Veneers are a possible solution for those looking for a more ideal smile. At Anderson Family Dental in Winter Park, FL, Drs. Bryant and Kathleen Anderson offer veneers as a cosmetic dentistry procedure with outstanding results! We offer both porcelain and chairside composite veneers.
We offer both porcelain and chairside composite veneers. While each can make your teeth look great, both have their own set of advantages.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of sturdy composite or porcelain. They are made to fit each tooth and carry benefits like durability, a natural look, and the fact that they don’t quickly become stained by beverages or foods.
They fit across the front of your teeth to conceal the following issues:
✓ Slightly crooked teeth
✓ Small gaps between teeth
✓ Misshapen teeth
✓ Gummy smiles
✓ Height discrepancies among teeth
Chair Side Composite Resin Veneers
Composite resin veneers are made from a filler that is the color of teeth and bring some different advantages to the table:
✓ Fewer visits to our office during the process
✓ Lower expense
✓ Easy repair if they do become damaged.
Composite Resin Veneers are an affordable cosmetic dentistry option.
Are Veneers a Good Option for You?
As with any cosmetic dentistry option, our dentists make sure veneers are a good and safe choice for you. After examining your teeth, taking x-rays as needed, and considering your oral health history, Dr. Bryant or Dr. Kathleen Anderson will then makes an informed decision. Of course, he or she will discusses all findings with you. If you’re a viable candidate for veneers, we will further discuss your options.
THE VENEER PROCESS
The dentist begins the process by preparing your teeth; removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate your veneers. He then bonds the veneers to your treated teeth and makes final adjustments.
If you and the dentist have chosen composite resin veneers, he will bond and shape the composite onto your tooth, achieving a natural shape and color. The material is then hardened, using a special light. After it is bonded to your teeth, the new surface is polished to look natural and smooth.
Taking Care of Your Dental Veneers
Veneers do not require specific care; there is no recovery process. You may even forget you have veneers after a while! You will be reminded only when friends and family compliment your beautiful smile.
However, restorations and veneers do not protect your teeth from dental health conditions like periodontal disease or tooth decay. To lower your risks for these, you will need to visit your dentist regularly for dental exams and professional teeth cleanings.
The American Dental Association has found that dental exams and teeth cleanings lower your risks for oral health conditions that can not only threaten your teeth but also your cosmetic dentistry.
You should also brush and floss your teeth at least twice daily. With proper care, your dental veneers can last for a very long time!
