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.

Tooth-Colored Shells

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.

Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

We check to ensure candidacy for all procedures at our Plano practice to achieve lasting results. Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers should:

Be Unhappy with Cosmetic Flaws

Patients must be affected by aesthetic flaws affecting rather than oral health issues. Veneers cannot be used to treat fractures that affect tooth structure or severe tooth misalignment.

Have Sufficient Tooth Enamel

Patients 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 Change

Patients 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.

Many of Us Dream About a More Attractive Smile

A recent study found that 42% of people said that their teeth are the number one thing they would change about themselves

*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.

Excellent Service!

Great Dentist group and wonderful staff. They tell you the pricing up front and what will be covered under insurance and what won't. I have never had an issue in the last 5 years.

Highly recommend.

A Treatment Timeline for Placing Veneers

Getting porcelain veneers at our Plano office takes two visits roughly two weeks apart. This treatment timeline goes step by step through the process.
Thanks to porcelain veneers, our dentists can give your smile a makeover.
Thanks to porcelain veneers, our dentists can give your smile a makeover.

The Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, we'll perform an exam to assess your candidacy. We'll also discuss your concerns and cosmetic goals. We're here to answer any questions you may have.

Planning Treatment

Our highly trained cosmetic dentists will design dental veneers using advanced technology and imaging software. We want to complement your unique features and highlight your natural beauty.

Prepping the Tooth

Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned as part of the prepping process. A small amount of enamel is then shaved from the front of the tooth in order to accommodate the final veneer.

Taking Impressions

Once the tooth is prepped, an impression is taken. This impression is used by technicians at a trusted dental lab to create the custom dental veneer. This ensures fit and color match.

Placing Temporary Veneers

While waiting for the final veneers to be made, temporary veneers are placed. Patients should follow all care and diet instructions to ensure the temporary veneers remain in position.

Crafting the Veneers

Lab technicians use only durable, high-quality materials to create natural-looking permanent veneers. The goal is to make the finished veneers look and function just like your real teeth.

Placing the Final Veneers

When the final restorations are completed, the temporary veneers are removed. The final porcelain veneers are checked for fit one last time before they are carefully adhered in place.

Dental Veneers Blend in Seamlessly with Your Smile

Veneers are carefully crafted for a snug fit and to match the color of your natural teeth. The results are stunning and potentially life-changing.

Are Dental Veneers Worth the Cost? Weighing the Price against the Benefits

Our Plano dentists provide quality service at a fair price. We take time to discuss cost concerns and work with patients to find the right solution for their needs.

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.
