What are veneers?
Veneers fit over the front of your tooth to mask its imperfections. This important dental restoration can totally change the appearance of one, several or all of your teeth, including their size, shape and even color. Made from porcelain, veneers resemble your natural teeth almost exactly, ensuring the veneers blend into your smile without issue. Your dentist will also take the color of your natural teeth into account and work with the dental laboratory who creates the veneers to ensure they will match your teeth perfectly.
How can veneers help my teeth?
Dental veneers benefit patients who have one or more of the following dental issues:
- chipped teeth
- cracked teeth
- misshapen teeth
- discolored teeth
- yellowed teeth
- slightly overcrowded teeth
- slightly under crowded teeth
If you feel as though you could benefit from dental veneers, you should contact Mendelson Family Dentistry to schedule a consultation with your dentist. There, you can determine if veneers are your best course of treatment and best personal choice for you.
Dental Veneers in Owings Mills, MD
Dental veneers normally require two dental appointments. The first appointment requires your dentist to prepare the teeth, rendering the procedure irreversible and permanent. This preparation involves removing a small portion of enamel from the surface of the tooth in order to better the bond between the veneer, the adhesive and your tooth. The dental laboratory needs about two weeks to create your veneers. After this time, your dentist’s office will receive the finished restorations and schedule a second appointment to place the veneers permanently onto your teeth.
