Is the appearance of your smile making you feel self-conscious?

At Palm Beach Dental, our aim is for all our patients to have healthy smiles that they love. Our dental team has helped many patients achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile with veneers.

We take pride in offering our patients the highest quality, hand-crafted porcelain veneers. Porcelain is one of the most durable and stain-resistant materials. This material also reflects light as your natural teeth would. Consequently, porcelain veneers offer the longest lasting and most natural-looking results.

Veneers offer a non-invasive, fast and effective solution to many cosmetic dental issues. Our dentists use porcelain veneers to whiten, straighten or reshape smiles – sometimes a combination of all three!

Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics”. It’s important to note though, that veneers cannot change the position of your teeth. Rather, they cover up the appearance of misalignment.

Porcelain Veneers Palm Beach

From correcting misshapen, crooked or broken teeth to closing gaps and helping cover up stains, veneers help enhance the overall appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers are custom-made, wafer-thin porcelain shells. They get bonded to the front surface of your teeth, resulting in a perfect smile with little downtime!

The process for getting porcelain veneers may vary slightly from patient to patient. Generally speaking, you can expect it to look like this:

The first part of the process is a consultation appointment with one of our dentists. They will take the time to get to know you and understand your smile concerns and new smile goals. Your dentist will take a scan of your mouth during this step and also explain everything you need to know about getting veneers. This consultation is a great opportunity to ask your dentist any questions you may have.
During this exciting part of the process, you’ll get to test drive your new smile, commitment-free! This step allows you to see what your new smile will look like before you start treatment giving you the chance to ‘edit’ it until you feel like it’s your perfect, dream smile. At this point, you’ll also choose the ideal shade of white for your veneers.
This step involves the preparation of your teeth where we remove any old, discoloured or leaking fillings from your teeth and clean your tooth enamel. Once your teeth are prepared, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and gums to send to the laboratory. The laboratory will then create your custom porcelain veneers. This part of the process usually takes about two weeks. Your dentist may fit you with temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the interim.
When your porcelain veneers are ready, it’s time to have them bonded to your teeth. Your dentist will begin by removing your temporary veneers. They will then check the fit of your permanent set and let you see what it looks like. They will make any minor adjustments needed for the perfect look and fit before bonding them into place.
We genuinely care about your results. So, we encourage you to visit us for a follow-up appointment about a week after having your veneers fitted. This lets your dentist assess how your gums are responding to your veneers and make any final adjustments you may need.

Caring For Your Veneers

Taking good care of your veneers will help extend their life. Porcelain veneers tend to last an average of 10 to 15 years, however, with appropriate care they can last more than this.

Veneers need the same care as your teeth. They do not make your teeth immune to decay, so maintaining good oral hygiene is essential. You should brush your teeth as you normally would, twice a day. Be sure to use a soft-bristle toothbrush and brush in small and gentle circular motions. Daily flossing is also key.

You should ensure you keep up with regular dental check-ups and cleans. During a dental check-up, your dentist can check your veneers for any signs of vulnerability. They can also keep your teeth free of tartar build-up, helping keep both your teeth and veneers in their best possible condition.

Remember that anything that can chip or crack your teeth can also chip or crack your veneers. Be mindful when eating hard foods like nuts, for example. If you grind your teeth or clench your jaw, your dentist can help you protect your teeth and veneers from the excessive force this places on them with a night guard.
