What Is A Dental Veneer?
Dental veneers are a custom designed cosmetic restoration. Veneers are made from ultra thin high-quality dental porcelain. The veneer is shaped like a shell and fits over the affected tooth. The shell is color matched and shaped to fit snug against the natural tooth and blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
Dental veneers can be used to fully restore a damaged, discolored or uneven smile. Dental veneers can be used to close gaps and disguise visual imperfections. Chipped, cracked, broke, or misshapen teeth can also be restored using porcelain veneers.

This office is remarkable. All personnel are courteous, kind and friendly. You are always met with each wishing you a "HELLO" and a cordial conversation.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
Your journey to a total smile makeover will begin with a personalized consultation with Dr. Perkins. During your consultation, Dr. Perkins will evaluate the health and function of your teeth and gums to ensure that dental veneers are the appropriate treatment for your cosmetic concerns. Dr. Perkins will listen to your goals, answer your questions, and help you build a treatment plan that will improve the health and appearance of your smile.
Dental veneers are designed to be a permanent dental restoration. They are designed this way because they require the removal of substantial tooth enamel. Dr. Perkins will remove about 1/2 mm of tooth material from all teeth to be treated with dental veneers. This makes room for the permanent bonding of the custom designed dental veneer.
Once the teeth are prepared, Dr. Perkins uses digital 3-D imaging to create models of the teeth. He will design precise dental veneers that will look and feel like your natural teeth. We use an in-house lab technician to ensure consistent results and patient satisfaction.
While patients wait for their final veneers to be fabricated they are commonly fit with temporary veneers. Once the final fabrications are complete patients return to our Dunnellon, FL dentist office. Dr. Perkins will apply the veneers for the patients final approval. Once approved, the veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth and polished to a beautiful natural shine.
