How Porcelain Veneers Work What Patients Should Know
There are numerous misconceptions about what porcelain veneers are and how they work. Here are the basics so you have a better idea of what the procedure involves.
Dental veneers are custom tooth-colored shells that function like a mask. The durable, stain-resistant porcelain hides aesthetic flaws from view.
Fits Right Over a Tooth
A porcelain veneer fits right over the front of a tooth. A little bit of enamel is removed in order to accommodate the thin tooth-colored shell.
Versatile Cosmetic Treatment
Given the way these porcelain shells work, they can easily be used to treat all kinds of cosmetic flaws that affect the appearance of a smile.
"My favorite dental practice ever. Everyone is friendly and great with patients. I highly recommend them and hope you will call for an appointment. I promise you will be very happy you did."

Many of Us Dream About a More Attractive Smile
*According to a OnePoll survey conducted for Bupa Dental Services
So many of us suffer from flaws that keep our teeth from looking their best. That helps explain why cosmetic dentistry continues to grow in popularity. There are so many over-the-counter products and in-office innovations to enhance the appearance of your smile.
Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Be Unhappy with Cosmetic FlawsPatients must be affected by aesthetic flaws rather than oral health issues. Veneers cannot be used to treat fractures that affect tooth structure or severe tooth misalignment.
Have Sufficient Tooth EnamelPatients must have enough healthy tooth enamel. Placing a dental veneer requires shaving off just a bit of enamel for a proper fit. Thankfully just a fraction of a millimeter of enamel must be removed.
Be Committed to Lasting ChangePatients need to be committed to lasting change to ensure the results of treatment endure. That means proper oral hygiene, a good diet, and visiting the practice for regular cleanings and checkups.

Wondering Whether Veneers Are Right for You? Preview the Results Before Committing to the Treatment
Digital Imaging Software
With our advanced imaging technology, we can scan your current smile and digitally produce an “after” photo to show how our veneers will look in your smile. We can produce a digital preview of your smile for several treatments as early as the consultation stage. Our friendly staff can print the results so you can reference the before and after photos at any time and ask your family or spouse for their opinions.
While our imaging software is great for the early decision-making stages, we typically use wax-up models for patients who are already interested in receiving veneers. A wax-up is a precise wax model of your smile that gives you the chance to preview your results up close and at any angle. We can show you the wax-up before we start crafting your veneers so you can give feedback and have more control over your results.
A Treatment Timeline for Placing Veneers
Thanks to porcelain veneers, our dentists can give your smile a makeover.
Does Veneer Placement Hurt?
No. The area is numbed before your dentist alters the tooth to ensure you are completely comfortable during treatment. The dentist will only remove enough enamel to allow the veneer to blend with your natural teeth. If at any time you feel discomfort, let your dentist know.
Is There a Recovery Period for Veneers?
For the most part, there is no recovery time associated with veneers since they are so minimally invasive. You can immediately return to your daily activities after leaving our office. However, you should wait to eat until the numbness from the local anesthesia wears off so you don’t accidentally bite your cheek or tongue while chewing. You can eat normally once the anesthetic loses effect.

How to Take Care of Temporary Veneers
Temporary veneers and the cement holding them in place will not be as strong as permanent veneers since the temporaries need to come off when your custom veneers are ready. As a result, you will want to avoid certain habits and foods that can damage your temporary veneers or increase the risk of them coming off prematurely.
To help make your time with temporary veneers as stress-free as possible, follow our dentist’s instructions including:
- Practicing good hygiene such as brushing and flossing twice a day
- Flossing carefully so you don’t accidentally remove the dental cement
- Avoiding hard, crunchy, sticky, or sharp foods
Are Dental Veneers Worth the Cost? Weighing the Price against the Benefits
Compared to Other Treatments
Dental bonding and teeth whitening are both more affordable than dental veneers. However, bonding materials are not as durable, and teeth whitening isn't always effective on deep stains. The added cost of care is about the quality and duration of the final results.
Payment and Financing Options
If cost is a concern, our dentists will work with you to make the procedure more affordable. We accept various payment methods and offer financing through LendingClub and CareCredit. We want every patient to experience the benefits of cosmetic dentistry.
Transform Your Smile
Veneers are a versatile treatment that can be combined with other cosmetic dentistry procedures and restorative options to completely transform your smile. From Invisalign® to full mouth reconstruction, our Plano dentistry practice offers a variety of cosmetic and restorative treatments to give you the smile you have always dreamed about.
