What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded directly to the front of your teeth. These durable restorations are designed to correct any number of imperfections with your overall smile, whether they were caused by staining, injury, trauma, or decay. Whether you’re covering a single tooth or an entire arch, our porcelain veneers can renew your confidence and give you something to smile about.

Millions of people get porcelain veneers every year because they’re a convenient, high-quality solution. Veneers offer many benefits and installation can be completed in just two appointments.

The Benefits or Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can offer patients several cosmetic benefits that other restorative treatments can’t beat. On top of their added convenience, other advantages with veneers include:

  • Minimally-invasive procedure
  • Quick and easy appointments
  • Personalized treatment plan
  • Customized to match your teeth
  • Can last up to 15 years
  • Resistant to stains
  • Helps reduce dental sensitivity

Candidacy for Porcelain Veneers

We recommend porcelain veneers to patients who are looking to cover their teeth’s cosmetic issues. If you suffer from one of the following dental problems, veneers are likely an ideal restorative option for you:

  • Uneven teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolored, stained, or yellowed teeth
  • Gaps in between your teeth
  • Teeth with wear and tear

The Porcelain Veneers Process

Dr. Ruehle and our experienced team can apply your porcelain veneers in just two quick appointments. First, you’ll visit our Denton, TX office for an initial consultation, where your cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth to determine if porcelain veneers are the best option for you.

If we decide that veneers are the ideal treatment option, we can begin right away. Your dentist will clean your teeth and match the shade of your custom veneers to your existing teeth to make sure that they blend perfectly. Next, a miniscule portion of your tooth’s enamel is removed, and digital impressions are taken and sent to a lab to aid the crafting process. In the meantime, we’ll provide you with temporary veneers to protect your teeth while we wait for your restorations.

You’ll return to our Denton, TX practice for a second visit once your porcelain veneers are complete. We’ll remove your temporary fixtures, clean your teeth, and attach your new veneers using a resin. After Dr. Ruehle inspects their fit, you can show off your new smile.

Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Ruehle will have you come back to our practice a few weeks after your placement to check the condition of your porcelain veneers. We’ll ensure that they’re functioning well and holding up properly. To ensure your veneers last as long as possible, it’s important to care for them like your natural teeth. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

We also recommend using toothpaste with gentle ingredients like baking soda to avoid scratching your veneers. It’s important to visit our practice once every six months so that Dr. Ruehle can see if there are any issues with your veneers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the porcelain veneers procedure painful?

Receiving porcelain veneers is painless since the procedure itself is minimally-invasive. To ensure you won’t feel any pain or discomfort, your dentist can administer a local anesthetic beforehand. While it’s normal to feel some mild sensitivity right after treatment, this usually fades within only a few hours and is easily manageable with pain medication or an ice pack.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers can typically last for 15 years with proper care. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day. It’s important to also schedule bi-annual visits with Dr. Ruehle at our Denton, TX office so your cosmetic dentist can examine your veneers, and see if there are any issues. To help them last even longer, avoid damaging habits such as biting your fingernails or chewing on ice.

What if my porcelain veneers fall off or get damaged?

If your veneers get damaged or fall out, we recommend keeping the tooth clean and calling our Denton, TX practice right away at (940) 566-4888. Don’t attempt to fix the veneer yourself, as this may lead to further damage. Dr. Ruehle will examine your teeth’s health and have a replacement veneer created so that you can go back to smiling with confidence.

Does dental insurance cover porcelain veneers?

Most dental insurance companies don’t cover the cost of porcelain veneers since it’s considered a cosmetic procedure. However, our practice recommends contacting your insurance provider anyway to get an accurate understanding of your policy and benefits. For more guidance, contact us at Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry by calling (940) 566-4888 so that you can be helped by one of our staff members.
