Patients ask about porcelain veneers

Patients ready to design a new smile may be concerned about the time in doing so. Cosmetic dentistry options such as porcelain veneers make it possible to obtain a completely different look in a short period. San Antonio, Texas, area patients who visit Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio and consult with Dr. Edward Camacho will find that solutions such as porcelain veneers can help create smiles they love at a cost they can afford!

What are porcelain veneers?

Also known as dental veneers, porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment. For a good reason, they can significantly change the smile’s appearance by covering imperfections. These paper-thin restorations are bonded onto the front of the teeth to disguise problems such as:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Turned or misaligned teeth
  • Teeth with chips and cracks
  • Short, worn teeth
  • Imperfectly shaped teeth

The phases of obtaining porcelain veneers

Patients interested in porcelain veneers will often ask Dr. Camacho and our team about what to expect during the process. It starts with a consultation appointment. During this time, Dr. Camacho will determine if they are a viable candidate for veneers or desire alternative treatments such as composite resin bonding. We will ensure the patient gets all their questions answered and feel confident about their treatment.

Once the patient has decided to move forward with treatment, preparations begin. Depending on the type of veneer, the tooth may or may not be prepped. Prepped teeth will require that the patient wear temporary veneers for about two to three weeks. Non-prep veneers require no provisional veneers. Dr. Camacho will then go through a unique process where the patient views pictures of sizes, shapes, and colors of veneers, discusses their desired outcome with the patient, and offers professional recommendations.

Digital teeth impressions are sent to an elite laboratory to create the final restoration. Once the veneer returns to the practice, patients return for a try-in appointment, and any desired changes are noted for the lab. Once the patient approves their final restorations, they are bonded into place. Patients find veneers to be a worthwhile investment in their smiles, resulting in increased confidence and self-esteem, which allows them to fully enjoy and engage in life.
