Porcelain Veneers in Owings Mills MD

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a permanent restoration. They consist of ultra-thin layers of porcelain that looks and feels like natural teeth. The medical-grade material is an advanced treatment option. It offers durable results and will resist stains.

Our dental care team uses porcelain veneers to restore:

  • Aging teeth that have worn down
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Stained, discolored, or yellowed teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Stained, unsightly or washed-out fillings
  • Misshapen or crooked teeth to close spaces

We recommend porcelain veneers in our Owings Mills dental office for patients who want a permanent way to cover their cosmetic problems. Veneers are permanent because we must prepare your teeth during treatment. During this preparation, we remove a portion of the natural tooth structure. We etch into the tooth to ensure the veneers adhere to the tooth.

This preparation process ensures that your veneers do not look or feel bulky. However, this process is irreversible. You must commit to permanently covering your teeth with veneers, or choose another treatment instead.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Learn more about veneers with answers to these common questions:

Can I still get tooth cavities with porcelain veneers?

Even with veneers covering your teeth, there is always a chance of getting cavities. A veneer can protect the tooth enamel that it is covering, but veneers don’t cover the whole tooth. However, it is only as effective as how you care for your teeth. Practice excellent oral hygiene, floss, and visit the dentist regularly to protect yourself from cavities.

Do porcelain veneers stain?

Porcelain veneers do not stain or get darker over time. Dental porcelain is a stain-resistant material. You will not have to worry about your veneer getting yellow and standing out from your other teeth. Additionally, you can’t whiten porcelain so consider a teeth whitening procedure at the time of treatment.

Will dental insurance cover veneers?

Dental insurance will not cover the cost of porcelain veneers for cosmetic reasons. However, insurance may cover placing a veneer to repair a broken, infected, or chipped tooth. Discuss the procedure with your dentist and insurance provider to learn what they can cover. We also provide affordable financing options and payment plans to help anyone get dental care.

Do veneers break easily?

Porcelain veneers are strong like natural teeth. However, they can break under pressure. Breaks, chips, and cracks are uncommon, but they can happen. Do not use your veneer and teeth to open things, chew on ice, or bite anything hard that’s not food.

Also, do not directly bite on hard foods with your veneers. Chew with your back teeth like normal instead. Veneers cover the front teeth, which are thinner than the back teeth.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are strong, but they may need replacement down the road. They can last from ten to thirty years, sometimes longer. Patients should take good care of their veneers because they can break with extreme pressure. Dental veneers are not invincible.

Can you drink coffee with porcelain veneers?

We advise patients with porcelain veneers to avoid coffee. Veneers are stain-resistant. However, your natural teeth are not. Too much coffee can stain your teeth, leaving your veneers brighter and make them stand out when you smile.
