Before and After Veneers Miami - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

What Miami area patients can expect before, during, and after the placement of veneers

Many patients who choose porcelain veneers to improve their smiles are often interested in speaking with the team at Miami Modern Dental to discuss the expectations before, during, and after the treatment.

First, patients must be deemed appropriate candidates for the placement of porcelain veneers. Most patients are able to have veneers placed, making them versatile and highly desirable. However, preparation of the teeth makes porcelain veneers irreversible, so it is essential that patients understand the benefits of veneers and learn how they affect their natural smile.


Once patients have decided that porcelain veneers are right for them, they can begin the process. It starts with preparation of the natural teeth. This requires removal of the enamel on the front of the teeth. This is done to allow the veneers to be bonded in place without adding extra bulk. This also results in a more natural appearance. Preparation is done by filing down a thin portion of enamel before taking impressions, which are used for fabrication of the veneers.


The molds are sent to a ceramist who fabricates the veneers based on the impressions and the specific instructions regarding color, size, and shape from the dentist. This part of the process can take approximately one to two weeks before patients return to Miami Modern Dental for the final bonding of the veneers in place.


Once veneers are bonded in place, they are ready to go! Patients do not need to give their veneers any special treatment; they brush and floss them just like they do their natural teeth. However, we do recommend that patients be careful what they chew and bite as veneers can break. We also suggest that patients with issues such as bruxism (clenching of the teeth) speak to our team about mouth guards to wear at night to protect not only their restorations but their natural teeth from wear and tear.

Drs. Pasquier at Miami Modern Dental can help patients in the community determine if porcelain veneers are appropriative for the specific changes they want to see in their smiles and if they are within their budget. New patients are invited to consult with the team regarding these and other restorations readily available in this state-of-the-art facility.
