What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile with durable, lasting results. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, translucent shell-like coverings of fine dental porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front of teeth. The medical grade material offers advanced treatment to meet your cosmetic needs and durable results that will resist stains. Advances in material and technology make today’s porcelain veneers look and feel more like natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can correct a number of functional and aesthetic concerns including:
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth that don’t respond to teeth whitening
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Worn down teeth
Porcelain Veneer Process
At Howard Count Smiles we use CEREC dental restoration technology to design, fabricate and fit dental veneers in just one visit to our Columbia, MD area dentist office. In just a single visit you can have your veneers custom designed and milled on site.
Dr. Becker takes a very conservative approach to preparing the teeth for porcelain veneers, leaving as much of the natural tooth as possible. With our CEREC technology, we are able to produce the porcelain veneers in our Columbia, MD dentist office, while the patient waits. This advanced technology saves the patient from the uncomfortable temporaries and multiple visits that are normally needed to complete the procedure. It also eliminates the need for messy impression trays and reduces the amount of time it takes to design a custom veneer.
Once the design is complete, and the patient is satisfied with the digital preview of their new teeth, Dr. Becker will use our onsite laboratory equipment to fabricate your veneer while you wait. Then the porcelain veneers will be permanently secured to the prepared teeth and then polished to a natural luster and adjusted as necessary for fit.
Maintaining an oral health routine that includes a professional teeth cleaning is important to the long term success of your porcelain veneers. If properly cared for, they can last 10-15 years, sometimes longer. Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains from food and drink so you can be sure your smile will remain youthful and bright. They will be color matched to blend in with the rest of your natural teeth for an unnoticeable treatment.
