Do you want a brighter smile but have deep tooth stains? Are you looking for an effective treatment to address cosmetically crooked teeth? Dental veneers are thin, porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the tooth surface. They can create a seamless look in the smile line or the teeth that show when smiling. We use dental veneers made of porcelain ceramic, reflecting light for a natural look. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental service that we offer in Gaithersburg, MD.
Porcelain Veneers in Gaithersburg, MD
To begin veneer treatment, we remove a small amount of enamel from the front of the teeth. Preparing the teeth for veneers ensures that they do not look or feel bulky. Then, we take digital impressions of teeth to send to a local dental lab. At the dental lab, technicians create custom dental veneers out of porcelain ceramic. Once the dental veneers are complete, we ensure they are each tooth’s correct size and shape. Finally, we apply bonding material to the tooth, place the veneers, and cure them with a special light.
Immediately after you receive your new porcelain veneers, avoid eating hard or crunchy foods. Do not use tobacco products or consume staining foods or beverages. When you brush your veneers, gently brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Abrasive particles in whitening toothpaste can damage your veneers. Aggressive brushing can also wear down your natural teeth and dental veneers.
Dental Veneer FAQs
Are you interested in veneers but want to know more? Read answers to these popular questions about veneers:
How long do dental veneers last?
Dental veneers can last over 15 years with the proper dental care. However, because we need to prepare natural teeth for veneers, patients will need to replace their old veneers over time with new veneers. If patients cannot commit to veneers, we may recommend other options like dental crowns or tooth bonding treatment.
What is the cost of porcelain veneers?
Because every patient is different, the cost of their treatment will vary on their specific needs. The number of veneers, as well as the material and placement, impact the cost of veneers. We also provide financing options for our patients. They can pay for their treatment in increments or see if dental insurance covers part of their treatment.
Are dental veneers painful?
Patients should not feel any pain during their dental veneer treatment. It may take some time for patients to get used to their new veneers. However, they should not feel severe discomfort or pain wearing their veneers. Although we remove part of the tooth structure during treatment, we numb the tooth beforehand so patients will not feel anything during the procedure.
