Fort Lauderdale dentist creates custom veneers for patients with misshaped teeth

Dentist select suitable veeners for patient

You may be uncomfortable smiling or do not speak as much as you would like because you are embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth. Many people don’t like their misshaped teeth or are unhappy with other parts of their smile, such as gaps between their teeth, misaligned teeth, or broken or chipped teeth. Ceramic veneers are a great solution for these issues and can help you rejuvenate your smile in a short amount of time. Dr. Yolanda Cintron, a holistic dentist in Fort Lauderdale, FL, is highly experienced in helping patients achieve the smile they want with veneers for cosmetic issues.

What are veneers?

Veneers are very thin pieces of ceramic that are custom-designed for your mouth. They are fitted onto the top of your teeth and then bonded onto them with an adhesive for an instantaneously improved smile.

With veneers, you can change the appearance of the shape, size, or position of your teeth without expensive, time-consuming, and unsightly orthodontic appliances such as braces.

Veneers are not permanent and do need to be replaced over time, but they last for many years if you provide proper care for your teeth by brushing after meals, flossing every day, and seeing your dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups.

How veneers fix misshaped teeth

A common cosmetic complaint that people have about their teeth is that they seem too big or too small, or they have one or more teeth that are not the right shape. Your teeth may naturally have an imperfect shape or there may be small chips in your tooth from traumatic injuries or biting down on something that was too hard.

By placing a specially fitted veneer over the teeth, the shape and size of the teeth are instantly improved so that your smile looks natural and balanced.

Other cosmetic issues that veneers can correct

In addition to misshaped teeth, veneers can correct the following common complaints that people have about the appearance of their teeth:

  • Slightly crooked teeth or teeth that are not properly aligned
  • Teeth with gaps between them
  • Discolored teeth that are not responding to whitening treatments
  • Teeth with rough or jagged edges

Veneer procedure

Man after applying veenersTo get veneers placed on your teeth, you will typically need two visits to the office after consulting with the dentist to make sure they are the best choice for you. In the first visit, the dentist will sand down the enamel on your tooth by about half of a millimeter so that there is room for the veneers to be placed on your teeth. This is necessary so that the veneers do not take up too much extra space in your mouth or affect your bite. Then, the dentist will use a mold to take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where the veneers will be custom-made for your mouth.

After the veneers are created, which typically takes about one or two weeks, the dentist will test out the placement and fit of the veneers on your teeth and adjust as needed. Then, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and slightly roughened so that the veneers bond better to the surface of your teeth. Then, the dentist will use a dental cement and an ultraviolet light to adhere the veneers to your teeth.

Aside from good daily dental hygiene and regular dental check-ups and cleanings, no special care is needed for veneers. Your teeth may be sensitive at first and your gums may be sore, but these issues should fade over time.
