Do you want a stunning smile that leaves a lasting impression but struggle with cosmetic imperfections like chipped or cracked teeth?
Alafaya Family Dentistry, serving Oviedo and Orlando, FL, offers veneers to conceal minor imperfections.
Read on to discover how veneers can refine your smile and your overall appearance.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells custom-made to fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can conceal minor dental flaws like gaps, chips, and minor misalignment. Porcelain veneers can revamp your smile in a way that looks and feels natural.
Who Are Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers?
Before recommending porcelain veneers, your dentist will evaluate your gums, teeth, and bite to ensure that your smile has a healthy foundation that can support veneers.
Patients who suffer from minor aesthetic flaws but have good dental health are usually great candidates for dental veneers. Porcelain veneers provide patients with a cosmetic, rather than a restorative dentistry solution. Concerns that impact your oral health or the function of your smile may need to be addressed a different way, such as with a dental crown.

Tell Me About the Procedure
To start, your dentist will remove a fine layer of enamel from each treated tooth so the veneer sits flush with your natural teeth. Removing the enamel is permanent, and means your tooth will always require a veneer or other kind of restoration.
Next, the dentist will take an impression of your smile. Impressions are sent to our dental lab so your custom veneers can be crafted. In the meantime, your dentist will place a temporary veneer on each treated tooth.
Once your custom veneers are ready, you'll return to our dental office to have them placed. Your dentist will make any final adjustments, then bond the veneers to your teeth.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Veneers
Treating your dental veneers with care can help extend their lifespan.
To get the most out of your new smile, avoid tobacco products and staining foods and beverages. Do not open things with your teeth or engage in contact sports without a mouthguard, as these can dislodge a veneer. If you grind your teeth, wearing a bite guard at night can help prevent damage to the porcelain.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Because every patient has unique goals and needs, the price of every treatment differs. Several factors could influence the cost of upgrading your smile with porcelain veneers. For example, the more veneers you require, the more you can expect to pay. You may also want more than one cosmetic treatment, such as combining veneers with teeth whitening for a brilliant smile.
Your dentist can cover treatment costs during your initial consultation.
Because they are strictly cosmetic, veneers are not covered by insurance. We offer financing through LendingClub and CareCredit® to make veneers affordable for our patients. Our practice can help you apply for financing.
