High-Quality Porcelain Veneers
in Bentonville, AR

One of the most common materials for dental veneers is porcelain. Our team can color match the patient’s veneers to match their existing teeth before permanently bonding these layers with each tooth. In other cases, patients want to brighten the color of all of their front teeth, in which case we can work with the individual to determine their ideal tooth color. The result is a better, cosmetically-enhanced smile that can last from five to fifteen years with proper oral hygiene.

Benefits of Veneers

Typically, veneers improve your tooth structure. Whether or not veneers are a good choice for you depends on the condition of your teeth and your preferred budget. Insurance companies don’t always cover veneers, as they often consider them a cosmetic service, not a medical necessity.

Common issues that you can solve with dental veneers include:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Discoloration that teeth whitening cannot fix
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Pointed or odd-shaped teeth
  • Unusually small teeth

Preparing for Porcelain Veneers

There are two methods for fitting porcelain veneers, and traditional veneers typically cost a bit more. There is also more preparation involved with the traditional method, whereas the alternative requires only minimal alterations.

Traditional Veneers

Traditional porcelain veneers grind down the tooth, sometimes through the enamel and into the dentin, for a stronger fit. The process is more invasive and irreversible, with longer times at the dentist and higher costs, as you may need a local anesthetic. You will also need temporary veneers to protect your exposed teeth while waiting for your permanent veneers

Alternative Veneers

The other type of veneer requires no preparation, which is why we refer to them as “no-prep veneers.” Traditional tooth veneers alter your teeth, but this option requires less preparation before we can cast the mold. It is a cheaper and quicker process, but the veneers usually only last for five to ten years with proper care; traditional veneers will often last ten to fifteen years when cared for properly.

Preparation for Veneers in Bentonville, AR

The manufacturing time for veneers is typically one to two weeks. During your second appointment, your dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth to prevent bacteria from forming underneath the veneers and causing decay. Then, our team roughens the surface of the teeth and allows the cement to create a stronger hold. Once your veneers are in place, ultraviolet light hardens the cement quickly.
