Improve the Aesthetics of Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers in Florida

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile because of chips, gaps, or other imperfections in your teeth, high-quality porcelain dental veneers may be right for you. Veneers are designed to correct minor cosmetic imperfections in otherwise healthy teeth. If you are ready to improve the appearance of your smile, call our skilled dentists in Florida for a consultation.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?

Veneers are made from thin layers of dental-grade porcelain that resemble natural tooth enamel. The veneer is affixed to the surface of the tooth using a special adhesive to correct aesthetic issues affecting the teeth.

The process begins with the dentist making a mold of your teeth so that they look and feel as natural as possible. Depending on the type of veneer, the dentist may have to remove a small amount of your natural tooth enamel, but this process is painless. Once secured in place, your veneers won’t stain or shift out of place and should feel as comfortable as your natural teeth.

Who Is a Candidate for the Porcelain Veneers Procedure?

Veneers are most often used to correct the following types of cosmetic dental problems:

Imperfections involving the size and shape of the teeth:

Teeth that are chipped, shortened because of tooth grinding, or that are out of proportion for the size and shape of your face can make you feel less confident. Veneers, which attach securely and comfortably to the front of the tooth, can make you feel more pulled together when facing a wedding, job interview, or other major event.

Discoloration

Age, smoking, medications, and even the foods that you eat and drink can make your teeth look yellow and dingy. While at-home and professional whitening treatments can make your teeth several shades whiter, they do have limits. Veneers, on the other hand, can be customized to the exact shade of brightness that you want.

Misalignment and Gaps

Veneers are an effective way to correct minor gaps and spacing issues in your smile. Veneers are ideal for adults who may feel self-conscious wearing traditional braces.

During your consultation, our Florida dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine if veneers are the right option for your dental issues.

Are Veneers the Same as Porcelain Crowns?

While veneers and crowns are made from the same materials and permanently alter the overall appearance of the teeth, they do work differently and are designed for different dental issues. Veneers only cover the front surface of the teeth. A crown, on the other hand, covers the entire tooth down to the gums, which is why they are sometimes referred to as caps or porcelain teeth. Because of how they are applied, crowns typically require the removal of more tooth enamel than veneers in order to fit properly. And, because they cover the entire tooth, crowns are often used to strengthen teeth that have been compromised by decay, trauma, or other issues. Crowns are also commonly used on the molars since they can withstand greater chewing force than veneers.

How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?

Each patient is unique, so the cost of dental veneers can vary. The severity of your dental issues, the type of veneer used, and the number of veneers required will determine your final porcelain veneers cost. Call a practice near you for help finding the right veneers for your needs and budget.

Is Veneer Porcelain Durable?

With proper care, veneers can last and look beautiful for decades. Of course, you should never try to open bags, bottles, or other items with your teeth since this can damage the veneers.

What Makes Lumineers® Unique?

Lumineers® is a special brand of ultra-thin veneer. Because they are so thin, Lumineers typically do not require the removal of any of the natural tooth enamel. Lumineers are durable enough to last up to 20 years and are highly translucent for a completely natural appearance.

How Do I Care for Porcelain Veneers?

Just like natural teeth, you should floss daily and brush at least twice a day. If you tend to clench or grind your teeth when you sleep, you should talk to your dentist about a custom-made mouth guard to protect your veneers. While you are free to eat most foods, you should avoid biting into candy apples or other hard foods if your veneers are located on your front teeth.
