Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. Let’s make a good impression! Dr. Burks offers quality cosmetic dental treatment throughout the Winter Springs area. One of the many services we provide to improve your smile is porcelain veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells made from tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front, visible part of the teeth. Veneers are one of our cosmetic dental services for correcting chipped, discolored, or stained teeth. Typically, veneers are either made from porcelain or composite resin material. Dr. Burks, your Winter Springs cosmetic dentist, is happy to offer porcelain veneers and the many benefits that accompany them.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a lasting option for natural-looking, beautiful smiles. While there are other veneer options, porcelain veneers offer many benefits that simply cannot be matched by composite resin veneers.

  • Stronger, more wear-resistant
  • Natural looking surface
  • Long-lasting
  • Resists staining
  • Requires less enamel removal than for a cap or crown

Veneer Placement Process

If you and your cosmetic dentist decide that porcelain veneers are right for you, the process will take place over a few visits.

  1. Dr. Burks will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth in order to make room for the most natural placement of the veneers.
  2. He will then take a mold or impression of the tooth
  3. You will work together to determine the best shade for a natural, beautiful smile.
  4. Dr. Burks sends the impressions to a dental lab, where your customized porcelain veneers are created.
  5. At your next dental appointment, he will place the veneers, makes any minor adjustments, and bonds them to your teeth for a lasting smile.

Veneer Maintenance

One of the many benefits of veneers is their similarity to your natural teeth. This comparison extends to the care your veneers require. Veneers, like your natural teeth, require a consistent and healthy oral hygiene routine. This consists of daily brushing and flossing. Additionally, you can protect your veneers by avoiding biting into very hard objects and wearing a mouthguard if you clench or grind your teeth at night. Speak with your Winter Springs cosmetic dentist to learn more about how to prolong the life of your porcelain veneers.
