Porcelain Veneers

Austin Westlake Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes, even the best dental procedures cannot fix what’s naturally in your mouth, and it is better to start from scratch. If you want to fully renew your smile without relying on dentures, dental veneers might be the solution you are looking for. Once installed, veneers will fill your mouth with gleaming white, perfectly straight teeth that look so real no one will look twice.

Veneers might be the secret for regaining confidence in your smile.

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers are designed to look and act just like your regular teeth, all while gaining support from your natural tooth. These porcelain or resin teeth covers are thin, custom-made shells that fit exactly over your natural teeth for a seamless look. Once in place, veneers are a permanent fixture in your mouth and should last for decades without any damage.

Veneers are used to cover cracks, chips, gaps, stains and other imperfections in your natural teeth to give you a movie-star smile instead. We offer the highest quality veneers at AustinDentalCare and promise our procedure will give you the best smile possible.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?

There are many benefits for choosing veneers over other dental care strategies. Veneers provide:

  • A more natural tooth appearance
  • An easier adjustment for gum tissue than invasive implants
  • Easy color matching for your regular teeth
  • Stain-resistant surfaces that stay bright white
  • Strong, aesthetic alternative to traditional crowns

What’s Involved with Getting Veneers?

Getting permanent veneers for your teeth is a multistep process to ensure the perfect fit. All the veneers we use at Austin Dental Care are custom-made to fit your exact specifications, and they are thoroughly tested before we put them in your mouth.

Getting dental veneers requires three dental appointments: one for a consultation, and two to make and place the veneers.

Our dental team will meet with you to learn exactly what results you want to achieve. We will look through your x-rays to determine what teeth are best candidates for veneers, and make a treatment plan for your next appointment.

During the first treatment phase, our dental team will remove a thin layer of enamel from the existing tooth to ensure the veneer will fit. Imprints are then made of these teeth, which are sent to a lab to create your custom veneers. Since this usually takes several weeks, we will insert temporary veneers for you to wear in the meantime.

For your final appointment, we ensure that the veneers are the perfect fit before placing them. Dental adhesive is then used to permanently stick each one in place, giving you a stunningly straight smile in seconds.

Maintaining Your Veneers

Our professional-grade veneers can last a lifetime with proper care, but problems can occur if you do not take the post-treatment process seriously. Make sure you treat them as you would your natural teeth, and carefully floss and brush them every day. Non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste is usually best, but your particular needs might be different. If you have a habit of biting or clenching your mouth, our team might recommend a mouth guard at night.

Treat your veneers gently, and they will give you a gleaming smile for years to come.

I met Dr. Wainwright in 2002 when I had to do major dental work and was extremely afraid of dentists from previous experiences.  Everyone at Dr. Wainwright's office was so kind and welcoming from the beginning. He offers sedation dentistry which is what brought me in.  He was able to undo and repair years worth of work in a few sessions with sedation dentistry.  The best part is you come to without the knowledge of all the procedure you just went through.Because of my great experience with him so long ago, I've maintained regular maintenance and have Kristi, my personal hygienist, to thank for that.  She is the best and I always enjoy my cleaning with her.  I've had a few normal issues throughout the years since my major dental work and they were always detected so early and taken care of so fast that they never became an issue.I'm so glad I came across Dr. Wainwright so long ago.  I love to tell people how much I love my dentist and see their unbelieving faces...but I do!  The whole team is amazing.

Dr. Wainwright and his staff are wonderful, caring, happy people! Over the past 2 years, I’ve had a few procedures done and have been comfortable and happy every time. Dr. Wainwright has had to replace faulty work done by my previous dentist, making me wish I found Austin Dental Care so much sooner! I love the laid-back, friendly staff who always take the time to make sure the patient is comfortable and at ease. Couldn’t recommend this office more highly.

I have had major dental needs over the past two years and I couldn't have been luckier to find Dr. Wainwright and his staff! They are so accommodating, friendly and professional. With all of the work I have had done on my teeth over the years, I can sincerely say I have never had a better experience in my life for dental care. From the ladies at reception to the ladies in the back helping and up to Dr. Wainwright, this is a top-notch operation and I am blessed to have found them!

Dr. Wainwright's office is immaculate and very warm and inviting. His staff was also cheerful, friendly and helpful. He spent a lot of time explaining his approach to treatment and dental care to my son (and to me as well). He asked my son if he had any questions about our treatment plan and talked to him in a kind and direct manner. Dr. Wainwright is also very knowledgeable re: advancements in dental care procedures and techniques which is helpful as it gives my son (and our family) various treatment options. His staff was informative and clear about fees associated w/ treatment and let us know up front how much our treatment would cost. My kids were surprised with a little treat on the way out of the office which they LOVED.

Glen Wainwright and his staff are highly competent professionals. Relaxing and always immaculately clean office environment. Glen is thorough in his assessments. He always values my feedback, as it is an essential aspect to ensuring positive experiences and outcomes. I can't enough about the staff hygienists! Kristy, takes care of my regular cleanings. She is consistently methodical in her cleaning process. Her personality is gentle and compassionate. Her experiential knowledge of her craft, and concern for the well-being of my dental health is always on display.
