Dental Veneers For Teeth In Timonium
Did you know that your teeth are often the first thing people notice about you? We want your smile to send the right message, and you can do just that with fabulous porcelain veneers. Don’t let gaps, chips, discolored, stained, or crooked teeth hold you back.
With options of Durathin, Lumineers, conventional porcelain veneers, or composite veneers, we can help your teeth look more even. We can also make them look straighter, more beautiful, and and whiter. Dental veneers can take years off of your look!
Whether you want a total makeover or a subtle enhancement, it’s all possible with veneers for teeth. The best smiles often include dental veneers!
You can flash that smile with confidence as you go about your life in Baltimore and beyond! The best part is that they can brighten your smile for years to come. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than your natural teeth or composite.
With appropriate home and professional care in our offices, veneers can last for decades. We’ve seen this result in our own patients since 1992.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, translucent shells, usually made of porcelain, that are bonded directly to the front of the teeth. They are an exemplary, conservative choice for enhancing your smile, and they have become exceedingly popular due to their beauty, strength, longevity, and practicality.
The process of custom veneers takes extensive technical skills coupled with attention to cosmetic detail. We routinely provide this treatment, and approach each case individually to correspond with, and embellish, the characteristics of your unique smile.
You’ll receive a “test drive” set of veneers to evaluate prior to the final set. This helps assure that we have met your aesthetic expectations prior to the finished result. Now that’s a reason to smile!
Will My Dental Veneers Look Natural? – YES!
The best cosmetic and restorative dental care must be virtually undetectable and unbelievably natural. This is what Dr. Haywood is known for, and what we strive for in every case.
Ultra-thin porcelain veneers remain naturally translucent and shiny, identical to natural enamel, even once bonded to the teeth. After we determine what your personal goals are and what your perception of beauty is, we can work toward the most appealing and natural result.
We start with a smile evaluation on our imaging computer. Together with the doctor’s experience and creative eye, your desires and our artistry combine to define the “dream smile” you are envisioning.
Veneers for teeth make you look like a ‘more perfect you’. In addition, today’s veneers for teeth can actually reinforce and strengthen weakened teeth.
Most people request whiter and straighter teeth, and Dr. Haywood insists on a natural, never-fake look for his work.
Will I Have To Sacrifice My Real Teeth?
Many people are concerned that in order to get veneers for their teeth they must have them ground down. You can rest assured that with the amazing technical capabilities we offer, a dental veneer can be as thin as a contact lens.
In fact, veneers can be like a suit of armor that just partially wraps around each individual tooth, protecting and strengthening it. Unlike traditional veneers or “crowns”, our veneers don’t require having to grind down the entire tooth.
How Durable Are Porcelain Veneers?
With proper dental care, porcelain veneers have the potential to improve your smile for a lifetime. Dr. Haywood ensures that dental veneers from our Towson or Southern York County area practices are fabricated from the highest quality materials and are bonded to the teeth using the most innovative, proven agents.
All of our dental porcelain work is hand-crafted in the USA by specific master ceramists. The quality of our lab’s porcelain is unmatched.
Of course, teeth should not be used to open objects or cut things, but, if a veneer becomes damaged accidentally, this damage can typically be easily corrected. (We warranty our veneers for one full year, no questions asked.) The way you care for your new smile is the ultimate predictor of longevity. Ask us how we can help keep your veneers looking brand new.
How Much Do They Cost?
It’s safe to say that the money spent on dental veneers today can save you much more in dental costs in the future. While they are generally more expensive than resin bonding, they are more natural, will not break as easily, won’t stain or wear, and can last a lifetime.
The difference veneers can make to your appearance and self-confidence is priceless. They also serve to protect your teeth and turn back the hands of time. Again, because each case is unique everyone will get a different price.
In our area (Pikesville, Towson and Washington, DC) a single veneer can range anywhere from $1,200.00 to $2,500.00. The reason that it is difficult to quote fees prior to assessment is that cosmetic dentistry is more complex than most people imagine, and is about more than just dental veneers.
People say ‘veneers’ but really mean “a stunning smile that lasts for a really long time.” Our focus is on creating exquisite smiles and doing whatever it takes to achieve them.
How Do You Arrange For Payment?
We will work with your budget to achieve the uncompromising results you deserve. Payment options, financing, and pre-payment discounts are available. Creatively staging your treatment may be of benefit to you, especially if you are using flex health spending accounts to help with your payments.
The best value for your money is dentistry that will last. We will not compromise on your care in any way. Our client coordinator is dedicated and proficient in helping you achieve your needs and desires. In fact, she makes it her personal mission to ensure that every financial option is examined so that you get the care and attention that you deserve.
Please Refer Your Friends!
Our smiles are worn proudly by some of the most beautiful and influential people in our area. Our greatest reward is an ecstatic client who has the confidence and trust in us to refer friends and family.

Direct Bonded Veneers
As an alternative to indirect veneers, you may choose direct bonding to restore beauty to teeth that have been cracked, chipped, discolored, or otherwise cosmetically impacted.
How Does Direct Composite Bonding Work?
To enhance a tooth or teeth with direct bonding, surface enamel is slightly roughened and then chemically etched. This allows better adhesion of the bonding liquid. This liquid is applied and then cured through the application of high-intensity blue light.
Resin ceramic material colored to match the surrounding teeth is then applied and hand-shaped into the most appropriate shape and size. Multiple layers of this composite material are often used to mimic the natural appearance necessary for a beautiful smile.
Once perfectly shaped, the tooth is trimmed and polished for a totally natural appearance. Through advanced skill, an artistic eye, and a great deal of experience, we go above and beyond in this area of cosmetic dentistry.
How Do Direct Bonded Veneers Differ From Porcelain Veneers?
The main advantage of direct bonded veneers is that they can be hand sculpted on the spot and they are often the most conservative of our cosmetic procedures. They serve the same purpose as a porcelain veneer but have a shorter lifespan (8–10 years on average).
They can also serve to improve the overall appearance and integrity of your teeth. Often, bonding is used as a first step in preserving or restoring your smile, and it plays a crucial role in developing the transitional smiles for our “extreme makeovers.”
We enjoy the creative process of developing customized composite veneers. Ask if they are right for you! Average price ranges from $500 to $950.
We can complete the bonding process in a single visit, immediately and significantly improving your appearance. This is a big plus!
We suggest bite protection for any and all cosmetic treatment to protect your investment. We also advise minimizing your intake of staining foods and suggest whitening your teeth routinely.
