Do you smile less than you would like because of chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth? If so, affordable porcelain dental veneers may be the answer. Our experienced Citrus Park dentists are able to improve the aesthetics of healthy teeth using veneers that hide flaws in the position, shape, size, or color of the teeth. Call (813) 448-3957 today to find out how veneers can help you transform your smile.
The veneers, which are made from thin layers of porcelain that resemble the natural enamel of your teeth, are attached to the front surface of the tooth using a special adhesive. Veneers are so natural looking that no one will know that you have them unless you tell them.
Your final porcelain veneers cost is determined by several factors, including the type and number of veneers required and the complexity of your dental issues. Since veneers are normally considered cosmetic, they are often not covered by insurance; however, we will work with you to find a treatment and payment option that will work with your budget.
Crowns and veneers are both permanent tooth restoration options and are made from the same materials. Veneers attach to the front surface of the tooth to correct cosmetic issues while a crown fits over the entire tooth, which is why they are sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth. Because of how they are applied, crowns are preferred in situations where the structure of the tooth has been compromised by trauma or decay. Crowns also tend to work better on back teeth since they provide the majority of the force when chewing.
Veneers can be used to treat a wide range of cosmetic dental problems. For example:

The dentist will start by making a mold of your teeth so that the veneers blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. In most cases, the dentist will remove a thin layer of the natural tooth enamel and then attach the veneer using a special adhesive. This process is painless. Once in place, your new veneers will look and function just like your natural teeth.
Our veneers are made from the highest quality materials and can last for decades with proper care. Just like natural teeth, however, veneers can be damaged if you use them for activities other than chewing, such as to open a bottle or package.
Our dentists do offer Lumineers®, which are ultra-thin veneers that require little to no tooth prep. Despite the fact that they are so thin, Lumineers can last up to 20 years.
One of the advantages of veneers is that they do not require special care. You brush and floss just like you do your natural teeth. Of course, you should still see your dentist twice a year for regular exams and cleanings. If you tend to clench or grind your teeth, you may want to consider having your dentist prescribe a custom mouth guard to help protect your teeth. While you are free to eat most foods, you should avoid biting into candy apples and other hard foods, especially if your veneers are on your front teeth.
Your smile is your calling card. If your teeth are damaged, misshapen, or discolored, your smile may not be sending the message that you would like. Porcelain dental veneers are a convenient and affordable way to achieve a smile that you can be proud to show off. Call (813) 448-3957 today to schedule an appointment.
