Porcelain Veneers Fallston MD
Dental veneers are applied to the front of the tooth to improve aesthetics and strength. Dr. Lazer may use porcelain veneers or composite bonding for dental veneer procedures. Porcelain veneers are permanent restoration, made of ultra-thin porcelain designed to look and feel like natural teeth.
Porcelain Veneers can be used to restore:
- aging teeth that have worn down
- broken or chipped teeth
- stained, discolored or yellowed teeth
- stained, unsightly or washed-out fillings
- misshapen or crooked teeth
- to close spaces
Types of Dental Veneers
There are several types of dental veneers available. Composite resin veneers are made using a tooth colored, biocompatible material that is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted into place. This type of dental veneer requires little to no preparation to the tooth and are not permanent.
A Lumineer is brand name dental veneer that requires little to no tooth preparation. Lumineers are not permanent and can be removed if desired. However, Lumineers are not for everyone, our dentists can help you decide what is right for you.
Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent shells of tooth-like material. Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and have similar light reflecting properties compared to natural teeth.
