Whiten Teeth with Dental Veneers in Laurel, MD
During your consultation, we will discuss what you might hope to achieve with veneers, such as the desire to alter the shape and size or to whiten teeth, as well as any concerns you may have about the procedure. Patients who need major orthodontic treatment may not be good candidates to straighten or whiten teeth with veneers without prior treatment.
Your second appointment will be scheduled to prepare your teeth. We must remove enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneers, roughly 0.50 millimeters. An impression of your mouth will be taken from which we will create your custom veneers, a process that takes approximately three weeks.
When you return for your final appointment, we will adjust the veneers, if necessary, to ensure that they are the ideal fit and shape to straighten and whiten teeth. We will then clean and etch your teeth to facilitate a secure bond with the veneers. Dental cement is applied to your teeth and the thin porcelain veneer shells are placed. When the position is just right, a special dental light is used to set the cement, bonding your veneers to the teeth.
Veneers are a permanent way to achieve the bright, healthy smile you desire. Contact Laurel Laser Dentistry
