Your smile is often the first thing that people notice about you, so why not leave a lasting impression with your stunning smile? If you wish to have health and beauty restored to structurally flawed or dingy-looking teeth, our Orlando area dental team can custom-craft porcelain veneers specifically for your smile. Dental imperfections can leave you feeling self-conscious and embarrassed, and may even keep you from feeling truly attractive. Our dentists can design for you a natural-looking and flawless smile and correct the appearance of your teeth using porcelain veneers, so you can start letting your confidence shine!
Porcelain veneers are wafer thin porcelain shells that are placed over the surfaces of teeth to alter their shape, size, length, color, and texture. Meticulously crafted to blend in with the rest of your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are designed to transform the overall aesthetic of your smile. Porcelain veneers may be an ideal solution for you if your smile is streaked with stains or your teeth are:
We want your cosmetic enhancement to last, which is why our dentists evaluate your gums, teeth, jaw, and bite prior to recommending porcelain veneers. By detecting, diagnosing, and treating dental conditions, including a misaligned bite, prior to installing the porcelain shells, we can ensure that your enhancement will last. Your bite will continue to evolve and your teeth will shift over time, so it is important that your bite is corrected initially. That way, your veneers will continue to look beautiful with every year that passes.
Once it has been determined that porcelain veneers are ideal for your smile, our dentists will begin designing your cosmetic enhancement. Following a thorough smile analysis, our team will capture detailed images of your mouth. Using digital imaging, our artistic skills, and your input, our team will mill a diagnostic “wax-up” and then transfer the mock-up design to your smile, so you can get of feel of how the porcelain veneers will appear once installed.
Just like you wouldn’t purchase a car without test-driving it, you shouldn’t have porcelain veneers permanently placed on your teeth without first trying them on. It is for that reason that Dr. Ross and Dr. Schmitt create your temporary veneers out of the “wax-up” design and place them within your smile while your veneers are crafted by one of our outside laboratory specialists. A lot of methodical planning and detailing goes into the customization of your veneer, so from the time the mock-up is created to the moment your veneers are precisely placed, our dentists will be adhering to a mapped out plan which we designed specifically for your smile.
Prior to placing the pristine porcelain veneers on your teeth, our Orlando area dentists will have you try on the fabricated shells one last time. Minor adjustments will be made to the porcelain, if necessary, and then your tooth’s enamel will be shaved down. Our dentists remove a conservative amount of enamel so your tooth will experience less sensitivity following the installation of the porcelain. In some gases, gum contouring may be necessary in order to help you achieve desirable cosmetic results. Once a portion of your tooth has been removed, the remaining structure has been etched, and the surface has been cleansed, our doctors will bond your porcelain veneer to your tooth. You will be amazed by the dramatic and instant transformation.
The benefits of porcelain veneers are not purely physical. In fact, the cosmetic dentistry option offers a variety of benefits, which include:
