In just two or three visits to Comprehensive Dental Care of Oxon Hill, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use.
Special thin laminates, called veneers, can often be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth.
An impression of the tooth must be made and a veneer molded by a lab technician. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible.
The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.
If you would like to see if veneers are the right option for your dental needs, call our office for a consultation with Dr. Peter Merai today: 301-567-9844.
