Veneers Q & A

Dentistry of Highland Village

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain layers custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and match the contour and natural look of healthy-looking, natural teeth. They also provide resilience and can function like your natural teeth. Veneers can be a good solution if you have:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Stained teeth

They can recreate the look of strong, natural teeth enamel. The team at Dentistry of Highland Village can bond veneers over your teeth in a simple in-office procedure.

How do veneers work?

Usually, the process to fit you and place veneers on your teeth takes two appointments.

At the first visit, the team at Dentistry of Highland Village takes impressions of your teeth and sends the imaging of to a dental lab to create your porcelain veneers just for you.

The second visit involves putting on your veneers. First, they use local anesthesia to numb your teeth when placing veneers. Then they bond the veneer on your teeth with a strong adhesive and polish the margins of the veneer.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

If you have aesthetic issues like chipped or yellowish teeth, you might be a good candidate for veneers. Make sure to talk it over with the team at Dentistry of Highland Village before deciding firmly one way or the other. Getting veneers is an irreversible procedure, so it's important to weigh your options and understand the specifics.

At your consultation — and any other visits before getting veneers — voice all of your concerns to the Dentistry of Highland Village team, and ask any questions you might have.

How long do veneers last?

Porcelain veneers are sturdy and can last for up to 20 years. However, a key determining factor is how well you maintain them. If you are lazy about practicing good oral health habits like brushing and flossing regularly, your veneers can deteriorate and fall out.

Once you get veneers, the team at Dentistry of Highland Village maintains regular check-ups with you to make sure you are taking good care of them. These check-ups should help hold you accountable and motivate you to keep your veneers in good shape. Otherwise, they won't last nearly as long as you'd like.
