Porcelain Veneers

Are you self-conscious of your teeth? Do you try to hide your smile in everyday conversations?

Dental veneers are a simple, effective way to cover minor imperfections that may have made you lose confidence.

Our dentist, Dr. Scott Azari, can expertly place porcelain veneers in his Port St. Lucie, FL, office to create a beautiful smile.

Am I a Good Candidate For Dental Veneers?

The best way to know for sure if you are a good candidate for veneers is to schedule a free consultation at our Port St. Lucie, FL, practice. There, our dentist will review your oral health and determine if veneers would be the right cosmetic dentistry option for you. Generally, patients should:

Have Sufficient Enamel

Before the veneer is secured to your tooth, a portion of your natural tooth's enamel must be removed. There needs to be enough remaining enamel for the veneer to stay in place. Patients with thin enamel may not qualify for this cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Not Grind Their Teeth

Lucie Dental uses IPS e.max® for our veneers. This porcelain material is incredibly durable, but it is not indestructible. Clenching or grinding your teeth can crack, chip, or wear down your porcelain veneers. We might recommend an oral appliance (similar to a mouthguard) to help protect your new restorations.

Have Minor Cosmetic Issues

Dental veneers are a great way to cover minor imperfections in your smile. However, they are not a solution for oral health concerns like tooth decay or gum disease. Minor misalignments and slight gaps in your teeth can be fixed with veneers, but patients with severe misalignment may need to seek the help of an orthodontist.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

With proper care, your porcelain veneers could last up to 15 years. Brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and visiting our Port St. Lucie, FL, office twice a year for routine cleanings is the best way to extend the lifespan of your restorations. Patients wanting veneers should already be practicing these good habits.

The Porcelain Difference Lucie Dental Uses IPS e.max Veneers

/

There are several options when it comes to the material of your dental veneers. Our practice chooses to use porcelain IPS e.max veneers because they are durable, long-lasting, stain-resistant, and natural-looking.

Conceal Imperfections With Veneers

Porcelain veneers are porcelain shells that are placed over the front surface of teeth to conceal cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Azari explains how veneers can conceal imperfections, such as stains, chips, and more, and can be paired with other treatments, such as orthodontics, for the best possible smile. Veneers are a permanent solution that last about 10 years.

A Closer Look at Veneer Placement

Including your initial consultation, the entire process of receiving veneers can be completed with just three visits to our Port St. Lucie, FL, office.
"Veneers are placed in under an hour and you can immediately enjoy your new, confident smile."
"Veneers are placed in under an hour and you can immediately enjoy your new, confident smile."

Consultation

The first step for porcelain veneers is to reach out to our Port St. Lucie, FL, office to request your free consultation. Our dentist will evaluate your oral health to ensure you are not suffering from any issues like gum disease or cavities.

Preparation

At your next visit, our dentist will prep each tooth that will receive a veneer. He does this by removing a thin layer of enamel from your natural tooth to create space for your porcelain veneers.

Impressions

Once your teeth have been prepped, our dentist will take either a digital or traditional impression of your teeth. We will use these impressions to create a wax-up model so you can better preview your results. This also allows us to make very small adjustments to refine your results.

Fabrication

You and Dr. Azari will choose which color and shape of porcelain veneer will give you the most beautiful smile. Your impressions will be sent to a lab to be fabricated. You will be given temporary veneers while your permanent restorations are being made, which usually takes between 2-3 weeks.

Placement

At your third office visit, Dr. Azari will remove your temporary veneers and clean each prepared tooth. He will then apply a bonding agent to your teeth and meticulously secure each porcelain veneer into place.

Enjoyment

Although you might experience some sensitivity in the days after your appointment, this cosmetic procedure involves no downtime. You will be smiling with confidence as soon as you step outside our office.
