What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to enhance the look of your teeth, while also providing strength and resilience similar to natural tooth enamel. It is often the preferred material for those looking to make slight alterations to position, shape, size, and/or color.
One of the best solutions for dramatically improving your entire smile is with porcelain dental veneers. Our patients can correct many imperfections in their smile, such as mild rotations, crowding, cracked or chipped teeth, discolorations, and other cosmetic concerns with the help of this amazing dental technique.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be used to rapidly cover chips and stains in your enamel, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly shaped or spaced. At Bright Young Smiles, your porcelain veneers will be custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth for a vibrant and natural look. During your consultation, we will listen to your objectives and concerns so she can personalize your treatment. A member of our team may also see if you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers by assessing the total health of your mouth. You should not have signs of gum disease or habitually clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
As soon as you have developed your personalized treatment program with our Lighthouse Point, FL team, they will take digital or physical impressions of your teeth. Your porcelain veneers may be created in our office while you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be crafted out of high-quality porcelain. When your porcelain veneers are ready, our team will take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This both allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your porcelain veneers are bonded, our team may make small adjustments so your veneers fit comfortably.
What Can I Expect After Getting My Porcelain Veneers?
Since getting porcelain veneers typically doesn't require anesthesia, you should be able to resume your daily activities after your appointment. You might experience some mild sensitivity to cold and hot meals and drinks for a few days, but that should subside naturally. Porcelain veneers should be cleaned just like your natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. While porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains compared to your natural teeth, you should still avoid staining drinks and food to keep your veneers bright. To prevent damaging your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, such as your fingernails or ice. Continue to schedule regular dental exams and cleanings at Bright Young Smiles so that we can track the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and overall oral health. We will tell you if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired, if necessary.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Can porcelain veneers damage your teeth?
No, porcelain veneers, when installed by an experienced practitioner like Dr. Young, are safe and effective. The mistaken belief that veneers can hurt your teeth or damage your oral health may come from people who had porcelain veneers incorrectly applied. This can occur when the doctor takes out too much tooth enamel, possibly making the teeth in question more vulnerable to damage or decay.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers typically last 10 – 15 years if they are appropriately looked after and managed well. Bright Young Smiles recommends brushing and flossing daily to maintain the long-term durability of your veneers. It's also helpful to avoid hard or chewy foods as well as staining beverages that may discolor your teeth.
What happens after the lifespan of my veneers is over?
After porcelain veneers have reached the end of their 10 – 15 year lifespan or become worn down before that time, they will need to be replaced. It is important to note that while porcelain veneers are replaceable, they are not reversible. Additionally, if your porcelain veneers were installed elsewhere and need to be replaced, feel free to contact our Lighthouse Point, FL office at your earliest convenience.
