What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a transformative cosmetic dental solution that can enhance your smile’s aesthetics. These thin, custom-made shells bond to the front surfaces of your teeth. Whether it’s a single tooth or your entire smile, porcelain veneers can help regain self-assuredness and achieve a camera-ready appearance.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer numerous advantages that elevate your smile’s appearance without the inconvenience of traditional treatments like teeth whitening. These benefits include:

  • Customization: Porcelain veneers match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth. 
  • Enhanced Protection: Dental veneers can help shield your teeth from temperature sensitivity and external factors that can harm your enamel.
  • Enamel Restoration: For teeth with lost or damaged enamel, porcelain veneers can effectively restore the strength and appearance of the teeth.
  • Enamel Preservation: Porcelain veneers require only a minimal amount of enamel reduction, preserving the health of your natural teeth.
  • Stain Resistance: Dental veneers will maintain their bright and white appearance even when exposed to common staining substances like coffee, tea, and red wine.
  • Longevity: When well cared for, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years

Candidacy for Porcelain Veneers

To determine if you’re a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers, consider the following factors:

  • Discoloration and Stains: Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice if you have discolored, stained, or yellow teeth that do not respond well to traditional teeth whitening methods. 
  • Alignment Issues: Porcelain veneers address alignment problems, such as misaligned or unevenly sized teeth.
  • Damage Repair: If you have teeth with cracks, chips, or fractures, porcelain veneers can conceal these imperfections and restore the appearance of your teeth. 
  • Worn-Down Teeth: For individuals with worn-down teeth due to grinding or other factors, porcelain veneers can rebuild and rejuvenate the tooth structure.

The Porcelain Veneer Process

Initial Consultation and Teeth Cleaning

Our expert dentists can place your veneers and have you smiling with confidence in just two easy appointments at our Davie, FL, office. You’ll first meet with Dr. Abbo, where he’ll determine if porcelain veneers suit your needs or recommend an alternative cosmetic treatment

Impressions and Temporary Dental Veneers

To ensure your complete comfort, we’ll apply a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and gums. Dr. Abbo will then delicately remove a small portion of the enamel from your tooth and capture digital impressions. 

These images are transmitted to our laboratory, where lab technicians will craft your custom dental veneers. Dr. Abbo will place temporary porcelain veneers to protect your teeth while your custom shells are being fabricated, a process that typically takes one to two weeks.

Final Fitting Appointment

Once your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to our Davie, FL, office. We’ll remove the temporary dental veneers and thoroughly clean the treated teeth. Dr. Abbo will securely attach your new veneers using a durable, long-lasting resin.

Aftercare for Porcelain Veneers

The aftercare for porcelain veneers is relatively straightforward. Here are some essential tips to ensure the longevity and beauty of your new smile:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly
  • Avoid excessive consumption of staining substances such as coffee and red wine
  • Attend regular dental check-ups to ensure the health and condition of your dental veneers

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are designed to be durable and can last up to 15 years or more with proper care. Practice good oral hygiene and attend biannual dental visits to keep your dental veneers looking and performing their best. 

The cost of porcelain veneers can vary depending on various factors, including the number of veneers needed and your location. Consult your dentist for a personalized cost estimate. It’s also wise to contact your insurance provider to learn if they cover any costs of porcelain veneers.

The process of getting porcelain veneers is typically not painful. Local anesthesia can help ensure your comfort during the procedure. Some individuals may experience minor discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, but this is usually temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
