For patients with an injured, chipped, or damaged tooth, porcelain veneers in Lighthouse Point offer an effective solution. Porcelain veneers work very well to hide any damage to the tooth, and they are custom crafted to match the patient’s existing teeth. Veneers are wafer-thin, custom made shells of ceramic (porcelain) material, made from long-lasting composite resin that is bonded to the patient’s teeth. Veneers are often used to:

• Correct discoloration of teeth, either due to root canal treatment, stains from certain medications, excessive fluoride or other causes.
• To repair teeth that are worn down.
• To repair teeth that are chipped or broken.
• To correct teeth that are uneven, misaligned, or irregular in shape.
• To correct gaps between teeth, closing the space between them.

The process of getting porcelain veneers in Lighthouse Point usually require three visits to our dental practice in Lighthouse Point. The first visit will be a consultation, where you will discuss with your dentist what you would like to achieve, so that it can be determined if veneers are right for you. During this visit, your dentist will also examine your teeth and discuss what the procedure entails. One or several teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process.

Next, your teeth will be prepared by trimming off a slight amount of enamel from the tooth surface being treated, approximately a ½ millimeter, which is the same amount in thickness of veneer material that will be applied back to the tooth’s surface. Before the dental veneer is permanently bonded to your tooth, your dentist will temporarily affix it to your tooth to examine the fit and color. Both fit and color can be adjusted to achieve the proper fit and appearance. Finally, special dental cement will be applied to the veneer and positioned properly on the tooth. A light beam will be applied to your teeth to activate the cement, causing it to harden rapidly. Only a follow up visit is recommended afterward to ensure that your gums have responded well to the presence of the veneers and to again check that placement is correct.

In addition to teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, Florida Smiles Dental, South Florida’s trusted dentist in Pompano Beach, also offers orthodontic treatment with Invisalign in Lighthouse Point. If you are in need of orthodontic treatment, chances are that treatment with Invisalign in Pompano Beach can help. Invisalign can treat a wide range of cases. The teeth straightening process varies from patient to patient, but the overall goal remains the same. Upon taking X-rays, impressions, and pictures of your teeth, a custom series of aligners will be made for you that you will change about every two weeks. Over time, your teeth will gradually shift into their correct position.
