What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are affixed to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers are custom-made to elevate your natural smile by covering any of your teeth’s cosmetic flaws, offering you years of durable function and beauty. Whether it’s masking a single tooth or your complete smile, porcelain veneers can help you regain your confidence and give you a camera-ready appearance.
Porcelain veneers are a safe, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that can resolve a variety of cosmetic issues for our patients. At Berchelmann Family Dental, you can get a smile that’ll turn heads and make you stand out in any social situation.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can offer your smile several benefits that other procedures can’t match, including:
- Non-invasive and completed in two appointments
- Customized to match your natural smile
- Personalized treatment plan
- Improving tooth function and stain-resistant
- Can last up to 15 years
Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can correct a number of cosmetic imperfections. If you struggle with any of the following dental issues, you may be an ideal candidate:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Gaps in-between teeth or spacing issues
- Teeth that are too long or too short
- Asymmetrical teeth
- Teeth that are irregular in shape
It’s important to take good care of your teeth and make sure you have no active oral health issues in order to ensure that placement of your porcelain veneers is successful.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
We can customize your porcelain veneers and apply them to your smile in just two quick appointments.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Berchelmann will inspect your oral health and determine if you’re an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers. This includes taking digital images of your teeth to ensure that your veneers will fit comfortably in your mouth. Next, our staff will craft porcelain shells that perfectly match the color of your teeth and look completely natural.
At your next appointment, Dr. Berchelmann and our professional dental team will insert your custom porcelain veneers. We’ll begin the procedure by removing some of your existing enamel so that the shells don’t extend past your natural teeth. Then, with a special dental-grade adhesive, Dr. Berchelmann will permanently affix the veneers onto your teeth.
After the procedure is complete, you’ll be able to leave our office and immediately show off your new teeth to your family and friends.
Taking Care of Your New Veneers
With the proper care, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or more. Fortunately, maintaining your veneers is straightforward and similar to how you would clean your natural teeth. This includes having a proper oral hygiene regimen, such as brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals. Make sure to use a non-abrasive toothbrush and rinse with a mouthwash that’s alcohol-free.
Dr. Berchelmenn also recommends visiting our San Antonio, TX office for biannual check ups so that we can monitor your oral health and the state of your veneers.

Veneers will cover the appearance of your crooked teeth, but can’t be used to permanently straighten them. Treatments such as Invisalign and traditional metal braces can be used to alter the structure of your teeth. During your initial consultation, Dr. Berchelmann will be able to determine whether your crooked teeth can be covered by porcelain veneers.
