Our first step in placing your new veneers will be to evaluate the best shape and contour for you. Depending on your dental situation, we may decide to prepare the tooth to “receive” the veneer. During this first appointment, we will also make an impression of your teeth to send to the lab.
We have found that porcelain veneers deliver the best results because of their strength, resistance to discoloration, biocompatibility, and fit. The lab uses our impression to cast a model upon which they will construct the porcelain veneers. To maximize strength, we make sure that our veneers are built to cover the incisal (biting) edge of the tooth and the gingival edge to fit beneath the gum line and polished to ensure your comfort.
During the second visit, we will match the new veneers to your teeth for color and shape, making sure that everything is just right. Then we will chemically clean and etch your front teeth, attach the veneer(s) with a special adhesive, and cure the bond with a special light. Finally, we will check the fit and polish your new veneers.
At first, you might notice the sensation of your teeth feeling a bit thicker, but this impression will soon pass. What everyone else will notice is your beautiful new smile.

Who is a Candidate?
During your initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Dallas, TX, he will examine your teeth determine if veneers are right for you. While many people can expect to be given the green light for treatment, you must have healthy gums and good general oral health. Bad lifestyle habits and common dental problems (i.e. smoking, excessive drinking, teeth grinding) can cause your veneers to experience a shortened lifespan. If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), make sure to discuss with Dr. Brumbaugh the potential for a mouthguard to protect your veneers from damage over time.
Understanding the Cost of Veneers
No two patients are the same, so when it comes to understanding the cost of veneers, a complete examination must occur first. It is during your initial consultation that you and Dr. Brumbaugh will determine how many teeth should be covered with veneers. Based on the status of your oral health and how many veneers you plan to receive, our team can formulate a cost estimate for you to review. Since most dental insurance companies do not cover cosmetic treatment, we can help you budget for your veneers through available financing. We work closely with CareCredit who can help you break up the cost of treatment into manageable monthly payments.
