Veneer Transformations & Reviews
“Great experience from start to finish.”
“Great staff from the front desk to dr. D’alfonso. I only got two teeth corrected with veneers and it made such a difference. I had a lot of questions and they were all answered enthusiastically and kindly. Also did the Whitening and a cleaning, all amazing. I’ll be honest I’m never a fan of the dentist but they made me super comfortable and communicated with me every step of the way. I’m excited about my new smile :) ”
“Would highly recommend!!”
“Dr. D'Alfonso and his entire staff are a real pleasure to work with. I received excellent care and attention for all of my visits for my recent work - everyone greets you like a friend, treats you like family, and shows they value your business. Dr. D'Alfonso called me on 2 separate Sunday afternoons to check on me, and to make sure I didn't have any pain - I've never had a dentist do that for me. This shows how much they care. The work I had done was exceptional. They take pride in doing a great job. Would highly recommend!! :)”

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin coverings designed to look and feel like real teeth. Veneers are textured and colored to fit the rest of the teeth in your mouth to appear as natural as possible. Enjoy the smile of your dreams while others are none the wiser with life-like porcelain veneers.
Veneers from Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry are long-lasting, and with the right aftercare, they can last up to 20 years. Porcelain veneers allow you to have a white, beautiful smile for years to come.
Just about any problem you have with your smile can be solved through porcelain veneers. From cracked and broken teeth to staining and more, porcelain veneers are a simple, all-in-one solution to cosmetic dentistry problems of all kinds.
What Is The Veneer Process?
To prepare the teeth for porcelain veneers, our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the teeth. This allows enough room for the veneers to look natural.
Once the teeth are prepared, your teeth will create a mold for the veneer so they are a perfect fit for your mouth. This is also when shading, shape, and textures will be matched with your natural teeth.
Mold Sent to Lab
After the mold has been created, it is sent to our dental lab to build veneers custom fit to your mouth. This process can take a few days, so we’ll provide you with temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.
On your next visit, your veneers will be custom fit to cover your real teeth and are shaped and colored if necessary. This ensures that your veneers will be comfortable and look natural for their entire lifespan.
Once the fit is right, we remove any temporary veneers and clean the teeth to prepare for bonding. We then use long-lasting adhesive to bond veneers to your real teeth so you can have the smile of your dreams for years to come.
After veneers are placed in your mouth, they don’t require much maintenance and can be treated like normal teeth. It may take a few days for you to get used to the feel of a full smile, but make sure to let the dentist know if your bite doesn’t feel right after they are placed so they can be corrected.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs
How Many Visits Does It Take To Finish The Veneer Process?
Your veneers are typically implanted within just 2 office visits.
Can Anybody Get Porcelain Veneers?
Eligibility for porcelain veneers depends on the severity of the issues with your teeth. Severe decay and cavities should be addressed before porcelain veneers are implanted.
How Do I Care For My Veneers?
Caring for veneers is very similar to caring for standard teeth. Brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing, and wearing a bite guard while sleeping for those that grind their teeth are great ways to protect veneers.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
How long veneers last depends on how you take care of your teeth. If you regularly brush, floss, and avoid bad teeth habits like chewing on foreign objects, you should have no problem having clean white veneers for up to 20 years.
What Kind Of Dental Issues Can Be Fixed With Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are an excellent choice for those with worn down, discolored, misaligned, spaced, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth. In most cases, porcelain veneers are reserved for the front teeth, or teeth that are visible while speaking, eating, laughing, and smiling.
How Many Veneers Do I Need To Fix My Teeth?
The dentists in the Austin area here at Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry will help you discover the right amount of dental veneers based on the status of your teeth. In most cases, we’ll recommend an even number of veneers. Veneers are typically implemented in a quantity of between two and twelve.
What Is The Cost Of Porcelain Veneers In The Austin Area?
The cost of dental veneers varies widely from person to person. Several factors can change the cost of porcelain veneers, from dental health conditions to the number of veneers an individual may need. You can learn more about the cost of dental veneers in Austin, TX in the Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry blog.
Will Veneers Look Unnatural Against The Rest Of My Normal Teeth?
The dentists here at Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry will work to color-match your new veneers with the rest of your teeth so they don’t look jarring or unnatural in your mouth. We aim to make your new smile look as natural as possible, which usually does involve some degree of staining the veneers. Of course, you can get your teeth whitened before your veneers are installed so they will require less staining to match the rest of your mouth.
What Foods Can I Eat After I Get My New Veneers?
Most foods can be eaten with new veneers, but each patient has a different bite. Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry recommends that you eat soft foods for the first few days after your new veneers are installed so you can get used to your bite. There are usually no limitations after a few weeks once you’ve gotten used to your bite. In general, you should avoid things like apples, nuts, seeds, popcorn, and ice for a few days after you get your new veneers installed.
