Dentistry focuses on ensuring the teeth are healthy, and there are no serious problems with overall shape and function. However, people are not always satisfied with the appearance of their teeth. Minor problems can build up over time, causing low self-confidence or esteem. As a solution, we now offer veneers in Ellicott City, MD, to cover minor cosmetic issues and create a gleaming, brilliant smile.
Excel Dental Care’s Dr. Maryam Roosta in Ellicott City, MD, offers dental veneers treatment ensuring that patients receive the right treatment at all times.
Veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry. They are thin shields designed to cover the teeth along the front and sides. They can be made of porcelain or a composite resin and are meant to be bonded to the teeth. These shells change the size, shape, or color of the teeth without performing permanent cosmetic work.
Veneers are considered an elective procedure, and they can be used to resolve perceived issues by a patient who is unhappy with the appearance of their smile. In the past, individuals have received this treatment to help with dental problems like the following:
The first step to receiving veneers is to set up an appointment with the dentist for an exam and consultation. Someone who has an over or under-bite might struggle to wear the shells, so the teeth need to be checked for alignment and health.
If the teeth are healthy and the patient would like veneers, then the mouth will be numbed. The dentist will shave 1/8 millimeter of enamel to make space for the veneers’ shell to sit on the teeth. Afterward, a mold is made of the teeth. This mold is used to make permanent veneers, while a temporary model is often given to patients while the permanents are made.
After two weeks, once the permanents are ready, the patient returns. They examine the veneers with the dentist, any necessary adjustments are made, and the veneers are then bonded with a special cement to the teeth after they have been cleaned.
