Say goodbye to aesthetic dental flaws when you get dental veneers in Ellicott City.
Ever wished there was a way to get rid of those little dental flaws without turning to invasive and expensive procedures? What if we told you that you could do just that when you get dental veneers from your Ellicott City dentists Dr. Chetna Desai and Dr. Nancy Goldberg? These thin porcelain shells are placed over the surface of your teeth to cover problem areas without anyone knowing that your smile isn’t yours.
What issues do veneers address?
If you are experiencing any of these dental issues then veneers could be right for you:
- Stains and discolorations
- Chipped teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Minor overlapping
- Crooked or malformed teeth
Whether you are looking for a way to get a brighter smile or you want to change the length or overall shape of your teeth, dental veneers can easily do all that and more. In fact, this is a great alternative for those looking to fix small overlaps in their teeth who don’t want to turn to extensive orthodontic treatment.
What should I expect when I get dental veneers?
There are three main steps to getting dental veneers. The first step entails a thorough physical examination in which your dentist in Ellicott City, MD determines that you are an ideal candidate for treatment.
The second step involves taking impressions and measurements of your teeth from which the dental veneers will be made. We will then prepare your teeth for your veneers. This requires us to shave down some of your tooth enamel to make room for the veneers (after all, you don’t want a bulky smile!). We usually remove no more than 1 millimeter of enamel, and you won’t feel a thing!
Once your veneers have been created, the third step involves placing the veneers. We will get your final approval on the look and shape of your new smile before applying dental resin between your teeth and the veneers. A laser is directed at your teeth to quickly harden the resin and veneers to your teeth. You’ll leave our office with a straighter, whiter and more attractive smile.
