Discover how this simple cosmetic procedure could completely transform your smile.

A smile is one of the first features someone is likely to notice about you during a first encounter. Whether you’re preparing for an upcoming job interview or you are organizing a weekend date night, you may be taking some time to revamp your appearance. Have Veneersyou stopped to consider how your smile might play into your transformation? Not all cosmetic dental procedures have to be invasive or time-consuming. Your Westminster, MD dentist can give you a more radiant smile in no time.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain that cover over the front of your teeth to hide small dental flaws.

What flaws can dental veneers hide?

If you suffer from minor chips, cracks or misshapen teeth, overcrowding, gaps between teeth or severe discolorations, than getting dental veneers can greatly improve the appearance of your smile by hiding all of these imperfections.

How are dental veneers applied?

Before the veneers are placed on your teeth, we will remove a small amount of your natural tooth’s enamel to make room for the veneers. While this process isn’t painful and won’t require anesthesia, it’s important to note that once the enamel has been removed, the procedure is irreversible.

Once this tooth preparation is complete, we will match the dental veneers to the rest of your smile to choose the proper shade. Then we will apply a specialized dental cement between the veneer and your tooth and direct a laser on your smile to harden the cement and permanently attach the veneers.

How do I care for dental veneers?

One of the benefits of getting dental veneers is that they do not require special care. You can treat them just as you would natural teeth, so your brushing and flossing regime does not need to change. However, you should continue to maintain good oral hygiene. While dental veneers themselves cannot develop cavities, it’s still possible that cavities can form around the veneers. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to keep up with at-home oral care, as well as routine dental cleanings.

If you’re interested in finding out whether dental veneers are right for your smile goals, then call Dr. Patrick Gallagher III, DDS, your Westminster, MD dentist to schedule a consultation.
