Veneers Q & A

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at Tru Plano Dental bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers hide defects such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. In addition, they help reinforce delicate teeth.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. A skilled dental team member describes your choices and suggests the best type of veneers for you.

What is the process for getting veneers?

After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you come back for a second appointment. At this appointment, one of the professional cosmetic dental experts takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepped, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place, and you have a beautiful and improved smile.

Why should I get veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Veneers also offer these advantages:

  • Stain resistance
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
