Have you ever wondered what you would look like with a different smile? At Dream Dental, you don’t have to wonder. We can show you! Using smile design technology, we can craft your dream smile right in front of your eyes. Using pictures and scans of your teeth, we can show you what your porcelain veneers will look like before you ever agree to treatment.

Veneers are a great way to fix more than one cosmetic complaint with your teeth. Our cosmetic dentist in Winter Haven can work with you to design and implement changes for a complete smile makeover in as little as two appointments.

Dental Veneers Are Great for People With Multiple Cosmetic Complaints

Porcelain veneers are made in a lab to fit the exact shape of your teeth. We choose the desired shade and shape, and they come back as thin, beautiful porcelain shells. While veneers can be great for people who only need one, long-lasting tooth repair, people often choose them to change the way the “social six” appear when they smile. The six most visible teeth are your social six, and they make a big impression on your appearance.

Because veneers are infinitely customizable, they can fix a number of cosmetic problems, including:

  • Teeth that are too short
  • Gummy smiles
  • Teeth that are oddly shaped
  • Chipped teeth
  • Permanent stains
  • Uneven gums or lengths of teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Misplaced midline (between two front teeth)

Veneers are also great for sensitive teeth. Because they provide an added layer of protection over the enamel, you may experience reduced sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

Are Veneers Permanent? The New Smile Process With Veneers

Because of the way veneers are attached to the tooth, they are completely permanent. If they break or fall off, they will need to be replaced. For most people, this is great news! If you’re worried about the cost of replacing or maintaining them, however, it may be worth talking it over with our dentist.

Here’s why veneers are permanent:

  • Before we take molds of your teeth to fit your veneers, we will remove a layer of enamel. Enamel does not regenerate, so without the protection of the veneers, your teeth will be more sensitive and vulnerable to injury and decay.
  • When your permanent veneers are ready, we will use a bonding agent on the tooth’s surface before applying the dental cement.
  • Each shell is individually affixed to the tooth over the cement, then cured with UV light.
  • After each shell is placed, we will floss around the tooth and clean up any stray bonding material.
  • We repeat this process for as many teeth as there are veneers!

How Long Do Veneers Last?

In ideal circumstances, your veneers can last more than fifty years! One review of current research by the National Institute of Health (NIH) shows that the majority last at least 20 years. That being said, your habits and hygiene will make a huge difference in the lifespan of your new smile. Here are some tips to keep your porcelain shells strong and beautiful for decades:

  • Wear dental night guards, especially if you suffer from nighttime bruxism.
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools, such as to open packages.
  • Don’t bite down on hard foods or inanimate objects. Cut hard-to-eat foods into pieces and avoid sticky, chewy foods like hard caramel.
  • Don’t smoke or vape.
  • Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled electric toothbrush at least twice a day and floss at least once daily.
  • Use a water flosser to keep your gums healthy and free of food debris.
  • Rinse your mouth after eating and drinking if you can’t brush your teeth right away.
