Can I Get One Veneer or Do I Need a Full Set?

Whether your teeth are short, damaged, translucent, or otherwise not what you want them to look like, porcelain veneers can treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns to create the beautiful, bright smile you desire. If you are considering veneers, you may be wondering how many you will need. Some patients may only have one or two teeth they want to enhance; whereas others may want a full smile makeover. While you can get a single veneer to address one tooth, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Mark Sweeney, recommends patients get a full set of porcelain veneers to achieve the most aesthetic smile appearance.

Dental veneers can be tailored to the size and color of the surrounding teeth, but they may still look slightly different. If you are getting veneers on your front teeth, this can be even more noticeable. For those considering getting veneers, Dr. Sweeney believes covering as many of the visible teeth as possible will create the most flawless-looking smile. This ultimately comes down to the specific needs and preferences of the individual, but with a full set of porcelain veneers, patients’ smiles can look the most uniform in color, shape, and size.

Before committing to your veneers treatment, our dentists at Austin Dental Spa utilize computer imaging to show you what your final results may look like. This can help you visualize what to expect from your procedure and whether you’d like any adjustments made to your treatment plan.
