How Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Does your smile embarrass you? Do you hate the flaws in your teeth? If so, you are not alone. People rarely have perfect smiles. However, it is possible to achieve your perfect smile with dental veneers. 

Dental veneers are thin shells that your dentist can bond to your teeth to cover flaws ranging from tooth crookedness to discoloration.

How Do Veneers Work

Since veneers are non-invasive and versatile, dentists often use them in smile makeovers to create a new look for their patients. 

Our dental veneers are made of durable, wafer-thin porcelain. During your dental appointment, Dr. Gary Michaelson, our skilled dentist at Alafaya Center for Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, removes a small amount of enamel from your teeth to prepare them for veneers. Then custom veneers are designed for your new, beautiful smile. You may have one tooth that needs a veneer or multiple teeth. Once your porcelain veneers are created, Dr. Michaelson bonds the thin porcelain veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth. 

It is a quick, easy dental procedure that is ideal for fixing minor cosmetic problems. 

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

In addition to covering flaws, porcelain veneers provide dental patients with many benefits, including:

Easy to Maintain

Your porcelain veneers require little additional care outside of your normal oral hygiene routine. Brush your teeth a minimum of twice per day and floss at least once every day. Also, visit us regularly for exams and dental cleanings. During your regularly scheduled exams, we will check on your veneers and answer any questions you have about caring about them. 

They Keep Your Smile Bright

Porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant than your natural teeth, which keeps your smile brighter for longer. If you love having a bright, white smile, porcelain veneers can help you achieve that!

They Are a Long-Lasting Cosmetic Fix

Porcelain veneers can last a decade or more with proper care. To properly maintain your veneers, practice good oral hygiene, avoid food and beverages that cause staining, like berries, wine, or tomato sauce, and don’t chew on or eat hard foods or other objects, like ice. 

Overall, dental veneers are an excellent way to improve your smile with little hassle. At Alafaya Center for Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we love helping our patients enjoy beautiful smiles with porcelain veneers.
