Porcelain Veneers - Naples, FL
Erase Imperfections with Ease
Porcelain veneers are a thin, semi-translucent covering that is permanently bonded to your teeth. While they’re not suitable for every patient, porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth.
Porcelain Veneers by Dr. Skupny
Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, ones with noticeable cracks, or those with obvious gaps, and they are ideal for masking discolored fillings in the front teeth.
Dental veneers can be used to fix:
- Diastemas (spaces between the teeth)
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly stained or washed out fillings
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth that can’t be bleached
- Crooked teeth
Dr. Jeffrey Skupny offers beautifully crafted and placed porcelain veneers to patients from the Collier County area and throughout Southwest Florida here at Island Coast Dentistry.
Advantages & Benefits of Dental Veneers
There are many benefits and advantages to having porcelain veneers placed on your front teeth:
- The procedure for placing cosmetic veneers takes only two appointments
- Porcelain veneers are the most biocompatible material you can use next to the gingiva (part of the gum tissue that immediately surrounds the teeth)
- Porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic restoration in all of dentistry
How are Porcelain Veneers Prepared and Placed?
At the first appointment, the teeth are prepared for the dental veneers and an impression is taken. This impression is then sent to a lab where each porcelain veneer is custom made to Dr. Skupny’s specifications. Beautiful temporaries (temporary dental veneers) are fabricated to simulate your new smile, so you can expect to leave the first appointment looking better than when you came in. At the second appointment, your new porcelain veneers are permanently adhered to your teeth.
What to Expect with Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can last indefinitely depending on how well you take care of them. Because porcelain veneers are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping. Even so, you must maintain regular oral hygiene at home and visit us for routine cleanings and exams. This is to ensure that your new cosmetic veneers will look as good as new.
Another important point is that oral habits that damage natural teeth, such as nail biting, opening bobby pins, and chewing on hard objects, can also damage your new dental veneers. Once porcelain veneers are applied, just treat them like natural teeth!
