You might expect improving your smile to be a lengthy, painful process of procedures, implements, and treatments. But there is a way to perfect chipped, crooked, yellowed, or jagged teeth: dental veneers.
Dr. Dave Verma and Dr. Arpana Verma of Frederick Dental Group in Frederick, MD, can fit you with veneers that offer a much-improved smile in just hours. Best of all, veneers can last for years, making them hassle-free and convenient. Make an appointment with us to see if you are a candidate for veneers.
What are veneers?
Veneers are essentially teeth-shaped coverings that affix to the front of your natural teeth. The slim ceramic facings are cemented to the surface for a permanent bond. Veneers from our Frederick, MD, office are durable, natural-looking, and functional.
What are the benefits of veneers?
- Efficiency: Veneers are the fastest way to correct a multitude of dental imperfections. Veneers cover up stains, cracks, gaps, rough surfaces, misalignment, and otherwise damaged teeth. Rather than needing many treatments, such as braces, whitening, retainers, crowns, or fillings, veneers are a more convenient fix. After your veneers are custom-crafted and affixed, you will see a much-improved smile.
- Appearance: Veneers are natural-looking yet attractive, made to fit the shape, size, and tint of real teeth so they are inconspicuous while giving you a glamorous grin. Veneers have the added bonus of repelling stains from beverages like coffee or wine for longer-lasting whiteness.
- Durability: Veneers are strong and built to withstand normal chewing, biting, and brushing. You can eat and practice dental hygiene like you would with your regular teeth. Veneers can last a long time when cared for well, making them a great investment for your smile. (Follow proper care instructions provided by our office)
- Comfort: They are affixed precisely so you have no irritation to your gums or mouth.
Am I a candidate for veneers?
It's important that you schedule a consultation with us before you make any decisions. Not everyone is suitable for veneers. Patients with unhealthy teeth and gums are not eligible candidates for veneers. Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, also disqualifies you. Your dentist will also determine if you have enough tooth enamel for the procedure. There are situations when other procedures are much better suited to your needs, like dental crowns.
You also need to consider the risks that come with veneers. If veneers debond from your teeth, they can cause chipping or other issues that will need correction.
