Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry in which a shell or layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite is placed over the facial surfaces of the teeth to correct worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration and chips or cracks.
In addition to creating bright, white smiles with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth, veneers also protect the surface of damaged teeth and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatments. Other benefits of veneers include durability, an improved smile appearance and the need for little-to-no removal of tooth structure compared to crowns.
As seen on many celebrities today, porcelain veneers are commonly used in smile makeovers and can mask the effects of aging, years of coffee, tea and wine-drinking, tobacco-use and other color stain issues.
They are the quickest, most effective way to correct teeth that are chipped, stained, imperfectly developed, spaced, uneven, crooked or misaligned (if braces are not an option).

Veneers have always been popular, but lately, they are growing in popularity because they are constantly improving and look more natural. They are quick, simple, and painless – providing a movie-star smile in just two dental visits at times. You can experience an immediate smile transformation with porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front of your teeth. These are crafted specifically for your teeth and are made with a material that resembles your natural enamel. Veneers are used for a variety of cosmetic corrections such as:
- Teeth whitening
- Orthodontic adjustments
Veneers are one of the most popular and trusted procedures completed in cosmetic dentistry thanks to the fact that they can totally change the way that you look and feel about your smile. Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa can return the natural radiance to your teeth that they once had, or give you a totally new smile that you take part in designing based on your favorite Hollywood smile!
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are often referred to “Instant Orthodontics.” Think you need braces? Minimal tooth preparation is required, and a substantial aesthetic effect can be obtained with a veneer. Veneers are an excellent alternative to other painful procedures that can be traumatizing.
Common problems that veneers will address:
- Spaces between the teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
Veneers are applied to your teeth over a span of 2 visits to our tranquil boutique in Fort Lauderdale:
- Visit # 1. Veneer Preparation: Teeth are prepared for the procedure with the removal of 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel. This will allow room for the layer of veneer. A mold of the teeth is taken and sent to a dental laboratory for veneer creation.
- Visit #2. Veneer Bonding: Bonding is the process of permanently attaching the veneer to the tooth. Following a tooth cleaning, it is bonded with special dental cement. The adhesive is subsequently hardened with a blue curing light.
