In recent years, veneers have become extremely popular for their ability to fix everything from discoloration to chips with one durable, life-like, long-lasting cosmetic treatment option. But what exactly are they? In short, they are a thin shell designed to adhere to the visible surface of your smile, hiding stains, cracks, and other imperfections. They are custom-made for each patient, ensuring the veneers blend in seamlessly to fix one problematic tooth or provide a complete smile makeover!

The Procedure for Getting Porcelain Veneers

Your journey to achieving your smile goals with veneers starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Desai. During your appointment, she will ask you a few questions to better understand what you want to fix about your smile and conduct a thorough exam. If any untreated issues are detected, like gum disease, then she will put a treatment plan in place to restore your oral health before moving forward in the process. However, if your teeth and gums are in tip-top shape, then she will schedule your second visit, which is dedicated to preparing the tooth, picking the shade of your new teeth, taking impressions, and placing your temporary veneers. At your last appointment, you and Dr. Desai will check the fit and color of your permanent set before she bonds the veneers permanently. Then, you can walk out of our dental office with a flawless smile that turns heads for all the right reasons!

Do you need any treatment completed beforehand, like periodontal therapy? Fortunately, you can easily find out the exact cost by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Desai!

Veneers are often thought to cost a pretty penny, but you don't have to be rich or famous to invest in a flawless smile. Many factors affect the cost of veneers, but they can be the most affordable solution. Dr. Desai will create the personalized plan you need to turn the smile of your dreams into reality without spending your life’s savings.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What's Right For Me?

Every mouth is as unique as fingerprints, which means there’s no one-size-fits-all treatment to create a stunning smile. You have more options than ever before to address common imperfections. Each option has a different cost, timeline, and life expectancy. Dr. Desai will examine your mouth and learn more about your preferences to determine which procedures may be right for you, which can include:

  • Braces: Whether metal braces or clear aligners, orthodontics can fix the most complex bite and alignment issues. They can be partially covered under dental insurance, but braces can be a long commitment if you only need minor adjustments.
  • Teeth Whitening: Surface and age-related stains can be improved by up to 8 shades using a professional whitening system. Your results can last for many months or years with the right maintenance.
  • Direct Bonding: A composite resin provides a quick fix for many minor issues, like chips or decay. It can be covered by dental insurance and can last for 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
  • Veneers: Attaching veneers to the teeth visible when smiling corrects many problems at once using a minimally invasive method. You won't have to pay for multiple procedures to address chips, stains, gaps, or other issues. You can save time and money using a solution that can last for a decade or more.

After reviewing all your options, your cosmetic dentist will create a personalized strategy to enhance your smile. A member of our team will review your estimate, so you'll know exactly what you’ll have to pay before committing to anything.

Veneers FAQs

Are you interested in getting a dramatic smile makeover? If so, then veneers may be the best option for you. While they provide numerous benefits to your pearly whites, they are still a hefty investment. For this reason, you’ll probably want to know as much as possible about veneers before committing to them completely. To make this process easier for you, our team at Care 32 Dental of Grand Prairie is happy to share the most commonly asked questions we get about the treatment. Feel free to read along or reach out to us if you don’t see the information you’re looking for on veneers in Grand Prairie!

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

The main purpose of this treatment is to improve the overall appearance of your smile. This means you may receive a certain amount of veneers necessary to achieve your desired results. If a person only wants to address one pesky tooth, then they might only need one veneer to do the trick. Some people can get anywhere from 6 to 8 of them to accomplish a more comprehensive solution. The best way to determine how many you’ll need will be to schedule a consultation with our team. We’ll evaluate your situation and discuss the most effective amount of veneers to reach your smile goals.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Since you’ll eventually need to replace your veneers, they aren’t considered a permanent treatment. The only irreversible aspect is that you’ll need to have your teeth prepared beforehand. This involves removing a small portion off the front of your enamel which will not naturally grow back. Once you receive your treatment, you’ll require your teeth to be covered by veneers or crowns going forward. However, you can expect your results to last around 20 years or more with proper dental care!

Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains, meaning particles from dark-colored drinks and foods will have more difficulty penetrating the surface. This means you’ll be able to drink coffee with little need to worry about discoloring your new pearly whites. It’s important to remember that your veneers will not be stain-proof, so it’s best to limit how often you consume dark-colored meals and beverages.

Do Veneers Give You a Lisp?

Some patients experience difficulty in pronouncing certain words and phrases when first getting veneers. Due to your mouth and tongue not being fully accustomed to your porcelain shells, it’s possible to develop a temporary lisp. As your muscle memory will adjust over time, your tongue will grow used to the slight difference in the presence of your veneers when you talk. Make sure to practice certain sounds often and repeatedly to help make this process easier!
