If you take excellent care of your teeth and visit your dentist in Gaithersburg every six months for dental exams and teeth cleanings, it can be disheartening when you’re not happy with the appearance of your smile.
One of the most forgiving and versatile cosmetic dentistry options around is porcelain veneers. With veneers, you can often choose one cosmetic option to conceal multiple issues instead of numerous or varied treatments for several flaws.
What Are Porcelain Veneers in Gaithersburg, MD?
Porcelain veneers used to be one of the best-kept secrets in Hollywood, but no more! Today, we offer veneers in our dental office, and our patients could not be happier.
A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain cemented over a treated tooth. It looks just like natural dental enamel but conceals so many flaws, including:
- Short and worn teeth
- Small gaps or unusual spacing
- Tooth shape abnormalities
- Stubborn stains and discoloration
- Gum to tooth ratio issues
- Mildly crooked teeth
Without cosmetic treatments like veneers, you would have to choose multiple options to achieve your best smile—maybe orthodontics for the mildly crooked teeth, teeth whitening for the discoloration, and laser surgery for the gummy smile.
And with veneers, you can treat a single tooth or multiple teeth. In the end, your left with a symmetrical smile that is portrait ready!
The Veneer Process
Because veneers have to be flush with your teeth and gums to look natural, your dentist removes a negligible bit of tooth enamel before cementing the restoration. This is not a painful process.
However, enamel removal means your veneers are permanent, so if you damage one in the future, it should always be replaced.
