patients with veneers should practice a consistent oral care routine and schedule regular dental cleanings.

Will porcelain veneers need to be replaced?

Over time veneers may become loose or stained. When this occurs many patients choose to replace them. Replace your veneers if damage and decay take hold of the underlying teeth.
