What are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is actually a very thin ceramic covering that is placed over the front of a tooth. It’s designed to resemble flawless white enamel, and when applied to multiple teeth, they can completely change the look of the smile for the better. The procedure involves removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth to ensure the veneers lay flat, taking an impression, and then sending it to a lab for the veneers to be made. Then, at a follow-up appointment, Dr. Perez bonds the veneers to the teeth using dental cement.

Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile for any reason, porcelain veneers may be the right treatment for you. They can be used to correct:

However, it should be noted that veneers cannot be used to treat problems such as cavities or gum disease. If a patient has one of these issues, it will need to be addressed before they can get veneers.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

The biggest benefit of porcelain veneers is boosted confidence. Confidence is absolutely essential to any goal you hope to accomplish, whether it’s personal or professional. They also offer a way to make slightly misaligned teeth appear straighter without having to undergo braces, which is why many dentists call them “instant orthodontics.” Veneers are also extremely strong and can be used to strengthen and reinforce the teeth so a patient is able to bite and eat with more security.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What's Right For Me?

It’s common for patients considering veneers to fixate on the upfront cost. However, it’s important to remember that this cosmetic dental treatment can last for upwards of 30 years with proper care and can fix multiple imperfections at once. As a result, they may be the best choice for your smile and wallet, even when compared to other popular smile-enhancing services. With this in mind, here are a few things you should consider:

  • Braces – In addition to being able to address mild to severe cases of malocclusion, the results of your orthodontic treatment have the potential to last a lifetime. Of course, they won’t address as many imperfections as veneers, and the treatment plans are considerably longer. Both of these are important to consider when deciding which service is best for you.
  • Teeth Whitening – Although the cost can vary, teeth whitening is typically more mid-range in terms of cost. The results can last for several years with proper care, and professional treatments can lighten your teeth by eight shades or more! Again, the shape and position of your teeth will remain the same. So, if you want to address those as well, you will need to factor in the cost of additional treatments.
  • Direct Bonding – Dental bonding does fix multiple imperfections at once. However, unlike veneers, it’s really more ideal for minor flaws, like small chips and spacing issues. Plus, the results don’t last anywhere near as long as veneers.
  • Veneers – With the higher upfront cost of veneers comes multiple benefits, including the ability to address several dental flaws, a 20+ year lifespan, and a treatment process that can be completed in three visits or less.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available today, which explains why they have been exploding in popularity in recent years. However, it’s important that you’re armed with as much knowledge as possible before you go through with the procedure. That’s why we’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions about veneers in Tyler down below.

Are Porcelain Veneers Permanent?

In order for the veneers to sit flush against your teeth, it’s necessary for us to shave off a tiny sliver of enamel. Because enamel does not grow back once it has been removed, this makes veneers a permanent treatment. Your affected teeth will always need some sort of protection going forward, whether that’s with veneers or another restoration like dental crowns. For this reason, it’s important that you’re absolutely sure that veneers are the treatment you really want.

Does Getting Veneers Hurt?

It shouldn’t. Before preparing your teeth and placing the veneers, we’ll make sure your teeth are numb by administering a local anesthetic. This ensures you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. However, your mouth might be a little sore afterward, but this can be managed by taking an over-the-counter pain medication as needed.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Typically, veneers last around 10 years before they have to be replaced, but you can prolong their lifespan even further by taking excellent care of them. Fortunately, this doesn’t involve anything beyond what you would extend to your natural pearly whites. Brush and floss every day as you would normally. Attend dental checkups and cleanings with us at least twice a year. Protect your teeth by wearing a mouthguard during sporting events or a nightguard if you suffer from nocturnal teeth grinding. Lastly, avoid using your teeth as tools to open packaging, hold grocery bags, etc.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

There is no fixed cost of getting veneers because every patient’s case is different. Your price will vary based on factors such as how many veneers you’re receiving and where in the mouth they’re being placed. It also depends on whether your insurance decides to cover the cost. In most cases, they don’t since veneers are often considered a purely cosmetic treatment. However, our team is more than happy to take a look at your policy and determine whether you qualify for coverage for veneers.

Is There Anything I Can’t Eat Once I Have Veneers?

We recommend sticking to a soft food diet for a few days after getting your veneers placed, as your teeth are still adjusting and may be sore. After that, you should be able to eat virtually anything you want. Just like with your natural teeth, however, there are some foods you should limit or avoid since they can chip or break your veneers in the same way they would damage enamel. These foods include:
