Conceal Imperfections with Porcelain Veneers
If you feel self-conscious about minor cosmetic imperfections such as dental chips, cracks, or stains, porcelain veneers can help you achieve a bright, beautiful smile. These thin porcelain shells cover the front surface of teeth to mask dental flaws beneath. At Bal Harbour Smiles in Miami Beach, FL, Dr. Yudah Ari Benmergui uses state-of-the-art CEREC technology to design and fabricate custom veneers in a single appointment. To meet your needs, we can sculpt your veneers out of porcelain or zirconia, which are durable, realistic materials that mimic the translucency of natural teeth.
About Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are ultra-thin, porcelain shells designed to adhere to the front surface of your teeth. Long-lasting veneers can conceal a number of cosmetic imperfections and minor spatial misalignments. This technique can eliminate the appearance of:
- Stubborn stains or discoloration
- Chips or cracks
- Worn enamel
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or rotated teeth
Veneers can be used to treat one or several anterior (front) teeth. Available in many shades, veneers are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your natural enamel. As such, you can choose to make a subtle change or achieve a striking transformation.
Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a radiant smile, masking dental stains and discoloration.
Cosmetic Treatment Process
For your veneers consultation, Dr. Benmergui can perform a thorough exam to ensure your smile is healthy enough for cosmetic treatment. He can also answer your questions and review your goals to design an optimal treatment plan. If desired, we can combine porcelain veneers treatment into a custom smile makeover for dramatic results.
For your comfort, we use a 3-D imaging camera to capture detailed scans of your teeth, instead of using traditional molding putty. We can use these images to create a computerized blueprint of the treatment area. With our CEREC system, we can mill your veneers in-office from high quality e.max® ceramic or zirconia, stained and glazed to achieve the desired appearance.
Preparation and Placement
Prior to the bonding process, we must prepare your teeth to accommodate the new porcelain layer. Dr. Benmergui can remove a very small portion of enamel from the front surface of the teeth, and lightly etch the teeth to ensure optimal adhesion. We can then trim, color, and reshape the material to suit your smile, before bonding the veneer to your tooth surface. Dr. Benmergui has considerable skill and experience shaping and shading porcelain veneers, and can ensure your veneers will complement your facial structure and skin tone.
While veneers placement is not generally painful, our practice offers anesthesia as well as sedation dentistry options for patients who need help relaxing.
