Want to create a new you for 2019? If the answer to that question is yes, then consider porcelain veneers in Potomac. These comfortable dental coverings can bring out the best in your smile and in you, too! Read on to learn more about porcelain veneers and the difference they can make in your smile and in your life.
WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?
As the name suggests, porcelain veneers are coverings that hid a less attractive surface underneath. Today, veneers are made of strong, natural looking dental porcelain. They even sparkle just way healthy tooth enamel does. Veneers are designed for each specific tooth, so your smile looks natural and not like a row of evenly sized white blocks. In other words, your incisors will not be the same shape and size as your front teeth.
WHAT CAN VENEERS FIX?
Because porcelain veneers conceal your own tooth structure, they can be used to correct a number of different cosmetic flaws in your smile. These include:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Teeth that are unusually worn
- Teeth that are permanently stained or discolored
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Teeth that are irregularly spaced
How Are Veneers Placed on Your Teeth?
The process begins with removing a slim layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. By removing some enamel, your veneers will be able to lie more evenly in your mouth. This is a permanent alteration, so you want to know that your cosmetic dentist in Potomac has knowledge and experience in this important step. After this, you’ll need to wear a temporary set of veneers while the permanent set is handcrafted in a dental lab.
After a couple of weeks, you’ll return to have the temporaries removed. Your customized porcelain veneers will be checked and then carefully bonded to the specific tooth that is was made for. With daily oral hygiene and regular checkups, you can look forward to enjoying the confidence boosting benefits of an attractive smile for years to come.
THE COST OF PORCELAIN VENEERS
Finally, porcelain veneers are not inexpensive and they are rarely covered by dental insurance. The overall cost will depend on the number of teeth you need to have restored.
To find out exactly what your porcelain veneers will cost—and whether or not this cosmetic treatment is right for you—schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist in Potomac.
