This cosmetic treatment option can be used on one or more teeth to provide a smoother and brighter appearance. Owings Mills Dental Care’s professional team offers 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, the dentist will review your budget, goals, and oral health to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you. The dentist 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. The dentist will remove as little tooth enamel as possible for your veneers. They will remove a small amount of tooth structure from the tooth or teeth that will receive the dental veneers. After the dentist prepares your teeth, they will take molds of teeth to create customer-fit veneers.
The doctor will fit you with temporary veneers before the final restoration is complete. After several weeks, the dentistwill bond the permanent veneers to the prepared teeth and will make any necessary adjustments for fit and to ensure that you have a stable bite. Your dentist will give you a polished and natural look by permanently bonding the porcelain veneers to your teeth.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Are porcelain veneers better than tooth bonding?
Yes. Porcelain veneers are more durable and provide lasting results compared to dental bonding. The Dentist will recommend using dental bonding as a temporary measure when you are not ready for veneers or other options. Veneers will last much longer than dental bonding and they will not need to touch up.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers can last between 15 to 20 years before we recommend replacement. You can extend the life of your veneers with excellent oral hygiene routines and bi-yearly dental care. Your Dentist can also repair and replace your veneers if you damage them.
Does dental insurance cover veneers?
Dental insurance does not typically cover Veneers. However, your dental insurance may partially cover veneers if you plan to place them for restorative purposes. These restorative reasons could include a broken tooth or an infected or chipped tooth.
Discuss the procedure with your dentist and insurance provider to see if you can get partial coverage. We also provide dental financing options.
