What are Porcelain Veneers?

Patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile may consider porcelain veneers, which are thin, custom-designed covers that fit over the front of the teeth. Porcelain veneers can fill in small gaps, make small changes to the position of the teeth, as well as mask chips, cracks, and stains. General dentist Dr. Camelia Cooper fits patients with natural-looking veneers that help her patients at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft in Frisco, TX get a beautiful, radiant smile.

  • Improving a wide variety of dental issues and conditions (cracks, chips, discoloration, etc.)

Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?

Cosmetic porcelain veneers in Frisco, TX at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft may be used to rapidly mask stains and chips in your tooth enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly shaped or spaced. Dr. Cooper custom makes your porcelain veneers — so they fit comfortably over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. At your consultation, she will listen to your goals and expectations so she can customize your treatment plan. Dr. Cooper may also see if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking the total health of your teeth and gums. Candidates should not have symptoms of gum disease or routinely clench their jaw and grind their teeth.

How are porcelain veneers installed?

Before a porcelain veneer is placed, Dr. Cooper must remove a thin layer of enamel from the front surface of each tooth to make room for the veneer. After the enamel is removed, a digital impression of the teeth is made and sent to a dental laboratory where an expert will make the patient’s veneers. The veneer is made of several thin layers of ceramic. Until the veneer is ready, the patient will wear a temporary veneer. Once the veneer is ready, the patient will return to Sweet Tooth Dental Loft for an appointment where a special resin is used as a bonding agent between the veneer and the tooth. Veneers are durable and can last up to 20 years with proper oral hygiene and care.

How long does it take to recover from veneers?

For the first few days, a patient may be more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures because of the removal of the natural enamel. This should subside within a few days. A week after the veneers are placed, the patient will need a follow-up appointment at Dr. Cooper’s office to make sure the mouth is responding well to the veneers. Due to the material that they are made of and since they are easy to polish, the probability of staining veneers is slight to none. It’s still a good idea to brush after consuming foods or drinks that stain the teeth, especially coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Veneers should be brushed with non-abrasive toothpaste, flossed, and rinsed with mouthwash just like natural teeth. Patients should be sure to keep up with regular dental appointments at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft so Dr. Cooper can perform professional maintenance by polishing the veneers with a special, non-abrasive paste to keep them in pristine condition.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

What happens to veneers after ten years?

While porcelain veneers are strong and durable, you may need to replace them eventually. However, by scheduling routine dental exams and cleanings, avoiding certain foods, and practicing good oral hygiene, they typically last longer. Our team can help you maintain and care for your veneers over the years.

Do porcelain veneers stain?

Because porcelain veneers have stain-resistant characteristics, they will not become discolored. The teeth around them can still stain, which makes them look a different color from your veneers. We recommend avoiding certain dark-colored drinks, like tea, coffee, or red wine. Following your procedure, we will provide aftercare instructions and a list of foods or beverages to avoid.

How much do porcelain veneers cost?

Your veneers will vary in price. Our dentist can provide a cost estimate during your consultation and help you decide if they work best for you. While most insurance groups do not cover porcelain veneers, we offer payment plans and options to help make them affordable so you have a beautiful, white smile.

Can porcelain veneers be whitened?

It's important to understand that porcelain veneers are crafted from stain-resistant material. This means they do not respond to traditional teeth whitening procedures like your natural teeth would. If you're considering whitening, it's best to discuss this with Dr. Cooper at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft before getting veneers. She can match the shade of your veneers to your whitened natural teeth for a consistent and bright smile.

Will I need to make any changes to my dental health routine with porcelain veneers?

Regular brushing and flossing are essential to maintain both your natural teeth and veneers. We recommend using a nonabrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. While porcelain veneers are durable, they are not indestructible. Avoiding habits like biting nails or chewing on hard objects can help in preserving their condition.

How do I know if my veneers need to be repaired or replaced?

Signs that your veneers need attention include chips or cracks, a change in fit, discomfort, or an altered appearance. If you notice any of these issues, it's important to schedule an appointment at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft. Regular dental check-ups are also key in monitoring the condition of your veneers and ensuring they remain in good shape for as long as possible.
