With the rise of the Hollywood smile in recent years, dental veneers are more popular than ever. If you are embarrassed by the imperfections in your teeth, veneers can renew your smile and boost your confidence. With help from your Westminster, MD dentist Dr. Pari Moazed, you can get your very own Hollywood smile.
What are veneers?
Dental veneers are a wafer-thin porcelain shell that fits over the front of a natural tooth. Veneers mask a variety of problems, like chips, misaligned teeth, gaps and cracks. Veneers also cover discoloration and staining. A dental laboratory creates each custom-made veneer based off a mold of your mouth. This ensures a perfect, natural-looking fit that provides a smile to be proud of.
The Benefits of Dental Veneers
- Natural Appearance: Dental veneers are extremely life-like. They are made out of porcelain, making their light-reflecting qualities very similar to natural teeth.
- Effective: Veneers are custom-made to cover virtually any imperfection. Say goodbye to gaps, chips, cracks, discolorations, stains and misaligned teeth.
- Durable: Veneers are stain-resistant and durable. With the proper care, they can last for many years. Your veneers will look, fit and function just like natural teeth.
Your dentist must first prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. He or she shaves a tiny amount of enamel, usually about .5 millimeters, from the front of each tooth. This makes room for the width of the veneer, and also gives the adhesive a sturdy foundation to hold onto. Each veneer is individually fitted to its tooth, and, if necessary, is shaped by your Westminster dentist Dr. Moazed for optimal fit. Your dentist bonds the veneer to the tooth using dental cement, and sets the adhesive with a special bonding light. At this time, your dentist makes any necessary final adjustments, and buffs and polishes your new veneers.
