Porcelain Veneers Glyndon, MD

Addressing cosmetic concerns that you have with your smile can do wonders for your self- confidence. At Baltimore Dental Co., we are proud to offer comprehensive cosmetic services to help our patients achieve their dream smiles. We offer porcelain veneers in Glyndon, MD to reach their goals.

If you are looking for a complete smile makeover or fixing that one front tooth that doesn’t match the rest, it may be time to consider porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic shells that attach to the front-facing portion of your teeth, essentially replacing your natural tooth with a more cosmetically desirable tooth.

Baltimore Dental Co. is happy to provide porcelain veneers as a treatment option for addressing a wide range of concerns. Many patients find that porcelain veneers are the perfect, minimally invasive treatment option for resolving their tooth damage and cosmetic concerns.

PORCELAIN VENEERS IN GLYNDON, MD

Patients use porcelain veneers to conceal major or minor cosmetic dental concerns. As a versatile treatment, veneers offer long-lasting results when patients suffer from various cosmetic problems. Dental veneers may be suggested if a patient is suffering from:

  • Tooth Discoloration: Sometimes, whitening is not an option. In these cases, the tooth/teeth need to be masked with other cosmetic dentistry treatments. Porcelain veneers are the perfect solution because porcelain is the perfect material to mimic the appearance of natural teeth.
  • Chipped or Worn-Down Teeth: A dental veneer can build back up a tooth that has damage due to excessive wear or that has been chipped. The veneer will cover the damaged portion making the tooth appear whole. This will improve the appearance of the tooth and also protect it from further damage.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Teeth that are out of alignment or have an irregular shape can benefit from porcelain veneers. Veneers can improve the shape, align the teeth, and create a straight smile. Aligning the teeth with veneers can also make it easier to clean in between the teeth.
  • Disproportional Teeth: Teeth that are different sizes can be made even in size, length, and shape with dental veneers. This will create a more balanced and attractive smile.
  • Gaps Between Teeth: Dr. Romay can use porcelain veneers to close small to moderate gaps between teeth. This will eliminate the need for orthodontic treatment. She will apply the veneers to the adjacent teeth to fill the gap, resulting in a more even and uniform smile.

HOW DOES A PORCELAIN VENEER WORK?

Picture a porcelain veneer like a mask for your tooth. It’s a thin shell made of porcelain, custom- designed to fit perfectly over the front surface of your tooth. Think of it as a sleek, durable cover that hides any imperfections, like chips, stains, or gaps, while giving your smile a supercharged upgrade.

THE PORCELAIN VENEER PROCESS

The first step is meeting with our team at Baltimore Dental Co. to discuss how we can improve your smile. Your dentist will listen to you regarding any concerns related to stained teeth, fixing chipped teeth, improving tooth positioning, closing the gaps, and creating a more uniform smile. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, our team will custom design a beautiful smile to meet your cosmetic dental needs.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Smile Design Records: First, we will use a digital scanner to create a 3D photograph ofyour mouth. Our team will use this data while working with the lab to custom design

    your smile.

  2. Test Drive: Our team will use a personalized template with temporary materials so thatyou may test drive your smile in the office! This will allow you to visualize what

    porcelain veneers can do to improve your appearance.

  3. Preparation: Once you are confident with your new smile design, a small layer of yourtooth enamel is gently removed, as needed, to make room for the veneer. Don’t worry,

    it’s just a tiny bit to ensure a snug fit.

  4. Customization: A final digital scan of your natural tooth structure is taken to create yourtailor-made porcelain veneers! Any additional details that you would like to add related to the exact shape, size, and color can be sent to the lab technician at this time. This ensures a seamless blend with your smile.
  5. Bonding: Once your custom veneers are ready, we have one final try in so that you may confirm your satisfaction with your new, beautiful smile. Once approved, the porcelain veneers are carefully bonded to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive.

PORCELAIN VENEERS FAQs

Dr. Romay is happy to answer any questions you might have about this treatment option. Read through our frequently asked questions sections to learn more about porcelain veneers.

WILL PEOPLE BE ABLE TO NOTICE MY PORCELAIN VENEER?

Your dentist will design your porcelain veneer to blend in with your natural smile. The porcelain material reflects light similarly to your surrounding teeth, meaning it should not stand out within your smile. People should only notice your improved smile aesthetics after you get veneers.

HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY PORCELAIN VENEER?

Porcelain veneers do not require any additional care beyond your regular oral hygiene routine. You can maintain your porcelain veneer if you continue brushing, flossing, and scheduling regular oral hygiene and wellness visits with your dentist.

HOW MANY PORCELAIN VENEERS DO I NEED?

This all depends on your cosmetic goals. Dr. Romay and the team at Baltimore Dental Co. can provide guidance on how many veneers would most benefit your smile.

DO PORCELAIN VENEERS BREAK EASILY?

A veneer can break under too much pressure, just like a natural tooth can. However, veneers are so strong that breaking them is uncommon. Porcelain veneers are amazingly durable while being incredibly thin.

WHY DO PORCELAIN VENEERS FALL OFF?

Over-preparation and poor bonding processes can cause porcelain veneers and crowns to fall off. To guarantee that veneers fit well, only a very small amount of tooth enamel will be removed. It is important to treat your veneers with care. Unappropriated use, like opening a bag with your teeth, may cause a porcelain veneer to de-bond. As long as the veneer and supporting tooth are healthy and intact, the veneer can simply be re-bonded.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO GET VENEERS?

Since children’s teeth continue to develop into adulthood, our dentists often advise patients to wait until they are at least 18 years old before investing in their first set of veneers.

ARE VENEERS HIGH MAINTENANCE?

We love veneers for their instant gratification and low maintenance upkeep. Call us today to discuss if you would be a good candidate for veneers.
