Find out how dental veneers can improve the look of your smile.

Do you want to get a smile that’s worthy of the red carpet or catwalk? You may assume that getting this kind of smile will require a budget of a movie star, or multiple, invasive procedures. But what if your Gaithersburg, MD dentist told you that you could have that perfect smile with only one non-invasive cosmetic procedure?


The answer you’re looking for is dental veneers, or wafer-thin porcelain shells applied to the front of your teeth to hide problem areas. Read on to find out how dental veneers can give you the ideal smile.

How can dental veneers give me that Hollywood smile?

We’re so glad you asked! Say goodbye to these common dental imperfections when you say yes to dental veneers:

  • Stains and discolorations
  • Chips and cracks
  • Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Overlapping teeth

Whether you are unhappy with the color, shape or overall look of your smile, your Gaithersburg, MD dentist can help you obtain the smile you want with dental veneers.

What should I expect when I get dental veneers in Gaithersburg, MD?

So what does the procedure entail? You’ll be happy to hear that it’s simple and non-invasive. Some tooth preparation is required before we can apply your veneers, but this is minimal and painless. Though veneers are thin, you don’t want them to look bulky on your teeth; therefore, we need to remove a small amount of enamel from these teeth before application.

Once your teeth have been fully prepared, we will help you decide on the proper shade for your new veneers. Then we will measure your teeth to send the mold to a lab, where they will fabricate veneers to perfectly fit your smile. In the meantime, temporary veneers will be placed over your teeth.

After your veneers are complete, you will come back in for a second visit in which your Gaithersburg, MD dentist will remove the temporary veneers and replace them with your permanent ones. Veneers are applied to the front of the teeth using a special resin, which we then harden with a laser.

Two visits and you could get a smile that rivals that of the rich and famous. If you are ready to get a smile that others will envy, then schedule your consultation with Dr. Kenneth Woo, DDS and Associates. Let one of our expert dentists give you the smile you want.
