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.
