Porcelain Veneers – Fort Worth, TX
Porcelain Veneers Perfecting Smiles
Your smile affects how you feel about yourself. If you’re not happy with your front teeth, let us transform them with attractive, custom-made porcelain veneers in Fort Worth, TX.
Designed to completely cover flaws like chips, discoloration, or misalignments, veneers alter the appearance of teeth in the smile zone. Natural-looking and long-lasting, your custom veneers will rejuvenate your smile, increasing your confidence and enhancing your social and professional interactions, all in as few as three visits.
At your veneers consultation, we’ll examine your mouth and facial structure to design your one-of-a-kind porcelain veneers. We will then remove a small amount of enamel from each tooth that will receive a veneer, and we’ll take an impression to send to the dental lab. Before you leave the dental office, we'll place temporaries.
A skilled ceramist will hand-make your veneers from fine dental porcelain that reflects light like natural tooth enamel. When your custom veneers are completed, we will remove your temporaries and bond your permanent veneers in place, giving you a gorgeous new smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding
If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. The dentist can apply liquid composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth's color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.

Are Veneers Permanent?
Veneers aren’t technically permanent because they will eventually need to be replaced. However, they are considered to be irreversible. To ensure that veneers fit properly on the teeth, small amounts of enamel need to be filed away. Removed enamel does not grow back, so teeth that have been prepared in this way will always need to be covered with either veneers or crowns.
Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?
Veneers that are made from porcelain are stain-resistant. Porcelain is a nonporous material, so the particles in fark-colored foods and beverages have a harder time slipping beneath the surface. Ultimately, you should be able to enjoy your morning cup of coffee without worrying too much about staining your veneers. Just keep in mind that veneers are not stain-proof, so excessive consumption of coffee can still have a negative impact over time. Moderation is key!
Do Veneers Give You a Lisp?
Some people have trouble pronouncing certain words when they first get veneers, resulting in a temporary lisp. This is partially due to muscle memory, as the tongue is not used to accounting for the presence of veneers when you talk. The tiny difference in thickness affects the way that the tongue moves. The tongue will eventually adjust on its own, but practicing the pronunciation of certain sounds can help to speed this process along.
How Many Veneers Will I Need?
The goal of veneers is for all of your visible teeth to match. Therefore, you’ll receive an appropriate number to accomplish that goal. Some patients opt for a single veneer to cover one pesky tooth, while others get anywhere from 6 to 12 for a more complete smile makeover. During your initial consultation with us, we will determine what the right number is to help you achieve the goals you have for your smile.
