Dr Wilkhu and his assistant Sabrina couldn’t have treated me any better. They did their best to make sure I was satisfied with the work I had done. I’ve always been afraid of the dentist, this time though I was comfortable and not nervous at all. I love my new smile....I’d highly recommend these folks.

Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

While versatile, veneers aren't for everyone. Here are some basic criteria that must be met to get veneers. Dr. Wilkhu, Dr. Cork, or Dr. Schmid will perform a full exam to assess your candidacy during your visit.

Issues with the Front Teeth

Porcelain veneers are designed to be bonded to the front teeth, which makes them ideal for the areas that show when you smile. If you are unhappy with flaws in your back teeth, we might recommend dental bonding.

Good Overall Dental Health

Patients interested in veneers should be in good dental health. They should only be suffering from cosmetic flaws of the teeth. Any structural or gum problems will require restorative dentistry.

Sufficient Tooth Enamel

A small amount of enamel (less than one millimeter) needs to be removed to place a veneer. Patients should have enough healthy enamel so that getting a veneer won't compromise a tooth's strength.

Committed to Long-Term Care

To make sure your results last 15 years or longer, patients must commit to long-term aftercare. This includes avoiding tobacco products, practicing good oral hygiene, and ending bad habits that harm your teeth and porcelain.

Considerations and Alternatives

It is important to remember that veneers permanently alter your natural tooth structure and will need periodic replacement throughout your lifetime. If you are unsure about that commitment, ask our dentists about alternative treatments such as dental bonding. Bonding may not look as realistic or last as long as porcelain veneers, but it is reversible and will not alter your natural teeth.

Assessing Patients' Candidacy

During your initial consultation, our dentists perform a full exam using digital x-rays and 3D CT scanners. We'll also discuss your treatment goals and the benefits of the procedure.

Prepping the Treated Teeth

A small amount of enamel is carefully removed from the front of the tooth or teeth to ensure a proper fit. Mild nitrous oxide sedation can be used to help patients relax during the procedure.

Taking Impressions

Next, a digital impression is taken of each prepped tooth. The high-quality impression is sent to a dental lab for the veneers to be custom fabricated.

Receiving Temporary Veneers

Temporary veneers are placed while waiting for the final veneers to be completed at the lab. We'll provide instructions for cleaning and caring for these temporary appliances.

Crafting the Veneers

Skilled lab technicians fashion custom veneers for a comfortable fit and natural appearance. The color of your natural teeth, which can be whitened beforehand, is taken into account during this process for optimal results.

Experiencing Your Final Results

When patients return to our practice, the temporary veneers are removed. The permanent restorations are checked for fit and adjusted if necessary before they are secured in place.

See Real Smile Makeovers

While veneers are often placed alone, these restorations can also play an important role in a comprehensive smile makeover. Take a look at the transformation our veneers and other treatments achieved for this patient of our Merritt Island practice:
