Dramatically Brighten Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
If you are looking for the best option to address discoloration, cracks, chips, breaks, and minor orthodontic issues, porcelain veneers may be the right solution for you. Veneers are a great option to transform your smile and your entire appearance. The medical-grade ceramic used for these restorations is extremely durable, and every set is custom-made to fit your cosmetic dental goals. Dr. Gianni Franceschi can design and place unique, durable porcelain veneers for his patients at his New Port Richey, FL, dental office.
How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve My Smile?
Porcelain veneers are a comprehensive approach to address multiple cosmetic imperfections in your smile at one time. These blemishes often include:
- Uneven tooth length
- Minor tooth misalignment
- Gaps between teeth
Additionally, porcelain veneers are often paired with teeth whitening treatments or incorporated into a smile makeover, helping patients achieve an even brighter, natural-looking smile. By brightening the shade of the rest of your teeth, Dr. Franceschi can select a brighter shade of porcelain veneers as well. Be sure to ask about pairing these cosmetic procedures and the benefits they offer as part of your consultation.
Candidates for Treatment
We value oral health as a key component to overall health, and will never recommend a cosmetic treatment that would be compromised by pre-existing conditions. Any underlying oral health issues can limit the quality and longevity of your veneers. Dr. Franceschi performs full dental exams prior to recommending porcelain veneers, and can perform vital periodontal treatment or restorative procedures to create a healthy oral foundation for your smile.
Your porcelain veneers treatment will begin with a planning appointment with Dr. Franceschi. Together you can design your new smile to meet your goals. You can also select any other cosmetic procedures you may want to include with your treatment, such as teeth whitening. Our office can also provide detailed examples of the results you can expect to achieve.
Porcelain veneers are one of the fastest and most comprehensive approaches to dramatically improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Before your porcelain veneers are created, we may remove a small amount of enamel to provide a solid surface for your restorations. This step will help your veneers lay flat and blend with your smile. Dr. Franceschi offers minimal prep porcelain veneers, which can require that far less tissue be removed, if any. Once your teeth are prepared, we will take highly accurate impressions of your teeth. We send these to a trusted lab to create your restorations, a process that typically takes about a week. We can provide temporary veneers while you wait.
During a second appointment, your restorations will be carefully placed and secured, ensuring that the veneers match your bite and smile. Once attached, you can immediately begin eating and speaking confidently with your new, transformed smile.
Maintaining Your Bright Smile
Your restorations will be strong and functional, and should be cleaned regularly to ensure lasting quality. Coming back to Dr. Franceschi for your regular checkups can further protect your smile. We will thoroughly inspect areas where cavities and decay may occur, and take action to help you prevent these issues, lengthening the lifespan of your veneers.

“I've been a patient of Dr. Franceschi's for 10 years. He is a kind, caring dentist who takes the time to make sure that the patient is comfortable and at ease. I am one of those fearful patients, and I wouldn't keep coming back to his office if I wasn't pleased with the results. Dr. Franceschi does excellent work; he is a perfectionist!” Karen G.
