Porcelain Veneers Can Conceal a Range of Dental Blemishes
Dr. Yani can design and place custom porcelain veneers at our Fort Lauderdale, FL, office so you can share your smile with confidence. These thin, customized shells can conceal minor chips, cracks, and other dental blemishes. At Holistic & Healing Dentistry, you can choose from traditional veneers, Lumineers® to dramatically enhance your smile. We will custom design your restorations to achieve your specific goals, and may even be able to provide same-day treatment for quicker results.
Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can address a variety of dental concerns, including:
- Minor dental misalignment
- Chipped, cracked, or worn teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
To qualify for this procedure, Dr. Yani will perform a series of digital x-rays to review the state of your oral health. Any signs of tooth decay and gum disease will first need to be addressed before porcelain veneers can be placed. If you have weak enamel or suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding and jaw clenching), you may not be a good candidate for this treatment. Dr. Yani can discuss all of your cosmetic options and may suggest another procedure if porcelain veneers are not right for your needs.
The Right Option for You
At Holistic & Healing Dentistry, we offer traditional and minimal-prep veneers, as well as LUMINEERS® to help meet our patients’ individualized needs. Dr. Yani will take into consideration your oral health and cosmetic goals to determine which type would work best for you. All are non-porous and durable, allowing for holistic treatment that maintains your optimal oral and overall body health.
Traditional veneers are a long-lasting solution to cover the front of the teeth. Each veneered tooth will require gentle alteration of your tooth to create a seamless fit. Dr. Yani and our team use conservative methods to remove only a very small layer of enamel, usually less than one millimeter. Minimal-prep veneers can often provide similar results to traditional options, but require far less, if any, of your dental enamel be removed. Patients who have suffered from dental erosion often benefit from this option.
Lumineers®, a proprietary form of minimal-prep veneers, typically do not require any enamel removal. These highly lifelike restorations are highly sought after because of their natural-looking color and shine, as well as their strength and durability.
Porcelain Veneers Placement Procedure
Before receiving your veneers, you will meet with Dr. Yani to discuss your goals and design your treatment. Together you can plan the most detailed and accurate procedure to achieve the smile you have always wanted. If you are receiving traditional veneers, Dr. Yani may administer a local anesthetic before carefully removing a very small layer of enamel. This step is necessary to create room for your restorations to lay flat.
Using advanced digital technology, Dr. Yani will take digital impressions to create a three-dimensional mold of your smile for a dental technician to use in fabricating your customized shells. This mold will also help set your expectations for what your smile will look like after treatment. Our team can use the CEREC machine to create your customized veneers from a single block of porcelain, for same-day restorations. LUMINEERS® and restorations created in a dental lab will require an additional one to weeks for fabrication, and we can provide temporaries while you wait.
Once the veneers are ready, Dr. Yani can place them over your teeth and check that they fit properly. If no changes are required, she will apply a special solution and permanently attach the veneers to create your new, uniform smile.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, Dr. Yani can help you achieve your cosmetic goals with porcelain veneers.
