Cosmetic Concerns That Porcelain Veneers  Can Fix

Dental veneers are one cosmetic dental procedure in Sarasota, FL that can completely change the way your smile looks, and the possibilities are endless and exciting! They are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth and customized to conceal smile imperfections by creating a new surface. Veneers are versatile and can provide a new appearance to teeth that are:

  • Slightly turned or crooked
  • Cracked or chipped
  • Severely discolored
  • Ill-proportioned or oddly shaped
  • Worn by dental erosion
  • Too widely spaced

Since porcelain reflects light similarly to dental enamel, veneers look natural and blend seamlessly with your smile. They are also strong, durable, and capable of changing the shade, size, and shape of your teeth.

The Dental Veneers Process

The first and most crucial step in the process is a comprehensive examination with Dr. Michael Ryan. We need to ensure that the teeth we’re treating are free of cavities and that your gums are healthy and can support your new veneers. Once we clear up any underlying issues, you will be on your way to a smile that’s both healthy and beautiful.

Based on your conversation together, Dr. Michael Ryan, DDS, or Collin Ryan, DMD, will recommend solutions that are most appropriate for you. We understand that every patient’s ideas and goals for their smiles are different, and we pride ourselves on providing a variety of options so you can make an informed, educated decision about the best treatment for your individual needs.

The process takes about two weeks, and when they are ready, we will have you return to our office for the placement of your new veneers. Dr. Michael Ryan will check them for fit and ensure that you’re completely thrilled with the way they look before bonding them securely to your teeth. Now, you are ready to enjoy your new smile!

The Advantage of Choosing Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can be an excellent choice for enhancing your smile for a number of reasons. Besides giving you your dream smile, choosing dental veneers also offers these other advantages:

  • Since they are bonded directly to your tooth, they are durable
  • While veneers are a permanent solution, they only require the removal of a minimal amount of tooth enamel, which preserves more of your natural tooth
  • Ceramic porcelain doesn’t stain in the way a natural tooth does, so your veneers won’t ever need a tooth whitening treatment
  • You can brush and floss your veneered teeth just like you did before
  • Since veneers are durable, it will be many years before they need replacement

We would love to talk more with you about the advantages of porcelain veneers during an evaluation with Dr. Michael Ryan. Contact your cosmetic dentist in Sarasota, FL at (941) 921-2122 today to schedule your appointment.

Protect Your Veneers. Protect Your Investment

Veneers are strong and durable and can last around ten to twelve years with proper care. Of course, the longevity of your veneers depends on the health of your natural teeth. Routine dental visits and conscientious oral hygiene are critical if you want your beautiful new smile to last.

Be sure to brush and floss around your veneered teeth every day to keep them clean and healthy. Avoid using whitening toothpaste, which has abrasive ingredients that can scratch or damage the surface of your veneers.

Fitting Your New Smile into Your Budget

Since the cost of treatment with porcelain veneers varies significantly with each patient’s unique needs, Dr. Michael Ryan will discuss the price of your treatment with you during your evaluation. She takes into consideration how many veneers are needed and what other types of treatment she might use to create your new smile when determining the cost of your treatment plan.

Dr. Michael Ryan and Dr. Collin Ryan also work with companies like CareCredit, who specialize in helping patients fit the dental treatment they need easily into their budgets with convenient monthly payments. Many of the plans CareCredit offers are interest-free for qualifying patients. So you can enjoy your new smile right away and pay it off over time without depleting your bank account.
