Dental Veneers in Miami

Porcelain & Composite Options to Brighten Your Smile

Are you self-conscious about your smile? Are whitening products and teeth bleaching not getting your smile as white as you would like? Have you ever thought of getting rid of the gap between your front teeth? Top cosmetic dentist Dr. Julio Hernandez can help with dental veneers in Miami!

What are Dental Veneers?

Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, porcelain, and resin. A porcelain veneer is made by a dental laboratory and a resin-based composite veneer is made in the office. Dr. Hernandez teams up with one of the best dental laboratories in the country to make beautiful, natural-looking veneers. The veneer-making procedure is very labor intensive because it requires incredible attention to detail to layer several shades of porcelain and several different translucencies to create each individual tooth. The work done by a master ceramist in a dental laboratory is truly a work of art. Veneer teeth should look and feel as good as natural teeth.

How Long Do Teeth Veneers Last?

Porcelain veneers are incredibly fragile and delicate before they are bonded. Although a tooth veneer is only a thin shell bonded to the outer surface of teeth, it is remarkably strong due to the bonding properties. The bonding procedure requires several precise steps to prepare the surface of both the tooth and the porcelain veneer to allow them to adhere to each other. When these steps are carefully followed, the bond strength of the veneers is very strong. With proper care, your new dental veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come. At Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, you can walk around with the best smile in Miami!

Advantages of porcelain veneers:

  • Porcelain veneers will not stain over time
  • Veneers are highly esthetic and blend with the color of surrounding teeth
  • Tooth shape, color, and position can be improved with this one procedure

Disadvantages of porcelain veneers:

  • Higher initial cost
  • Requires two appointments
  • Tooth veneers often require tooth reduction or preparation

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Porcelain veneers can be made to improve the shape, color, or position of teeth. Therefore, veneers are prescribed for damaged, discolored, crooked, or broken teeth. After anesthetic is placed, the tooth is prepared by eliminating a small amount of surface structure. A digital impression is then taken. At Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, we use a state-of-the-art digital impression system that provides better accuracy than traditional impressions. This ensures that the veneers fit with laser-like precision. This impression is then immediately emailed to our master ceramist to begin fabrication of your custom-made porcelain veneers. Finally, temporary veneers are made that resemble the size and shape of the final veneers. This allows you, the patient, to have a preview of the final outcome before it arrives.

At a follow-up appointment, the temporary veneers are removed and the porcelain veneers are bonded to the prepared teeth. Porcelain veneers restore the natural beauty and health of teeth.

Lumineers vs. Porcelain Veneers

The difference between Lumineers and porcelain veneers is that Lumineers do not require tooth preparation. Lumineers are also porcelain veneers but they are placed on top of existing teeth to improve shape and color. This procedure is much more conservative and requires no anesthesia. However, not all patients are good candidates for Lumineers. The ideal patient is someone who has small teeth. Since little to no tooth structure is removed, the Lumineer procedure makes small teeth bigger or flat teeth bulkier.
