What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of ceramic that bond to the fronts of teeth. Veneers can cover chips, gaps, stains, and other imperfections and are customized for each patient to match the color of your natural teeth.

Unlike dental crowns, dental veneers don’t require removing much tooth structure. Porcelain and composite veneers are an excellent cosmetic procedure for improving the look of your smile without being too invasive.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Before and after porcelain veneers

There are many advantages to choosing dental veneers:

  • Improve the appearance of stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth
  • Close small gaps between teeth
  • Provide a uniform color and symmetry
  • Reshape teeth to be straighter and more proportional
  • Protect damaged tooth enamel
  • Brighten smile with a whiter shade
  • Stay bonded to teeth for 10 to 15 years (with proper care)
  • Mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth
  • Resist stains better than other restorations

Dental veneers designed by Dr. Clinton at Waxahachie Family Dentistry are crafted from durable, high-quality porcelain. When cared for properly, they can significantly improve your smile for over a decade.

Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

Many people are candidates for dental veneers if they have:

  • Stained or discolored teeth that don’t respond to professional whitening
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked or overlapping teeth
  • Permanently stained or damaged enamel
  • Teeth that are misshapen or small

It’s important to have realistic expectations about what veneers can achieve. They work best for minor alignment issues and cosmetic changes. Dr. Clinton will let you know if you’re a good candidate during your initial dental exam.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure at Waxahachie Family Dentistry


The first visit is a thorough consultation. Dr. Clinton will evaluate your oral health and aesthetic goals. He’ll advise you on whether veneers are the right choice and develop a customized treatment plan. We’ll also take digital photos and x-rays of your teeth that help our team customize your dental veneers for your smile.

Natural Teeth Preparation

During the second visit, Dr. Clinton will prepare your teeth for the veneers. About half a millimeter of enamel is removed from the front surface to allow the dental veneers to sit flush with your teeth. Temporary dental veneers will protect your teeth while your permanent veneers are being made.

Custom Dental Veneer Fabrication

Using the impressions from your teeth, a dental laboratory will meticulously fabricate your veneers. The material, shape, and shade will be customized to your liking. This process takes around two weeks.

Bonding Appointment

At your final appointment, Dr. Clinton will remove the temporary veneers before bonding the permanent veneers to your teeth. We’ll try each dental veneer on your teeth to ensure proper fit and color matching before we bond them.


Dr. Clinton may schedule follow-up visits to check your bite and oral health. As with your natural teeth, it’s essential to maintain good hygiene and regular dental checkups.

Caring For Your Porcelain Veneers

Getting porcelain veneers is an investment in your smile. Proper care and maintenance will help them last for many years. Follow these tips from Dr. Clinton for looking after your new dental veneers:

  • Brush twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Take care not to scrub too aggressively, as this can damage the dental veneer surface over time.
  • Floss once daily, taking care to floss between your veneers. This removes plaque and debris that can lead to decay and other problems if left between teeth.
  • Avoid biting into hard foods like ice, nuts, and hard candies, as these can crack or fracture dental veneers. Cut harder foods into small pieces first.
  • Limit intake of staining foods and beverages like coffee, tea, wine, and berries. Rinse with water after consuming them.
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools to open packages, crack nuts, rip open bags, etc. This type of stress can damage dental veneers.
  • Visit Waxahachie Family Dentistry as recommended for professional cleanings and oral exams. This allows Dr. Clinton to check for any issues.
  • Don’t neglect your follow-up appointments. These visits are essential for monitoring the veneers and your overall oral health.
  • Immediately contact our Waxahachie dental office if a veneer chips, cracks, or feels loose. Damage is most often repairable if treated quickly.

Caring for your dental veneers properly helps prevent more extensive repairs later on. By following these simple guidelines, you can help your veneers from Waxahachie Family Dentistry last for many years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dental veneers damage teeth?

Veneers are one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments because they require the removal of just a thin layer of enamel. When placed by an experienced dentist, they don’t damage the teeth.

Do dental veneers look natural?

When crafted from high-quality porcelain, veneers can look incredibly natural. Your dentist can customize the material, shape, and color to match your natural tooth shade, texture, and dimensions.

Can dental veneers be repaired if damaged?

Minor chips or fractures in veneers can often be repaired by polishing or bonding resin. More significant damage may require replacing the veneer.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

With proper oral care, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years or longer. Avoiding clenching and grinding helps prolong veneer longevity.
