Veneers are custom-made to blend with your natural smile and cover any number of cosmetic flaws such as teeth that are misaligned, misshapen, or chipped due to trauma. Whether it’s masking a single tooth or your complete smile, porcelain veneers can help you regain your confidence and give you an appearance that’s camera-ready for any occasion.
At Davie Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Bill and Eli Abbo can help restore the look of your teeth and your confidence with this permanent cosmetic treatment.

Our expert dentists can place your veneers and have you smiling with complete confidence in just two easy appointments at our Davie, FL office.

Porcelain veneers are used to treat a variety of dental issues and cosmetic imperfections. Depending on your specific case, veneers may be the right treatment option for you if you’re looking to correct any of the following:
Veneers won’t negatively impact the health of your teeth. While a small amount of enamel is required to be removed, porcelain veneers are effective in improving the look of your smile while also protecting it from further harm. To maintain the health of your teeth, keeping a regular oral hygiene routine is essential. This includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, and attending biannual dental visits with Dr. Abbo at our Davie, FL office.
Porcelain veneers aren’t permanent, but they can last up to 10 to 15 years with proper oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings with your dentist. While veneers need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear, the procedure for doing so is quick and incredibly simple. During your regularly scheduled visits, your dentist will evaluate your porcelain veneers and let you know when it’s time to consider replacing them to maintain the look and feel of your smile.
If your porcelain veneer gets damaged or falls out, we recommend that you only keep the surrounding area clean while you call our Davie, FL practice right away at (954) 434-3331. It’s important that you DON’T try to fix the veneer yourself, as this may cause further damage to your tooth. Your dentist will examine your tooth’s health and have a replacement fixture custom-made so that you can go back to smiling with total confidence.
A majority of dental insurance companies won’t cover the cost of porcelain veneers since it’s considered a cosmetic procedure that’s not medically necessary in most cases. However, we still recommend that you contact your provider to get an accurate understanding of your policy and benefits. At Davie Advanced Dentistry, our team of dentists is here to ensure your teeth receive the necessary dental care they need.
