Dental Veneer Services In Ocala

Do you have chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, or have gaps in your smile? Do you wish you could have a more uniform, sparkling smile? Several cosmetic dentistry treatments can give you a more beautiful smile. One of them is veneers for teeth offered here at Ocala Smiles near Ocala and The Villages.

Dental Veneers: Important Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

With dental veneers, you’ll get the benefit of a brighter, smoother smile, without dealing with more invasive or complex procedures. 

Our cosmetic dentistry team provides the service, along with many other treatment options, to help our patients get the smiles they’ve always wanted. We will talk to you and figure out if dental veneers are the best option for your oral health and smile appearance needs. 

What Are Veneers For Teeth?

Porcelain veneers in Ocala, also called dental veneers, are made from porcelain or resin and are a thin, translucent shell that is bonded to the front and sometimes the side of your tooth. Though they are made from porcelain, they are durable, sturdy, and long-lasting.

Veneers are a common cosmetic dentistry procedure as they address surface issues on the teeth. While other procedures work better for damaged or missing teeth, veneers are a less invasive option for stained, discolored, or misshapen teeth. 

As with any other cosmetic dentistry procedure, our Ocala Smiles dentistry team will discuss the treatment process with you and determine if dental veneers are a good fit.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.

The Two Types of Dental Veneers

There are two types of veneers for teeth, and we offer both systems. One is traditional veneers, which require preparation, in which the dentist contours the outer layer of the tooth to prepare it for bonding the dental veneer. 

Treatment Process For Porcelain Veneers

For porcelain veneers, you’ll need to visit the dentist twice. The first visit is the consultation where the veneers are designed to match your mouth and teeth. Sometimes, anesthesia is used or temporary veneers are placed. 

During the second appointment, the veneers are placed. For porcelain veneers, the process takes a bit longer than with composite resin veneers. Our dentist will etch the tooth’s surface and then apply the porcelain material to the tooth. The etching is very light and is only to help make room for the veneers and help them fasten to the tooth longer.

What are the advantages of veneers for teeth?

When you get dental veneers at Ocala Smiles, we will ensure they look great, feel great, and work great. The veneers are fitted to match your mouth and they look similar to natural teeth. We want you to feel happy to show off your smile and for the veneers to feel comfortable in your mouth.

Some of the many benefits of veneers include the following: 

  • Each dental veneer is color-matched to your natural teeth, so they don’t stick out and look odd or like fake teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers can make your entire smile a few shades lighter if you choose to get a dental veneer on each of your front teeth that shows in your smile.
  • Porcelain veneers require no special care. Just brush and floss as usual and see your dentist regularly.
  • A dental veneer can dramatically change the look of your tooth; cracks, discoloration, misshapen, too small, or gaps between teeth can all be remedied and create an attractive, natural-looking tooth.

If these benefits sound like just what you’re looking for, reach out today to learn more about veneers. Our friendly staff will be happy to talk to you about the advantages of veneers and how the process works. 

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Veneers?

If you have a surface-level imperfection such as a light crack, chip, stubborn discoloration, or teeth gaps, veneers can work wonders for your smile!

The best way to know if you’re a good candidate for dental veneers is to call our office and request an appointment. During your visit, Dr. Evelyn will assess the shape, size, and condition of your teeth. From there, we can determine if dental veneers will fix the cosmetic issues or if another procedure makes more sense. 

If the issue with your teeth is mostly cosmetic and not health-related, veneers will likely work for you.
