More patients are unhappy with their smiles than they put off. Unfortunately, this means that there are countless people that feel less than confident about themselves. Here at Premier Family Dental, we work hard to make sure our patients love their teeth and what they have to offer. We can do this by offering a variety of cosmetic services. Dr. Cofer is here to help you choose between your next smile improvements: porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic dental restorations available on the market. They accomplish improving the appearance of your smile and function of your teeth all in one dental procedure by masking dental flaws. If you need to improve the length, shape, proportion, surface texture, or brightness of your teeth, consider these thin shells of dental porcelain as one of the best chances of seamlessly covering those flaws for good.
- Veneers only require a minimal amount of your natural teeth to be shaved down, keeping most your natural teeth intact.
- If you have teeth that are resistant to whitening, porcelain veneers can make even the darkest smile appear white again.
- Cofer may also recommend porcelain veneers in Waco for minor overlapping issues or small gaps.
What are dental crowns?
We also offer a dental restoration and cosmetic fix rolled into one. A dental crown is a restoration designed to completely cover an individual tooth They can also replace missing teeth with the help of dental implant posts.

- Restoring a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy.
