What you should know before getting veneers What if we told you that a beautiful, natural looking smile is obtainable with porcelain veneers?

If you have cracked, discolored, or crooked teeth, dental veneers can help improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers are designed to meet the specific needs of each patient and can help you achieve a long-lasting, natural looking smile. It is important to note that the dental veneers procedure is permanent, so be sure to talk with our dentists to explore all viable options.

Our team at Advanced Dental health in Hunt Valley, MD can work with you to explore all your options and determine if veneers are right for you. In this post, we will explore everything you need to know before getting veneers.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front and sides of the teeth. In many cases, dental porcelain is used because it closely resembles the appearance of the natural tooth enamel. In addition, each veneer is custom designed to meet the cosmetic goals of the patient. A well-crafted veneer can be color matched, shaped, and molded to create a seamless new smile.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

The cost of veneers is relative to the specific needs of the patient. Our team can work with you to explore all your payment options and choose an option that works for your budget and goals. Receiving porcelain veneers is an investment in your journey to a more beautiful smile.

Am I A Candidate For Veneers?

Ideally, those who want porcelain veneers should possess these key qualities:

  • Have a clear understanding of their cosmetic goals and expectation
  • Have structurally healthy teeth, free of decay and gum disease
  • Practice excellent oral hygiene techniques
  • Posses an adequate amount of healthy tooth enamel

The best way to determine candidacy is to schedule a cosmetic consultation with a trusted cosmetic dentist. Our team can consult with you and build a smile makeover plan that addresses all of your needs.

What Can Veneers Address?

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry solution that can address many common dental concerns. Patients choose veneers to:

  • Close gaps between the teeth
  • Brighten stain or discolored teeth
  • Straighten crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Repair fractured, cracked, and chipped teeth
  • Improve the overall appearance of the smile
  • Correct misshapen or uneven teeth

Due to the removal of a portion of your tooth enamel, receiving veneers is an irreversible process. For patients seeking a less permanent and an equally as effective solution, we offer dental bonding.

Depending on your cosmetic goals, budget, and expectations, we can work with you to determine whether veneers or dental bonding is the best solution for you.
