A Closer Look at Dental Veneers

A dental veneer is a custom-made shell placed on the front surface of your tooth to conceal various aesthetic imperfections. Our practice in Austin, TX, also offers “no-prep” Lumineers® which can be placed without reshaping your natural teeth.

Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

Patient's smile before veneer placement

Most of our patients in the Austin area make good candidates for porcelain veneers. To qualify for treatment, you primarily need overall good oral health. Teeth with cavities or previous fillings may not be strong enough to withstand the preparation process and may be better suited for a crown. Furthermore, gum disease, bruxism, and other conditions can affect your results and will need to be treated prior to cosmetic upgrades. During your consultation, we will go over the requirements and help you decide if porcelain veneers are a good long-term option. 

What to Expect During the Procedure

Consultation

Patients will meet with the dentist to go over their goals and discuss their cosmetic dentistry options. If you have more significant tooth problems or want multiple restorations, we typically recommend traditional porcelain veneers.

Tooth Prep

After administering a local anesthetic to numb your mouth and gums, we will remove a small layer of enamel and reshape the teeth to make room for the porcelain shells.

Design

Next, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth and design your custom-fitting restoration. We send the information off to our partner lab in Dallas where they hand-craft the veneers to meet your specifications. In the meantime, Dr. Meek or Dr. Tasch can place temporary veneers to cover the reshaped teeth and prevent sensitivity. 

Placement 

In a few weeks, your permanent veneers will be ready and you can return to the dentist's office for your final appointment. We begin by cleaning your teeth and lightly etching the enamel to increase the surface area and promote a stronger bond. Finally, we attach the shell with dental cement and polish to perfection.

What about No Prep Veneers?

Patients looking for a more conservative way to correct a chipped, poorly shaped, or discolored tooth may qualify for Lumineers. The minimally invasive “no-prep” or “limited prep” veneer can be placed without needing a local anesthetic or significant modification of your natural tooth. Our dentist will just make a few small changes to the contours of the enamel if needed before bonding the Lumineer shell. While the ultra-thin design of a Lumineer prevents the restoration from looking bulky against your teeth and gums, they work best for relatively minor dental imperfections. Meanwhile, Lumineers are reversible, so you do not need to commit to future replacements if you decide the treatment is not for you.

Are There Any Risks Associated with Veneers?

Porcelain veneer treatment poses very few risks when performed by skilled dental professionals. The team at 38th Street Dental uses the latest technology to increase the accuracy of treatment and prevent unwanted complications. Side effects are rare and include dental sensitivity and damage to the deeper layers of tissue. However, sensitivity usually subsides after a few weeks. Our meticulous dentists have decades of experience with porcelain veneers and carefully execute our treatments to ensure your comfort and ultimate satisfaction.
