"I haven't been to the dentist in over five years. It's a lot easier said then done but when you don't have insurance or have the finances it gets pushed back over the years. I would highly recommend Dr. Henegar. The office was clean and modern. The staff all had smiles and were very friendly upon entering the office. I was greeted with a hand shake by the doctor himself. We took x-rays of my teeth and came up with a plan. Dr. Henegar was very friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. It felt good to go to the dentist and not be questioned as to why I haven't been to a dentist in so long.We came up with a step by step plan for future visits and he even recommended ortho to help straightrn my bottom teeth in the future. I couldn't be happier with the affordablility but also with the friendly staff. It is nice to be known and addressed by your name rather then a patient room number. No judgments here."- E.M. / Google / Sep 15, 2021

He and his staff are so friendly and caring and make you feel like more than just a dollar walking in the door. As long as I live in the Springs, I’ll be coming back to him!"- M.W. / Google / Sep 15, 2021

What To Expect from Porcelain Veneers
At R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A., your cosmetic veneers will be custom created to fit comfortably over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. In your consultation, Dr. Henegar will listen to your objectives and expectations so he can personalize your treatment. As soon as your unique treatment plan has been developed, Dr. Henegar will take dental impressions and your cosmetic veneers will be created out of high-quality porcelain material. When your custom veneers are ready to be inserted, Dr. Henegar will remove a little bit of enamel from the front of your teeth to create space for the porcelain veneers and to improve the bond for a more natural outcome and long-lasting results. When your veneers are secured, Dr. Henegar will make minor adjustments so that they fit comfortably. Getting veneers typically doesn't require anesthesia so you should be able to resume your daily tasks after your appointment. You may experience sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a few days, but this should fade away. While porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains compared to natural teeth, you still need to avoid staining drinks and foods to keep your veneers bright and maintain a good at-home oral cleaning routine. To avoid chipping your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. Dr. Henegar will monitor the condition of your veneers at your dental exams and cleanings.
Porcelain Veneer FAQs
Do porcelain veneers ruin your teeth or cause them to rot?
If done properly by an experienced doctor, porcelain veneers do not ruin your teeth or cause them to rot. In fact, because veneers are resistant to bacteria and staining, they can make your regular dental hygiene easier. The only major risk is from applying veneers to an already decaying tooth since it may hide the problem, which your doctor will address prior to the procedure. For some people, if the enamel has to be shaved to apply the veneers, it can make the teeth more sensitive to hot and cold.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers aren't technically permanent because, at some point, they may need to be replaced. But for most people, a set of porcelain veneers, when applied by an experienced doctor and taken care of with regular oral care, can last for decades.
Are porcelain veneers worth it?
Porcelain veneers can be a higher-cost cosmetic dental procedure. That's why there are different price options you can choose from to fit your budget – and nothing can put a price on the confidence a beautiful smile can give you.
