What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed on the front of teeth to cover dental imperfections and improve the overall appearance of your smile. They’re one of the most utilized cosmetic dental treatments for teeth that are chipped, gapped, stained, or worn down. A veneer is bonded to your existing tooth to change and enhance the way it looks. This also adds an additional layer of protection for your natural tooth. We typically only recommend veneers for front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile. One veneer can be used to fix a single flaw, or multiple veneers can be used for a complete smile makeover.

Our dental veneers are made out of premium-grade material to provide patients with the longest-lasting and most natural-looking results. Each veneer is hand-crafted by our experienced cosmetic dentists to change the shape, size, color or even length of your teeth. Our dentists use their passion for artistry and years of expertise to produce truly realistic veneers that look just like natural teeth. Our goal is to provide you with a flawless new smile without anyone being able to tell you’ve had dental work done. Give us a call today to get started!

Problems Dental Veneers Can Fix

Routinely, dental veneers are used to fix discolored teeth as a result of excessive fluoride, stains from drugs including tetracycline, root canal treatment, or even resin filling that have discolored teeth over time. They can also fix misaligned, uneven, crooked, worn down, broken or chipped teeth and also teeth that have conspicuous gaps between them. Porcelain veneers are an effective and fast way of fixing your teeth irregularities giving you that perfect smile.

Porcelain Veneers vs. Dental Crowns

Most dentists consider porcelain veneers in their application because they do not fully encompass the entire tooth like dental crowns. Nonetheless, dental veneers have the ability to fix chemically stained teeth, broken teeth, chipped teeth as well as crooked teeth so effectively; so much so that they do not react to any additional whitening treatment. Additionally, porcelain veneers are made of highly resilient porcelain which means that they not only respond to colorants and other tooth whitening chemicals as naturally as the usual teeth do, but they can also be tinted to match the teeth around them with exact precision.
Composite resin fillings and tooth crowns may continually look flat and resist staining, but the advantageous thing about porcelain veneers is that they respond just like your natural teeth’s enamel thus retaining a uniform look to your teeth for several years. If you’re interested in dental veneers and porcelain veneers in Austin, please visit us at Belterra Dental for dentistry with a touch of professionalism.

Dental Veneers Procedure

Dental veneers in Austin will require at least three trips to the dentist: the first initial consultation, an appointment for making the veneers, and a final appointment for the applying the custom veneers. The procedure can be done on a single tooth or several teeth simultaneously. During the initial consultation, you will be required to participate actively and explain to your dentist the exact result that you would like to achieve. Here, the dentist or oral surgeon examines your teeth ensuring that the dental veneers will indeed be a viable and appropriate option for you. There will be further discussion on what the procedure entails. This includes benefits and limitations.
During the next appointment, the Austin dentist prepares your teeth for the procedure by removing about half an Ml of enamel from the tooth’s surface. This is an amount that is almost equal to the thickness of veneer that is to be added to the tooth surface. You and your dentist will then decide whether it’s necessary to use local anesthetic to numb the area before he/she trims off the enamel. The dentist makes an impression of your tooth and sends it to a dental laboratory to construct your custom veneer(s), which takes two to four weeks.
The last step is bonding. This is where the dentist places the veneer on your tooth temporarily to examine its color and fit, repeatedly trimming it as need be to achieve the perfect fit. Upon achieving the desired fit and color, the dentist polishes, cleans and etches it to roughen it up for strong bonding. They will apply special cement on the veneer, place it on your tooth, and lastly, apply a special beam of light to it (a process which activates the chemicals found in the cement leading to it hardening and curing very fast). Any excess cement is removed, and your bite is evaluated. The dentist will then make final adjustments as necessary

Dental Veneers Cost

Depending on the part of the country you come from and also the extent of your procedure, dental veneers range in price from $1,000 dollars to $2,000 dollars per tooth. It is also good to take note of the fact that veneers are not generally covered by dental insurance, but you can confirm this from your specific insurance provider.

How It Works: The Dental Veneers Process

The dental veneers process is relatively simple and only requires a few visits to our office in Austin. The cosmetic procedure is less invasive than other options such as dental crowns, as veneers only cover a tooth’s surface rather than the entire tooth. The veneer process can be broken down into the following steps:

Step 1: Initial Consultation & Custom Treatment Plan

Schedule an initial consultation with the experienced cosmetic dentists at Belterra Dental. Our dentists have placed hundreds of veneers for patients in Austin and Dripping Springs, TX. During your initial consultation, we’ll take the time to listen to your concerns and what you would like to fix. We’ll also perform a thorough evaluation of your dental health to determine if porcelain veneers are a good option for you. This typically includes a comprehensive dental exam, a review of your medical history, and dental X-rays if necessary.

Once we determine you’re a good fit for porcelain veneers in Austin, we’ll start creating a treatment plan that is customized to your specific wants and needs. Since the dental veneers procedure is considered irreversible, it’s important to us that our patients take on an active role throughout the process. If we find that you aren’t a good candidate, we’ll offer our expert advice and guidance about the best alternative options.

Step 2: Prepping Teeth & Veneer Creation

Once you have approved of your personalized treatment plan, we’ll schedule your next appointment to prepare your teeth and create impressions to have your custom porcelain veneers made. Depending on your unique case, minimal preparations may be required to prepare your existing teeth for the veneers. This process involves removing a very thin layer of enamel from the front of the teeth where veneers will be placed. This ensures that your new porcelain veneers aren’t too thick or bulky, and they fit comfortably and naturally in your mouth.

We’ll then take impressions of your teeth and send them into our lab to create your new dental veneers. It’ll take about two to four weeks for your new veneers to be ready. In the meantime, we’ll provide temporary veneers to protect any teeth that had prep work done.

Step 3: Porcelain Veneers Procedure

A final appointment will be required for the veneer placement procedure. We’ll remove your temporary veneers and check that your new porcelain veneers fit properly. We’ll make sure they’re the right shape, size, and appropriate color for your teeth. Our dentist will make any modifications necessary to ensure you absolutely love the look and feel of your new smile.

When you and your dentist are both happy with the adjustments, we’ll bond your new dental veneers to your teeth. Your existing teeth will first be cleaned, polished, and etched to allow for the strongest bonding process. Then the porcelain veneers will be placed using a bonding cement and special curing light.

Regular exams help spot trouble early to prevent bigger and more costly treatments later.

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. Your dentist should take as few as possible. Sometimes dentists may recommend X-rays to diagnose a special problem. Advancements in technology means today’s digital X-rays release much less radiation and are safer than in the past.

Stores sell many whitening products, and you can get take-home gels and trays from your dentist, but neither is as strong as procedures done in a dental office

If you want to try an over-the-counter whitener, look for one with an ADA seal. Check with your dentist for advice before you buy, especially if you have dental work or dark stains. And don’t keep using them, or you could damage your teeth.

Caps and crowns cover problem teeth by surrounding them in a material that looks like a real tooth. They use the root and inside of the tooth as a base to build on, then attach with special cement.

Children, teens, and adults should all see the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your doctor will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular checkups.
