Porcelain Veneers

For teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen, or otherwise imperfect, porcelain veneers offer a wonderful cosmetic solution. Thin sheaths of porcelain affixed directly to the surface of these teeth, veneers fix any number of imperfections all at once. They’re quickly becoming one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry, and it’s no surprise why -- the benefits of porcelain veneers are significant.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

  • Minimally-invasive procedure
  • Ultra-thin dental veneers look just like your natural teeth
  • Highly customizable for precisely the smile you want
  • Stain-resistant porcelain stays the same beautiful shade of white for years
  • Cared for properly, dental veneers can last for a decade or more

Patients who are in acceptable dental and overall health are typically good candidates for porcelain veneers. Cavities and gum disease should be treated before undergoing any cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Procedure for Porcelain Veneers

Once you’ve decided that porcelain veneers are the best option for improving your smile, you can expect the procedure to be carried over into two appointments at Dr. Greer’s office. The first is for discussing your smile goals and preparing your teeth to receive your veneers. After the devices have been created in our trusted lab, you’ll come back for their final placement -- and you’ll leave our office flashing your new, beautiful smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening

For patients only looking to improve the shade of their smile, an excellent alternative to porcelain veneers is teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening provides a rejuvenated, refreshed look for teeth that are stained or discolored as a result of poor dental hygiene, tobacco use, or simply day-to-day living. Dr. Greer offers in-office and at-home whitening treatments to allow you to brighten your smile at your own pace.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

If you’ve tried an over-the-counter teeth whitening kit, you probably didn’t get the results you were hoping for. Please know there’s a big difference in professional teeth whitening -- and what your dentist offers is far superior to these one-size-fits all solutions. First of all, a professional can administer a more powerful bleaching gel for better, brighter results. And you can never be sure how long an over-the-counter kit has been sitting on the shelf, slowly losing its potency. What’s more, your smile is anything but one-size-fits-all -- and your dentist knows that. With professional teeth whitening, you get the safest, most reliable, and best looking results possible.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

If you are embarrassed by stained, chipped, or gapped teeth, you don't have to feel insecure about your smile. Your cosmetic dentist in Dallas can give you flawless teeth. Don't worry if you have a few questions, because Dr. Dale W. Greer will explain everything during your consultation. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

You don't have to worry about a painful day in the dentist's chair because your comfort is always our top priority. Although it isn't always necessary, a local numbing agent can be used to block any pain. You may feel some unusual sensations or pressure, but you won't have any outright pain. Depending on your treatment, your mouth can be tender for a few days after the effects of any numbing medications dissipate. You can manage it using an over-the-counter pain reliever and eating soft foods. Dr. Greer will review any additional aftercare instructions before you go home.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Cosmetic dentistry isn't a single procedure. Instead, it's a category used for services targeting aesthetic issues. Every procedure has a different lifespan, and various factors affect the duration of your results. You can get the most from your investment by keeping your mouth clean and healthy. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss every night. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. It's best to break any bad habits that can harm your dental health, like smoking, chewing on your fingernails, or grinding your teeth.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?

Contrary to what you might have heard, you don't have to be rich to benefit from cosmetic dentistry. There are more treatments than ever before, which means there's a solution to fit your budget, like teeth whitening or dental bonding. Not to mention, our office offers various financial solutions to keep an attractive smile affordable for everyone. We will create the personalized treatment plan you need to turn the smile of your dreams into reality without spending your life's savings. We will review all your payment options, so your financial situation doesn't stand in the way of achieving a confident smile, like monthly installments through a third-party financing company.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Dental insurance rarely covers cosmetic dentistry, but there are exceptions. Many cosmetic treatments also provide restorative benefits. If Dr. Greer determines treatment is medically necessary, you can use your coverage to offset the amount you will pay out-of-pocket. Your benefits may also include your consultation or any preparatory procedures. A member of our office will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize your coverage. They'll explain how your benefits are being used and your payment options for any remaining balance.
