Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in recent years, with dental veneers making it possible for nearly anyone in Jacksonville, Florida to achieve a ‘Hollywood’ smile. Veneers are thin pieces of durable porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. They act to change an individual’s smile, subtly filling in gaps and changing the size, shape and color of the teeth. The result is a brighter, straighter smile that corrects and conceals unsightly imperfections.
Since today’s dental patients are more informed and involved in their oral care than ever before, many insist on conservative cosmetic treatments that both preserve the natural teeth and deliver exceptional results. Dental veneers meet those standards, leaving the natural teeth largely intact following treatment.
Veneer placement begins with a consultation, during which time patients discuss their treatment goals and actively participate in the smile design process. Once the dentist understands the patient’s objectives, the teeth are lightly buffed, removing a small amount of the enamel to make room for the veneer. Immediately after, the dentist will make an impression of the patient’s teeth, sending it off to a dental laboratory for custom veneer fabrication. Finally, the patient returns to the office to have the veneers bonded to the teeth.
