Patients in Pembroke Pines, FL get stunning smiles with porcelain veneers

Have you ever looked at a celebrity’s smile and wondered how it could be so nearly perfect? Often, the secret is a cosmetic dental service called porcelain veneers. You can have the same star treatment in the care of Dr. Milton Ruiz at Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, FL.

What are dental veneers?

A veneer is an aesthetic covering. In a dental context, a veneer is a thin layer of ceramic applied to the front surface of a tooth. Dental porcelain laminates are handcrafted to exact design and shading specifications, to improve the appearance of your smile.

Dr. Ruiz may recommend veneers:

  • For discolored teeth. Veneers hide deep stains that do not respond to bleaching
  • To mask imperfections in enamel – pits, bumps, or grooves
  • To restore the appearance of chipped or broken teeth, or enamel fractures
  • To cover worn down teeth
  • For improvement in the symmetry of teeth that look too short, or have an unusual shape
  • To close teeth gaps, for the look of even spacing
  • For minor misalignment – to visually straighten teeth, without braces

Porcelain veneers: Just two appointments in Pembroke Pines, FL

Your journey to a transformed smile begins with a cosmetic consultation and examination. Adhering to the highest ethical standards, Dr. Ruiz first makes sure your mouth is in healthy condition. Existing decay or gum disease must be addressed before veneers can be considered. Then he explains treatment options and answers your questions. If, together you decide that veneers are the best choice for your needs, two visits are scheduled.

At the first appointment, teeth are prepped by removing a tiny amount of enamel so that veneers seat correctly and look natural. Impressions of your mouth are made, and you select the shade – to match existing teeth, or brighter if you are having all teeth that show when you smile treated.

Veneers are fabricated at a dental laboratory. When they are completed (in about two weeks), you see Dr. Ruiz again to have them cemented in place. With sensible oral habits, your new smile can last many years.

Dr. Ruiz also offers same day veneers to address the aesthetic concerns listed above. These direct restorations are made “chairside” and placed in the same visit. Same day veneers are made of composite resin, the strong material used for cosmetic bonding and tooth-colored fillings. While composite veneers are not quite as durable as porcelain, they can be an immediate and economical alternative that lasts a long time with good care.
