Porcelain Veneers


Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can effectively improve the appearance of your teeth. They are specifically designed to address different imperfections, resulting in a more attractive smile and increased self-assurance.

Porcelain ceramic veneers are a popular solution for correcting various dental flaws such as fissures, gaps, and stains. Veneers are known for their natural appearance and ability to reflect light, which is similar to natural tooth enamel.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Benefits of porcelain veneers at Sindledecker Dentistry in Boca Raton, Florida include the following:

  • Bright, even, and straight smile
  • Bite shape improvement
  • Prevention of further damage to teeth
  • Color matching actual teeth

The veneer procedure is tailored to suit the specific goals and preferences of every patient. Veneers are a viable option for individuals who have teeth that are broken or cracked, as well as those who have stains or other dental problems.

The Process for Porcelain Veneers

In order to facilitate veneer bonding, dental professionals may opt to etch a thin layer of tooth enamel from the teeth to create an ideal adhesive surface. Dental impressions are necessary in order to create a personalized veneer solution. Once an impression of your teeth is taken, it is sent to a dental technician who will utilize it to create your custom, personalized veneers.

When the veneers are finished, a careful alignment process is conducted to ensure their accurate placement. The process of bonding veneers involves securely attaching them to your teeth.
Once the bonding process is complete, your newly applied veneers undergo a refinement process to enhance their appearance. This refinement aims to achieve a natural sheen that closely resembles the look of natural tooth enamel.

Caring for Your New Veneers

It is vital to take good care of your veneers once they are in place. This will ensure that they remain undamaged, retain their adhesive properties, and keep their teeth-matching color.

After getting veneers placed, it is advisable to refrain from eating for a few hours. The first period after getting veneers is important for allowing them to stabilize properly. When you resume your regular routine after the stabilization period, it is important to adjust your eating habits. Veneers can be vulnerable to damage from hard or chewy foods, even if they are securely attached to your teeth. Foods that are acidic can potentially harm veneers.

With veneers, you should limit the consumption of the following foods and beverages:

o Hard or sticky candies
o Ice
o Raw Vegetables
o Alcohol

Veneers are specifically designed to have a high resistance to stains. However, your teeth, as well as the adhesive materials used with your veneers, lack the ability to repair themselves. When individuals consume large amounts of foods that can stain teeth, it can result in a noticeable difference in color between veneers and natural teeth. Below is a list of foods and drinks that have staining properties, which you may want to consider limiting your consumption of:

o Coffee
o Tea
o Soda
o Red wine
o Red sauce
o Dark fruits

Because in many cases avoiding the aforementioned foods and beverages are difficult, if not unavoidable, brushing your teeth after consuming these items can help to avoid staining your teeth.
