Are Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers Right for You?

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry veneers may be the dental care solution for you. Learn how these dental wonders can improve your appearance and confidence.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, customized shells that are placed over teeth to greatly improve their appearance. A veneer dentist mainly places them to correct cosmetic concerns, such as chipped teeth, poorly-shaped teeth, or severe dental staining. But they can also be used to treat severe dental issues like gum disease. Cosmetic dentistry veneers can be made out of either porcelain or a composite resin. While porcelain veneers are more natural-looking and stain-resistant, the composite veneers are thinner and require less removal of natural tooth structure. Your dental care Baltimore specialist will determine the best type for your needs. But whichever kind you get, they are both often preferable to your other options of cosmetic dental bonding and dental crowns.

Three Simple Steps To Get Veneers

Both porcelain and composite veneers can usually be placed in only three visits to your dental care Baltimore practice. Realize that veneers may be more costly than both cosmetic dental bonding and dental crowns, but veneers tend to look better and last longer, which make their cost completely worth it. If you opt for cosmetic dentistry veneers, the procedure involves the following steps:

  1. Preparation – At your preliminary visit, X-rays are taken to create your custom veneers. Next, your veneer dentist will take an impression of your teeth that gets sent to a special dental lab to prepare the perfect veneers.
  2. Placement – As soon as the veneers are ready, you will return to the veneer dentist for placement. After checking the veneers for ideal color and fit, your teeth will be well cleaned and gently roughed to adhere the shells. Finally, the veneers are attached to the teeth with a special adhesive that is set by an ultraviolet light.
  3. Protection – Your veneer dentist will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure ideal placement, comfort, and beauty. At this time, you’ll be advised about the need for regular oral hygiene to keep your veneers looking good and lasting for years.
