Porcelain Veneers in Naples, FL
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a thin, semi-translucent laminate permanently bonded to your teeth. While they’re not suitable for every patient, porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth. Learn more
Porcelain Veneers by Dr. Jeffrey Skupny in Collier County
Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Our SWFL patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.
Dental veneers can fix problems including:
- Diastemas (spaces between teeth)
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, stained or washed out fillings
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth that can’t be bleached
- Crooked teeth
Dr. Jeffrey Skupny offers beautifully crafted and placed porcelain veneers to patients from the Collier County area and throughout Southwest Florida at Island Coast Dentistry.
Advantages and Benefits of Dental Veneers
There are many benefits and advantages to having porcelain veneers placed on your front teeth:
- The procedure of placing cosmetic veneers takes only limited appointments
- A conservative amount of tooth structure is removed during the porcelain veneer procedure
- Porcelain veneers are the most biocompatible material you can use next to the gingiva (part of the gum tissue that immediately surrounds the teeth and alveolar bone)
- A healthy “natural” look is achieved; in fact, porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic restoration in dentistry
How are Porcelain Veneers Prepared and Placed?
At the first appointment, Dr. Skupny, the teeth are prepared for the dental veneers and an impression is taken. This impression is then sent to a lab where each porcelain veneer is custom made to Dr. Skupny’s specifications. Beautiful temporaries (temporary dental veneers) are fabricated to simulate your new smile so you can expect to leave the first appointment looking better than when you came in. At the second appointment the new porcelain veneers are permanently adhered to the natural teeth.
What to Expect with Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can last indefinitely, depending on how well they are taken care of by the patient. Because porcelain veneers are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping. Even so, you must maintain regular oral hygiene at home, and visit us for routine cleanings and exams. This is to ensure that your new cosmetic veneers will look as good as new.
Another important point is that oral habits that damage natural teeth such as nail biting, opening bobby pins, and chewing on hard objects can also damage your new dental veneers. Once porcelain veneers are applied, just treat them like natural teeth. They look great and are extremely durable.
Dr. Skupny has extensive experience with placing cosmetic veneers. We invite you to come to Island Coast Dentistry in the Collier County area to learn more about dental veneers and find out if porcelain veneers are right for you.
