What Are Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are attached to the front surfaces of flawed teeth. When in place, a veneer conceals different kinds of dental imperfections from view. The natural-looking porcelain material looks virtually indistinguishable from natural dental tissue.
Different porcelain materials can be used to create a veneer. At Dowell Dental Group, we prefer IPS e.max® and IPS Empress® Esthetic. These durable materials are both lithium disilicate glass-ceramics. They are far stronger than the resin used for dental bonding, resulting in a longer-lasting upgrade that looks incredible.
We also offer LUMINEERS® and Vivaneers™, two options that require little or no tooth alteration.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The cost of porcelain veneers can vary based on the type of veneer used and the amount of dental work a patient needs. When you visit our offices in Minerva, Carrollton, or Dover, we can provide a personalized price quote for your treatment needs. We can also discuss financing options that make veneers affordable on virtually any budget.
Candidates for Veneers
The best candidates for porcelain veneers have:
Flawed Front Teeth
Porcelain veneers can only be placed on the front teeth, so candidates should only have issues affecting the most prominent parts of their smile.
Minor Aesthetic Imperfections
Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry option. If a fracture affects the structural strength of a tooth, a crown may be a more suitable solution.
Good Dental Health
Porcelain veneer patients should be in good overall oral health, and not currently experiencing tooth decay, gum disease, or other issues.
Less than a millimeter of tooth enamel needs to be removed to place most types of veneers. We also offer minimal-prep and no-prep options that can accommodate patients who lack enough enamel for traditional veneers.
Are Dental Veneers Right for Me? Schedule a Consultation Today
Porcelain veneers may be just what you need to start smiling with confidence. If you have cosmetic issues affecting your smile, our dentists can help.

State-of-the-Art Patient-Centered Dentistry
I've had a dental phobia for years and years. LOVE Dr. Dowell and all of his staff. Just had a root canal done at the Carrollton office, and I don't use numbing. I have to say it was "a piece of cake". No pain or down time afterwards either. Linda S. P.
