What are Porcelain Veneers?
Crafted from high-quality ceramic material, porcelain veneers are thin shells a cosmetic dentist expertly bonds to the front surface of your teeth after removing a small portion of your tooth enamel to correct various dental issues.
In cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers demonstrate remarkable durability and longevity. They also resist unsightly staining and discoloration far more effectively than other veneer options.
Porcelain Veneers in Florida
We offer several kinds of porcelain veneers to help each client achieve a beautiful smile:
- Traditional Porcelain Veneers – Popular for their aesthetic appeal, porcelain veneers also prioritize your teeth’s safety, using the least harmful material for flawless results that stand the test of time.
- Emax Veneers – Created in one seamless piece, Emax veneers are thin and strong, with high stain resistance, making them a popular option for our clients.
- da Vinci Veneers – Prepared in a California lab, these hand-crafted porcelain veneers combine strength and longevity with strict attention to detail and precision. When the client’s situation calls for a moderate and relatively unadventurous approach to dental restoration, we apply da Vinci Veneers.
- CEREC® Veneers – Crafted from top-quality ceramics, we design and manufacture CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) veneers using state-of-the-art technology in our dental office.
Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer numerous benefits, including:
- Natural appearance: They provide a more natural look than composite resin.
- Stain-resistant: They are less likely to discolor over time than composite resin.
- Longer-lasting: Porcelain veneers can last approximately 10 years, while composite resin veneers typically last 4-8 years.
- Durable: They are less prone to chipping or damage than other veneers.
At our practice, we use Feldspathic porcelain, the softest, most beautiful porcelain veneer, for most of our smile makeovers. We also provide non-porcelain options that may suit your specific needs.
How Does a Dental Professional Apply Porcelain Veneers?
We apply popular standard porcelain veneers and da Vinci veneers in two visits to our tranquil boutique:
- Visit 1: Our skilled cosmetic dentists prepare your teeth by removing a minuscule amount of enamel (0.3 to 0.5 mm) to create space for the veneer. We also take a digital impression of your teeth that we send to our top-tier dental laboratory for custom veneer design.
- Visit 2: All about bonding. After a thorough tooth cleaning, we use special dental cement to permanently attach the veneer to your tooth. To ensure durability, we harden the adhesive with a blue curing light.
How To Properly Care for Your Porcelain Veneers
It’s essential to be aware of potential hazards to protect your porcelain veneers. Certain habits and foods can cause serious damage or wear to your veneers. Here are some things to avoid:
- Using your teeth to open packages
- Hard candy
- Chewing gum
- Other hard or sticky foods
By modifying your habits and diet in minor ways, you can maintain the integrity of your porcelain veneers and enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile.
How Do Porcelain Veneers Differ from Non-Porcelain Veneers?
While porcelain veneers require more preparation, many clients choose them for their appearance, strength, and quality. They are less prone to staining or discoloration, although maintaining proper oral hygiene is crucial. To ensure color consistency and prevent damage, avoid whitening products and use a nonabrasive toothbrush.
