What are Porcelain Veneers (Dental Veneers)?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are a thin coating of porcelain that is placed on the surface of the tooth to make teeth whiter and shaped more evenly. Porcelain veneers are often used to close gaps, even out teeth length and correct discoloration or uneven coloration.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
The greatest benefit of porcelain veneers is beautiful, even smile. Patients who have broken, chipped or cracked teeth from a sporting event or accident can also enjoy the benefits of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are safe and effective for restoring the natural beauty of your teeth.

How Does Porcelain Veneers Work?
Once porcelain veneers are selected as the treatment option, Dr. Thomas will make a mold of your teeth. The mold will be used to make porcelain veneers that match the desired size, shape and color. The preparation of your porcelain veneers usually takes about two weeks. When your veneers are ready, we schedule a second appointment during which Dr. Thomas prepares your teeth by removing a layer of enamel. Removing enamel ensures that the veneers fit perfectly to the contour of your natural teeth. The veneers are then bonded to your teeth.
Recovering from Porcelain Veneers
After your treatment, your mouth will be sore for three to five days. Non-prescription pain medicine is a great way to reduce any discomfort. Once this minimal discomfort subsides, you will look and feel great — especially when you smile!
How Do I Care for Porcelain Veneers?
No special treatment is required to ensure a beautiful smile with porcelain veneers. Be sure to continue a good dental hygiene routine. Brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss daily and rinse with mouthwash to avoid bacteria build-up.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Porcelain veneers are a highly customized treatment option to meet your dentistry needs. As such, the cost of the total treatment varies based on your personal goals. Your dental insurance plan may provide coverage for most of the expense. For those out-of-pocket expenses, Smile Envy Dental Group is happy to provide a financing option through CareCredit®.
