Do you feel as though your teeth are subpar? If you have ever wished for a brand new smile, you are in luck. Dental veneers are a permanent and effective way to change the shape, size, length, and even color of your teeth.

How do dental veneers work? 
Dental veneers fit over the surface of a tooth to mask its imperfections, stains or improve its shape. Veneers can improve the look of chipped, cracked, discolored, yellowed, overcrowded or under crowded teeth. A dental laboratory creates each veneer separately and customizes them to fit into your smile based on an impression of your natural teeth. Made from porcelain, dental veneers have similar light-reflecting qualities as natural teeth and are stain-resistant. Veneers are a durable dental restoration made to last many years with the proper care.

Creating a New Smile With Dental Veneers in Westminster, MD 
Veneers usually require only two dental appointments. The first appointment gives your dentist an opportunity to take an impression of your mouth which the laboratory uses to design your veneers. Additionally, this appointment is your time to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have. Your dentist then prepares the teeth by shaving a tiny amount of enamel from their surfaces. Temporary veneers protect your teeth until the dental laboratory completes the final restorations. At your second appointment, your dentist removes the temporary veneers then fits, adheres and cleans up the permanent veneers.

Caring for Your Veneers 
A good candidate for dental veneers should have a strong at-home oral care routine. This is necessary to avoid complications like tooth decay or gum disease which could shorten the life of your veneers. Caring for your veneers is easy. Simply brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and floss at least once to keep both your veneers and natural teeth healthy between bi-annual dental examinations and cleanings.
