Getting to know Porcelain Veneers
Before we dive into the benefits of porcelain veneers over other options, it is important to know what they are. Porcelain veneers are essentially thin, porcelain-composite material shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain is great option because it looks more like your natural teeth than any other option. Here is a small account of the numerous benefits to porcelain veneers:
- Durable material
- Mimics tooth enamel
- Does not decay
- Does not stain or yellow
- Custom made for you
The professional staff here at Dallas Cosmetic Dental ensures the quality of practice and patient satisfaction by being up-to-date on the latest cosmetic dental technology has to offer.

MAC Veneers are made by MicroDental Labs, which are the world’s largest and advanced cosmetic dental lab. MAC Veneers are twice as strong as other veneers and can last a lifetime.
In the initial consultation, you and Dr. Alhadef will discuss the problem you have with your smile, your goals and the various veneer options available to ensure that porcelain veneers are right for you.
During the second visit, you will begin the preparation process, which involves the removal of a small portion of tooth enamel imperative to securing the veneer. The goal is to have the veneers appear seamlessly and look as natural as possible.
After preparation, a mold will be taken of your teeth and sent to a lab that will, with specific instruction and knowledge of your needs, create the veneer. The time between molding your bite and receiving the completed veneer will take time, so you will be provided with a temporary set.
Once the veneers come back from the lab, the last step in the process is the final fitting. The veneers will be bonded to the teeth using a special hardening composite glue-like material to ensure stability of the veneer against your teeth. Once hardened with a special LED light, you are sent on your way with a gorgeous, natural-looking smile.
