All About Porcelain Veneers

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, porcelain veneers provide big smile improvements with just one procedure. Thin coverings made of beautiful porcelain, the veneers are bonded directly onto the front of the teeth, instantly improving their shape, size, and color. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a number of imperfections affecting the front teeth, including:

  • Chips or cracks
  • Slight misalignments
  • Permanent discolorations
  • Small gaps

Patients who are in decent oral and overall health, free of tooth decay and gum infections, are usually good candidates for porcelain veneers.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure

Your porcelain veneer treatment will be completed over the course of two visits to our Mesquite office. With the first, Dr. McKnight will evaluate your smile and facial structures to determine the veneer color, size, and shape that would benefit you most. You’ll have the opportunity to thoroughly discuss your goals and desires to ensure that you get just the look you want (it can help to bring in photos of what you do and don’t want during the initial appointment).

Once Dr. McKnight has put together your treatment plan, he’ll prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. This involves slightly buffing off a bit of tooth enamel to make room for the new coverings. Temporary veneers are then placed, and your information is sent off to our trusted lab where your veneers will be expertly crafted.

After about two weeks, your veneers will come back from the lab and be ready for placement. You’ll return to our office where Dr. McKnight will check them one last time -- and you’ll give the final approval before they’re securely bonded on. After that, you’ll leave our office the proud owner of a new, beautiful smile!

Which Cosmetic Dental Service Is Right For Me?

Although veneers are one of the most popular smile-enhancing services, they certainly aren’t the only one. For example, if you want to eliminate stubborn surface stains, professional teeth whitening and direct bonding may be an option! Ultimately, the answer to which treatment is best for you depends on several factors, including your aesthetic goals, your budget, and how long you want the results to last. One of the reasons veneers are widely loved is because they can fix several dental flaws at once and the results can last for upwards of 20 years!

How to Make Veneers Affordable

It’s very rare for dental insurance providers to cover the cost (or even a portion of the cost) of veneers. The good news is that we welcome another financial solution: third-party financing with CareCredit. As a result, you don’t have to pay for your veneers in one big installment. Instead, you can choose a payment plan that works with your budget, spacing out the cost into manageable, monthly chunks in the process. Of course, you also have the option to use a credit card. We are proud to welcome Discover, Visa, and MasterCard.
