If you are concerned about the aesthetics of your smile, porcelain veneers are a natural-looking, customizable treatment that can conceal cosmetic imperfections without surgery or sedation. These thin shells cover the front of your teeth and improve the appearance of chips or cracks, dental discoloration, and minor misalignment. At our office in Fort Walton Beach, FL, we also provide minimal-prep veneers, enabling us to transform your smile without modifying your natural teeth. With over 30 years of experience in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Douglas Pohl can design veneers that complement your facial features and help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
The Treatment Process
During your initial consultation, Dr. Pohl can review your concerns and your expectations for treatment. It is important to establish the ideal shape of your veneers, as well as the desired length of your veneers. If you would like to preview your results, Dr. Pohl can place temporary veneers with trial cement.
If you decide that porcelain veneers are the right treatment for you, Dr. Pohl can prepare your teeth by removing a small layer of enamel. This ensures your veneers fit comfortably over your teeth. For over 25 years, Dr. Pohl has placed IPS e.max® veneers, which are composed of high-quality ceramic that mirrors the shade and translucency of your surrounding teeth.
During treatment, we can remove a small layer of enamel to make room for your porcelain veneers.
Crafting Your Veneers
Dr. Pohl spends a lot of time coordinating with an outside lab to achieve your desired results. If there is a veneer that he is not satisfied with, he will not hesitate to send it back to the lab for adjustments to ensure that your expectations are met. Over the course of one to two weeks, skilled ceramists will create your custom restorations. In the interim, we can place temporary veneers to ensure your comfort.

Traditional vs. Minimal Prep
In addition to traditional veneers, we also offer minimal-prep veneers. These restorations are less invasive than conventional veneers, as they do not require us to remove any layers of enamel from your teeth. For the right candidates, Dr. Pohl can place LUMINEERS® in only two visits without the need for temporaries.
Porcelain veneers are one of Dr. Pohl's favorite procedures because of their versatility and their ability to produce life-changing results. If you have crowded teeth or minor gaps, porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of your smile without the need for braces. This procedure can also improve the shape and size of your teeth, as well as their vibrancy. As a result, patients suffering from significant dental discoloration can enjoy a brighter, whiter smile. Teeth whitening can also be used to treat any teeth which are not receiving veneers for more cohesive results. If the aesthetics of your smile have been holding you back, porcelain veneers can help you improve your self-confidence and your quality of life.
Porcelain Veneers Cost
Although the total cost of your treatment can vary depending on the extent of your cosmetic concerns, the materials used, and the number of veneers you receive, the average cost of a single veneer at our office is $980. If you choose six or more veneers, Dr. Pohl can apply a discount to each unit.
