Annapolis cosmetic dentist Dr. Maria Colucciello can enhance your natural smile and improve your dental health through a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures, including porcelain veneers. A highly trained and experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Colucciello works with patients to ensure that the results of their dentistry are lasting, comfortable and support a functional smile.
A porcelain veneer is a permanent dental restoration that covers the front and sides of a tooth, commonly used to:
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth
- Change the shape or length of teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
Made of ultra-thin, translucent materials, a porcelain veneer is durable, stain resistant and reflects light much like a natural tooth for a beautiful result.
Porcelain Veneers: What To Consider
Porcelain veneers will provide a natural looking, comfortable and permanent result that can make over your smile and support lasting dental health with good oral hygiene and dental care. Dr. Colucciello will perform a thorough evaluation of your dental health and discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.
Cosmetic tooth bonding is an economical alternative that may be more suitable for younger patients or those not yet ready to commit to the cost of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain Veneers: What To Expect
The porcelain veneer procedure is a multi step process beginning with a consultation with Dr. Colucciello in her Annapolis dentist office.
After the initial treatment planning, a visit will be scheduled for taking impressions to be used in the fabrication of your custom porcelain veneers. During this visit, the tooth surface will be prepared for placing the final restorations. This involves removing as little of the tooth structure as possible to address any dental health or cosmetic concerns being treated and ensure a secure fit.
The final visit includes placement and cementing of your porcelain veneers- and the reveal of your new smile. Dr. Colucciello will make any last minute adjustments for fit and comfort. She will also provide information on how nest to care for your new restorations for a lasting result.
