What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are super-thin sheaths of dental ceramic that rest on top of existing teeth. Porcelain is ideal not just for covering up multiple imperfections in teeth, but maintaining durability for many years to come. Each veneer is custom-made to precisely fit over existing teeth, allowing for the most natural appearance possible. If you’re looking for a truly comprehensive approach for cosmetic improvements to your smile, there are few treatments as effective as porcelain veneers.
What is the Treatment Process?
The first step of treatment is scheduling a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Hegazin. He’ll examine your teeth and make sure you have proper oral health before going through with treatment. He’ll also listen to your smile goals to ensure he gives you exactly what you’re looking for in your smile.
After confirming your eligibility for veneers, he’ll begin the process of buffing down your enamel so that the veneers have room to sit flush. Then, they’ll take an impression of your teeth and use that model to fabricate your permanent veneers. During this time, you’ll wear a set of temporary veneers to help you get used to your new smile.
Once the veneers are created (after about two weeks), you’ll come back to have your permanent veneers fitted. During the fitting, Dr. Hegazin will make sure that you’re happy with your new smile and perform any necessary adjustments.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
Porcelain veneers are the on the cutting edge when it comes to making your smile look flawless. If you were considering other cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, direct bonding or crown lengthening, you likely won’t need to pursue any of them if you’re already set on pursuing veneers.
Furthermore, porcelain is a naturally stain-resistant material that is more effective at withstanding richly pigmentated foods when compared to natural tooth enamel. Natural enamel contains many cracks and crevices for stains to seep into, while porcelain is very smooth and contains no cracks. Just make sure to practice regular at-home care and never use your teeth as a tool to avoid damaging them.
With porcelain veneers, you can say goodbye to:
- Permanent discoloration
- Cracks and chips
- Small gaps
- Gummy smiles
- Malformed or misshapen teeth

Who Is a Good Candidate for Veneers?
Do you struggle with permanent discoloration? Are one or more chipped teeth stopping you from smiling confidently? Do you look in the mirror and wish there was a way to completely transform the appearance of your teeth? Then you may be a good candidate for veneers! To ensure you are eligible, our cosmetic dentist in McKinney, Dr. Hegazin, will complete a comprehensive oral exam at your initial consultation. If your teeth and gums are in good condition, then he will create your custom treatment plan. If they aren’t, the appropriate treatment will be administered beforehand.
How Long Do Veneers Typically Last?
One of the amazing benefits of opting for veneers is that they can last 15+ years with proper care. To prolong their lifespan while simultaneously keeping your oral health in tip-top shape, make sure to brush twice a day, floss daily, and use mouthwash regularly. Cutting back on sugar, quitting poor dental habits, and visiting our office every six months for a checkup and cleaning are also important!
How Do I Get My Veneers to Match My Other Teeth?
The last thing you want is for your enhanced teeth to stick out like a sore thumb next to your natural ones. To ensure this doesn’t happen, Dr. Hegazin will meticulously match the porcelain to your current shade of enamel, guaranteeing a flawless finish. If discoloration is one of your concerns, then a brighter shade of porcelain will be used and your other teeth can be whitened with a professional teeth whitening treatment. Either way, the end result will be seamless, natural-looking, and beautiful.
Does Getting Veneers Hurt?
If potential discomfort is what is holding you back from achieving your smile goals, you can have peace of mind knowing our team goes above and beyond to make the entire process pain-free.

Plus, following your aftercare instructions, like sticking to soft foods, can avoid irritation and keep you comfortable.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
Since each person’s dental needs and smile goals are unique, the final cost depends on a variety of factors. Do you need restorative treatment beforehand? How many veneers are being placed? These are just a few of the answers our team will determine at your consultation. That way, we can provide you with the exact cost of perfecting your smile. Plus, we can go over each financial option available to ensure you get the quality dental care you deserve without breaking the bank!
