Very few people are blessed with perfect teeth.

Partnering with the top dental labs in the country, Dr. Nancy Rotroff and Dr.Gerard Wasselle ensure your veneers are expertly crafted using top quality materials to create a natural-looking, head-turning smile.
What Is The Best Way To Fix Broken Teeth?
Even though your teeth are very strong, they can -and do- sometimes break. Eating hard foods like candy or chewing ice, trauma to the mouth, or using your teeth as tools can cause your tooth to break. Your dentist in Fort Lauderdale has a number of solutions for your broken or chipped tooth. Your dentist will perform a thorough dental exam including xrays to determine which option will best correct your dental issue.
Composite bonding is a very popular treatment options because it is quick, painless, and relatively inexpensive. This procedure is used to repair chipped or broken teeth and close gaps (diastema) between teeth. Composite dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure often done in a single visit without any dental shots. While both veneers and bonding are custom matched to your surrounding teeth, bonding is a less durable option and is prone to staining.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent treatment option to restore teeth, particularly front teeth, that are chipped or broken but not to the extent that they need a crown. Porcelain veneers are a durable restoration which should last for years with proper care. Veneers are resistant to stain from foods like wine, coffee and smoking. For teeth that have more extensive damage, a dental crown may be necessary to restore the function and aesthetics of your tooth.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?
Every patient's needs are unique and every patient's treatment plan will be different. High quality dental veneers cost around $2000 per tooth. Beware bargain shopping for your dental veneers; you may save money in the short-term but in the long run you may not be happy with your result. Select the best cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale who uses high quality materials and the best dental labs to provide a restoration that will not only create a stunning, natural looking smile but also one that will last for years to come.
Are All Veneers The Same?
No. Some providers offer no- prep veneers such as Lumineers. No-prep veneers tend to be a low cost veneer option compared to custom-made porcelain veneers made in a dental lab, but are not custom-made for your smile and do not have the same durability and longevity. While traditional veneers require training and skill to produce a natural-looking result, Lumineers don’t require much preparation enabling less skilled dentists to offer Lumineers in their practice. Fixing poorly-applied Lumineers for patients is a common treatment for experienced cosmetic dentists.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
With proper daily care, brushing and flossing, and regular dental cleanings and check-ups with your dentist in Fort Lauderdale, your dental veneers should last 10-15 years. Good oral hygiene, not using your teeth as tools, not chewing ice and using an occlusal night guard if you grind your teeth can add years to your dental restoration.
What Is The Veneers Procedure?
To prepare your tooth for your custom-made porcelain veneer, Dr. Nancy Rotroff or Dr. Gerard Wasselle will trim a tiny amount of enamel off your tooth to create a space for the veneer. An impression of your tooth is created using putty mould. Once this mould hardens, the dental lab uses it to create your custom veneer. You will be given a temporary veneer until your permanent veneer is ready. At your next visit, your cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale will cement your permanent veneers in place using a curing light allowing you to smile with confidence.
