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. If you are looking for a complete smile makeover, it may be time to consider porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are attached to the front-facing portion of your teeth, essentially replacing your natural tooth with a more cosmetically desirable tooth.

Dr. Leah Romay 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

Porcelain veneers are used to conceal major or minor concerns like gaps between teeth, tooth stains, chips, or cracks. Acting as a covering for your natural tooth, the veneer cosmetically replaces the affected tooth while still allowing you to maintain the functionality of your natural tooth beneath it. Porcelain veneers are very thin, meaning that only a small amount of enamel removal is required to make space for the veneer. Porcelain veneers are considered a durable and highly customizable cosmetic treatment that can meet your dental health or cosmetic goals with personalized results.

During an initial consultation , we will evaluate the condition of your teeth, discuss your aesthetic goals and explore the most suitable treatment options. Dr. Romay is happy to answer any questions you might have about this treatment option. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers:

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Will people be able to notice my porcelain veneer?

The porcelain veneer is designed 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. The only thing that people should notice after you’ve gotten veneers is your improved smile aesthetics.

How should I care for my porcelain veneer?

Porcelain veneers do not require any additional care beyond your regular oral hygiene routine. As long as you continue to brush, floss and schedule regular oral hygiene and wellness visits with your dentist, your porcelain veneer will be maintained.

How many porcelain veneers do I need?

This all depends on your cosmetic and budgetary goals. Many patients are able to resolve their cosmetic concerns with one veneer used to conceal a problematic tooth that distracts from their smile. However, some patients may find themselves wanting a full mouth of veneers. Dr. Romay can provide guidance on how many veneers she thinks 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. It is very uncommon for them to break, but it is possible.

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 on the tooth and at the gumline, only a very small amount of tooth enamel will require removal. Too much preparation results in veneers that are loose and fall off.

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 16 to 18 years old before investing in their first set of veneers.

Are veneers high maintenance?

For people with a range of dental issues, such as cracked, chipped, or missing teeth, porcelain veneers offer a minimal maintenance treatment. They can be applied immediately and endure for years with little upkeep. Call us today, to discuss if you would be a good candidate for veneers.
