How Do Porcelain Veneers Improve the Appearance of Teeth?
Veneers are made from thin layers of dental porcelain. Like a filling, veneers are permanently affixed to the surface of the tooth to mask imperfections in color, shape, size, or alignment. Veneers are most appropriate for correcting minor cosmetic issues in otherwise healthy teeth. Our veneers are customized to fit securely and to blend in with your natural teeth, so no one will know that you have them unless you choose to tell them.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost in Brandon?
Our dentists and staff will help you find a veneer option that will work for your needs and budget. Your final porcelain veneers cost will be based on the type and number of veneers used as well as the complexity of your dental issues.
Would Porcelain Crowns Work Better for My Dental Issues Than Veneers?
If your teeth are generally healthy and structurally sound but have minor cosmetic flaws, veneers may be the most appropriate option. Crowns, sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth, are the preferred treatment for teeth that are structurally compromised by decay or trauma or for molars that are subject to tremendous force during chewing. Because crowns fit over the entire tooth instead of attaching to the front surface, they actually make the tooth stronger in addition to correcting cosmetic issues. It is important to note that crowns typically do require removal of more natural tooth enamel than veneers in order to fit properly.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for My Dental Issues?
You may be a candidate for veneers if you have any of the following dental issues:
- Veneers can be used to enhance the appearance of teeth that appear too big, too small, or the wrong shape for the size and proportions of the face. Veneers can also be used to cover up chipped or broken teeth or to lengthen teeth that have been worn by tooth grinding.
- Veneers can be used to brighten teeth that are yellow or dingy because of age, smoking, coffee, tea, or medications. Many of our patients turn to veneers when traditional teeth whitening treatments do not provide the desired results. Since veneers are available in a variety of shades, you can customize the level of brightness that you would like to achieve.
- Veneers are a viable alternative to orthodontic treatment for individuals who are self-conscious about small gaps or misalignments in their teeth. Since veneers are discreet, they are ideal for busy adults.

What Happens During the Porcelain Veneers Procedure?
Getting veneers is a relatively simple and painless process. The dentist will start by making a mold of your teeth. This will ensure that the veneers fit precisely. To attach the veneer, the dentist will normally prep the tooth by removing a small layer of the surface enamel to achieve the proper fit. The veneer is bonded to the front of the tooth using a special adhesive. Once in place, the veneer will look and feel just like a natural tooth and will never stain or move out of place.
Is Veneer Porcelain Long-Lasting?
In the absence of any accidents, veneers can last for decades. To keep your new teeth looking their best, you should practice good oral hygiene and avoid activities, such as using your teeth to open packages, that can cause damage. You can brush and floss your veneers just like natural teeth. If you grind your teeth at night, you may want to invest in a custom-fitted night guard to prevent damaging your teeth.
Is There a Type of Veneer That Does Not Require Tooth Prep?
We do offer Lumineers®, which is a special brand of ultra-thin veneer. Lumineers have the advantage of requiring little to no reduction in the natural tooth enamel. They also offer the most natural look and feel and can last more than 20 years with proper care.
