Even if everything else in your life is sailing along just fine, esthetic dental flaws can make you feel self-conscious. You want to smile confidently around friends and co-workers, but it’s difficult when you’re convinced that all anyone’s noticing about you is a less than perfect smile.

Dental flaws come in all shapes and sizes; you may have a chipped tooth or uneven gaps and spaces between teeth. One thing all these issues have in common, though, is that they can easily be addressed with porcelain veneers.

What Veneers Can Do for Your Smile

A veneer is a tooth-shaped shell of porcelain that is affixed to the front of a tooth to create a new surface. Since veneers conceal the flaw, they can be used to fix a multitude of problems like chipped or broken teeth, uneven gaps and spacing, teeth that look too long, too short or poorly shaped, and severely stained or worn teeth.

A Better Smile in 3 Simple Steps

Once you and your dentist decide that porcelain veneers in Orlando, FL are the right choice for you, the process couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Dr. Gary Michaelson will first prepare the surface of your tooth by removing a thin layer of dental enamel about the thickness of your veneer. This step will ensure that the veneer fits naturally against your gum line.
  2. We will take comfortable digital impressions (no messy paste!) to create a model of your teeth that will be used to design your new veneers. We send the information to a custom dental lab where your veneers are designed just for you according to our specifications.
  3. In two to three weeks when your veneers are ready, you will return to our office where we will adjust the fit of your veneers and bond them securely to the surface of your teeth.

That’s all there is to it; just three simple steps to a smile that looks so great that there’s no reason to hide it from the world, and all you want to do is show it off!
