They are minimally-invasive and seriously beautiful -- keep reading to find out more about how veneers work and whether or not they are the right solution for you.

What Are Porcelain Veneers? What Do They Fix?

woman in scarf smiling Dental veneers are thin coverings that are bonded onto the front surface of the teeth that show when you smile. We call these teeth the “Social 6,” because they are what people see when you speak, smile, and laugh. Their appearance is very important for your overall self-confidence. Because veneers work by simply covering up imperfections, they can “fix” just about any cosmetic issue that affects otherwise healthy teeth.

Dental veneers are a solution for the following common problems:

 

  • Chipped teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth that have not responded to teeth whitening treatments
  • Slightly gapped teeth
  • Misaligned or off-center teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth (like too pointy or short)
  • Teeth with a chalky or pitted and grooved surface

 

What Is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are placed over the course of two visits to the dentist’s office. In the first appointment, we will prepare your teeth for the new layer of porcelain by removing a sliver of enamel from the surface of each tooth. This step makes room for the coverings so they do not appear bulky or make your lips puff out. Then, impressions of your teeth will be taken and temporary veneers will be placed to cover the teeth while your veneers are created.

Once your veneers are ready (about a week later), you return to the dental office for their final placement. Your cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville will check to make sure the veneers look and fit just like they should, make any necessary final adjustments, and then bond each veneer securely onto your teeth.

Are porcelain Veneers Right for You?

Many adults who wish to dramatically improve the appearance of their smiles can benefit from porcelain veneers. You should be in good oral health without tooth decay or gum disease. Your dentist will recommend a checkup and cleaning before you begin the treatment. People who grind their teeth at night or who play contact sports should invest in a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect the veneers. With proper care and maintenance, your veneers can be expected to last for 10 years or more.
