If you are embarrassed by the appearance of your damaged or imperfect front teeth, it’s time for a solution. The dentists at Tarpon Shores Dental help people feel great about their smiles once again with porcelain veneers in Englewood. Thin coverings made of dental porcelain, veneers look and feel like the natural teeth -- just much better than the ones they cover up.
Veneers are tooth-shaped coverings that are permanently affixed to the front side of the teeth that show when you smile. Here, veneers dramatically enhance or restore their size, shape, color, and overall appearance.
Porcelain veneers work to correct a number of cosmetic imperfections, from minor chips to major stains. Some of the most common uses for dental veneers include improving the appearance of…
Virtually any cosmetic issue can be improved with veneers. However, weak, worn, or decayed teeth are probably better served by a restorative treatment. Dental crowns made from aesthetic ceramic or porcelain are a good option for restoring form and function to damaged teeth.
Crowded or misaligned teeth benefit most from traditional orthodontics. Your dentist can help you understand which option is best for your smile.
Your veneers are applied over two visits to the Tarpon Shores Dental office. In the first appointment, you and your doctor will discuss your smile, including how your teeth got into their current state, and what you would like to achieve with porcelain veneers. Bring in photos of smilies you like to help demonstrate your goals.
Once a treatment plan has been put in place, your dentist will begin by preparing your teeth for the veneers. It is necessary to remove a bit of enamel from the surface of each tooth to make room for the new layer that will be affixed on top. Your dentist then takes impressions of the teeth and covers them with temporary veneers.
In the time between appointments, your permanent veneers are crafted in a separate lab. Your temporaries give you the first taste of life with a new and improved smile -- but just wait, because the best is yet to come.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, they are sent back to our office and you return for their final placement. Using local anesthesia as desired for maximum comfort, your dentist removes the temporary veneers and checks to make sure the new ones look, fit, and feel like they should. Once any necessary adjustments are made, your veneers are securely affixed to your teeth!
