Porcelain Veneers in Ocean City, MD Help Your Teeth Shine

Woman smiling at beachPorcelain veneers are thin coverings hand crafted from fine dental porcelain. They fit over the front teeth, hiding stains, chips, gaps, and even misalignments. Typically placed in two visits, porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry solution for people who want to give their smile instant appeal.

Dr. Edward Dougherty will expertly design your veneers based on your unique needs. With porcelain veneers, he can alter the length, size, shape, and color of your teeth, creating a more uniform, shapely smile. High-quality dental porcelain is stain resistant and luminescent, and it always provides highly-esthetic, natural-looking results. Contact Delmarva Sedation Dentistry today if you’re ready to schedule an appointment here in Ocean City or if you have any questions for our team members. We happily serve patients from all over the Delmarva Peninsula.

What is the Procedure Like?

At your cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Dougherty will ask you what you like and dislike about your smile. He may suggest that you bring in pictures of smiles you like or browse our smile gallery for ideas. Together, you will create a plan that resolves all of your concerns. If porcelain veneers are right for you, Dr. Dougherty will create a custom design, including models that will allow you to preview the proposed results. The plans are sent to a dental laboratory with which we will work closely to ensure the best possible outcome.

Dr. Dougherty will place the veneers during a second visit. A small amount of tooth enamel will be removed to make room for the veneers, and sedation options are available for your comfort. With proper care and maintenance, including regular dental visits, porcelain veneers can last for 10 years or longer. In some cases, Dr. Dougherty recommends combining porcelain veneers with other cosmetic dental treatments like porcelain crowns or teeth whitening to increase both strength and esthetics.
