Veneers can assist with obtaining the smile you’ve always wanted. To have veneers installed, visit your board-certified dentists, Dr. Jocelyn Ocampo and Dr. Jun Park in Eldersburg, MD.


Many of the over-the-counter products available to consumers contain lower concentrations of the active ingredient peroxide, which means less opportunity for error during application.

Due to the lower concentration, some stains can not be treated with an at-home brightening kit. A higher concentration can be too harsh on teeth and gums. In these cases, veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry option for patients attempting to whiten their smile.

Veneers are thin pieces of material that are placed on top of the tooth to correct cosmetic flaws. They are helpful for covering deeper stains on the teeth that can not be removed.

Installing your veneers

Your Eldersburg dentist will place the veneers over your teeth, instantly improving your smile. If you have dental decay and other concerns, you will have to work with your dentist to solve these first before getting veneers installed.

Healthy teeth and gums have the best chance with the successful installation of veneers. Veneers can last for up to 15 years if maintained properly.

How do I know veneers are right for me?

Veneers may be the right cosmetic dentistry option for you if you have the following:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Crooked teeth
