Five Myths About Cosmetic Veneers

White teeth

It is common for teeth to be imperfect. They may have unsightly gaps and unevenness or suffer stains and chips over time. When these flaws occur on the front teeth, it can be a real detriment to your self-esteem. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry offers a remarkable solution with porcelain veneers. Veneers are one of the most highly preferred options for covering up a wide range of aesthetic dental issues and creating a celebrity smile that you can be proud of.

Despite the beauty and versatility of veneers, there are still some misconceptions surrounding the procedure that cause some patients to shy away. To set the record straight, we’ve exposed five of the most common myths about porcelain veneers:

Myth #1: The application is painful. Veneers do require that a small portion of your teeth be shaved off so that the porcelain shell can form a strong bond to you natural tooth. However, you will be given a local anesthetic to eliminate any pain or discomfort.

Myth #2: Veneers are only placed in the front of your mouth. While veneers are most often placed on the six upper front teeth or the ones that are most visible when you smile, they can also be used on lower teeth and premolars when necessary.

Myth #3: Most of the tooth must to be filed down before veneers can be placed. The reshaping and prep work to a tooth before veneers is very minimal and does not include your entire tooth.

Myth #4: Veneers only serve to improve the appearance of teeth.It is true that veneers are primarily cosmetic. However, veneers can also be used to fill out the cheeks and build (or rebuild) molars.

Myth #5: Veneers are unnaturally white and fake-looking.Modern veneers are customized to match the thickness, shape and natural color of your existing teeth. Therefore, they can look extremely natural.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
