Veneers are one of our most versatile cosmetic treatments. They have the ability to correct almost any dental flaw for a complete smile transformation. Made from porcelain, veneers are tooth-shaped shells that are bonded directly onto the front of your teeth. When combined with proper oral hygiene and good eating habits, veneers can last for up to ten years before needing repairs. At the dental office of Dr. Skigen, we do our best to provide you with only the highest quality dental veneers in Jacksonville, Florida.
It generally takes two appointments to our dental office to apply veneers. During your first visit, we will begin preparing your teeth through a light buffing process. This is done to ensure the veneer fits correctly onto the tooth, as well as to accommodate the veneer’s thickness. Molds of the teeth are then taken and are used by a dental laboratory to fabricate your custom veneer. We will also choose the perfect shade of porcelain for your smile; we are able to either match the porcelain to your natural tooth color or pick a shade that is lighter if we are using veneers to whiten your smile.
Once your veneers have been created and sent back to our office, our skilled dentist will check them thoroughly and temporarily place them on your teeth to guarantee everything looks and fits perfectly. When all final adjustments have been made, the veneer is permanently cemented in place. We invite you to call our dental office today to learn more about veneers and how they can benefit your smile. We hope to hear from you soon!
