Are dental veneers the right choice for you?
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, today’s patients have a wide variety of treatment options that can address just about any cosmetic or dental health concern.
One of the most common options for damaged, misshapen or deeply stained teeth are dental veneers. There are several types of dental veneers, and each has their benefits and apprpriate applications depending on the issue being addressed and desired outcome.
Dental veneers are applied directly to the surface of the teeth, requiring varying degrees of tooth preparation for each type of veneer. At Valley Dental Health, Dr. Rafat and Dr. Izadi place all types of dental veneers, making a recommendation based on the dental health and cosmetic goals of the patient.
Dental Veneer Options:
Composite Resin Veneers: this type of veneer is often considered temporary and is used to correct a minor imperfection in a tooth. Dr. Rafat or Izadi will directly apply a tooth colored material to the surface of the tooth.
Lumineers: this type of veneer requires minimal tooth preparation and is made from a thin, translucent material that will lend a natural appearance.
Porcelain Veneers: considered the “gold standard” of dental veneers, porcelain veneers can provide a permanent solution to many cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers require tooth preparation and will be custom made for a comfortable fit that looks and functions naturally.
Deciding which veneer is best for you requires the experience and skill of a trained cosmetic dentist. Dr. Rafat and Dr. Izadi have years of experience with cosmetic dentistry and can make a recommendation after a thorough exam. Both have been voted Top Dentists in Baltimore and have helped many patients achieve the smiles they desire!
