Our dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of high-quality porcelain and a permanent dental restoration. The properties of porcelain allow us to match the color of the porcelain to the color of your real teeth. Although they are thin, they are extremely durable.

Porcelain Veneers: What to Expect

It takes a few visits to our Rockville, MD, dental office to to get dental veneers. After a consultation with Dr. Sarkarzadeh, he prepares your teeth to make room for the dental veneer. He will remove some tooth enamel from the teeth that will receive the veneers. Removing some of the tooth surfaces will ensure a comfortable fit for the porcelain veneers.

The next step is the design process. Dr. Sarkarzadeh will take impressions of the prepared teeth and create a dental veneer design that addresses your goals. He considers shape, size, and color when creating custom dental veneers.

Next, Dr. Sarkarzadeh sends the final design to a dental lab for fabrication. He may fit you with a temporary dental veneer while we wait for the lab to send us the final restoration.

When we receive the veneers from the dental lab, you will return to our dental office for the final fitting. Dr. Sarkarzadeh places the veneers and will make sure that you are happy with the shape, size, and color. Finally, he will permanently bond the new dental veneers to your teeth using a special bonding agent.

You will leave our office with a fresh new smile. Practice a good oral care routine and your veneers may last for 10 years or longer. Our porcelain veneers will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Do you have further questions about how porcelain veneers can benefit your smile? Porcelain veneers can address a variety of dental concerns. Continue reading to learn more and find answers to commonly asked questions.

Can a dentist use porcelain veneers on any tooth in my mouth?

While porcelain veneers can provide remarkable aesthetic improvements to your mouth, not all teeth can support veneers. You need to consider certain factors before determining if a tooth is suitable for a veneer. For example, the target teeth need to be strong enough to support a veneer so the overall health of the tooth is important.

The dentist will need to address extensive decay or damage first. You may require other dental treatments such as fillings or crowns before considering veneers. Additionally, a tooth that has insufficient enamel or is structurally weak is not an ideal candidate for veneers.

Another important consideration is the alignment and bite of your mouth. Severe misalignment issues or bite problems can sabotage your results. We may recommend orthodontic treatments like braces or Invisalign before providing porcelain veneers.

Will Dental Insurance Cover the Cost?

Dental insurance providers do not usually cover the cost of cosmetic procedures. You need to pay the initial cost up front, and then contact your insurance provider for potential reimbursement. We can help you maximize your benefits, and also provide financing options to help offset the cost of veneers.

Do porcelain veneers have any impact on my diet?

You do not have to change your diet or the types of food you eat with porcelain veneers. However, you could develop cracks or chips if you chew on hard food or ice. However, this is still a rare occurrence because of the strength of modern dental veneers.

How long can I expect my porcelain veneers to last?

With a good oral hygiene routine, you can expect your new porcelain veneers to last for over 10 years. This includes daily brushing and flossing and using mouthwash. Porcelain veneers are extremely strong and chip-resistant even though they are as thin as a sheet of paper.

How do I maintain the quality of my porcelain veneers?

Caring for your new dental veneers is simple. Just follow a typical oral hygiene routine. Remember to brush and floss your teeth daily, and visit our dentist twice a year for the best results. The best part about dental veneers is they are not susceptible to decay.

You will not get a cavity in your dental veneer. Porcelain veneers will last for many years. Good oral hygiene and routine dental care will support the long-term integrity of your porcelain veneers. Contact Dr. Sarkarzadeh for this cosmetic procedure and many more at Congressional Dental Care.
