Achieve A Natural, Beautiful Smile
Porcelain Veneers can help you achieve a beautiful, natural looking smile. Our San Antonio dentists often recommend veneers for patients with teeth gaps, stains or chips. We use the highest quality products and labs that allow us to recreate natural, cosmetic results. Our dental technology allows us to match your natural tooth’s appearance for a veneer that is almost impossible to tell apart from your other teeth and strong enough to last for 7 – 20 years.
There are several benefits to porcelain veneers, including:
- Longevity and strength
- Improved smile appearance
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Natural tooth appearance
- Protect the surface of damaged teeth
The Process of Porcelain Veneers
After your Wurzbach Parkway Family Dental dentist examines your teeth in the cosmetic dental San Antonio office, to see if you are a good candidate for veneers you will then be scheduled for your first appointment and on your way to a beautiful new smile.
Our highly trained laboratory technicians will create a tooth colored wax-up of your new teeth, which allow you to see how your teeth will appear in your mouth.
Your dentist will prepare your teeth and you will wear temporaries while your beautiful new teeth are being fabricated.
An impression of the tooth is made and sent to our highly experienced dental laboratory technicians. Rest assured we use the highest quality materials and experienced lab technicians to create natural, esthetically pleasing veneers.
At the last visit we will try in your veneers to make sure you are happy with the shape and color. Once you approve the look, they are cemented and a special light beam is applied to allow the cement to quickly harden. Then excess cement is removed and then they polished. You can then return to our office to care for your Veneers in San Antonio.
Understand the Possible Risks of Porcelain Veneers

- Teeth may become slightly sensitive for a week or so after the procedure
- Porcelain Veneers may need to be replaced at some point

They can last from 7-20 years. The tooth and the gum tissue may change, which may affect the veneer.
They are smoother and more glass-like. Some experience cold sensitivity for a few days, but they should eventually feel like just another natural part of the tooth.
Dentists advise eating softer foods until the patient gets used to the new bite. After several weeks there is no limitation, unless the individual has specific needs.
This is very rare. Don’t panic, and try to save the veneer since it can usually be placed on the tooth again within minutes. Call the office, and we will try schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
As you might expect every patient is different. Depending on your insurance provider you may have minimal out of pocket expenses. However many insurance providers do not cover the cost. Please contact us for a consultation.
