What Are Veneers?
At its core, veneers are thin shells that are designed to effectively conceal everything from stubborn stains to bothersome cracks. By adhering these sheaths to the front-facing portion of your teeth, we can provide you with the beautiful, bright, seamless smile you’ve always dreamed of. Plus, the materials that are used, like porcelain, don’t just look completely natural, they are strong and durable as well. So, you can enjoy all the aesthetic benefits of your new and improved smile without compromising your bite!
How Do Veneers Work?
Veneers are used by countless patients each year to leave everything from discoloration to minor misalignment in the past. If you are interested in using this smile-transforming solution to enhance your own grin, then the first step is to schedule an initial consultation with our team. This allows us to learn more about your smile goals, conduct a comprehensive oral exam, and confirm you are a candidate. From there, we will prep your teeth by removing a small portion of your enamel, which will ensure your veneers look natural, not bulky. Once we take photos and impressions of your teeth, your veneers will be meticulously crafted to perfection. When they’re ready, you’ll come back for your final appointment so we can adhere them to your teeth and make any last-minute adjustments, if needed. All that’s left to do is show off your beautiful new smile!
What Benefits Do Veneers Come With?
Veneers continue to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments because of the numerous benefits they come with, including:
- Full customization.
- Can be completed in as little as two visits.
- Ability to conceal multiple dental flaws in one treatment.
- Can last 10+ years with proper care.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are similar to veneers in many ways, but they have one important distinction: they aren’t permanent. Although only a small portion of enamel is removed to prepare your teeth for veneers, it does mean your teeth will no longer look aesthetically pleasing without them. On the other hand, Lumineers provide you with the ability to return to your original smile in the future. The minimal prep also makes this treatment ideal for patients who struggle with sensitive teeth.
Whether you’ve been striving to smile confidently for years or you’ve just recently begun noticing your dental flaws, there has never been a better time to achieve your dream smile. At Rowlett Dental Associates, our cosmetic dentists will partner with you to ensure the end result is natural, reflects your unique personality, and restores your self-esteem.

If you’re not happy with the way your teeth look, porcelain veneers are an excellent solution to transform your smile; however, it’s normal to have a few concerns before you’re ready to commit to the procedure. We’ll explain the entire process during your initial consultation. To help ease your apprehensions until your visit, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about veneers to make the best decision for your smile.
Are veneers permanent?
Your teeth will need to be altered by removing a small amount of enamel to ensure your veneers fit properly. As a result, the procedure is not reversible because your enamel will not restore itself if the veneers are taken off; however, the procedure is not considered permanent. Your veneers will eventually need to be replaced. As an alternative to traditional veneers, you may be a candidate for Lumineers, which doesn’t require your enamel to be etched, allowing the procedure to be reversible.
How many veneers will I need?
There isn’t any way to determine how many veneers you’ll need without first performing a consultation and learning more about your goals. While a veneer can be applied to a single tooth, such as to fix a chip or crack, we often recommend they are placed on the teeth most visible when you smile. It’s not uncommon to need 6, 8, or 10 veneers to help you achieve the results you want. This will create a more seamless and symmetrical appearance, so your smile looks natural.
Do veneers feel like real teeth?
Modern veneers are thinner than ever, so you won’t need to worry about your teeth feeling bulky. Many patients report veneers to feel natural when they talk and eat. Your restorations are carefully crafted to meet your exact specifications using an impression of your mouth to ensure the ideal fit. By removing some enamel, you can rest assured they won’t protrude in an uncomfortable way. Not to mention, porcelain is smooth to prevent any irritation to the soft tissues in your mouth.
How much do veneers cost?
There isn’t a set price for veneers because the cost is determined by several factors, such as the materials used and your individual treatment plan. Composite veneers are the most affordable, but they don’t have the same durability as porcelain, so you will need new ones more often. Veneers made of porcelain are the most expensive; however, they can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare. The cost of no-prep veneers falls into the middle range between composite and porcelain. Besides the materials used to create your restorations, the number of veneers you need will significantly affect the cost. Don’t worry, our office has several solutions to keep your picture-perfect smile within your budget. Besides traditional payment methods, we also accept third-party financing. We’ll explain the fees associated with your treatment and discuss the available payment options to enhance your smile without draining your wallet.
