Cosmetic dentistry offers a wide variety of options for patients desiring either a subtle or dramatic change to the appearance of their smile, but one of the most popular and long lasting is porcelain veneers.
There are several types of dental veneers, but porcelain veneers offer permanent, comfortable and long lasting results- they can last for years with the proper oral hygiene and preventive care with Dr. Morgan and Dr. Wessner in their Severna Park dental office.
Dental veneers can be used for cosmetic correction and as a solution for dental problems such as gaps between teeth, discolored teeth, and chipped or broken teeth.
Dr. Morgan and Dr. Wessner offer their dental patients several options for using dental veneers to correct a cosmetic or health problem:
Lumineers: a removable veneer requiring little to no tooth preparation;
Composite resin veneers: Dr. Morgan skillfully places composite veneers, sculpting the biocompatible material to fit aesthetically with the patient’s natural teeth- this type of veneer is also removable and will have to be replaced over time;
Porcelain veneers: using high quality material, porcelain veneers offer a permanent restoration and are matched to a patient’s natural tooth color for beautiful, comfortable results.
Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and are made of a thin, translucent material that also reflects light in the same way a natural tooth does, allowing them to blend seamlessly with a patient’s natural smile. Custom fit and made in a dental lab, porcelain veneers allow a patient to function normally after treatment, eating and speaking without noticing that they are there!
After the placement of the porcelain veneers, Dr. Morgan and Dr. Wessner will educate their patients on the proper care of veneers in order to maximize their longevity.
