Natural-Looking, Durable Materials

Our practice in San Antonio mostly uses dental veneers made of high-quality porcelain. Porcelain is the preferred material in cosmetic dentistry for many reasons, including:

  • Porcelain near-perfectly resembles natural enamel. No one will be able to tell that your smile contains prosthetics.
  • Porcelain is stain-resistant, so you won't have to worry about your dental veneers losing their luster over the years.
  • Porcelain is well-tolerated by gum tissue.
  • Porcelain is remarkably durable and can easily withstand normal biting forces.

Porcelain Veneers Treatment Process

Receiving porcelain veneers typically requires two visits to our San Antonio office. Most patients can expect their treatment to follow this basic timeline:

Preparing the Teeth

When you choose to receive veneers at our San Antonio practice, our dentists must first prepare each imperfect tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This ensures that the porcelain veneers lie flush alongside your adjacent teeth and don't appear bulky. Our dentists perform this step conservatively to retain as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Impressions

Next, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to our trusted dental laboratory, where your porcelain veneers will be fabricated.

Temporary Veneers

While the dental lab is crafting your new restorations, which can take a few weeks, we may provide temporary veneers. These protect each affected tooth and keep your smile in good condition until your final veneers can be bonded into place.

Veneer Fabrication

At the dental lab, a trained ceramist will handcraft your restorations using medical-grade materials. The technician will combine layers of porcelain and color-match your restorations to the shade of your natural teeth for truly lifelike results.

Placement of Final Veneers

Once the dental lab ships your porcelain veneers to our San Antonio office, we will schedule you for a second appointment. During this visit, our dentists will assess your veneers and bond them permanently into place.

Is the Veneers Procedure Painful?

/

No. Local anesthetic can be used to numb the area being treated. If you are anxious about dental work, our San Antonio practice offers sedation options to help you feel calm and relaxed during treatment. 

See How Veneers Fit

By removing enamel from the treated tooth, Dr. Perry ensures that the porcelain veneer will fit snugly and securely.

Paying for Treatment

Does Insurance Cover Veneers?

Because veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment, they are considered purely elective. As a result, most insurance plans do not cover the cost. At River City Dental Solutions, we will work with you to help you afford the treatment you deserve. Simply speak with one of our financial experts during your next visit.

Save Money with a Membership

In addition to accepting cash, checks, and most major credit cards, we also offer a membership plan through Smile Advantage – a trusted alternative to dental insurance. When you become a member, you can enjoy free exams and cleanings as well as 20 percent off of all other services.

Alternatives to Veneers

Dental veneers offer a stunning, versatile way to transform your smile, but they're not the only option. Depending on your goals, needs, and budget, another dentistry treatment may be a better fit for your smile. Your dentist will discuss alternative treatments to dental veneers during your consultation. These may include: 

Dental Bonding

In dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth surface to hide chips and cracks or to change the shape of a tooth. Bonding can be applied in just one appointment, and treatment costs are typically lower than the cost for veneers. However, bonding is not as durable as a veneer: bonding can stain, may break off of a tooth, and usually only lasts for a few years. Since bonding is reversible, it may be a good choice for patients who are seeking a cosmetic upgrade but are hesitant about the permanent changes required for veneers.

Teeth Whitening

Our San Antonio practice offers professional teeth whitening that can dramatically brighten your smile. Whitening treatments can be an excellent option for a more dazzling smile if the only concern is extrinsic staining, meaning stains on the outside of a tooth caused by coffee, smoking, and other substances. However, whitening treatments cannot treat intrinsic staining inside the tooth, which can stem from trauma to a tooth or the use of certain medications. Veneers may be a better option to hide these deep stains or if your smile also has minor flaws like a chipped tooth.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are caps that fully surround a tooth. They are often used to restore the function and appearance of a damaged tooth, support tooth structure affected by extensive decay, and protect a tooth after root canal treatment. Like veneers, crowns are designed to blend in seamlessly with your smile. While veneers require a layer of enamel to be removed from the tooth, dental crowns require more extensive reshaping of the tooth structure. A crown may be a better treatment choice than a veneer if a tooth needs structural support and not just aesthetic enhancement.

Orthodontics

While veneers can hide the appearance of minor misalignment, orthodontics will more likely be recommended to patients with moderate to severe malocclusion. Misaligned teeth can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health concerns. Since veneers are a cosmetic treatment, they only camouflage crooked teeth and won't straighten them. Our San Antonio, TX, practice offers Damon™ Braces and Six Month Smiles® to patients seeking to straighten their teeth for a stunning smile.
