Maybe you also have one tooth that is a little less than straight, or you might have a gap between two teeth. Perhaps you think your gums show too much when you smile. If any of these problems have made you embarrassed of the way your mouth looks, you’d likely love to find a way to feel more confident about your smile.

If you are considering aesthetic improvements and would like dramatic results, check with Dr. Barroso and Dr. Magers at Legacy Dental to see if veneers are the right choice for you.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells crafted from high-quality porcelain, designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. These custom-made veneers are bonded to your teeth, effectively transforming their appearance. They are a sought-after solution for various dental issues, offering a natural look and feel.

How can porcelain veneers help fix my smile?

Porcelain veneers can help with all of the issues listed above, and more. They can:

  • Mask teeth that are aged or discolored
  • Hide years of wear or severe stains
  • Close gaps between teeth that have shifted
  • Repair teeth that are crooked or worn
  • Adjust tooth shape or size
  • Fix a gummy smile

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers come with a multitude of benefits that go beyond just aesthetics. Dr. Barroso and Dr. Magers are experts in harnessing these advantages to give you the smile you’ve always desired. These benefits include:

  1. Exceptional Aesthetic Quality: Porcelain veneers provide an unparalleled natural tooth appearance. They mimic the light-reflecting properties and texture of natural teeth, ensuring your smile looks beautiful and authentic.
  2. Customized for Individual Needs: Every set of veneers is tailor-made to suit each patient’s unique needs. This individualized approach ensures that the veneers’ size, shape, color, and fit perfectly complement your facial features and aesthetic goals.
  3. Stain Resistance and Longevity: Porcelain is a non-porous material, making these veneers highly resistant to stain-causing substances like coffee, tea, and tobacco. This property, combined with its durability, means that your veneers can maintain their pristine appearance for many years, often a decade or more, with proper care.
  4. Enhanced Confidence and Self-Esteem: A bright, well-aligned smile can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem. Porcelain veneers can dramatically transform your smile, often leading to positive social and professional interactions.
  5. Minimally Invasive Procedure: The procedure to place porcelain veneers is minimally invasive. It typically involves the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel, far less than what’s required for crowns or other restorative procedures. This aspect makes it a conservative approach to achieving a dream smile.
  6. Strength and Functionality: Porcelain veneers are incredibly strong and durable despite their thinness. Once bonded to your teeth, they can restore and enhance the functionality of your teeth, allowing you to eat and speak with ease.
  7. Rapid Transformation and Instant Results: One of the most striking benefits of porcelain veneers is the immediacy of the transformation. Once your custom veneers are crafted and placed, you’ll walk out of Legacy Dental with a completely revitalized smile.
  8. Low Maintenance: Porcelain veneers are easy to take care of. They require the same care as natural teeth – regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are sufficient to maintain their appearance and longevity.
  9. Psychological Benefits: Aesthetically pleasing teeth have been linked to higher self-confidence and reduced anxiety in social situations. Porcelain veneers can significantly improve your overall mental well-being by enhancing your appearance and how you feel about your smile.

Choosing porcelain veneers at Legacy Dental in Burleson, TX, means investing in a long-term solution that enhances your smile and contributes positively to your overall quality of life.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Determining if you are an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers is a crucial step in your journey towards a transformed smile. Our Burleson cosmetic dentists, Dr. Barroso and Dr. Magers, carefully evaluate several factors to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you:

  1. Oral Health Status: The foundation for porcelain veneers is healthy teeth and gums. Candidates should be free from active dental decay and gum disease. Ensuring good oral health not only supports the longevity of the veneers but also contributes to the overall success of the treatment.
  2. Adequate Tooth Enamel: A key aspect of veneer placement involves bonding the veneer to the tooth’s enamel. Candidates must have sufficient enamel for successful adhesion and long-term stability of the veneers.
  3. Cosmetic Goals and Expectations: Porcelain veneers are perfect for individuals with specific aesthetic goals, such as improving tooth color, size, shape, or alignment. During the consultation, Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will discuss your expectations and how veneers can realistically achieve them.
  4. Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Long-term care is essential for maintaining the health and appearance of porcelain veneers. Candidates should be committed to regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups.
  5. Lifestyle Considerations: Factors like teeth grinding (bruxism) or participation in contact sports might impact the suitability of veneers. Protective measures like wearing a nightguard may be recommended for those with such lifestyle factors.
  6. Understanding of the Procedure: A well-informed patient is crucial for a successful outcome. Understanding the procedure, its benefits, and limitations ensures no surprises and helps set realistic expectations.
  7. Overall Health Conditions: General health conditions that affect dental treatment, such as certain autoimmune diseases or diabetes, need to be considered. Stable health conditions are preferable for candidates considering porcelain veneers.

Porcelain vs. Composite Veneers

When considering veneers, understanding the differences between porcelain and composite veneers is crucial. Both types have their unique benefits and limitations, and at Legacy Dental, Dr. Barroso and Dr. Magers can help you make an informed decision based on your specific needs and preferences.

Porcelain Veneers

  1. Material: Porcelain veneers are made from high-quality ceramic material, offering exceptional durability and a natural appearance.
  2. Aesthetics: They mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth and resist staining, maintaining their color over time.
  3. Durability: Porcelain veneers typically last longer than composite veneers, often up to 10-15 years with proper care.
  4. Preparation: The process requires the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel, making it a semi-permanent treatment.
  5. Cost: Generally, porcelain veneers are more expensive initially but can be cost-effective in the long run due to their longevity.

Composite Veneers

  1. Material: Made from a composite resin material, these veneers are more flexible and less expensive than porcelain.
  2. Application Process: Composite veneers can often be applied in one visit, as the material is sculpted directly onto the teeth.
  3. Adjustability and Repair: They can be easily adjusted or repaired if damaged, offering a level of convenience.
  4. Durability: Composite veneers have a shorter lifespan, typically 5-7 years, and may be more prone to staining and chipping compared to porcelain.
  5. Cost-Effectiveness: While less expensive upfront, composite veneers may require more frequent replacements or repairs.

The Procedure

Initial Consultation and Examination

Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will conduct a thorough dental examination, possibly including X-rays, to determine your suitability for veneers. They will discuss your aesthetic desires, address any concerns, and outline what you can expect from the procedure.

Custom Treatment Plan

Based on the initial consultation, a customized treatment plan is developed. This may involve taking digital impressions of your teeth using advanced imaging technology, which helps in designing veneers that perfectly fit your teeth and meet your aesthetic goals.

Tooth Preparation

A minimal amount of enamel, usually less than a millimeter, is removed from the front surface of each tooth to be veneered. This is essential for ensuring a seamless fit and natural look. Local anesthesia may be used to ensure comfort during this process.


After preparing the teeth, a mold or digital impression is taken. This impression is sent to a dental lab where your custom veneers are crafted. The process can take a few weeks, during which time temporary veneers may be placed to protect the prepared teeth.

Veneer Fabrication

Skilled dental technicians at the lab use the impressions to create veneers that match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, ensuring they blend seamlessly with your natural smile.

Fitting & Adjustments

Once the veneers are ready, you’ll return to Legacy Dental for a fitting. Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will temporarily place the veneers on your teeth to examine their fit and color, making any necessary adjustments to ensure they meet your expectations and look natural.


After ensuring a perfect fit, your teeth are cleaned, polished, and etched to prepare for bonding. A special adhesive is applied to the veneers, which are then precisely placed on your teeth. A special light is used to quickly harden the adhesive.

Final Adjustments

After the veneers are bonded, Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will make any final adjustments to ensure your bite is comfortable and the veneers feel natural. They will also provide advice on caring for your new veneers.
