Porcelain Veneers: An Overview
Baltimore area cosmetic dentist, Dr. Byron Desbordes, uses porcelain veneers for patients seeking treatment for dental health and cosmetic concerns. Porcelain veneers are a durable, natural-looking cosmetic dental treatment that are designed to last for many years. With proper oral hygiene, they can last over 10 years.
With minimal tooth surface preparation, Dr. Desbordes can use porcelain veneers to correct a range of cosmetic concerns. They also prevent future oral health concerns from developing. A stable oral health foundation is essential for effective and long lasting veneers. It is a thin ceramic shield that covers the front and sides of a tooth. They are commonly used to:
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth
- Change the shape or length of teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
What to Expect
Porcelain veneers are made from a high quality ceramic dental material. This material is ultra thin, and reflects light like a natural tooth. In just a few visits to our Windsor Mill dentist office, you can have a total smile makeover.
Dr. Desbordes will take impression molds of your teeth to custom design the veneers. The results will fit your natural smile. Once the impressions are created, they are sent to a local dental lab to be fabricated to specifications. Once complete, Dr. Desbordes will prepare your teeth. A small amount of your tooth enamel will be removed to make room for a secure fit.
Dr. Desbordes fixes the porcelain veneers to your teeth using a color matched resin for a permanent restoration. Dental veneers are designed to last for many years. The high-quality material is highly resistant to stains and decay, and feel like natural teeth.
