Porcelain Veneer Dentistry near Silver Spring and Baltimore
Veneers provide a wonderful way to brighten your smile and boost your confidence. Made of porcelain (or sometimes from composite resin), veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells, which are custom designed and are placed over broken, crooked, chipped or stained teeth. Patients with irregular gaps between their teeth can benefit from veneers as well.
The procedure usually involves removing a very small amount of enamel from the original tooth, and then bonding the veneer to that tooth using a special glue. Patients may opt to have veneers placed on several of their teeth, depending on their needs and the desired result.
Aside from the immediate cosmetic benefits, there are practical advantages to getting porcelain veneers – they’re stain resistant, durable and relatively quick to implement. With proper care, veneers can last for several decades.
