Do you have chipped or crooked teeth? Improve the aesthetics of your smile with porcelain veneers. This cosmetic treatment option can be used on one or more teeth to provide a smoother and brighter appearance. Dr. Suman Chibb and her professional team offer in-office treatment for patients with teeth that are stained, cracked, misshapen, discolored, crooked, chipped, or broken. There are also many benefits that porcelain veneers offer patients.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a natural-looking solution for patients at Owings Mills Dental Care. Porcelain veneers:
- Provide durability
- Require no special maintenance
- Are stain-resistant
- Look and feel natural
Because our dental veneers are created from porcelain material, they can be color-matched and can reflect light. Their material offers a cosmetic restoration that looks and feels natural. Some patients may even forget that they have veneers bonded to their teeth. If you have broken or stained teeth and want to restore your smile, call Owings Mills Dental Care today at (410) 314-9546.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
Before treatment, Dr. Chibb will review your budget, goals, and oral health to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you. She will also assess your teeth and gums prior to bonding your porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are crafted from thin shells of dental ceramic which are reflective and color-matched to natural teeth. Dr. Chibb will remove a small amount of tooth structure from the tooth or teeth that will receive the dental veneers. After teeth are prepared, molds of teeth will be taken to create custom-fit veneers.
You will be fitted with temporary veneers before the final restoration is complete. After several weeks, the permanent veneers are bonded to prepared teeth. Dr. Chibb will make any necessary adjustments for fit and to ensure that you have a stable bite. Your porcelain veneers will be permanently bonded to teeth and polished for a natural look.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Are porcelain veneers better than tooth bonding?
Yes. Porcelain veneers are more durable and provide lasting results compared to dental bonding. Dental bonding is best used as a temporary measure for when you are not ready for veneers or other options. Veneers also last much longer than dental bonding, and won’t need to be routinely touched-up.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers can last between 15 to 20 years before we recommend replacement. The life of your veneers can be extended with an excellent oral hygiene routine and bi-yearly dental care. They can also be repaired and easily replaced in the case of damage.
Are veneers covered by dental insurance?
Veneers are not typically covered by dental insurance. Although, If we are placing a dental veneer for restorative reasons (to repair a broken, infected, or chipped tooth) then they may be partially covered. Discuss the procedure with your dentist and insurance provider to see if you can get partial coverage. We also provide dental financing options.
