Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain adhered to the front of your teeth, giving you a new smile that looks natural. Veneers cover issues with your teeth that may be affecting your confidence and your oral health.

Issues that veneers address include:

  • Enamel erosion
  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Veneers are permanent and stain-resistant, making them a great choice for creating the look of natural teeth.

What is the process of getting veneers?

Before the procedure begins, your dentist cleans your affected teeth, takes digital X-rays to get a close view of your teeth’s positioning, and makes an impression of your teeth to create your veneers.

Your veneers are customized and made to specifically fit your mouth and give you the aesthetic you want. Once the veneers are made, your dentist starts the procedure. 

Your dentist removes a thin layer of your original tooth enamel to make room for the porcelain veneer application. Then they place an adhesive between the prepared tooth and the veneer and use a specialized curing light to harden and permanently bond it.

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers are a restorative option to recreate the look of your natural teeth. The thin layer of porcelain mimics the appearance and function of a tooth. 

Hyattsville Dental Care customizes each veneer to your mouth and bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers fix dental flaws and also help strengthen weak teeth. Veneers are stain-resistant, made to match your natural enamel, and permanent. 

Your dentist shows you options to choose from to make sure you select the best type of veneers for you.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Veneers improve your smile and the health of your teeth. Benefits of veneers are:

  • They look natural
  • They are resistant to stains
  • They strengthen teeth
  • Little or no gum irritation
  • Cost less than other treatments
