Image is everything these days, which is why more and more people are turning to cosmetic dentistry. Maybe you’re considering a smile makeover, but you’re not quite sure where to start.

An incredibly versatile treatment, veneers can correct virtually all smile flaws in as little as two appointments. To learn more about how veneers in Daytona Beach can help you, keep reading below, or give our dental team a call today!

What Are Dental Veneers?

A dental veneer is an extremely thin porcelain shell that fits over the front surface of a tooth, hiding years’ worth of aesthetic imperfections and making it appear flawless. Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, stained, gapped, or even slightly crooked, there’s a good chance that placing veneers over them will correct all of these issues at the same time!

Rest assured that your veneers will look like a natural part of your smile, as each veneer is customized based on your unique needs. Additionally, dental porcelain resembles tooth enamel quite well while also being more resistant to staining.

The Process of Getting Veneers

First, you’ll attend a consultation, where your cosmetic dentist in Daytona Beach will assess your candidacy for veneers. If our team decides to move forward with the veneers process, you can expect your smile transformation to take two appointments.

During the first visit, we clean your teeth and remove a thin layer of enamel from the surface to ensure the veneers sit flush. Then, we capture impressions of your mouth. We send these impressions to a dental lab, where a team of expert technicians crafts your veneers to meet your unique needs. This process can take a few weeks, so we’ll attach temporary veneers to your teeth in the meantime. Once your permanent veneers arrive at our office, you’ll return to have them bonded to your teeth.

Veneers FAQs

Veneers in Daytona Beach are a great solution to correct several cosmetic imperfections using a single procedure. You will enjoy natural-looking results that boost your confidence. However, they do require you to permanently alter your teeth. We understand you may have several questions about the treatment before you are ready to commit to transforming your smile. Below, we take the time to answer your questions and address your concerns to help you feel confident in your decision. Of course, you’re always welcome to call us if you have any additional questions!

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Even though veneers are thin, they are quite durable. On average, veneers last between 10 and 15 years. If you take good care of them, they could even last for 30 years or longer!

The most common reason why veneers break down and need replacement is damage resulting from failure to care for the underlying teeth. That’s why good oral care is still crucial when you have veneers.

How Do You Maintain Veneers?

To keep your veneers in pristine condition for as long as possible, you’ll need to maintain the teeth underneath them. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to clean all surfaces of your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day. You should also use a high-quality dental floss to clean around the gumline and in between the teeth daily.

To prevent damaging your veneers, do not use your teeth as tools, chew on inedible objects, or bite overly hard foods. You should also wear an athletic mouthguard when playing sports and a nightguard if you tend to grind and clench your teeth while you sleep.

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

When getting veneers, the end goal is to create a beautiful smile where all of your visible teeth match. Our dentists will therefore recommend the appropriate number of veneers that can best meet that goal, usually an even number. In many cases, this number is six to eight, although some people require as many as 10 or 12. Of course, it’s possible to only receive one veneer if you’re only interested in correcting a single flawed tooth.

Do Veneers Feel Like Real Teeth?

Once your final veneers are placed, they should feel completely natural inside your mouth. In fact, most of our patients with veneers forget they even have them after a certain point! This is because we design each veneer with your specific smile in mind. The impressions that we take of your teeth ensure a flawless fit, and because we remove a small section of enamel, the veneers shouldn’t protrude within your smile. It’s also worth noting that dental porcelain is smooth enough that it shouldn’t irritate the soft tissues in your mouth.
