Dental veneers are thin shells of durable porcelain or composite resin bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They can conceal flaws like stained or discolored teeth, misaligned teeth, and gaps between your teeth.
These restorations have been used for many years to fix a wide range of aesthetic dental issues, and we use only the best materials and techniques available to ensure quality and durability. Dentist in Tampa, FL at General and Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa works closely with you to assess your teeth and recommend the best veneer type depending on the goals you have for your smile.
These tooth-colored shells are placed over your natural teeth to give them a more pleasing appearance. We can treat multiple issues with veneers, such as discolorations, chips, cracks, and other imperfections that detract from the attractiveness of your smile. With proper care and regular brushing and flossing, your veneers can last up to a decade or more before needing to be replaced!
During your first appointment, we will prepare your teeth for the veneers by shaving down some of the enamel on their front surface to allow the shell to fit comfortably and flush over the tooth.
Next, we will take impressions of your teeth to create a mold to send to our lab so that they can custom-create the veneers to match the shape and size of your teeth. We will also decide on the right shade to match your natural teeth. We will send you home with a temporary set of veneers to wear while the permanent ones are being created.
Finally, after your permanent veneers arrive from the lab, you will return to our office, where we will fit them over your natural tooth structure. We will check the fit and color of the veneers to ensure they are perfect before bonding them in place permanently with dental cement.
One benefit of veneers is that they cover your tooth’s surface, effectively hiding stains or white spots on teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening treatments.
If the surface of a tooth is flawed in any way, including chips, cracks, breaks, uneven surfaces, or gaps between teeth, then porcelain veneers can conceal these imperfections.
If you have misshapen or misaligned teeth or have teeth that are too short for your liking, veneers can give you a more uniform appearance. They can also improve the appearance of large spaces between teeth.
Many patients choose veneers to make their teeth appear whiter and more uniform than they are. Porcelain veneers are placed over the affected teeth and can instantly transform your appearance in just two visits to our dental office.
Veneers can be a simple and quick way to give yourself a complete smile makeover, enhancing your smile and self-confidence.
