See How Our Veneers Can Vastly Improve Your Smile
Veneers at Sweet Hart Dental
Even if you take perfect care of your teeth, damage like chipping, cracks, and stains can develop. Since it takes only one damaged tooth to disrupt the look of your entire smile, these small problems can really make an impact. Discover how porcelain veneers may be the perfect way to restore your smile while hiding any visible damage.
What is a Veneer?
Porcelain veneers are thin, strong shells that bond to the front of a tooth, masking its faults and improving your aesthetics. Veneers are designed to blend in perfectly with your other teeth, creating a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
Why You Might Want Dental Veneers
Anyone who has a tooth or teeth that are negatively impacting the appearance of their smile could benefit from dental veneers. Veneers are effective for patients with teeth in the following conditions:
– Severely Stained
Veneers as a Corrective Treatment
While veneers are popular due to the beautiful appearance they create, they serve a corrective purpose as well. Patients who suffer from crooked teeth may be treated with veneers to enhance their smile. Improving crooked teeth serves a functional purpose for the patient as well, as their misaligned bite will be corrected, and the ability to eat comfortably will be restored.
Get a New Smile in as Few as Two Visits
The process for getting porcelain veneers will involve an initial visit, a waiting period while your veneers are being made, and a second visit to bond them to your teeth. While every patient’s case is different, these are the steps you can expect when getting porcelain veneers:
- We take an impression of your teeth
- The lab creates a fully-customized set of veneers
- You’ll return to have your custom veneers attached to your teeth

Frequently Asked Questions
Veneers typically last 10 years, but they’ve been known to last even longer with proper care. To improve the longevity of your veneers treatment, we recommend scheduling professional cleanings and exams twice a year at our Pembroke Pines location.
In addition to scheduling regular appointments, you’ll want to follow a regular oral hygiene routine by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals. For lasting results, you’ll also want to:
- Address teeth grinding
- Refrain from biting into hard foods such as apples
- Wear a mouthguard if you play contact sports
- Avoid using your teeth as tools
No — veneers can actually reinforce the strength of your teeth, especially weak teeth that are prone to damage. Veneers also provide a cover to protect your teeth. However, when preparing your teeth for veneers, we’ll need to shave off part of the enamel to make room and provide a surface for them to adhere to.
The process of getting veneers is simple and pain-free. Dr. Hart will be sure to numb your teeth prior to the procedure so you won’t feel a thing. She’ll also be in constant communication with you to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the treatment.
After your veneers are placed, your gums may be sore for a few days. It’s normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold beverages and foods as well. After a few days, you’ll be feeling like yourself and looking better than ever.
Veneers have been around since the 1920s and are considered a trusted treatment to fix a variety of dental issues. While most people have a great experience with veneers, there are a few things you’ll want to look out for, including:
- If food is accumulating around the edges, you’ll need to have them adjusted
- If veneers aren’t bonded properly, they may turn a grayish color from food particles getting trapped underneath the veneers
- If veneers are too large, they can cause a gum infection
While issues are rare, you’ll want to be sure to undergo the procedure with a trusted dentist such as Dr. Hart to mitigate risks and ensure the best possible outcome for your new flawless smile. If you have any problems with your new veneers, contact our office immediately by calling (954) 437-9288 and we’ll get you in to see Dr. Hart at your earliest convenience.
