The clinic near Tarrytown, Austin, TX, led by Dr. Rebecca Long, now offers patients porcelain veneer treatments crafted from high-quality, natural-looking dental ceramic. Porcelain veneers – strong, thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth – are typically used to cover up chips, cracks, and aesthetic blemishes that can hamper a patient’s self-confidence.

This latest treatment offering can help improve a person’s smile while concealing tooth imperfections.
Westlake Hills Dental Arts will prepare temporary veneers during the patient’s first appointment for tooth contouring before a ceramic specialty dental lab develops personalized veneers specifically for that patient. The clinic and the lab work closely together to customize the perfect fit, which also helps to ensure the longevity of the veneers. Veneers can last between ten and twenty years, but their lifespan is dependent both on craftsmanship and the patient’s self-care habits.
The North American dental veneers market is expected to grow at approximately 6% annually through the decade, fueled by the rising interest in aesthetic procedures, the increased incidence of dental disorders in an aging population, and the surging development of advanced composite veneer materials. Moreover, numerous studies have linked smiling to lower stress levels and blood pressure – and thus longer lifespans.
Westlake Hills Dental Arts may require two separate initial visits for veneer treatment. During the first appointment, Dr. Long trims a thin layer of enamel off the patient’s teeth. This creates space for the veneer placement before impressions are made and the patient’s natural tooth color is determined. Once the permanent veneers are ready, the final step involves replacing the temporary with the permanent veneers, which are bonded to the teeth and “cured” under a specialized light.
The durability of the veneers is then dependent on several variables, including the original condition of the tooth, the degree of grinding and clenching they are subjected to, how the patient’s teeth fit together, and the care given to them.
Tarrytown, Austin, TX: Westlake Hills Dental Arts also provides in-house and take-home teeth whitening service, dental crown and bridge treatments, and other teeth restoration services. Additionally, the clinic provides routine, standard dental care for regular checkups and cleanings.
