It’s important to feel good about your smile. Discolorations, chips, and cracks can impact the way your smile looks and the way you feel about it. You can cover those imperfections with a dental tool that can restore your tooth to its original beauty: dental veneers. For someone who feels self-conscious about the small cosmetic defects that impact their appearance, dental veneers can change everything.

Your dentist in Fort Myers, FL, can help. At Oak Dentistry, we offer dental veneer installation for patients who want to love their appearance and smile again.


A dental veneer is a cover placed over the tooth’s front to hide cosmetic problems underneath. Dental veneer installation can create a sense of evenness and consistency when one tooth is broken, and the other teeth are not.

Dental veneers are available for a patient with multiple teeth that need to be covered to help them achieve the look they’ve always wanted for their smile.


Patients turn to dental veneers for their cosmetic dentistry goals for various reasons. Some of the benefits of dental veneers include:

  • Dental veneers can fix many problems. They can cover chips, broken teeth, gaps in the teeth, and discolorations in the tooth enamel.
  • Custom-made. Dental veneers are color-matched to the other teeth in the mouth and custom-made to fit over the tooth.
  • Stain resistant. Many dental veneers are made from porcelain, which resists staining, provided that the dental veneer is properly maintained.
  • Dental veneers are easy to maintain. They need only to be brushed twice daily, like other teeth.


Dental veneer installation is relatively easy. The process starts when the dentist makes an impression of your teeth.

This impression will be used to determine the size and shape of the dental veneer. Once the veneer is ready to be installed, your dentist will shave down a sliver of the enamel on your tooth to make room for it. Then, the dental veneer is cemented into place.


What are dental veneers?

A dental veneer is a cover that’s placed over the front of the tooth to hide imperfections like discolorations, gaps, chips, and misshapen tooth enamel. Dental veneers match the look of the other teeth in the mouth to offer consistency and beauty.

Who needs dental veneers?

You’re a good candidate for a dental veneer if you have healthy teeth and gums and one or a few teeth that don’t quite meet your expectations for your smile. If your teeth and gums are not healthy, your dentist may recommend working on improving your oral health and hygiene before installing veneers.

Do dental veneers look natural?

Dental veneers are designed to look completely natural. Once the dental veneer is installed in your mouth, no one should be able to tell it’s a veneer. Your dentist will match your veneers to the other teeth in your mouth, so the veneer will not stand out among the other teeth. In addition, the veneer is custom-made to fit in your mouth.

How are dental veneers maintained?

To maintain your dental veneer, brush your teeth twice daily with a nonabrasive toothpaste. Abrasive toothpastes can scratch your veneer, which can cause stains and discolorations over time. See your dentist twice annually for checkups. During your checkup, your dentist will inspect your veneer.

What do dental veneers look like?

Before it’s installed, a dental veneer looks like a tooth-shaped cover that’s placed over the enamel. A dental veneer that has been installed in the mouth looks just like the other teeth.

Is the dental veneer installation process painful?

Your dentist will use a local anesthetic during installation, so the process should not be painful.

What’s the difference between a dental veneer and a crown?

Unlike dental crowns, dental veneers do not offer structural support for teeth. Whereas crowns can reinforce the tooth enamel after a procedure like a root canal, dental veneers are simply a cover that can help patients achieve their smile goals.
