Achieve a Perfect Smile With Porcelain Veneers

Your smile is a powerful tool that can leave a lasting impression. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with a naturally perfect set of teeth. At Vero Beach Dental Care, our Vero Beach, FL, dentist, Dr. Morgan, offers porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are marvels of cosmetic dentistry that have gained immense popularity in recent years, helping patients achieve their dream smiles in no time.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are ultra-thin shells of porcelain custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. They’re designed to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, stained, misaligned, chipped, or have gaps. Veneers can provide a natural, long-lasting solution to a wide range of cosmetic dental issues.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

  • Stunning Smile: Porcelain veneers can completely transform your smile, giving you a Hollywood-worthy set of teeth. They’re known for their ability to create a uniform and flawless appearance, regardless of the initial dental imperfections.
  • Natural Look and Feel: Veneers are crafted to mimic the natural translucency and color of real teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • Stain Resistance: Porcelain is highly resistant to staining, which means your veneers will maintain their brightness and whiteness for years, even if you enjoy coffee, tea, or red wine.
  • Minimally Invasive: Compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, getting porcelain veneers is relatively minimally invasive. In most cases, minimal enamel reduction is required, preserving your natural teeth structure.
  •  Durable and Long-Lasting: With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or more, making them a worthwhile investment in your smile.

Who Is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are suitable for patients who:

  • Have stained or discolored teeth
  • Have minor to moderate tooth misalignment
  • Want to close small gaps between their teeth
  • Have chipped or worn teeth
  • Desire an overall improvement in the aesthetics of their smile

Candidates should also have good oral health, as any underlying dental issues can affect the results of porcelain veneers treatment.

How the Procedure Works


The journey to a brighter smile begins with a visit to Vero Beach Dental Care. During this appointment, you can discuss your goals and expectations, and Dr. Morgan will assess your candidacy for veneers.


If you’re deemed a suitable candidate, Dr. Morgan will gently remove a small amount of enamel (usually less than a millimeter) from the front surface of your teeth. This ensures the veneers fit seamlessly and naturally.


Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create custom veneers that match the size, shape, and color you desire.

Temporary Veneers

While your permanent veneers are being crafted in a dental laboratory, our Vero Beach dentist may place temporary veneers to protect your teeth.

Bonding and Final Touches

Once your custom veneers are ready, Dr. Morgan will carefully bond them to your teeth using a special dental adhesive. Your Vero Beach dentist will make final adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance.

Caring For Your Veneers

Caring for porcelain veneers is essential to ensure their longevity and maintain the beauty of your smile. Here are Dr. Morgan’s porcelain veneer care tips:

  • Maintain Regular Oral Hygiene: Continue to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristle toothbrush to avoid scratching the surface of the veneers.
  • Avoid Staining Substances: While porcelain veneers are resistant to stains, it’s still a good idea to avoid excessive consumption of highly pigmented substances like coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco.
  • Use a Mouthguard for Bruxism: If you tend to grind your teeth at night, consider using a mouthguard. Grinding can put excess pressure on your veneers and lead to damage.
  • Avoid Nail Biting or Chewing Hard Objects: These habits can put unnecessary stress on your veneers and potentially lead to chips or cracks.
  • Attend Regular Dental Check-ups: Continue with your routine dental check-ups and cleanings. Your dentist will monitor the condition of your veneers and address any concerns promptly.
  • Be Cautious with Certain Foods: While veneers are durable, it’s wise to avoid biting into exceptionally hard foods like ice or nut shells, as this can potentially damage them.
  • Address Any Issues Promptly: If you notice any changes in the appearance or feel of your veneers, or if you experience discomfort, consult Dr. Morgan right away.
