Miami and Coral Gables, FL
We all have things we want to change about ourselves: bad habits, mistakes from our past, and things about our appearance. Change isn’t easy, but it’s often possible through diligence and commitment. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you might have considered cosmetic dentistry—a specialization of dental science that uses the latest techniques and tools, combined with beautiful materials, to transform smiles for the better. There are many different treatments that fall under the classification of cosmetic dentistry, but one of the most proven and popular procedures is veneers. Drs. Raul Garcia and Conchi Sanchez-Garcia would like to explain why veneers are so respected among cosmetic dentists as a great way to transform smiles.
Modern veneers represent the pinnacle of cosmetic dentistry
Did you know veneers have been used in dentistry for almost a century? Charles Pincus, a dentist in Hollywood, was the first to use veneers in 1928, for a film shoot in which some of the cast wanted their teeth to appear different on camera. Pincus supplied the actors and actresses with acrylic shells that were held in place, temporarily, with denture adhesive. Today, cosmetic dentists are working with veneers that are leaps and bounds ahead of Pincus’ early designs. Cosmetic dentists at Miami Designer Smiles offer veneers made with dental porcelain. This is a beautiful material that is used to make many of the restorations at our Miami area dental office. Our porcelain is hand-crafted at the finest dental laboratories in the United States. These veneers look almost indistinguishable from natural healthy teeth; the porcelain is durable, resistant to extrinsic stains, and has a similar light-reflecting quality to real tooth enamel.
Veneers are versatile
Do you have teeth that are stained, uneven, or discolored? Maybe you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, or have small fractures. Perhaps you have a gap between your two front teeth or some other visually prominent spot in the mouth. Veneers can fix all of these problems. Whether you want to have a veneer placed on a single tooth, or have them applied to all of your front teeth, damage and imperfections are concealed, creating a drastically different smile. The end result is teeth that look brighter with seemingly perfect structure and alignment.
Getting veneers is easier than you might think
Receiving veneers is a minimally invasive procedure. The tooth or teeth being treated are prepared by shaping the outer surface and smoothing any uneven areas of enamel, ensuring the veneer can make a flush bond. Impressions are taken and sent to our trusted dental lab, where your veneers will be fabricated by highly skilled technicians and then sent to our Miami office. Your permanent veneers should be ready about two weeks after your initial appointment.
