This dental procedure is one of the fastest and easiest ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile at Miner Dental in San Antonio, TX. Since your smile is a central feature of your face, think of it as a low-risk, non-invasive way to enhance your entire look.

Makeover your smile and look with quality porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are indeed a great way to correct many common cosmetic dental imperfections. These common complaints include:

  • Gaps between the front teeth
  • Other minor spacing issues
  • Worn-down or overly short teeth
  • Irregularly-shaped teeth
  • Stubborn discoloration
  • Chipped teeth
  • Modest fractures

Dental bonding is a procedure that also corrects the imperfections listed above. However, veneers generally involve using dental ceramics such as porcelain. Dental porcelain effectively resists stains and is also known as a natural-looking replacement for damaged or eroded tooth enamel. Porcelain even reflects light similarly to natural enamel. Bonding, while generally more affordable upfront, is not as resilient or durable as dental porcelain. It also does not have the stain-resistant and natural properties that are associated with porcelain. 

We look forward to discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure and alternatives that may be more suitable for you; for instance, if you have more severe misalignment or bite problems, we may recommend treatments like cosmetic Invisalign braces.

The process

Veneers are made with quality porcelain and are placed and bonded or fixed securely to the front surfaces of the teeth to disguise any imperfections. To accomplish this, your dentist will first prepare the natural teeth and prepare the veneer itself. At Miner Dental, we use various technologies to assure our patients’ utmost comfort, convenience, and satisfaction. For starters, we place ultra-thin veneers. A little of the natural enamel is removed to accommodate the veneers placed on top of the tooth. Since the tooth is minimally altered, an anesthetic may not be necessary.

Porcelain Veneers is a simple yet effective procedure that gives you a perfect smile. Experience sophisticated and professional dentistry that also balances warm, friendly care.
