Dental veneers are custom-made thin shells that cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Dental Care of Deerfield Beach only uses the highest quality porcelain veneers because they’re stain resistant, your gum tissue tolerates the material well, and they provide you with the most natural-looking results.

Dr. Figueroa and his staff pride themselves on providing you with a beautiful smile makeover using veneers. However, it’s important to understand that once Dr. Figueroa cements the veneers onto your teeth, the treatment is irreversible.
The first step in getting veneers involves having a consultation with Dr. Figueroa so he can examine your teeth, take X-rays, and make sure veneers are right for you. After the initial consultation, Dr. Figueroa numbs the area around the treatment site to make sure you won’t feel any discomfort.
Dr. Figueroa trims off a small amount of your enamel from your tooth’s surface, creating space to apply the veneers. Afterwards, he makes a model of your tooth, which he uses to create your veneers. Since it takes a few days for your permanent veneers to be made, Dr. Figueroa places temporary veneers on your teeth.
Once your veneers are ready, you’ll come back to Dental Care of Deerfield Beach so Dr. Figueroa can adjust the color and shape to your liking prior to permanently cementing them in place.
It’s important to care for your veneers the same way you would for your natural teeth. Dr. Figueroa recommends you brush twice a day while flossing and rinsing once daily. Limit your exposure to tooth-staining food and drinks and avoid tobacco products. Lastly, refrain from nail-biting and teeth grinding as these activities can break your veneers. By following these guidelines, your veneers can have a lifespan of 15 years, if not more.
Veneers boost your self-confidence by creating a beautiful smile. To learn more about veneers, call Dental Care of Deerfield Beach today or book your appointment online.
