Porcelain Veneers

The Smile You Always Wanted

We offer porcelain veneers at White Flint Dental Associates in Rockville . This custom cosmetic dentistry treatment can help you look and feel your very best. Veneers are extremely thin pieces of dental porcelain that adhere to the front of your teeth, effectively concealing discoloration, chips, cracks, or other minor cosmetic imperfections. At our Rockville practice, we will explain exactly what to expect, listen to your goals and concerns, and answer any questions you may have. To learn more about porcelain veneers and how they can give you the beautiful, symmetrical smile you desire, please contact our office today.

An Introduction to Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are an excellent way to achieve an overall aesthetic enhancement without undergoing more involved treatments such as orthodontics. Each individual veneer is custom-made to fit the exact shape of your tooth, and because they are made of high-grade porcelain, they look like your natural teeth. There are two primary types of veneers: traditional veneers, which require some removal of tooth enamel, and no-prep veneers that require no alteration of the teeth.

At White Flint, we prefer to use a no-prep or minimal-prep type of veneer. Because the porcelain shell is noticeably thinner, they require little or no preparation of the tooth. This method gives you a long-lasting cosmetic enhancement, while allowing you to retain as much of your natural tooth as possible. This also means that if you ever decide you want to revert to your natural smile, no-prep veneers can be removed without compromising your smile. During an initial appointment, we will take impressions of the teeth you wish to treat. Those impressions will be sent to an offsite lab, where technicians will craft your veneers from porcelain selected to match the color of your teeth. In about two weeks, you can return to have your veneers bonded to your teeth.

The Many Benefits of Veneers

Veneers are durable, often lasting up to ten years with proper care. Unlike other methods of improving the appearance of your smile, such as dental crowns , they allow you to achieve your aesthetic goals while still maintaining the structure of your teeth. Your custom-crafted veneers will complement surrounding teeth in color, size and shape. You may be amazed at the difference just one or two veneers can make in the appearance of your smile. In as little as two visits over the course of two weeks, you can leave our office looking like you finished months of orthodontic therapy. You can experience renewed confidence and charisma as you find yourself feeling proud to share your enhanced smile with everyone you meet.
