Getting Veneers: Fort Lauderdale Dentists Outline The Process

A healthy, beautiful smile is something that most people desire almost as much as they would want to have flawless facial skin or silky, flowing hair. A smile is one of the things that other people will notice upon meeting you, so naturally, you will want to make a good impression by confidently flashing healthy, pearly whites.

Of course, not everyone will have teeth as gorgeously white and properly aligned as models in toothpaste commercials do. Some people will have teeth that are discolored (from years of consuming coffee, cigarettes, or certain drugs), worn down, chipped, broken, irregularly shaped, misaligned, and have gaps. But these teeth conditions can be fixed using dental veneers — Fort Lauderdale dentists have years of experience performing this relatively routine procedure on the proper candidates.

Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials that are meant to cover the front surface of teeth and improve their appearance. There are two kinds of materials that can be used to create veneers: porcelain and resin composite materials. The latter is thinner, but porcelain veneers are better able to resist stains and mimic natural light reflection, thus creating a more natural appearance.

The process of getting dental veneers is described below:

1. A dentist will first need to determine whether getting veneers is the right diagnosis for your specific condition. You need to actively explain the results you want to see and volunteer important information such as whether you clench or grind teeth while sleeping, or whether you have unhealthy and weakened teeth (which are signs that veneers are not advisable for you).

2. To prepare your teeth for the procedure, about 1/2 millimeter of enamel will be removed from your tooth by the dentist; this will be the same approximate thickness of the veneer that will be applied. An impression of your teeth will then be made; this model will be sent to a lab where your veneers will be constructed. This can take a week or two.

3. Before binding the veneer to the teeth, the dentist will repeatedly place it on the tooth then remove it to see if the fit and color is just right; it will need to be trimmed to achieve the perfect fit. When the veneer is the right size, your teeth will then be cleaned, polished and etched to allow for more effective bonding. A special kind of cement will be applied to the veneer, and then it will be placed on your teeth. A special light beam will facilitate the quick hardening of the cement. Afterwards, final trimming of any excess cement and last adjustments are made.

After the procedure, the dentist may ask you to come in for follow-up visits so that he can observe how your teeth and gums are responding to the 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.
