Patients who want to quickly improve their smile by making the teeth whiter and correcting the shape of their smile may be great candidates for natural porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are thin covers placed over the natural teeth to improve cosmetic flaws like chips, cracks, gaps, misalignment, and discoloration. For years now, porcelain veneers have improved significantly to look more natural and last longer. Now made from different types of materials and thicknesses, porcelain veneers are the preferred method for dental veneers. Dr. Ambriz custom crafts beautiful, natural porcelain veneers at his Dallas cosmetic dentistry practice, the Ambriz Center for Reconstructive & Cosmetic Dentistry in Dallas, TX. Schedule a consultation to learn more about natural porcelain and prepless veneers, as well as other cosmetic dental procedures by board-certified Dentist Dr. Albert Ambriz.
Natural Prepless Veneers
Some patients may be candidates for prepless veneers at the Ambriz Center for Reconstructive & Cosmetic Dentistry. Prepless (also known as no-prep) veneers are thinner than regular veneers so they can be applied without reshaping the existing tooth structure by removing enamel. This allows patients the option of removing their veneers in the future with their natural teeth still intact. Only a skilled cosmetic dentist can properly apply prepless veneers. As an experienced Master Dental Technician, Dr. Ambriz can match colors seamlessly, while ensuring the veneers don't break during the crafting process. Prepless veneers are a new option in Dallas and can provide extraordinary results when used properly on the right patient.

People who benefit from natural porcelain veneers may have several concerns about their smile, including:
- Aging teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Dental dark triangles
- Misaligned teeth
- Spaces or gaps between their teeth (diastema)
- Stained or discolored teeth
Dr. Ambriz is also able to help patients who want their old veneers removed or replaced using special tools for an easier process. Veneers don't usually require extensive shaping compared to dental crowns, while at the same time offering a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to composite bonding.
What to Expect
Once a patient has their unique natural veneers treatment plan, digital impressions are taken of the teeth and sent to the lab. Dr. Ambriz has all veneers custom made by a master ceramist in a Dallas dental laboratory. This ensures patients get high-quality veneers that look beautiful and last longer. Once the veneers are sent back to the office, the patient will schedule an appointment to have their veneers fitted, bonded, and shaped. Natural Veneers don't usually require extensive shaping compared to dental crowns, while at the same time offering a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to composite bonding.
After the veneers are applied to the teeth, patients may need some time to adjust to the feel of the veneers on their teeth. Any problems with appearance or comfort should be reported to Dr. Ambriz so he can adjust and shape the veneers as needed. While veneers are more resistant to stains than natural enamel, patients should still limit staining food and drinks while maintaining a good home oral care routine. Patients should schedule regular dental exams and cleanings to help their veneers last longer and remain healthy.
The cost of veneers varies depending on the materials used and the number of teeth covered. During the patient's consultation, Dr. Ambriz will develop a unique treatment plan based on the patient's goals and budget. Veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, so it is typically not covered by dental insurance, but Dr. Ambriz accepts many forms of payment. Also, our office can create payment plans or help patients find low-interest financing through CareCredit or Lending Club.
