Have you longed for a "Hollywood" smile, yet felt that the process or the cost of obtaining it were out of reach? Porcelain veneers are now popular with anyone desiring to mask a dental imperfection. Our Rockville, Maryland dental office can help you determine if porcelain veneers are the right way for you to enhance your smile.
Dental veneers can reshape your smile in many different ways. They can hide gaps and spaces between your teeth, disguise chips or cracks, and even correct the shape of your teeth. The patient in the before and after pictures below chose to improve his smile with veneers due to staining on one of his upper front teeth and chipping on the edges of many of his other teeth. In this particular case, porcelain veneers were placed on five upper teeth and five lower teeth, creating his new smile!
Another conventional use of porcelain veneers is to straighten your smile. If Dr. Siegel believes that veneers can correct a misalignment for you, you could be showing off your new smile in a few weeks instead of waiting for months, the typical time to complete standard orthodontic treatment.
So what exactly is a veneer? It's an extremely thin piece of porcelain that is custom designed by Dr. Siegel and his ceramist to be bonded over the front of your tooth. Many factors determine the veneer's design-the shape, size and color of the actual tooth and the surrounding tooth play a role, as do the shape of your face, smile, gender and personality.
It is important that your smile reflect who you really are. If your smile is limiting your self-esteem or self-confidence, please contact your Rockville dentist, Dr. Victor Siegel, today and we will be happy to schedule you for a complimentary smile consultation. We also see many patients from surrounding communities such as Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Olney and Potomac. We want to see you smile again because it is the part of you that everyone remembers!
