Dental veneers provide an excellent solution if you are looking to enhance your smile. They are a popular cosmetic treatment because of their overall effectiveness and ease of use.
Veneers in Germantown, MD
Dental veneers are great if you’re experiencing crowding problems, chipped teeth, worn down teeth, or stained teeth. Veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance—they will hide any noticeable flaws and help the teeth appear straight and even.
Every set of dental veneers is custom-designed based on your preferences—so you get the results you want. The shade, style, and shape of veneers are customized to look exactly as you’d like. The application of dental veneers takes place with minimal, if any, discomfort. Dental veneers are strong and durable and will last for many years before they require replacement or repairs.

How do dental veneers work?
Dental veneers are incredibly thin shells that are applied on the front surfaces of a person’s teeth. Depending on the style of veneers, the teeth may be prepped first by removing a small amount of enamel. They are very easy to apply, requiring preparation of the teeth and then securing them in place with a strong dental adhesive.
Your veneers will cover any noticeable flaws from your existing smile. Beyond that, we can make adjustments to the veneers for improved alignment or to resolve spacing issues that you’re unhappy with.
How much are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are generally considered a cosmetic procedure and as a result, are not covered by insurance. At Suburban Dental in Germantown, MD, our porcelain veneers are $1,400 per veneer.
We understand that cost and financial information is one of the biggest barriers to getting the smile of your dreams. We have a variety of financing options and accept third-party payments from Compassionate Finance and CareCredit.

What is the difference between porcelain veneers and composite veneers?
The two main types of dental veneers are porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are good options to help you improve your smile.
Composite veneers are manufactured in-office, using tooth-colored resin, and applied directly to the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, out of porcelain, to fit your teeth. These are typically made in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth. Porcelain veneers generally last longer because of the stronger material, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as very dark stained teeth or incorrectly positioned teeth.
Veneers vs. crowns—what’s the difference?
Dental veneers and dental crowns are both used for cosmetic purposes—to cover up or fix chips, stains, discoloration, or crooked teeth. The main difference between the two is that dental crowns cover the entire tooth surface whereas veneers only cover the front portion of the tooth. Crowns (2 mm) are much thicker than veneers (1 mm) and the price for each is similar. Crowns provide additional support to damaged teeth whereas veneers do not. However, veneers are a much less invasive procedure and require less removal of the original tooth structure.
Veneers and crowns are both a great solution for patients looking to get a white, straight smile they can be confident in. If you’re interested, but unsure which option is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.Learn More About Dental Crowns
