Porcelain Veneers

Do you look through glossy magazine photos, Instagram squares, or Youtube videos and wonder how all these celebrities and influencers have perfect teeth? You might be surprised that the secret to perfectly aligned pearly whites is often porcelain veneers.

If you’ve skipped a couple of dental cleanings and checkups or feel like you didn’t hit the genetic smile lottery, there’s no shame in improving your smile through cosmetic dentistry techniques, like veneers.

Many people choose to take advantage of long-lasting, stain-free porcelain veneers, and San Antonio cosmetic dentist, Dr. Nikhaar Keshwani, is eager to help you obtain the perfect smile.

Porcelain Veneers Defined

Veneers are exceptionally thin, individually crafted ceramic shells. They look, feel, and function like healthy teeth. At our San Antonio dental office, we choose color-matched porcelain because this material is stain-resistant and closely mimics natural enamel. Since our veneers are artisanal and crafted for your smile, they should look attractive, real, and pristine.

If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, you’re probably wondering “how much do veneers cost, and how long do veneers last?” Because veneers are a cosmetic dental service, they are not covered by insurance. While the cost varies based on patient need, it’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Keshwani to see how much veneers cost out of pocket.

Secondly, the lifespan of veneers is mainly dependent on the user, but many studies support that they can last for decades with proper care.

Reasons Why People Want Porcelain Veneers

Do you ever wonder why so many people are interested in porcelain veneers? Here are the top reasons why people request veneers (and see if one of these reasons resonates with you):

  • You want to improve the way your smile looks.
  • You want to hide discoloration or staining that doesn’t respond to teeth whitening.
  • You have chipped, worn-down, or broken teeth in your smile line.
  • You have gaps or minor alignment issues.

What to Expect During a Veneer Appointment

Porcelain veneers are considered a versatile, long-lasting cosmetic dental option. At Babcock Family Dental, Dr. Keshwani can upgrade your smile with veneers in a few visits.

  •  Step 1: At a brief consultation at our Babcock Rd office, Dr. Keshwani will listen to your dental goals and devise a plan to help you reach them.  
  •  Step 2: Before veneers are placed, Dr. Keshwani will meticulously shave off a very thin (about the thickness of a fingernail) layer of enamel from each tooth receiving a veneer. Etching the enamel helps the veneer feel and look less bulky as well as aid in the bonding process.
  • Step 3: After preparing the teeth, our cosmetic dentist artfully applies adhesive to the front of the teeth.
  • Step 4: Then, she cements the dental veneers to the front of each tooth.
