Porcelain Veneers the “beauty” of the dental world, a procedure that corrects cosmetic flaws
Gapped, irregularly shaped, worn-down, chipped, and cracked teeth may be treated in a single visit with stunning porcelain veneers. At Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, Maryland, we are privileged to offer this versatile and popular method to correct many common cosmetic complaints.
Sink your teeth into veneers
Veneers are thin layers of dental ceramic or porcelain. They are precisely made to a patient’s unique specifications. When applied to the front surfaces of the teeth, they disguise imperfections such as those listed above.
Porcelain is a sought-after dental material. It is heralded for its translucence, stain resistance, and strength. There is no better material to mimic the properties of natural tooth enamel. Modern dental porcelain veneers are also conservative, which means that they are very thin and require little to no removal of the natural tooth structure. Very little enamel is generally removed so that the veneer fits well and naturally over the tooth.
The process of getting porcelain veneers is also very technique-specific. It is essential to entrust the appearance and health of your smile to an experienced and skilled dentist like Dr. Frederick Asuncion. He will ensure that the natural tooth and the veneer are prepared precisely and correctly. In this manner, the veneer will not stick out too much or overwhelm the rest of your teeth, smile, and face.
Veneers, the CEREC way
Dr. Asuncion can also prepare, design, make, refine, and place veneers in one visit. Using the computer-aided CEREC system, he can create dental restorations, including crowns and veneers, while you wait. At other offices that do not have such in-house capabilities, you would have to wait at least a few weeks for an outside lab to make your restorations. Then, you would return to the dentist for the actual placement of the restoration once the lab completes it. If the veneer didn’t look or fit right, it would have to be re-made. Yes, that means a third trip back to the dentist’s office!
At Asuncion Dental Group, we can make adjustments or even re-make an entire veneer in just moments. We also have lots of quality control over the final product. We can assure you that your veneers are made to exacting specifications and with the highest quality and most esthetic and durable porcelain.
