Dental veneers can transform your smile from a source of diminished self-esteem into something you feel proud to share with those veneersaround you. Find out more about the versatility of porcelain veneers and what they can do for you with Dr. Irving Phillips, Jr. and Dr. Wade Dressler at Dental Choice in Easton, MD.

What are porcelain dental veneers? 
Dental veneers fit over your existing natural teeth to cover their imperfections and renew your smile. The process requires several appointments with your dentist since a dental laboratory creates your veneers using an impression of your prepared teeth. The lab requires about two weeks to create the veneers, requiring a short wait time between preparing your teeth and placing the final veneers. In the meantime, you will wear temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth.

Why are veneers made from porcelain? 
Porcelain resembles your natural teeth’s enamel so much that it is almost impossible to distinguish between the two. Porcelain’s versatility in color and light-reflecting qualities make it the perfect material from which to craft dental restorations like dental veneers, tooth-colored dental fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures.

The Versatility of Porcelain Dental Veneers in Easton, MD 
Porcelain dental veneers can help patients in a large variety of dental situations and conditions. The veneers simply require a healthy foundation free from teeth decay or gum disease and a solid at-home oral care routine to keep them healthy. Some common uses for porcelain dental veneers include to repair or improve:

  • chips
  • cracks
  • uneven teeth
  • small gaps
  • slight misalignments

Dentists often suggest using dental veneers in conjunction with other restorative or cosmetic dentistry treatments.
