Frequently Asked Questions about Porcelain Veneers

If you’re facing specific dental issues and are in need of a quick and efficient fix, then porcelain veneers might just be the answer to your dental problems. Read our frequently asked question on porcelain dental veneers below, then feel free to contact Dr. Jonathan Cook’s clinic, at JJ Dental, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Not only will our team be happy to assist you with providing all the information you require, but we can also schedule an appointment for porcelain veneers, should you decide they are the solution for you. Our porcelain dental veneers look great, feel natural, and will restore the beauty of your smile for years and years.

Porcelain dental veneers: what are they?

Porcelain veneers are light shells made out of a ceramic material, which attach to your natural teeth. They serve any number of purposes, from rendering your smile symmetrical again, to adding length to teeth worn out by the passage of time, to closing gaps between your natural teeth.

How are porcelain veneers different from dental crowns?

Dental crowns are affixed onto a metal pivot that is inserted into your gum. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are attached directly onto your teeth. They are a mask meant to restore the natural look of your teeth and are only used to cover a specific segment of the affected tooth.

How natural are porcelain veneers?

It’s safe to say that porcelain dental veneers are the most natural looking dental solution for worn or otherwise damaged teeth. For one thing, they are customized to resemble your original teeth as closely as possible. Then, your comfort is our priority, so we only remove a slight portion of your affected tooth and try to salvage as much as we can from it. Our team will ensure comfortable usage of your porcelain veneers by affixing them firmly into place – they will be fully functional. In terms of aesthetics, porcelain veneers are colorized, as to have them naturally blend in with the rest of your smile.

How much does the porcelain veneer procedure hurt?

Not at all! At most, you will feel a slight tenderness in the area of the damaged tooth, as it is prepared for the installation of the porcelain dental veneers. Dr. Jonathan Cook DMD is highly experienced in putting in porcelain veneers – appointments at his Fort Lauderdale clinic are designed with the comfort and peace of mind of our clients in mind. Should you require the use of anesthetic during the procedure, a local solution can be applied, or, alternatively, you can opt for other sedation techniques commonly used in dental interventions.

How often will I have to have my porcelain veneers replaced?

The durability of today’s porcelain dental veneers ensures years, and even entire decades of safe, hassle-free, comfortable usage. You can be sure that they will not become discolored in time. Many porcelain veneers last the wearer throughout their whole life.

How do I maintain my porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers don’t pose any specific maintenance issues: simply brush your teeth regularly, make sure you floss, and generally just go on observing your regular oral hygiene habits.

How do I choose a good dentist for a porcelain veneer procedure?

First of all, check out your dentist’s recommendations and expertise in matters of cosmetic dentistry. The best cosmetic dentists are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Jonathan Cook has been a member of the Academy for several years now and has many years of experience with performing this procedure in his track record. Feel free to ask him and his team for more information about porcelain veneers.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for my smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.


We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
