What are Dental Veneers?

Vida Dental cosmetic dental veneers offer exceptional aesthetic results to our clients looking for the best smile makeover experience. These aesthetic restorations are custom-made to mask cosmetic flaws in healthy teeth while transforming the overall appearance of your smile. Choose your veneer design to achieve straighter, whiter teeth that you’ll feel proud of showing off. 

Veneers are cosmetic restorations designed to create bright, symmetrical, and perfectly aligned teeth. They are then bonded to your healthy tooth structure, immediately changing your smile’s appearance. Dr. Storch will usually place six or more veneers across your upper front teeth, depending on your smile’s shape. Together, your set of veneers ensures for a straighter looking smile that’s whiter, more symmetrical, and shaped to your liking.

Dental veneers can cover common cosmetic issues like:

Crooked, crowded or gapped teeth

Discoloration and staining

Misshaped, skinny, or short teeth

Uneven enamel

Who is a Candidate for Veneers?

Cosmetic veneers can only be placed on healthy teeth that have no active decay or gum disease. Because they are aesthetic in nature, we will need to ensure that each of the teeth being treated is stable and free of any infection. A porcelain crown might be more suitable for you if your teeth have suffered severe structural damage, as crowns restore compromised teeth while also enhancing their appearance.

Why Porcelain Veneers? 

Porcelain dental veneers offer distinct benefits for smile makeover patients. Each thin shell of porcelain is similar to a partial crown. However, only the front of the tooth will be covered rather than the entire tooth structure. Porcelain is extremely aesthetic and lifelike. As such, we can place multiple veneers at once to achieve natural-looking results. 

Porcelain is also very durable. So, you can typically eat whatever you want without having to worry too much about your restorations. That being said, our Hagerstown cosmetic dentist recommends that you avoid biting straight into anything hard like a carrot or biting your nails, as end-on-end wear could damage the porcelain.

What to Expect

Your smile makeover can be life changing. We don't want to rush the process. Our dentist in Hagerstown will meet with you to discuss your aesthetic goals, and what type of smile you want. Feel free to share photos with us about what you’re looking for or what you want to avoid. In some cases, we may also want to create a diagnostic model that allows you to see our recommendations before your final porcelain veneers are made in the lab.

The preparation and placement process usually requires to visits, about two weeks apart. During the first appointment Dr. Claudia Storch will numb your teeth and slightly reduce the thickness of the enamel on the front surfaces. Then we will take an impression for a lab, fit you with temporary veneers, and instruct the ceramist as to how your veneers should be designed. Two weeks later you’ll return to have the temporary veneers removed and the permanent ones bonded in place.
