We are excited to offer high-quality, affordable porcelain veneers to our patients in Orlando. This revolutionary cosmetic dental treatment can be used to correct imperfections in the size, spacing, or color of the teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile. Our dentists and staff can help you decide if veneers are the right cosmetic dental treatment for you.
Veneers are custom-made from thin layers of porcelain to blend in with your natural teeth. They are an affordable way to hide cosmetic imperfections in your smile, such as spacing and alignment issues, discoloration, or misshapen teeth.
The dentist uses a special adhesive to permanently attach the veneer to the front surface of the tooth. In most cases, the dentist will also remove a thin layer of tooth enamel to ensure that the veneer fits properly.
Veneers porcelain and crowns are made from the same material; however, they have different applications. Veneers only cover the front surface of the teeth. They are normally used on teeth that are relatively healthy and structurally intact. Crowns cover the entire tooth, so they are typically used when the underlying structure of the tooth needs to be reinforced. Crowns, also referred to as porcelain teeth, also work better on back teeth since they are better able to withstand the increased chewing forces exerted by the molars.
Veneers are an affordable way to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. Your final porcelain veneers cost will be based on the type of veneer used, the number of veneers required, and the overall condition of your teeth. We will provide you with a detailed outline of your cost following your initial consultation.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and will last for decades with the proper care. Of course, you should avoid doing things that could damage your veneers or teeth, such as biting into hard candy apples or opening bottles or packages with your teeth.
Veneers don’t require special care. You simply brush and floss like you do your natural teeth. Of course, you should still visit the dentist for regular dental exams. If you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, you may want to talk to your dentist about a night guard to protect your veneers.
If you choose an ultrathin veneer porcelain, such as Lumineers®, it may be possible to skip this step. Once in place, your veneers will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. With this type of veneer, they could last for 20 years or more.
