Improve Your Smile With Veneers For Teeth In Monkton
Do you have chips, cracks, or a worn down appearance and are uncomfortable about smiling? Would you like a way to make sure your smile is the best it can be?
Although a porcelain veneer may be similar to a dental crown, they are very different. Porcelain veneers are custom-designed shells of tooth-like ceramic material applied over the surface of a tooth. Porcelain Veneers can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment, cracks, chips and spacing gaps. Dental veneers fall into the realm of cosmetic dentistry because they create shapely, straight and beautiful white smiles. Additionally, the ceramic used in porcelain veneers today is able to replicate the translucent quality of natural teeth. The end result is a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Our well-trained Monkton dentist team perform this service for the Sparks MD area.
No matter what your cosmetic dental issues are, dental veneers can solve most or even all of them.
- Natural wear and tear: It’s completely normal for teeth to wear down as people get older. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance. Having a dental veneer bonded to your tooth can brighten your smile dramatically.
- Genetics: Some people may inherit a smile with crowded or crooked teeth. Others may have abnormally spaced teeth with gaps that increase with age. Veneers for teeth can give you a uniform, lovely smile.
- Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from general wear and tear or tooth grinding (bruxing). A dental veneer can give you a “new” tooth that will look entirely natural in your smile.
- Worn enamel: Veneers for teeth can help you if you have worn enamel. As you age, your teeth’s natural enamel may become discolored, worn and dulled. Sometimes, this wearing out is a natural process. Often it is a result of your personal consumption habits: drinking coffee, soft drinks, and tea. Medication use and smoking also contribute to a wearing-down of tooth enamel. Having a dental veneer can create a smile you will be proud to show off.
Restorative Benefit of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can also serve in a restorative capacity by protecting the surface of a damaged tooth. In some instances, veneers for teeth may replace the need for a dental crown.
Because they are so thin, porcelain veneers usually do not require any major tooth reshaping when bonded to the tooth. Once bonded into place, veneers for teeth are durable and strong. Brushing, flossing and practicing other oral hygiene techniques regularly will keep your dental veneer looking and feeling its best. Your dentist may also discourage you from eating certain foods and also recommend wearing a protective appliance while you sleep (especially if you grind your teeth).
Your porcelain veneers will be custom-made to fit your unique smile. Because of this, a series of appointments will be necessary to ensure a match in color (with the rest of your teeth) and, of course, the perfect fit. And if you would like the veneer to match whiter teeth, ask about our teeth whitening service. Feel free to ask any other questions you have about porcelain veneers. We are happy to answer them.
After your porcelain veneers have been placed, you will love how they look and feel just like your natural teeth. You will finally get to enjoy the smile you always wished you had.
