When facing a milestone event, such as a wedding, family reunion, or job interview, having a less than perfect smile can make you feel self-conscious. Veneers are an effective and affordable way to correct chips, gaps, and other cosmetic issues in your teeth. If you have generally healthy teeth but are unhappy with the way they look, call (321) 594-2624 to schedule a consultation with one of our Orlando dentists to find out if dental veneers are right for you.
Veneers, which are made from thin layers of porcelain, are permanently bonded to the front surface of the teeth to mask minor cosmetic imperfections in the color, shape, size, or position of the teeth.
We will provide you with an outline of your porcelain veneers cost following your consultation. The cost can vary from patient to patient based on the type of veneer used, the number of veneers required, and the complexity of the dental issue.
Crowns and veneers are both long-lasting cosmetic procedures that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers simply attach to the front surface of the tooth while crowns, which are sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth, cover the entire tooth. Veneers and crowns are made from the same materials and are customized to match your natural teeth. Crowns are normally preferred when the underlying structure of the tooth is compromised by trauma or decay or for the back teeth that provide the majority of the biting force when chewing. Crowns also require more enamel removal in order to fit properly.
If your teeth are healthy and structurally sound but not as aesthetically pleasing as you would like, veneers may be right for you. Veneers can be used to correct common cosmetic dental issues, including:
Call (321) 594-2624 to schedule a consultation with one of our Orlando dentist to find out if you are a candidate for dental veneers.
The dentist will start by making an impression of your teeth that will be used to make your custom veneers. In some cases, the dentist may remove a small layer of the natural tooth enamel to ensure that the veneer fits properly. The veneer is then bonded to the surface of the tooth using a special adhesive. The process is painless, and the result should look and feel just like your natural teeth.
Veneers may look delicate, but they are actually quite durable and will resist staining. Your veneers should last for decades as long as you practice good dental hygiene and avoid activities that can cause damage, such as opening a bottle with your teeth.
You care for veneers the same way you would natural teeth. You should brush twice a day, floss daily, and see a dentist twice a year for a routine checkup. If you suffer from bruxism, a condition where you clench or grind your teeth while sleeping, you should consider wearing a custom night guard to protect your veneers. If you have veneers on your front teeth, you should avoid biting into hard foods like candy apples.
Creating beautiful smiles is our passion. If your smile isn’t making the impression that you would like, call our Orlando office at (321) 594-2624 for more information about our various cosmetic dentistry options.
