Cosmetic dental flaws like chips, cracks, and stains can make you hesitate to share your smile with the world.
Thankfully, veneers can conceal a variety of aesthetic dental issues and restore your ability to smile with confidence.
Patients come to Bonner Family Dentistry in Dumas, TX, for veneers because of our elite care and focus on the patient experience.
What Exactly Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are permanently attached to the front surfaces of natural teeth. They can mask a vast spectrum of cosmetic concerns. These include teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, misshapen, misaligned, overcrowded, or slightly gapped.
What Are Dental Veneers Made Of?
Our veneers are typically made out of high-grade porcelain. We prefer using porcelain for dental veneers because it is an immensely powerful material. Porcelain is very durable and extremely stain-resistant.
Porcelain veneers can also be fashioned to appear just like natural teeth. Depending on your unique needs, we may craft your veneers out of porcelain or other trusted materials.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Dental Veneers
Is It Painful to Receive Dental Veneers?
No. Most patients only need local anesthesia during their porcelain veneers procedure. Regardless, our dentists are prepared to offer sedation to calm anxiety and numb pain. We can provide nitrous oxide to induce a more relaxed state or oral conscious sedation to induce near-sleep during treatment.
Do Dental Veneers Require Extensive Recovery?
No. You can go home directly after receiving porcelain veneers. Depending on whether you receive sedation, you may need someone to drive you. Once the sedative wears off, you can eat, talk, and live just like always. Some patients experience short-term sensitivity to hot or cold food or beverages after receiving veneers. This can be treated with an over-the-counter medication recommended by our dentists.
Are Porcelain Veneers Long-Lasting?
Yes. Porcelain veneers have a typical lifespan of around 10–15 years. They can even last for 20 years with optimal care. This is an incredible return on investment for a relatively straightforward dental procedure. Your veneers must eventually be replaced, however, and we can help you refresh your smile when the time comes.

Looking for Another Solution? Crowns Can Be an Excellent Alternative
Our Dumas, TX, dentists are known for comprehensive dentistry. We offer a host of services and will recommend what is best for you.
If you only have surface-level cosmetic issues to address, veneers should be more than sufficient. However, extensively damaged or decayed teeth may benefit more from dental crowns. A dental crown, unlike a veneer, covers the entirety of a tooth. It provides invaluable protection to a tooth while improving shape and even color.
A crown is considered a restorative treatment, meaning it is typically covered by insurance. However, it wouldn't be covered if the crown is placed for purely cosmetic reasons. Crown placement is similar to veneer placement, and you can expect long-lasting results from them as well.
