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.

What are veneers?

Veneers are an anesthetic fix for unsightly teeth. They are made of thin porcelain and used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged. They fix a variety of issues, such as:

  • Stained or discolored teeth, usually a result of drinking coffee or tea, poor hygiene, smoking, chewing tobacco, or tetracycline-containing.
  • Mishappened teeth, like crooked, overcrowded, and irregularly shaped teeth.

What does the process entail?

When you come into the Eldersburg office, your doctor will:

  1. Examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If they decide you are a good candidate, then they'll first deal with any underlying issues, like cavities, first.
  2. They'll remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth, an irreversible process. Your dentist removes some enamel so you don't feel like your teeth are protruding
  3. Your dentist will then take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.

How do you care for your veneers?

In order to take proper care of your veneers, you need to:

  • Brush twice a day while holding your brush at a 40-degree angle
  • Floss at least once before bed
  • Change your toothbrush when it's frayed
  • Use fluoride-containing toothpaste, mouthwash and water
  • Eat healthy food like carrots that scrape teeth clean
