With porcelain veneers in Little Rock, your cosmetic dentist can completely transform the appearance of one or more of your teeth. These ultra-thin tooth-shaped shells can be bonded to the front of a tooth to completely transform its appearance. Each one is custom-made from beautiful dental porcelain for incredibly lifelike and dazzling results. Porcelain veneers are commonly used to correct issues like:
Enhancing your smile with porcelain veneers typically only takes two quick and easy appointments. After you and your cosmetic dentist have decided that porcelain veneers are the best choice for you, your teeth will need to be prepared. This involves removing a thin layer of enamel about the size of a contact lens from the front of your teeth. Then, we’ll take impressions of the area and send them to a dental laboratory, where they’ll be used to create your custom-made veneers.
Before you leave, we’ll fit you with temporary veneers to keep your teeth safe and comfortable until your next appointment. Before you know it, you’ll be returning to our office for your second appointment. The temporary shells will be removed and your beautiful permanent veneers will be bonded into place. We’ll check to make sure your bite is comfortable, then you’ll be ready to show off your brand-new smile to the world!
Previously, porcelain veneers were only used to improve smiles meant for the silver screen. Nowadays however, while they’re still a popular choice among celebrities like Morgan Freeman and Miley Cyrus, nearly anyone can get porcelain veneers! You may be a good candidate if:

If you’re looking for the best way to erase chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections from your smile, look no further than porcelain veneers in Little Rock! We’ll go over every step of your treatment and address your concerns during your initial consultation. In the meantime, we invite you to look over the following frequently asked questions to learn more about porcelain veneers. If you don’t see the answers you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
Porcelain veneers don’t get discolored or develop cavities like natural teeth, but that doesn’t mean you can slack off on your oral hygiene! Remember, veneers only cover the front surface of your tooth. It’s essential that you keep the teeth under your veneers (as well as the rest of your smile) healthy if you want your porcelain veneers to last. Thankfully, that’s a simple task! Make sure to brush for two minutes twice a day, use high-quality waxed dental floss, and rinse regularly with non-alcoholic mouthwash to keep your new smile strong and sparkling.
At Little Rock Family Dental Care, we don’t believe in cookie-cutter cosmetic dentistry. Your cosmetic treatment will be 100% personalized for your unique smile goals. Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution for a variety of dental flaws and can be used to conceal one or several imperfections at once. While this means you can choose to get a single veneer, we typically recommend getting them in pairs. We find that getting porcelain veneers on the front two, four, six, or eight teeth tends to offer the most seamless results.
When considering porcelain veneers, it’s important that you keep in mind that the process cannot be reversed. Placing porcelain veneers requires the removal of a very thin layer of enamel. Since enamel doesn’t naturally grow back, your prepared teeth will always need to be covered with veneers in order to protect them from damage and decay. Thankfully, the dental porcelain used to create veneers is reliably durable and even resistant to chipping, so you can easily expect to enjoy your porcelain veneers for 15 years or more with the proper care.
Unfortunately, most dental insurance companies don’t cover the cost of cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers. However, every policy has different rules and restrictions. Feel free to bring your insurance policy paperwork in with you to your consultation and we’ll review its details with you. Our talented team has years of experience helping our patients maximize their benefits and minimize their out-of-pocket expenses.
We’re also pleased to offer third-party financing options through CareCredit. This would allow you to break up the cost of your treatment into easy payments that fit into your monthly budget. During your consultation, we’ll go over your personal estimate for the cost of your treatment as well as all your options for making your treatment as affordable as possible.
You don’t have to live with dental imperfections if you don’t want to! Give us a call today to schedule your consultation for porcelain veneers and make your dream smile a reality.
