As much as we all wish we had the perfect smile, it is common to have imperfections that litter the teeth. The good news is that there are a variety of cosmetic solutions available that can help you achieve the pearly whites you’ve been dreaming of. At Midtown Family Dentistry of Dallas, we offer customized veneers so you can transform the appearance of your smile. To find out if veneers are the cosmetic solution for you, schedule a consultation with us.
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are placed over the front-facing surfaces of the teeth to mask imperfections. This durable, natural-looking material can conceal a single damaged tooth or a mouthful of cosmetic flaws. Usually, veneers are used to address teeth that are chipped, gapped, misaligned, misshapen, discolored, undersized, and more!
It usually takes two appointments for veneers to be placed. During your first visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth by filing down a minimal portion of your enamel to ensure that the veneers lay flat against the line of your smile. Once your teeth have been prepped, we’ll take impressions to send to the dental lab. You will be given temporary veneers in the meantime. In just a few short weeks, you can return to the practice where your veneers will be adhered to the teeth. Then, you can show off your new and improved smile.
There are numerous benefits that you can expect to experience when you get veneers. Here are just some of them:
So, you might be convinced that porcelain veneers work. You may even think they’d do your smile a lot of good! However, there’s a chance you’re worried about the cost of veneers in Dallas. These prosthetics, after all, aren’t exactly the cheapest cosmetic service. Furthermore, it’s a good idea to consider other options. Given these facts, then, we at Midtown Family Dentistry are here to help. At your initial consultation, our team will walk you through several cosmetic treatments and narrow down the one that’s best for you.
Porcelain veneers are certainly an excellent choice. Even so, assessing the rest of our office’s offerings would be wise. Each cosmetic service comes at a different cost and does different things. That being said, here’s what you can expect from each treatment:
Though veneers are durable and protective, they usually aren’t covered by dental plans. Most insurance providers see them as purely cosmetic and thus “medically unnecessary.” There can be exceptions, but you shouldn’t count on finding one.
Fortunately, Midtown Family Dentistry has ways to make veneers more affordable. In particular, our team offers the following options:

Many of our patients claim that properly fitted veneers typically feel completely natural with the rest of their smiles. They sometimes don’t even notice the porcelain shells while eating or speaking. Your veneers will be specifically designed to fit flawlessly on your affected teeth based on the impressions we take after removing a small amount of your enamel. This process will prevent the shells from appearing awkward or feeling uncomfortable. The porcelain material also looks and feels just as smooth as your permanent teeth, so it won’t irritate your soft oral tissues. This will ensure a perfectly comfortable smile makeover.
Although veneers provide a long-lasting solution for your teeth, you’ll eventually have to replace them. That said, you can expect your treatment to go as far as 15 years or more with proper care! The only part of the procedure that is irreversible is the removal of a tiny portion of your enamel. This will allow the veneers to lay flush on your teeth. Since your enamel won’t grow back on its own, you’ll need to have your pearly whites covered with veneers or dental crowns going forward.
Our main priority of veneers is to ensure all of your visible teeth match perfectly. The number of porcelain shells that you’ll need will depend on your specific situation and smile goals. You may only require a single veneer if you have one pesky tooth that needs correction. Other patients can sometimes need as many as 6 to 8 for a more extensive smile makeover. The exact number of veneers required will be discussed during your initial consultation with our dental team. We’ll assess your oral health and determine the necessary number to help you achieve your dream smile!
Unlike your natural pearly whites, porcelain veneers are made of non-porous material. Since particles in dark-colored meals and drinks will have a more difficult time penetrating the surface, they’re highly stain-resistant. This means you’ll be able to enjoy most of your favorite beverages, like coffee, without worrying much about staining your new teeth. However, this doesn’t mean your veneers are completely stain-proof, as they can become discolored with overexposure to dark-pigmented foods and drinks. Make sure to drink coffee in moderation and rinse your mouth afterward to preserve your shiny veneers.
