Veneers are a type of dental prosthetic designed to correct cosmetic issues with your smile. They are tooth-shaped, thin, and made of porcelain. They are designed to fit perfectly over your front teeth and cover them up, improving the aesthetics of your smile.
Veneers are an extremely versatile cosmetic treatment, and can be used to correct almost any cosmetic dental issue, including uneven or slightly-crooked teeth, stains, discoloration, minor chips, and more.
Veneers are designed to replace the front chewing surface with a strong, durable porcelain material. The process for having veneers placed usually takes two appointments at Morrison Cosmetic & General Dentistry. At your first appointment, Dr. Morrison will numb your mouth and remove a thin layer of enamel (usually 0.5mm or less). Then, he will take images and impressions of your mouth, which will be sent to a trusted dental lab where your veneers will be crafted.
You’ll wear temporary veneers until your permanent prostheses arrive at our office. Then, you’ll come in for your follow-up. Dr. Morrison will check each veneer to make sure the fit is perfectly and your veneers will be bonded into place permanently with dental cement.
This depends on a number of different factors such as the number of teeth that will be treated and each tooth's individual needs. The best way to get an accurate quote for the cost of veneers is to come to Morrison Cosmetic & General Dentistry at either our Chevy Chase or Gaithersburg location for a cosmetic consultation. After your appointment, Dr. Morrison can provide you with a quote for the cost of the procedure.
