Overview of Porcelain Veneers

A quick way to enhance your smile and hide chipped, crooked, decayed, or stained teeth is with porcelain veneers at 32nd Street Dental. Dental veneers are slim shells made out of porcelain that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to improve the look of your smile. Offering customized and minimal-prep veneers, Dr. Brett Cotham and our team of seasoned dentists can help improve the color, size, shape, or length of your teeth. Through Dr. Cotham's revolutionary Smile Design Process, patients are able to get a preview of their proposed smile through the use of dental impressions, models, or even a wax teeth design. Schedule an appointment at our Joplin, MO office to learn more about porcelain veneers and decide if they are right for your needs.

Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic veneers can be used to quickly hide chips and stains on your enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly shaped or spaced. At 32nd Street Dental, your cosmetic veneers will be custom made to fit comfortably over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. In your consultation, our team will listen to your goals and expectations so we can customize your treatment. One of our talented dentists will also determine if you are a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by analyzing your overall oral health. You should not have signs of gum problems, or habitually clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).

What To Expect from Porcelain Veneers

When you have developed your unique treatment plan with us, we will take physical or digital dental impressions. Your cosmetic veneers could be created in our office while you wait, or the impressions can be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be crafted out of high-quality porcelain material. When your custom veneers are ready, one of our dentists will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates space for the veneers and improves the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your veneers are bonded, we will make minor adjustments so your veneers fit well.

Recovery from Porcelain Veneers

Since getting veneers usually does not require anesthesia, you should be able to get back to your daily activities after your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold food for a few days, but this should subside naturally. Your veneers should be cleaned, like your natural teeth, with frequent brushing and flossing. While porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains compared to your natural enamel, you should still avoid staining foods and drinks to keep your smile bright. To avoid chipping your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to go to dental exams and cleanings at 32nd Street Dental so we can monitor the condition of your cosmetic veneers, teeth, and overall oral health. Our team will let you know if your porcelain veneers will need to be repaired or replaced.

Insurance Coverage for Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are a cosmetic procedure so they are generally not included in dental insurance. 32nd Street Dental does accept many payment methods, including medical financing, to make your treatment easier to afford. During your consultation, one of our expert dentists will customize your plan to fit your goals and budget. They will go over an estimate for your treatment and explain your payment options.
