What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front of flawed teeth. One of our most versatile treatments, porcelain veneers may be suggested to:


  • Repair very worn teeth
  • Fix broken or chipped teeth
  • Improve crooked or uneven teeth
  • Close gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Repair irregularly shaped teeth


We can match the porcelain veneer to you exact tooth color, or we can whiten your smile by using many veneers that are multiple shades lighter than your natural tooth color.


How are porcelain veneers applied?

Applying porcelain veneers requires a high degree of technical skill and attention to cosmetic detail. Our dentist, Dr. Kirk E. Kooker, holds these qualities and designs cases individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile. Your teeth are first prepared through a light etching and buffing process to accommodate the thickness of veneer. After any final adjustments have been made to your custom-made porcelain veneers in Plano, Texas, we will bond them to the front of your teeth. If you are struggling with embarrassing cosmetic dental flaws, we encourage you to call our dental office and schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Kirk E. Kooker today. We look forward to helping you achieve your new smile!
