You can get a new and improved smile in just a few weeks with veneers.

If you are dealing with discolored, misshapen or awkward aligned teeth then you may find yourself hiding your smile from those around you. Our Silver Spring, MD, dentist Dr. Susan Pearson wants to see patients happy and confident in their smiles…and this is where dental veneers come in.

What is a dental veneer?

Veneers are bonded to the front of teeth to hide the aesthetic flaws in your smile. A veneer is a thin, porcelain shell that is adhered to the front surface of a tooth, providing a new, improved outer layer. Veneers are typically made from porcelain because this material is incredibly durable and also mimics the look of real tooth enamel.

What can dental veneers fix?

Wondering if you could be a great candidate for dental veneers? Our Silver Spring, MD, family dentist places veneers over teeth that are discolored, chipped, slightly misaligned, and malformed or misshapen in some way. Any problem that affects the appearance of the tooth could be hidden from plain sight with the help of veneers. Veneers could even help you get a slightly straighter smile.

Should I consider dental veneers?

If you are looking for a simple, straightforward cosmetic treatment that isn’t invasive then dental veneers can give you a taste of what our dental team can do for your smile. Veneers require very little tooth preparation and can handle a wide range of aesthetic problems.

Veneers can also be used alongside other treatment options such as teeth whitening and dental bonding, to give you a complete makeover. Of course, the first step is to find out if your teeth are healthy enough for veneers, which involves coming in for a consultation.
 

Our Silver Spring, MD, cosmetic dentist and her team are here to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Whether you want to sit down and discuss dental veneers, dental bonding or dental implants, call (301) 649-2203 to schedule a consultation with us.

Could your smile benefit from dental crowns? Looking for a dentist in Silver Spring? Getting dental crowns is a great way to improve your smile if you have a damaged or misshapen tooth. They are tooth-shaped dental caps that cover the outside of the teeth and can correct many different types of dental problems. Dr. Susan Pearson in Silver Spring, MD offers full-service, state-of-the-art dental care to her patients. Read on to find out how dental crowns can improve your smile.

1. They can fix your dental issues. Dental crowns are routinely used to restore badly decayed, broken, and damaged teeth. They're used to attach dental bridges, cover dental implants, and protect weakened teeth from fracturing. They are are also used to protect teeth following root canal treatment. They fit, feel, and function like your original teeth.

2. They can beautify your smile. Dental crowns can renew the beauty of your smile. Because all-porcelain dental crowns are the most cosmetically pleasing, they're often used for the front teeth. All-porcelain dental crowns are natural-looking and beautiful. The translucency and gloss of mimic the appearance of your natural teeth.

3. They can give you a natural smile. It is important that you have dental crowns that match your original teeth. They should match the color of your teeth for the best looking, most natural results. Your dental provider can choose from different shades to give you crowns that are better matched to the color of your teeth.

4. They can make your teeth strong. Dental caps can strengthen your worn-down, weakened, and damaged teeth. They are incredibly strong and tough like tooth enamel. Porcelain-fused-to-metal and all-porcelain crowns are strong and produce pleasing aesthetics.

5. They can restore oral function. It's very difficult to eat when you have fractured teeth. Dental crowns will give you the ability to enjoy good food again. They restore the structure of your fractured teeth so you can eat in comfort and with confidence.

6. They can whiten your smile. If your teeth have darkened after root canal therapy, bleaching them won't help. Also, teeth bleaching will not lighten some dental stains. In these cases, your dentist in Silver Spring may recommend covering the stained teeth with dental caps.

Your journey to a strong & beautiful smile starts here. Call Dr. Susan Pearson in Silver Spring, MD at 301-649-2203 to book a dental consultation and get the smile you deserve.
