Veneers can be a great way to improve the look of your smile. Your veneers are custom crafted to look like your existing teeth and fit seamlessly.

From all over Greenbelt, Beltsville, Lanham, Riverdale, Hyattsville, Glenn Dale, patients have been coming to Greenbelt Dental Associates for years to get the right veneers that fit their needs and lifestyles.

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a thin covering for the front of your tooth made of porcelain or composite resin. They can be used to cover:

  • chipped, cracked, or disfigured teeth
  • gaps between teeth
  • permanently stained teeth

Porcelain Veneers

Since a porcelain veneer is specially made by a dental lab, the entire process may take longer than that of a composite resin veneer. They are, however, very strong and not easily stained.

To place your porcelain veneer, the dentist usually treats the front and sides of your tooth to remove a little enamel, so there is room for your veneer to fit and look natural.

Once any necessary adjustments have been made by the dentist, your custom veneer is then bonded to your tooth. If need be, the dentist can make some alterations during future appointments.

Composite Resin Veneers

Like porcelain veneers, composite resin veneers are thin coverings for your teeth, but the materials, process, and durability are different.

Since the dentist uses composite resin materials to sculpt and bond your veneer in the office, the whole process may be done in as little as one visit.

To prepare your tooth, usually less enamel is needed to be removed than when placing a porcelain veneer. It is hardened and bonded using a special light and then polished to resemble your surrounding teeth.

Though they generally are not as strong as porcelain veneers, composite resin veneers can be quickly repaired if damaged.

How do I take care of my veneers?

With your new veneers in place, you’ll want to take good care of them and your own teeth to ensure your smile keeps on looking great for years to come.

  • Diet

    Avoid foods that can permanently stain or damage your smile. Just chewing on hard foods or items - like ice, pens and pencils - can greatly harm your veneers and teeth. Once they are damaged, stained, or unintentionally altered in any other way, your veneers might stand out and not look as natural.

  • Oral Hygiene

    To keep your teeth healthy and clean, the American Dental Association recommends that you brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day. And flossing should be done daily to remove bacteria and plaque that can cause your teeth to decay. Dirty and decaying teeth can stand out from your teeth with veneers and may cause unwanted attention.

  • Dental Visits

    It is important to see the dentist regularly to make sure your veneer is staying in place and withstanding your normal life. If necessary, we can make adjustments.

How do I know if I need veneers?

If you are unhappy with the look of your smile or worried that a crack in a tooth may get worse, veneers may be a good option for you. Since veneers are not right for all patients, you should make an appointment with our dentist to review your oral health and dental options. Be sure to mention your specific expectations and desired results.
