Veneer Before & After Gallery


Having a radiant and perfect smile is like a smile-makeover. One can feel more confident and set their best ‘foot’ forward when greeting people. A very natural radiant smile can dramatically improve one’s confidence. Having beautiful teeth that are straight is like having a new smile that can make a person look younger and healthier. A big boost in your self-confidence.

We offer a complimentary first-time visit to our Austin Cosmetic office in downtown Austin. Dr. Tejas Patel will work closely with you to determine if Veneer treatment is the right choice for you. Not all patients are good candidates for veneers. There are many options to achieve the same goal – to have a radiant smile. The process in Veneers is the tooth enamel must be removed in order to apply the sculpted veneer to your tooth. This treatment cannot be reversed. Veneers can be a great option for some patients, but not all. If you clench or grind your teeth, we will recommend other options because it can cause them to chip and break.

On your complimentary first time visit, Dr. Tejas Patel, DDS, could possibly recommend other options if your teeth are unhealthy. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, we would probably recommend either treat these issues or recommend a different solution entirely. How Veneers are applied is our team will remove all plaque from the teeth first. This would include tartar prior to the application of your new veneers.

What are veneers made of:

They are made of either a composite resin or porcelain. Our Austin dental practice will assess the desired changes you wish to make with your teeth to determine the best type of treatment for you.

Veneers are perfect when you have:

  • Gaps betwen your teeth
  • Short teeth or a Gummy smile
  • Uneven gum line
  • Old metal fillings
  • Misaligned or uneven teeth
  • Discolored teeth that can’t be whitened
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth

Porcelain Veneers:

  • Don’t stain as easily
  • Strong
  • Natural-looking surface
  • Less enamel loss than with bonding or crowns

    Frequent Questions about Veneers

    Do veneers ruin your teeth?

    Porcelain veneers are used to enhance your teeth. They can be used to improve the color, size, shape and position of the teeth. In most cases there has to be some tooth structure removal during the porcelain veneer process. This can be minimized by going to a Cosmetic Dentist with extensive experience.

    How much do veneers cost?

    Porcelain veneers cost anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 and up per tooth or per porcelain veneer. Most offices work with third party financing companies to set up monthly payments. Since veneers are a cosmetic procedure, there is not usually any insurance benefits towards veneers.

    Are Porcelain veneers permanent?

    Yes, porcelain veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth. Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or longer if maintained well.

    Are Lumineers cheaper than veneers?

    Lumineers maybe slightly less expensive, but Lumineers will not last as long as a traditional porcelain veneer. Lumineers will likely have to be replaced sooner than a traditional porcelain veneer.

    What can you not eat with porcelain veneers?

    Once the veneer process is completed, you can eat and chew the foods you normally eat without any issues. There are things that you should avoid with your teeth in general that we recommend not doing with your veneers, like opening packages with your front teeth, biting on pen caps, or biting your fingernails.

    Do you have to shave your teeth for veneers?

    In most cases yes we do have to do some shaving of the teeth for veneers. However, materials and techniques are improving where veneers can be made thinner so there is less tooth structure that has to be removed. Also, in many cases we can do very minimal preparation or removal of tooth structure.

    Do Veneers last forever?

    Well made and properly done porcelain veneers should last 15 years or longer.

    Can veneers fix crooked teeth?

    Yes, but it depends on how crooked or misaligned the teeth are. If there is severe crowding and the teeth are very crooked, then it is best to consider straightening the teeth before the veneer process. Learn more about Instant Orthodontics in Austin, TX

    What is the pain level involved in porcelain veneers?

    There is virtually little to no downtime for the porcelain veneer process. It’s like getting dental filling or a dental crown done. Most patients return to work after the procedure or the next day. The pain level is minimal as well. With over the counter pain relievers like Tylenol or Advil, most post op pain issues can be managed.

    Do porcelain veneers break easily?

    When porcelain veneers are made well and done properly it is rare for them to break easily. There are many factors that go into making them well and doing them properly. Factors that are considered are: does the patient grind their teeth heavily or have a poor bite alignment, does the patient had any habits that will put the teeth or veneers under too much stress or pressure? These issues can be overcome through the design of the veneer and the material of the veneer that is chosen by the Cosmetic Dentist.

    Do veneers make your breath smell?

    Veneers that are done well and contoured like natural teeth should not make your breath smell. Just like your natural teeth, veneers will have to be cleaned regularly by brushing at least twice and day and flossing daily. Also, getting professional dental cleanings twice a year will help keep up with your oral health.

    Why are veneers so expensive?

    Veneers are priced the way they are because they are hand crafted and customized. Each veneer is designed and made and refined by a Ceramist. Veneers should be tailored to the individual and their smile and facial characteristics. Just like a fine piece of jewelry, there is a great amount of detail and craftsmanship that goes into a porcelain veneer.
