What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are little porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of any of your teeth with aesthetic problems. Think of them like “masks” for your problem teeth. They are placed over your teeth to give them the appearance of being effortlessly perfect. Each veneer is custom made in a dental lab according to our exact specifications, so you can rest assured that they’ll blend in with your smile. In fact, the reason we choose porcelain for veneers is because it both looks and feels almost exactly like natural tooth enamel, even in the way light reflects off of it.
Am I a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Generally, if you’re dissatisfied with some aspect of the teeth you see smiling back at you in the mirror, you could be an excellent candidate for veneers. Some of the imperfections that veneers can correct include:
- Chips or cracks
- Minor gaps
- Stubborn stains
- Stubby, worn-down, or misshapen teeth
Keep in mind that because getting veneers is a cosmetic procedure, your mouth should be infection-free before we can place them. If you have any outstanding cavities or gum disease, we’ll have to treat those issues beforehand.
What Is the Process for Getting Porcelain Veneers?
After your initial consultation with Dr. Gregg Mosley, your cosmetic dentist in Deer Park, it usually takes two appointments to get your veneers. During the first of these visits, we’ll prepare your teeth for veneers by removing a super-thin sliver of enamel (roughly as thin as a contact lens) from your affected teeth and then taking impressions of those teeth. The impressions will be sent to a dental lab, where your restorations will be custom made by a professional ceramist. While they are being crafted, you’ll wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth and allow you to take your new smile for a test drive. You’ll return to our dental office a few weeks later when your permanent veneers are ready. We’ll replace your temporaries and give you a permanent smile you can be proud of!
What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Here are some of the numerous advantages of revitalizing your smile with veneers:
- Dental porcelain is extremely durable and non-porous, meaning your veneers are much more resistant to staining than your natural teeth.
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain quite well.
- Veneers can correct multiple smile flaws in just one treatment.
- Each veneer is customized to blend in with the rest of your smile.
- If you take good care of your veneers with regular flossing, brushing, and dental checkups, they can last upwards of 15 years.

Are you curious about veneers? You’re in the right place! Please contact our office with any specific concerns you may have. Until then, we’ve included a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about veneers below to make the information you need as easy to access as possible. Read on to learn more.
How Should I Care for My Veneers?
It’s vital to maintain your veneers in Deer Park properly so they can last up to their full 15-year lifespan. The best part is that you don’t have to take many extra steps compared to your normal oral healthcare routine. Make sure you’re brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and visiting our office regularly. Wear a mouthguard during physical activity and get a nightguard if you grind your teeth to protect your veneers. Also, avoid using your teeth for anything other than eating and speaking!
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
The number of veneers that you need will directly depend on the results that you desire. Do you have a single misshapen tooth that you want to correct? Usually just one veneer can seamlessly blend into the rest of your smile. Do you have multiple teeth throughout your smile that are discolored, chipped, or cracked? If so, we’ll probably need multiple veneers to correct your imperfections. After a simple consultation with Dr. Mosley, you’ll have a personalized treatment plan that includes the number of veneers you require.
Are Their Any Drawbacks of Veneers?
Veneers come with a unique set of advantages, which may leave you wondering if there’s a downside. The only disadvantage of veneers is that the procedure is irreversible, which means you must be completely committed to your final results before electing this treatment. In order to place your veneers, we must remove a slight portion of your enamel. This cannot grow back, which means that you will have veneers for the rest of your life (the preference for most patients).
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
Because no two smiles are the same, the cost of your veneers will vary based on numerous factors. Primarily, your price will be determined by the number of veneers that you need. However, preexisting dental issues like gum disease and decay must be treated, and there can be other complications with the process that make veneers more expensive. We will always do our best to make the dentistry you need as affordable as possible. To receive a precise estimate, schedule a consultation with Dr. Mosley.
Will People Be Able to Tell That I Have Veneers?
One of the main advantages of veneers is that they look and feel like your natural teeth. In fact, if you only got one or two teeth veneered, you may even forget which part of your smile was affected. We match veneers to the exact size, shape, and shade of your smile for a completely seamless treatment. And, if you want to transform your entire grin, we can create the veneers based on your specifications for absolutely amazing results. To enhance your smile in a lifelike way, please don’t hesitate to contact our office to discuss veneers.
