Concerned about the appearance of your smile?
Porcelain veneers are a perfect solution for correcting several cosmetic dental issues at once. Altamonte Springs cosmetic dentist Dr. Sonbol has helped transform many smiles with this easy, natural-looking cosmetic dentistry solution.
Many people choose porcelain veneers because they correct a number of aesthetic dental problems. They’re handy for masking chips, gaps, worn teeth, and cracked teeth. And since veneers can be customized to any shade, you can use them to brighten your smile, as well.
How Porcelain Veneers Improve Smiles
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front surface of a tooth to change its color, shape, and width. Veneers can be used in a variety of ways to transform your smile, whether you're looking for a complete smile makeover or you just want to repair a chipped tooth.
Veneers never look fake because they’re made from high quality dental porcelain with light-reflecting properties that closely mimic your natural enamel. You may think of porcelain as a delicate material, but veneers are actually strong and can stand up to normal wear and tear. Their smooth, glasslike finish also makes them highly resistant to stains like coffee and red wine.
Porcelain veneers allow Dr. Sonbol to provide conservative treatment with natural-looking results. He regularly uses veneers to help make our patients’ smiles look brighter, straighter, and more youthful.
The Veneers Procedure
It usually takes two to three visits to complete the porcelain veneer procedure:
- During the first visit, Dr. Sonbol will carefully shape the teeth to prepare them for your veneers. He removes only a tiny amount of enamel to ensure a secure and comfortable fit. Because of this step, porcelain veneers are not a reversible procedure.
- Your veneers will be custom-made to our specifications by trained technicians in a dental laboratory we trust.
- While your veneers are being prepared, we’ll provide temporary veneers to protect your teeth.
- When your veneers are ready, you’ll return, and Dr. Sonbol will carefully bond your permanent veneers to the teeth for a virtually invisible restoration.
Dr. Sonbol designs porcelain veneers to be both beautiful and durable. You can increase the longevity of your veneers by maintaining a healthy diet, brushing and flossing regularly, and visiting our Altamonte Springs dental office at least twice a year for professional cleanings and examination.
