If you find yourself concealing your smile due to chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth, it can adversely impact your overall happiness and health.

Discover why Dr. Eli Abbo is one of the best dentists in Davie, FL, for smile rejuvenation.
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.
Porcelain veneers offer numerous advantages that elevate your smile’s appearance without the inconvenience of traditional treatments like teeth whitening. These benefits include:
To determine if you’re a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers, consider the following factors:
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.
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.
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.
The aftercare for porcelain veneers is relatively straightforward. Here are some essential tips to ensure the longevity and beauty of your new smile:
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.
To accommodate the veneers, your dentist will remove a small portion of the enamel from your natural teeth. This helps ensure a proper fit and natural appearance. Your natural teeth remain protected under the dental veneers.
