What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are permanent dental restorations that cover the front and sides of a tooth and are extremely durable. They are ultra-thin, shell-like coverings for your teeth that will look and feel like a natural tooth. The medical grade material offers advanced treatment to meet your cosmetic needs and durable results that will resist stains. Porcelain veneers are custom made for you in a dental lab and Owings Mills, MD dentist, Dr. Lazer uses them to:
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth
- Change the shape or length of teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening
The Porcelain Veneer Process
The procedure will require 2 to 3 visits for consultation, treatment planning and final placement. Dr. Lazer will analyze your smile to find the shape and fit to best suit your unique smile at his Owings Mills, MD cosmetic dentistry office.
At your next visit, your teeth will be prepared by removing a minimal amount of tooth surface structure for optimal, comfortable placement of the veneers. Dental impressions will then be taken to be used in fabricating your porcelain veneers. Your porcelain veneers will then be custom made in a dental lab.
At your last visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Dr. Lazer will secure the porcelain veneers to your teeth using a color matched resin for a permanent restoration that is designed to last for many years, resisting stains and damage due to the quality of the materials used.
Regular dental visits for preventive care will provide the opportunity for Dr. Lazer to monitor the condition of your porcelain veneers. With good oral hygiene and proper routine dental care, your porcelain veneers can last for many years.
