Dental imperfections can be frustrating when you look in the mirror or see yourself in a picture. However, they are able to be corrected. Here at Bishop & Bishop Dental in Silver Spring, MD, we are able to fix almost any type of dental imperfection with dental veneers.
Dental veneers provide a straight, white, beautiful smile without having to work on your actual teeth. Veneers are ceramic shells that fit right over your existing teeth. They can instantly fix the look of misaligned, misshapen, or discolored teeth, among many other tissues. For patients who are looking for a long-lasting white smile, veneers are great because they are stain-resistant.
To begin the process of attaching veneers, a thin layer of enamel will be taken off the teeth which is approximately the thickness of a veneer. An impression will then be taken of the teeth to send to a dental laboratory. The dental lab will create completely custom veneers. During the time the veneers are being created, temporary veneers will need to be worn. When ready, the permanent veneers are attached and fitted for correct bite and use. When taken good care of, veneers can last up to ten years.
If you are unhappy with your smile and want to improve this, veneers may be the perfect solution. To schedule an appointment with Bishop & Bishop Dental of Silver Spring, MD, call our office at (301) 608-9270 or visit our website, www.bishopdental.com.
