When teeth are cracked, stained, crooked or uneven, porcelain veneers can resolve aesthetic issues and give you the smile of your dreams. Veneers are ideal for those with otherwise healthy teeth who simply want a straighter, whiter smile.

There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth, or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Custom porcelain veneers created by our dental office in Kerrville can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury, and give you the smile you deserve.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials (normally porcelain) which are designed to cover the front side of teeth. Usually they are created by a technician in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist. At our practice, we can create them while you wait using our CEREC unit which uses 3D software to manufacture perfectly customized veneers, crowns, and other restorations.
Dr. Butler will prepare your teeth for application by removing a microscopically thin layer of tooth enamel. The tooth surfaces will be slightly roughened to allow the bonding material to make a strong bond. The veneers will be applied and the bonding resin allowed to cure.
If properly cared for, veneers can last for many years. Occasionally they will chip or fracture, but Dr. Butler will be able to make repairs if needed and restore your smile. Coffee, tea, or red wine can stain, so you may wish to avoid such beverages after you have veneers applied. Make sure to still practice good at-home oral hygiene and keep your biannual appointments for cleanings and exams.
