Cosmetic dentistry is a booming business, and the team here at Dental Choice in Easton, MD, is committed to staying current on the latest veneerstechnology and procedures. As part of their practice, Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler offer porcelain veneers, the most comprehensive cosmetic procedure available today. Below, we discuss how veneers makeover your entire smile, one bit of porcelain at a time. Read on to discover more about these amazing restorations!


How do veneers work?

Each veneer, which is about half the width of a dime, is carefully crafted from ceramic to fit snugly over the front of each tooth. They are shaped, painted, and shined to meet the unique specifications of your smile. This gives the appearance of having a realistically beautiful, even, bright smile, hiding all the flaws underneath the translucent, light-reflecting porcelain.


What can veneers fix?

The short answer—a lot! Veneers are an extremely versatile restoration because their benefits aren't just limited to fixing one problem or one tooth at a time. Chips, cracks, breakage, gaps, discoloration, worn edges, irregular shapes, and even minor alignment problems can all be covered up with this treatment.


Am I a candidate for veneers?

Most of the patients at our Easton, MD, office can easily incorporate porcelain veneers into their dental health. However, there are certain conditions that may need to be addressed prior to placement. This can include gum disease, decay, or a teeth-grinding/clenching habit. Your enamel (the hard outer covering on your teeth) must also be healthy because a very thin layer of it will need to be removed in order to support the veneers. A consultation with one of our skilled dentists will help determine if veneers will work for you or if you should consider an alternative cosmetic dentistry procedure.
