Porcelain Veneers – Orange Park, FL

Transform Your Smile


When you look at your teeth in the mirror, are you distracted by their flaws? Perhaps you’ve even thought about having cosmetic dental work done, but it would require multiple different treatments that may not quite address all the problems you see. Well, there may be a better solution available for you to enhance your smile’s appearance—porcelain veneers. This tiny change can make a surprisingly huge difference and completely transform your teeth.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to alter their appearance in color, size, and shape. Porcelain veneers can easily conceal the following flaws:

How are porcelain veneers placed?

After you and one of our experienced dentists determine that porcelain veneers are right for you, he or she will remove just a little bit of your teeth’s enamel to make room for the veneer. Then, we will take impressions of your teeth and precise measurements of your mouth and place temporary veneers. We send this information to a dental lab, where your veneers will be specially crafted. When the final product is ready, you’ll return to our office and have your veneers permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. In as little as two appointments, you could have the smile of your dreams!

Veneer FAQs

Are Veneers Permanent?

Although veneers are long-lasting, they aren’t permanent. They usually last for a decade or so, although it’s possible for the lifespan to be even longer if you take really good care of them. That’s why we always encourage our patients to adopt healthy habits, like flossing consistently and brushing twice a day.

Is There Anything I Can’t Eat with Veneers?

There aren’t any foods that are completely off-limits. That said, there are some that we recommend exercising caution with, like hard pretzels, tortilla chips, and raw nuts. After all, your veneers (just like your natural teeth) can chip if you aren’t careful. It’s also a good idea to stick to vitamin-rich, nutrient-dense foods as much as possible to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?

If you’re a coffee-lover, then you’ll be happy to hear that the answer is “yes!” Perhaps even better news, you won’t have to worry about stains with veneers since they are crafted from porcelain. Of course, your natural teeth can still discolor, which is why it’s worth adopting habits like using a straw when drinking your morning or afternoon cup of coffee.

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

While some patients need 10 or more to achieve their smile goals, others only need one or two. In other words, we’ll only know how many veneers are ideal for you once you come in for a consultation! At that point, we can take a look at your smile, determine what you want to change/enhance, and provide you with a recommendation.

Is There Anyone Who Shouldn’t Get Veneers?

There are a few patients who shouldn’t get veneers, at least initially. For example, patients with more moderate or severe cases of malocclusion may need braces to achieve the straight, seamless smile they desire. Similarly, we may find a cavity or the initial stages of gum disease during your consultation, and all existing oral health problems need to be treated before we can move forward with the veneers process.

Is It Painful to Get Veneers?

If you’re concerned that the smile makeover process will be painful, then you’ll be happy to know that your mouth will be numbed for the veneer placement. Following your appointment, we will also give you some aftercare instructions to help prevent sensitivity, including avoiding really hot beverages and cold foods. If there comes a time where the discomfort isn’t tolerable, then you can take an OTC pain reliever (following the directions on the label).
