Dental Veneers and Dental Laminates Miami, FL
We provide dental veneers so that patients can restore damaged teeth or transform their smile into something beautiful. At Dr. Rita The Smile Designer, we often treat patients that have a variety of dental concerns. Some patients visit our Miami office because they break their teeth, while others are looking to create a Hollywood smile. Most people are candidates for the procedure as long as their tooth structure and roots are healthy and in tact. If, however, you have a cavity or gum disease, this will need to be treated before we complete the procedure.
If you want to learn more about dental veneers, we recommend that you call (305) 230-4487 to schedule an appointment. We are a provider of veneers and can let you know if they will help you to achieve the goals that you have for your smile.
What is Dental Veneer?
A veneer is a thin shell that is made out of porcelain or ceramic. The shade of the veneer, along with its shape and size, can be made to match your surrounding teeth; or, if so desired it can be made to transform your smile completely.
How is a Dental Veneer Used?
We can accomplish a variety of things using dental veneers. By placing veneers on top of the teeth, we can close gaps, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains and create a uniform-looking smile. In this way, veneers can create a smile that rivals the most famous Hollywood stars. The nice thing is that you do not have to be famous to improve your smile. You simply need to call 305-230-4487 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rita Dargham.

We also use dental veneers for restorations. When teeth become cracked, chipped or broken, a veneer can restore the tooth to its full functionality. As long as the tooth structure is intact, we can restore the appearance of a tooth while making it possible to eat and speak without feeling any discomfort.
After having taken the preliminary records necessary for finalizing the treatment plan, the patients visiting our Dr. Rita The Smile Designer offices will have an impression taken of their teeth to create the veneers in a lab. The veneers will be designed to enhance the size, shape, and color of your teeth, taking an average of two weeks to create.
In order to place dental veneers, we will first prepare your tooth by making minor adjustments to a portion of the enamel. This helps the veneer lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After preparing the tooth, we will secure a temporary veneer using removable cement. While wearing a temporary veneer, it is important to brush your teeth gently and avoid eating any foods that may push it out of place.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you will come back into our Dr. Rita The Smile Designer offices so that we can remove the temporary and ensure that the new veneer is a perfect fit. It is typically attached using a water-based solution to see how it looks. If any adjustments need to be made, it will be done at this time. Otherwise, the tooth will be cleaned, and the dental veneer will be bonded to the tooth. Patients will enjoy how the results look. They are instant, and you can start flashing your smile right away.
After the Procedure
Your teeth will be slightly uncomfortable for a few days after the preparation phase and after placing the permanent veneers. During this time, you can take medication, recommended by Dr. Rita to stay comfortable. Patients can also benefit from getting rest and using a cold compress to reduce any swelling. We recommend that patients watch what they eat for a few days and stick with foods that are soft. While there is a short recovery time when getting veneers, the procedure is entirely worth it because, in the end, you will have a beautiful smile.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
One main benefit of veneers that patients enjoy is how the veneers make their teeth look. This procedure is an excellent solution since the veneers can transform your smile into one that looks perfect and beautiful. The veneer uses your natural teeth; there is no need for surgery, and the recovery time is reduced. Since the veneers are made to match your other teeth, they will look natural, and no one will be able to tell that you had any cosmetic dentistry completed. Another benefit is that they are made out of a stain resistant material. This means that your teeth will stay whiter and brighter, even if your favorite beverage is a hot cup of coffee. We can use dental veneers to transform your smile.

As with most cosmetic procedures, there can be some discomfort associated with getting dental veneers installed. This is to be expected; however, we do our best to keep patients comfortable during the procedure so that you will not experience any pain while the veneers are being placed or your teeth are being prepared. The process can take several weeks so there will be a period where you need to be careful about what you eat and what activities you engage in. In other words, do not play football after getting temporary veneers placed onto your teeth. You should schedule the procedure for a time when you will be close to home and able to take it easy.
