Porcelain Veneer Treatment in Tampa, FL
Before treatment, we consult with patients to determine if veneers are right for their smile. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin ceramic shells placed on the front of your teeth to improve the tooth’s color, shape, and integrity. Dr. Benedict can create the smile you desire with veneers, customizing color and shape to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns or tooth damage.
First, we prepare teeth for veneers. Removing a small portion of the enamel ensures that the veneers conform to teeth. Preparation also ensures that the veneers do not feel or look bulky. Patients must be committed to veneers because they permanently change their teeth.
Once the teeth are prepared, we will take dental impressions to create your new smile. Temporary veneers are typically placed until the final restoration is complete. Finally, we bond the veneers to the teeth once they are complete with permanent dental cement.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?
- Dental veneers fix various dental imperfections – gaps, cracks, chips, fractures, discoloration, and more.
- They are custom-designed for each patient to match the shade of their natural teeth.
- The process of installing veneers in place is minimally invasive and restores teeth quickly.
- They improve the aesthetic appeal of the smile and instill confidence in patients.
- Veneers are durable and, if taken care of, last a lifetime.
How do I care for my dental veneers?
Directly after treatment, avoid hard and crunchy foods. Avoid foods and beverages that easily stain, including coffee, tea, wine, tomatoes, and berries. When brushing and flossing, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that does not contain any abrasive materials like charcoal.
Are veneers reversible?
You cannot reverse veneer treatment because we prepare natural teeth. We cannot reshape teeth after we remove enamel for veneer treatment. We recommend veneers for patients who want to cover one or more teeth permanently.
