What Are Veneers?
A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of dental porcelain. This resilient material is well-known for its resistance to stains and chips, as well as how much it looks like natural tooth enamel. Each veneer is precisely crafted to fit perfectly over the front surface of a tooth and concealing any unwanted imperfections. Essentially, veneers are used to transform the size, shape, and color of teeth to address issues like:
- Stubborn stains or enamel discoloration
- Small chips or cracks
- Slightly crooked or gapped teeth
- Teeth that are naturally small or misshapen
What’s It Like to Get Veneers?
Many patients worry that correcting their smile will require numerous drawn-out procedures. If you are concerned about this as well, you have nothing to worry about with veneers! Even though veneers can provide truly amazing results that can potentially last for many years to come, getting them is a quick and easy process. In most cases, transforming your pearly whites with veneers will only take two appointments.
The First Appointment
During your initial appointment, Dr. Dale W. Greer will get to know you to better understand your smile goals. To ensure you both envision the same results, it’s best to bring photos of smiles you like to use as examples. After understanding your goals, Dr. Greer will also consider your facial structure, including your skin tone. He’ll create a unique treatment based on these factors to achieve the best, most lifelike results. He’ll send this information to the dental lab where they will carefully craft your veneers to meet your exact expectations.
Before you head home for the day, Dr. Greer will clean and prepare your teeth. He’ll buff a tiny amount of enamel, about 1-2 millimeters. This etches their surfaces to ensure your veneers sit flush on your teeth. He will attach temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones, which usually takes about 2 weeks.
The Second Appointment
By the time you return for your follow-up visit, your veneers will be crafted and ready for placement. Dr. Greer will apply a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Then, your temporary veneers are removed, and Dr. Greer will ensure your final ones fit correctly before bonding them to your teeth. After checking that everything is to your liking, you’ll walk out of the office with a new smile.

Understanding the Cost of Veneers
There isn’t a set fee for veneers because the cost is determined by several factors, like the number of teeth you’re treating.

We’ll also be happy to discuss your different payment options and help you find the solutions you need to achieve your aesthetic goals without breaking the bank.

Are you ready to fall in love with your smile? Veneers might be the solution for you. It’s normal to have a few apprehensions before committing to the treatment, but your cosmetic dentist in North Dallas, Dr. Greer, will put your worries at ease. Here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about veneers.
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
You can have a veneer placed on a single tooth; however, we will recommend bonding them to the front 2, 4, or 8 teeth because they are the most visible when you smile. This helps create a seamless look between your veneers and your natural tooth, so no one will know they are there.
Will I Also Need Gum Contouring?
Many patients who choose veneers also benefit from gum recontouring. This helps reveal more of a tooth’s surface for people who have a gummy smile, which ensures a better bond between the enamel and the veneer. In some cases, the additional procedure is recommended to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing gum line to maximize the overall results of the transformation process.
Does Getting Veneers Hurt?
Modern veneers are thinner than ever, so less of your tooth’s enamel is removed during the bonding process. This makes the procedure less invasive and more comfortable. We may use a local anesthetic to provide a pain-free treatment, but it isn’t always necessary. After your veneers are in place, they won’t cause any discomfort.
How Long Will My Veneers Last?
Although veneers are thin, they are durable. In fact, they are proven to last for decades with the right care. You can protect your investment by maintaining your oral hygiene at home using nonabrasive dental products. It’s also best to see your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Avoid using your teeth as tools or chewing on inedible objects in between your appointments. If a veneer breaks or falls off, it can be replaced to reinstate your beautiful smile.
Can I Use Dental Insurance to Pay for Veneers?
Unfortunately, most dental insurances don’t cover porcelain veneers because the treatment is elective, but there are some exceptions. If applicable, we will work with your insurance carrier to maximize your annual benefits. A member of our team will file the required claim forms to reduce your out-of-pocket balance.
