Veneers Can Improve Your Smile and Your Self-Confidence 

Lifelike Materials

Dr. Ip only uses top-quality porcelain to create dental veneers for his patients. This material is expertly customized to blend in with your surrounding teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile upgrade. The dental veneers also mimic the shine and texture of natural teeth.

A Versatile and Comprehensive Solution

While other cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening are designed to address a single issue, veneers can conceal stains, minor cases of misalignment, and chips or cracks all at once

Long-Lasting Results

Porcelain veneers have several benefits over other procedures, which make them a worthwhile investment. They are stain-resistant and carefully designed to last several years before they need to be replaced.

"Love my new smile!"

"The best dentist office around! I hadn't been to the dentist in many years because of how intimidating they can be. This place is the opposite! Everyone is so welcoming and makes you feel at home. I had major gum work and also got veneers. Love my new smile!" Trent Moore - 2020 - 5-Star Review

Are Veneers Right for Me?

Your dentist will determine if this dental procedure is right for you based on the following: 

tooth, dental, gum, pain, Swollen, gingivitis, inflammation

Oral Health

If you show signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, or other health concerns, Dr. Ip must resolve these issues before moving forward with veneers. We can provide virtually any preparatory care you might need in-office.

Teeth Grinding 

Some people grind their teeth all day due to stress and other factors. Dr. Ip only uses very strong materials, but teeth grinding can still cause damage as time goes on. You might need a customized night guard to protect your new smile when sleeping.

Minor vs Major Misalignment

Having porcelain covers bonded over your teeth is a simple, effective way to hide minor dental misalignment. But if your issues are severe, Dr. Ip might suggest braces or Invisalign® instead. 

Commitment to Good Oral Hygiene 

In order to maintain your cosmetic enhancement, you should brush at least twice a day, floss daily, and schedule regular cleanings and exams at our beautiful Central Austin office.

It is also very important for anyone wishing to receive dental veneers to understand that once a tooth has been prepped for this treatment, it will always require some kind of dental restoration to compensate for the reduced enamel. 

"Best dentist ever!"

"Best Dentist Ever! Been coming here for about a year now, and I have consistently been blown away by the friendliness, professionalism, and overall badassery of everyone I've interacted with at Smile 360. You will be in GREAT hands with Dr. Ip and his staff. I can say without a doubt this is the best dentist's office I've ever interacted with. A++" Chris B. - 2019 - 5-Star Review

Aren't Veneers More Expensive Than Other Treatments? 

They can cost more than other treatments, but that's because they look more natural and last longer than the alternatives. For example, dental bonding costs less and can look reasonably natural, but the results aren't as realistic and don't last as long. 

Why Veneers Are Worth the Investment

For the right candidates, veneers are a worthwhile investment because:

  • They are made to last a decade or longer.
  • Each veneer is carefully crafted to look natural and feel comfortable in your mouth.
  • In many cases, they can provide the same results as other cosmetic procedures such as whitening, orthodontics, and dental crowns combined.
  • The entire process takes a few weeks, usually requiring only two to three visits to our warm and friendly office.
  • If you want to resolve minor misalignment, they can provide the desired results much faster than orthodontics.

What to Expect from Start to Finish

Here's what to expect over the course of your two porcelain veneer treatment appointments:

Consultation/First Visit

You'll meet Dr. Ip at our relaxing Central Austin office on popular South Lamar Boulevard to review your oral health and discuss treatment goals. He will only recommend this treatment if he truly believes you are a candidate and that it can help you achieve the smile enhancement you envision.

Planning 

Dr. Ip will take your facial features and desired goals into account when designing your veneers and creating a custom treatment plan. If you'd like, he can create a mock-up so that you can preview your results. 

Preparation 

If you are satisfied with your proposed treatment plan, Dr. Ip will prepare the treated teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. He will take a second set of impressions and place temporary veneers to protect your smile. 

Fabrication

Over the next few weeks, your custom veneers will be crafted by a skilled ceramic artist at a trusted lab. These restorations are precisely fabricated based on Dr. Ip's instructions for the most natural-looking results.

Placement

When your veneers are returned to our office, you will come back for your second appointment. Dr. Ip will test the fit and feel of the restorations, etch your teeth to create a stable base, and permanently bond the veneers in place. There is no recovery involved. Once the dentist bonds the veneers onto your teeth, you are ready to start enjoying your new smile right away.
