With just one simple procedure, Dr. Feit can give any patient the kind of beautiful smile that turns heads and lingers in people’s minds for hours afterward. If you’re ready to smile with complete confidence, Dr. Feit is ready to help you do it right here in Boca Raton.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, dentistry or otherwise, and they are what give many prominent actors and singers their pristine, jaw-dropping smiles. They are extremely thin ceramic coverings that resemble flawless white enamel, and they fit directly over the teeth to improve their appearance in every way. With them, Dr. Feit can:
As with any dental procedure we provide, it will all start with a one-on-one conversation with Dr. Feit. You’ll have a chance to describe what you would like to change about your smile and what your ultimate goals are. Using this information and a thorough yet quick exam of your mouth, Dr. Feit can determine if porcelain veneers are a good fit for you, your bite, and your jaw.
If they are, the treatment will begin with him removing a tiny bit of enamel (less than the width of a contact lens) so the veneers will lay flat against your teeth and look more natural. He’ll then take an impression of your prepared teeth, and he’ll send it to a dental lab, which will actually fabricate your veneers. Before you leave this first appointment, you’ll be fitted with a temporary set so you can “test drive” your new smile.
About a week or so later, you’ll return to our office to have your temporaries removed and your permanent veneers bonded to your teeth. After Dr. Feit checks their fit and your bite one last time, your new smile will be ready for the world! With consistent brushing, flossing, and routine visits to Dr. Feit, you can look forward to your veneers lasting for decades or more.

When you visit Dr. Feit for your consultation, our team will provide you with a personalized estimate for the cost of your porcelain veneers in Boca Raton. The total price will depend on how many veneers you are going to receive, as well as other factors.

Veneers present a significant upfront cost, but they are a worthwhile investment! Not only can veneers transform your smile, but they may also give you a big confidence boost that has a positive impact on every aspect of your life.
Porcelain veneers may sound amazing, and they are — but you likely still have questions about them. Below, we’ve listed some of the most common questions we receive about veneers. If you do not find the information you were looking for, give us a call so we can personally satisfy your curiosity.
Veneers are quite durable. However, they are not invincible. To help them stand the test of time, you should:
If an accident causes damage to one of your veneers, or you have an old veneer that simply falls off, call our office right away. Dr. Feit may be able to reattach a veneer that came off. If the veneer is broken or otherwise no longer usable, he may give you a temporary veneer to protect your tooth until a dental laboratory can create a new one for you.
Most people who commit to porcelain veneers have no regrets about their decision. You can expect especially amazing results when you visit Dr. Feit, who has specialized training in prosthodontics and cosmetic dentistry. However, keep in mind that veneers are permanent. The process for placing them requires that Dr. Feit removes a sliver of enamel from the teeth. Without something to protect them, the teeth are more vulnerable to damage and may be extremely sensitive.
If you are interested in making over your smile without making a long-term commitment, you may be a candidate for Lumineers. Lumineers are a special type of porcelain veneers that require minimal tooth preparation and can be removed if you change your mind about them.
In most cases, our team uses local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort during the porcelain veneer process. You might feel some pressure on your teeth, but there should be no real pain. After the numbness wears off, your jaw and/or gums might be a bit sore, but such discomfort should subside fairly quickly.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Feit will discuss porcelain veneers in detail, and he will let you know whether he believes you are a good candidate. In general, candidates for this procedure have healthy gums and an adequate amount of tooth enamel to support the veneers. Non-smokers and those who do not grind their teeth will get the greatest longevity out of their veneers.
In just two appointments, Dr. Feit can completely transform your appearance and boost your confidence for decades to come. To learn more about porcelain veneers or schedule a consultation, contact us today.
