Dental Veneers in Tampa, FL
Do you always find yourself shying away from showing your smile? Are you afraid to smile in pictures? Do you dislike the fact that your teeth are not as perfect as you think they should be?
Many people struggle with some aspects of their teeth. It’s normal to feel unenthusiastic about your imperfect smile. The good news is that you can change your smile with dental veneers.

We promise you that you’ll go home with a spring in your step and a bigger and brighter smile after getting dental veneers from our dental office.
When Should You Get Dental Veneers?
New Tampa Smiles offers dental veneer treatment for a variety of dental problems. Reach out to us if you’d like to receive treatment for any of the following:
- Discolored teeth.
- Teeth that are showing significant wear and tear as a result of grinding or bruxism.
- Broken or chipped teeth.
- You have misaligned, misshapen or uneven teeth.
- You have diastemata or gaps between your teeth.
During treatment, our dentist will take molds or impressions of your teeth. These manual or digital impressions are sent to the dental lab to enable the creation of custom porcelain or composite resin veneers. The custom porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth with dental cement.
Typically, you’ll need to come to our dental offices in Tampa, FL two to three times. The first visit will involve diagnosis and treatment planning, while subsequent visits will focus on bonding the veneers to your teeth.
Further follow-up sessions will be scheduled to allow our dentist to check whether you’re healing and progressing as required.
Caring for Your Teeth After Veneer Treatment
Veneers don’t require an extended healing period. You should be able to chew and eat once any sensitivity wears off.
With proper care, veneers can last as many as 15 years. Proper care entails practicing proper dental hygiene as well as steering clear of harmful habits that can compromise the durability of your dental veneers.
Keep the following in mind after veneer treatment:
- Avoid chewing on hard objects, such as nails, as this could cause your veneers to crack or chip.
- Don’t use your teeth to open bottles.
- Get an oral splint or retainer to protect your teeth, if you struggle with bruxism or tooth grinding.
- Use a mouth guard when engaging in sporting activities.
- If you must chew hard foods such as chocolate bars, use your back teeth.
