A Vote for Veneers

With the elections around the corner, people are gearing up to cast their vote on the next President of the United States. Whether you are happy with the election or not, Palm Harbor Premier Dental has something for you to smile about. We understand that most people find it hard to consider dental procedures to be “fun”.  However, porcelain veneers have amazing capabilities that make them nothing short of mind-blowing. For these reasons we cast our vote for veneers as our top cosmetic dental treatment that gives you dramatic results.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can achieve beautiful smiles without putting the patient through uncomfortable dental procedures. Dental veneers are made of porcelain that is fabricated to match your natural teeth precisely. Porcelain veneers are constructed to enhance your smile without giving away that you’ve had any dental work. The porcelain material is similar to enamel in that it filters light. It reflects some of the light while allowing the rest to pass through the veneer. This gives a partially translucent appearance to the veneer, which looks just like a natural tooth.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Porcelain veneers are thin so they fit right over your teeth and require minimal shaving of the natural teeth. This keeps your dental procedure quick and comfortable. We strive to make every dental procedure as comfortable and painless as possible. This is why you should feel genuinely excited and cast your vote for veneers by contacting Palm Harbor Premier Dental. If you are looking to straighten your teeth, whiten them, fill in gaps, or fix chipped and broken teeth, we are here to help! Call our Palm Harbor office at (813) 289 – 0560 to learn more about veneers if you are unhappy with your smile and set up your next appointment.

We can help you get the flawless smile you deserve. Stains, cracks and other common aesthetic problems can rob your smile from its brilliance. Dr. John Cannariato and his team create beautiful, bright long-lasting smiles using the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry.


The cosmetic treatment needed would depend on what issues you have with your teeth. It could be as simple as teeth whitening treatment to brighten your smile if your teeth are already in great shape. There could be some uneven spacing or chips that need to be addressed. In that case, porcelain veneers may be the right option for you. Some cases may need a little longer treatment if the teeth are misaligned and contributing to further dental health concerns. With today’s technology, we have 6 month braces. They are practically invisible and only take 6 months vs. the 2+ years from traditional orthodontic treatment.


If you have been unhappy with your smile, you are not alone. Millions of people do not have the beautiful, flawless smile of their dreams.

Certain beverages that stain your teeth that have more staining potential than others. The presence of pigmented molecules called chromogens and the acidity of the drinks both cause staining. There are also drinks that contain compounds that boost the chromogens’ ability to attach to the enamel of your teeth. These are called tannins. If a beverage contains chromogens and tannins together, the probability for staining is increased substantially.

Coffee and TeaBeverages That Stain Your Teeth - Coffee & Tea

In general, the darker the beverage, the more staining can occur such as coffee. Although coffee contains high levels of chromogens. It is low in tannins. Tea, however, is rich in both chromogens and tannins making it quite possibly the bigger stainer of the two.

Beverages That Stain Your Teeth - Red & White WineBoth Red and White Wine

Red wine is an acidic drink that contains chromogens and tannins making it more likely to cause staining. The acid in white wine can etch away at your teeth leaving them more porous and susceptible to staining.

Sodas and Sports DrinksBeverages That Stain Your Teeth - Sodas & Sports Drinks

Sodas and sports drinks are highly acidic and help promote staining by other foods. The darker sodas are also chromogen rich.

Beverages That Stain Your Teeth - JuiceJuice

Consider the dark pigment in juices such as grape and cranberry. Berries are chromogen rich and so are the  beverages containing them. Most juices are highly pigmented and cause staining on your teeth.

Things you can do to limit staining:
  • Try adding milk to your coffee or tea to lighten it up a bit.
  • Consider consuming less
  • Rinse with water after drinking
  • Drink through a straw to bypass the fronts of your teeth
  • Have herbal teas instead of black tea
Treatments for Stained Teeth
  • Take Home Bleaching – a simple and affordable way to remove teeth staining due to things we eat and drink.
  • Deep Bleaching Treatments – for people looking for the whitest smile, deep bleaching is the best-known tooth whitening solution, and it can leave your teeth significantly whiter than other teeth whitening solutions.
  • Veneers – for people with staining not due to eating and drinking but maybe due to medications or old bondings, Veneers are the best option.
