Dental Veneers – Fort Lauderdale, FL
Dental Veneers at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa — Because Your Smile Deserves Nothing Less Than The Best
Dental Veneers Deliver Dazzling Smiles
If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be struggling to bite and chew, or you may feel embarrassed to talk, laugh, and socialize. Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry in which a shell or layer of tooth-colored porcelain, ceramic, or composite is placed over the facial surfaces of teeth to correct worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration, and chips or cracks. Dr.Patty is known for specially-designed-for-you veneers, and we have an option for every price range.
In addition to creating bright, white smiles with beautifully-aligned and shapely teeth, the porcelain veneers we use to boost our clients’ appearances and self-images in Fort Lauderdale, FL also protect the surface of damaged teeth. Veneers may eliminate your need for more extensive treatments. Other benefits of veneers include durability, improved smile esthetics, and little to no removal of tooth structure — as compared to crowns.
Veneers are one of the most popular and trusted procedures in cosmetic dentistry, thanks to the fact that they can totally change the way you look and feel about your smile! Missing, damaged, and misaligned teeth can result in noticeable changes to your facial appearance, a decline in your health, and increased discomfort or self-consciousness. Dental veneers are the “gold standard” solution, restoring your smile aesthetics and dental function.
Our experienced team at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa provides our clients with many varieties of dental veneers in Ft. Lauderdale, FL to meet their unique cosmetic and structural needs. We can help you achieve a new smile for an enhanced quality of life.
Dental Veneers Provide an Easy Way to Achieve a Smile Worthy of the Red Carpet
As seen on many celebrities today, porcelain veneers are commonly used in smile makeovers. They can mask the effects of aging and color stain issues resulting from years of coffee, tea, wine-drinking, tobacco-use, and other habits. Veneers are often referred to as “instant orthodontics”. Do you think you need braces? Veneers only require minimal tooth preparation, and they can help you achieve beautiful esthetics. Veneers are an excellent alternative to other painful and potentially traumatizing procedures.
When you entrust Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa with your smile, you can relax while we restore the former natural radiance to your teeth. Our smile stimulation technology will enable you to design a completely new Hollywood-worthy smile based on your favorite Hollywood celebrity!

We Use Digital Impressions Instead of Physical Impressions During Our Processes for Most Veneer Types
We use a noninvasive digital scanning wand to create a digital impression of your teeth instead of requiring physical impressions for all of our veneer options except for Composite Veneers. This makes the process even more stress-free during your visit(s) to our relaxing, spa-like office. We are here to guide you as you explore the different types of dental veneers. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation so we can assess the right veneer option(s) for you. Read below to learn more about each type of dental veneer.
Porcelain Veneers Vs. Other Types Of Veneers
While veneers have always been popular, their popularity is growing due to newer variations and constant improvements, including a more natural appearance. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front of your teeth. They are crafted specifically for your teeth and made with a material that resembles your natural enamel.
Porcelain veneers are typically about 0.5mm, and the usual process requires tooth preparation and a local anesthetic and/or sedation to minimize sensitivity. With porcelain veneers, acrylic temporaries are placed until your permanent veneers are ready to replace them.
We offer different types of porcelain veneers to fit your needs:
Additionally, we offer a popular variety of non-porcelain veneers:
Porcelain veneers are popular among many people due to their natural-looking appearance, resistance to stains, and long-lasting durability. Porcelain veneers are available in different types, and we use Feldspathic porcelain — the softest and most beautiful type — for the majority of our clients’ smile makeovers.
Porcelain veneers provide a beautiful, natural appearance that is resistant to future discoloration and can last up to 10 years. Overall, porcelain veneers offer many advantages, making them a popular choice for dental patients seeking a brighter, more confident smile.
da Vinci Veneers
da Vinci Veneers are hand-crafted in a Californian laboratory through a process incorporating multiple layers of porcelain, allowing for customization in color and shape while providing a natural-looking smile. This option is a good choice when you require a moderate and relatively unadventurous dental restoration and budget is not an issue.
Compared to other alternatives, da Vinci Veneers offer resistance to stains and superior strength. Additionally, da Vinci Veneers are known for their emphasis on precision, detail, and customization, making them an excellent choice for those seeking to improve their smile.
Emax veneers are made of a unique type of porcelain that has excellent strength, durability, and stain resistance. They also have a high degree of translucency, which closely mimics natural teeth. Emax veneers require less preparation than many other types of veneers, and they provide a long-lasting and durable solution, giving you a beautiful smile.
We use various types of veneers including ultra-thin Lumineers® custom designed to give you the smile you have long dreamed of achieving. They are designed to be ultra-thin at just 0.3mm (about the thickness of a contact lens), which enables seamless application over your natural teeth without removal of tooth enamel.
Unlike the minimally-invasive process for traditional veneers, Lumineers® won’t require shots or removal of sensitive tooth structure, making the experience totally painless. They are even reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
CEREC Same-Day Veneers
CEREC Same-Day Veneers are a convenient, fast, and effective way to restore your smile, all in a single visit to our office. We craft CEREC Same-Day Veneers from ceramic using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) in our spa-like office. These veneers provide a combination of quality, strength, and precision that has garnered them immense popularity among our clients. CEREC Same-Day Veneers offer a convenient and quick option for restoring your smile.
Composite veneers are a quick and simple solution to achieve an improvement in your smile, often only requiring one appointment. They are made from the same tooth bonding material that is applied directly to a tooth’s surface by the doctor. Composite veneers are a cost-effective and convenient way to fix chipped or discolored teeth and enhance your smile.
Composite veneers are the only veneer option for which we will use physical impressions instead of a noninvasive digital scanning wand to guide preparation of your veneers. Additionally, this process involves building the veneers directly onto your teeth using our composite material, rather than only using this same material only as adhesive to bond separately-prepared veneers to your teeth. Many of our clients instead opt for our 3D Printed Resin Veneers, described below.
3D Printed Resin Veneers
3D printing has advanced dentistry, providing us a fast technique for producing detailed dental veneers with computer accuracy that we can often achieve during a single appointment. 3D Printed Resin Veneers are made from FDA-approved dental-specific resins using a 3D printer process. They offer a natural-looking finish and are bonded permanently to your teeth. We can tailor them to precisely address a broad range of dental concerns including discoloration, tooth damage, and misalignment. 3D printed resin veneers are the most accurate veneer option.
One significant benefit of choosing 3D Printed Resin Veneers over traditional methods is that they are much more cost-effective and less invasive. We are able to generate a digital impression of your mouth with a scanning wand and then pre-design veneers accurately so you can experience exceptional durability with the same level of beauty as porcelain. This process is quick and cost-effective, and it does not require us to take physical impressions or build the veneers directly on your teeth. Ask us about this exciting, innovative, and less invasive option to enhance your smile in as little as one visit.
We apply 3D Printed Resin Veneers in one visit by following these steps:
- First, we will remove 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel from your teeth in preparation for the procedure.
- Next, we will take a digital impression of your teeth with a noninvasive scanning wand. That digital impression will guide our 3D printout of your veneers.
- Next, we’ll bond your veneers, permanently attaching each veneer to your teeth with a special dental cement adhesive that we will then harden using a blue curing light.
- After one visit, you leave ready to present your beautiful new smile to the world!
