What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin sheaths designed to sit flush on top of teeth. After buffing down a very minimal amount of enamel to make room for them, veneers become part of your new smile and are capable of withstanding the daily wear and tear your current teeth experience.
Because dental veneers are hand-crafted out of porcelain, they look natural – porcelain is chosen because it most resembles tooth enamel. Your cosmetic dentist will assess your smile to determine the optimum shape and size of your porcelain veneers before sending the information to a high quality dental lab to be created just for you. We give you the personalized touch during every treatment you receive at Juno Beach Smiles.
What Can They Correct?

Who is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
If you’ve tried previous cosmetic treatments that weren’t as durable or didn’t quite whiten your teeth enough to meet your standards, porcelain veneers are a great step in the right direction. However, it’s important to note that you must have proper oral health before pursuing any cosmetic treatment, meaning any decay or gum disease will need to be treated first.
Furthermore, you’d choose porcelain veneers when you need a comprehensive smile solution that’s durable, strong, and provides pleasing results. You choose Juno Beach Smiles because we’ve built a reputation for crafting excellent smile makeover results.
What are the Benefits?
When you transform your smile with porcelain veneers, you’re getting:
- A quick solution to cosmetic imperfections (veneers only require two appointments to place)
- Additional stain resistance to foods (veneers are not as porous as tooth enamel)
- The ability to solve multiple imperfections simultaneously with a single treatment method
- A more attractive smile for many years to come
How Long Do They Last?
The lifespan of porcelain veneers can vary depending on how regularly the person practices proper oral care. If the veneers become damaged, either from an injury, using your teeth as a tool, or chewing foods that can damage porcelain (i.e. ice or hard candy), then they are more likely to scratch. This makes them more susceptible to staining in the long-term.
With that being said, veneers tend to last between 10 and 15 years before needing replacement. In some cases, veneers can last as long as 20 years if you’re more conscious of your oral health.
How Do I Take Care of Them?
To make your porcelain veneers last, make sure to brush them twice a day with a nonabrasive, fluoridated toothpaste for at least two minutes each session. Floss them daily to remove plaque from the edges of your teeth. Discontinue habits that may damage them, such as nail-biting or chewing on the backs of pens. If you have an unconscious teeth clenching/grinding problem, purchase a custom-made nightguard from a dentist to prevent your veneers from cracking or breaking while you sleep.
