What are dental veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells that are custom designed to cover the front of your teeth. The porcelain is extremely durable and able to mimic the look and color of your teeth.

To undergo treatment, you will first need to visit our Arlington office for an examination so that our cosmetic dentist can determine if your teeth are healthy enough for veneers. From there, we will remove less than one millimeter of enamel from the front of each tooth to provide room for the 1. This tooth preparation is minor and can often be performed without the need for local anesthesia.

Once teeth have been prepared, we will take molds of your mouth. These molds are sent to a lab so that they have the exact tooth measurements they need to create your perfectly fitted veneers. Once the veneers are complete, you’ll come back into our office so we can check the fit before bonding them permanently to your teeth using a special resin. The whole process for getting dental veneers takes about 3 weeks.


Who is a good candidate for dental veneers?

Someone with a strong healthy smile who wants to alter and improve the overall appearance of their smile could benefit from getting dental veneers. You may be an ideal candidate for veneers if you are looking to hide,

  • Stains and discolorations
  • Chips and cracks
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Worn or uneven teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Minor twisting, crookedness, or overlapping

When you come into our office, let us know what smile issues you have and what you wish to correct and we will help you determine whether veneers will give you the result that you’re looking for.
