Porcelain Veneers in Arlington TX
Teeth veneers are thin shells placed over the front, visible portion of teeth to improve their appearance. These thin shells are bonded onto the front surface of the teeth, so they do not shift and look natural. Patients love them for their simplicity and versatility.
The placement of teeth veneers requires precision, skill, and attention to cosmetic detail. At our Arlington dentist’s office, we place dental veneers regularly, designing each set to match and enhance each patient’s smile.

What is the Difference Between Veneers and Crowns?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option and do not serve any medical health function. A veneer covers only the front of the tooth to improve its appearance. Crowns cover the entire tooth like a cap. While crowns are cosmetic, they are also a type of dental restoration when they cover and protect a damaged or diseased tooth.
What Materials are Used for Veneers?
Dental veneers made of composite resin are available, but we have found that they do not look as natural as porcelain veneers and are not as long-lasting. We use only high-quality porcelain veneers that are natural-looking and translucent. Porcelain is highly durable and does not stain. We can create a custom color for your veneers to best match the shade of your other teeth or turn up the wattage of your smile by placing veneers that are whiter and brighter on all visible teeth.
How Can Porcelain Veneers Help Me?
Porcelain veneers can correct several perceived cosmetic issues with your teeth. They are a quick solution that takes just a few weeks to complete. If you have any of the following problems with your teeth, porcelain veneers can give you beautiful, natural-looking improvement:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Gaps between your teeth
- Misaligned or overlapping teeth
- Resizing or reshaping teeth
- Worn tooth enamel
- Discoloration or stains
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
At your porcelain veneer consultation, we get to know you and learn about your esthetic goals. Based on our discussion, we will take an impression and have our highly skilled lab create a mockup of what the veneers will look like. Many patients want their veneers to match their natural color while others want to whiten their smile… it’s completely up to you!
We prepare the teeth by carefully removing a thin layer of enamel from the front and top surface. This ensures a strong, attractive fit and allows us to place your veneers close to the gums without a gap. You go home with temporary veneers attached with removable glue. During this phase, brush gently and avoid crunchy, tough, or hard foods that could displace the temporary surface. Our highly skilled dental lab takes about 2 weeks to make your beautiful veneers.
When your porcelain veneers are ready, you return to our office. We remove the temporary shells and check the permanent ones for a good fit. We make any adjustments needed at this time to ensure a precise, natural-looking fit. After cleaning your teeth, we permanently bond your veneers to your teeth. There is no recovery or waiting period. You will walk out the door with a dazzling smile at the end of your appointment!
Do Porcelain Veneers Look Natural
Most people will never know you have veneers. Porcelain veneers are semi-translucent, resembling dental enamel. They are extremely thin, light, and almost impossible to spot unless you are a dental professional. No other restoration matches porcelain veneers for a healthy, natural look. Porcelain veneers are also durable and resistant to staining, so you can enjoy coffee, tea, sauces, and red wine without worrying about staining your veneers.
Porcelain veneers are increasingly popular due to their versatility, natural look, and ability to correct a wide range of cosmetic dental problems. We look forward to demonstrating how porcelain veneers can put a brand-new smile on your face!
