Dental Veneers Sunrise, FL
What are Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic material that are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth for an immediate smile transformation. Individually crafted for each patient, these cosmetic enhancements are made from an advanced material that closely resembles the appearance of natural dental enamel.
Dr. Diana Wohlstein can use veneers for an impressive number of cosmetic corrections, ranging from teeth whitening, to orthodontic reasons (such as closing gaps or diastemas disappear). Thanks to their lifelike appearance and wide array of functions, porcelain veneers rank among the most trusted and popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. Dr. Wohlstein will discuss your options during a cosmetic dental consultation. We’re here to help, contact us or call to schedule an appointment. For appointments in our Aventura Office call (305) 931-5626, or for our Sawgrass Office call (954) 846-7000.
Dental Veneer Candidates in Sunrise, FL
Patients who are considering porcelain veneers are typically looking to address multiple structural or cosmetic issues with their teeth, such as:
- Minor tooth imperfections and defects. Teeth that have small chips, worn surfaces or misshapen are often good reasons to consider veneers.
- Cover and conceal fillings that have become stained or discolored. Old fillings and previous attempts at cosmetic bondings that have become discolored can be easily corrected.
- Used to make color changes for teeth that have permanent stains. Some teeth are naturally discolored. This includes teeth that have tetracycline, fluorosis staining, and those that have darkened as a result of physical trauma or root canal treatment.
- In some cases they can be used as alternatives to orthodontic treatment. They can be used to close a space (called a “diastema”) between a person’s teeth. In cases where teeth are slightly crooked to extremely crooked, they can be used to create an instant orthodontic effect.
The only way a patient can truly determine if he or she is an ideal candidate for dental veneers is by scheduling an appointment with our skilled cosmetic dentist.
Dr. Diana Wohlstein has been providing cosmetic dentistry to patients in Sunrise, FL for many years. After evaluating health history, current dental health, and the condition of a patient’s enamel, Dr. Wohlstein can make an informed decision regarding a patient’s suitability for this treatment. We can also recommend alternative treatments for non-qualifying patients.
