Veneers Can Remedy a Wide Range of Smile Flaws You Didn't Know About

Dental veneers are a tool used by dentists to help improve the appearance of your teeth. You will need several consultations with your dentist so they can custom-design the shells to match your teeth. Veneers cover the surface of your teeth—just the surface. 

They are made of materials specifically designed to blend in with your own teeth. And while dental veneers are often used to improve the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, Dr. Eric Wilhelm and Dr. John Wilhelm can provide other reasons veneers may be a good option for you.

The process of getting veneers

The process of getting dental veneers requires extensive planning between you and your dentist, and will likely require at least three trips to complete the procedure. You will have to be an active participant in your treatment plan.

The first step in your treatment plan is to have a consultation with your dentist. We here at The Wilhelm Dental Group would be delighted to help you improve any flaws with your teeth and help you achieve a beautiful smile.

As part of developing this treatment plan, one of our dentists will examine your teeth, discuss the procedure with you, and potentially make impressions of your mouth. The reason for making these impressions is so we can ensure a custom fit for your veneers. 

Once we have ensured a proper fit for your veneers, the application will depend on the type of veneers you have selected. Some veneers require very little preparation, while more traditional veneers may require the dentist to file down your teeth to allow for proper adhesion. Please note, this may require some anesthesia. More modern veneers require less preparation and can often be completed with no anesthesia.

If you want to improve your smile and fix any potential flaws, give our dentists at The Wilhelm Dental Group a call at (301) 453-8944 to make an appointment. Or if you prefer, you can book directly online through our website.  We look forward to serving you.
