Porcelain Veneers in Boerne, TX
Dental veneers – also known as laminates – are used to cosmetically enhance the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that are customized for a desirable color and shape. They are bonded to the surface of the teeth to reshape broken, misshapen or irregular teeth, as well as provide a solution for discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments. Patients with veneers typically achieve a natural tooth appearance that is well-tolerated by the gums and also resistant to future stains.

that dental veneers are a conservative way of completely making over your smile? In fact, porcelain veneers are a go-to cosmetic procedure that has become popular with celebrities who want a brighter and more symmetrical smile.

Fortunately, affordability and accessibility make it easy for anyone to get dental veneers – including patients.
Candidates For Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers may be right for you if you are looking for an alternative to crowns and caps. Veneers can help you if you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken, chipped, irregularly shaped or misaligned. To find out more about whether porcelain veneers are right for you, contact our Boerne cosmetic dentist to schedule a consultation.
The Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Before porcelain veneers can be placed on the teeth, the surface of the teeth must be prepared for bonding. After administering a local anesthetic, our Boerne dentist will buff away approximately half a millimeter from the surface of the teeth. You’ll then bite into a mold that will be used to form your veneers in a dental lab. When the veneers are ready, you’ll be asked to return to have them fitted, bonded and adjusted for shape and color.
Is There any Post-Treatment Care Instructions for my Porcelain Veneers?
There is no special care required for porcelain veneers, and normal brushing and flossing can be resumed immediately. Because veneers are usually placed over the course of two appointments, it is normal to experience some sensitivity between the first and second visits in our Boerne dental office when the teeth have been reduced in preparation for bonding.
“She is the best dentist She had been my dentist since I was a child and performed everything from Fillings to veneers. When she moved from the Houston area, to the Boerne area, I considered driving there just for dental care. There’s no one like her!” – Alex B.
