Ceramic Veneers

Veneers are a long-lasting and natural-looking cosmetic dentistry treatment to improve the appearance of your teeth. A veneer is a thin, shell-like covering that fits over the front of your tooth to change its size, shape, or color. The experienced dentists at BayView Dental Arts in Naples are among the best dental veneers authorities and can help you determine whether ceramic veneers are the best solution for your smile.

What are ceramic veneers?

Both crowns and veneers in Naples are effective dental treatments for a discolored or chipped tooth. However, these two treatment options offer different solutions and are typically used to address different dental concerns. Our specialists will explain your treatment options based on your preferences and needs to determine whether a crown or veneers are best for you.

While dental crowns cover the entirety of a damaged or discolored tooth, ceramic veneers cover only the front of a tooth. Because they cover less of a tooth’s surface, veneers require less of your natural enamel to be removed before they are applied, preserving more of your tooth’s natural structure.

What are the benefits of ceramic veneers?

Dental veneers in Naples can instantly transform the look of one tooth or your entire smile, restoring your confidence and eliminating the effects of damage or disease. Veneers are designed specifically with your cosmetic preferences in mind. Whether you want to improve the color, spacing, shape, or size of your teeth, your veneers can be tailored to achieve the look you desire.

Ceramic veneers are both stain-resistant and durable, offering a long-lasting way to change the look of your smile. Your veneers will last for years and can be easily replaced when necessary.

Although teeth whitening is an effective procedure, some types of stains cannot be corrected via whitening. Teeth that resist whitening treatments can always be improved with veneers.

Our Naples ceramic veneers can correct the apparent spacing and orientation of your teeth, offering a faster and more economical alternative to braces if you have only minor cosmetic tooth misalignment.

Who is a good candidate for veneers in Naples?

Dental veneers are only suitable for changing the appearance of the teeth in the front of your mouth. If you have a damaged or chipped tooth at the back of your mouth, a crown is the best restorative solution.

Veneers are typically the treatment of choice to treat minor damage and cosmetic defects, such as discoloration, sizing, and spacing of your teeth. Crowns are often reserved for more severe or extensive tooth damage because they cover the full surface area of the tooth.

To our Patients,

As you may already be aware, Governor Ron DeSantis has issued Executive Order 20-52 permitting dental offices to resume elective dental procedures beginning the week of May 4, 2020. This order was based on guidance provided by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Florida Surgeon General. Accordingly, Bayview Dental Arts re-opened on Thursday, May 7th.

We have been diligently working on every detail to keep everyone as safe as possible. Foremost, we have tested the entire office staff (from the front desk professionals to the hygienists and dentists) for Covid-19. In addition, we will be implementing new and additional office procedures to increase your safety while at our office, such as masks for patients while in the reception area, hand sanitizer, and even disposable steering wheel covers for your car provided by our professional valet. You will also notice, as you approach our office, that we have erected a provisional “greeting” tent (pictured). Here, you will be asked a few initial screening questions and have your temperature taken before you enter the office. In addition, we have installed electronic automatic entry door openers so that you will not have to come into contact with any door handles.

Most importantly, we have affiliated with a medical laboratory named MicroGenDx. For the immediate future, we will be using this company to provide COVid-19 testing for our patients prior to their dental visits. The test is an extremely simple saliva test that can be done in the comfort of your own home. The test will be sent directly to your home and is shipped to the lab by FedEx. MicroGenDx claims the results should be returned in 24- 72 hours after they receive the sample, HOWEVER our initial experience with return times in some instances have been greater. THEREFORE, IT IS IMPERATIVE, ONCE YOU RECEIVE THE "AT HOME TEST", THAT YOU COMPLETE THE TEST AND RETURN IT ASAP. THIS SHOULD ENSURE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP YOUR PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT TIME.

The fee for the test is $99 which has to be pre-paid to the lab. You can also be reassured that this lab has been validated and added to the FDA website as a resource laboratory for CoVid-19 testing.

We feel that by requiring this test for patients, prior to their appointment, we can provide the safest possible environment. If you do have a previous COVID-19 test from your primary physician, those results will be accepted.

Can't wait to see you again!

Sincerely,
BayView Dental Arts
