Dental Veneers From Billings, MT Dentist – Dr. Stuart
Veneers can be the perfect solution to a sad smile. Our Billings, MT dentist at Legacy Smiles offers beautifully-designed and skillfully-crafted veneers that can revolutionize the way you look and feel. If you have stained, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth, dental veneers may be for you.
What are dental veneers and how do they work?
What are porcelain veneers? Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-designed shells that are made to completely cover the surface of your tooth. Our veneers are made by layering tooth-colored materials to create a strong, long-lasting shell.
Veneers, the best way to explain what those are ... People have heard about them. They always come in and ask me about them, but very few people actually know what they are. To explain it in terms that women certainly understand, it's like the false fingernails that we're going to overlay onto your own to make your teeth the right shape, color, and contour in your smile to enhance that, to make them look better. Veneers themselves come in a whole variety of different materials. In my opinion, the very best are the feldspathic type of veneers, which literally require a very, very good technician to sit down with his palate of colors and porcelain and they literally hand-stack these and design these from the bottom up.
They are blending several different colors to make these things look literally like absolute natural teeth. An idea candidate I think would just be the person that is conscientious about their smile, once again wants to look great, wants to look great for a long period of time, and understands that it's a process. It's an artistic process. It's not just a slam-dunk canned procedure for everybody. It's a very artistic and individualized process, and sometimes it takes a little time to make sure we got the best result.
After a short waiting period, you will return to our Billings, MT dentist office for a second visit. During this visit, we will bond the thin material to your tooth. Before bonding, your teeth are cleaned and polished to ensure a strong connection. Dr. Stuart will also ensure that each veneer fits properly and is the correct shade of white. Your veneers are then bonded to the surface of each tooth using a special type of dental cement. Once placed, the glue is then activated by a special light in order to harden and create your permanent new smile.
What are the benefits of getting dental veneers?
They're very friendly. I've been going to Dr. Stuart for a long time, I can't even tell you how many years, and the longer you stay the better you get to know them and the more that the services you receive are what you want. Legacy Smiles’ staff is very great about explaining what they're going to do next, the steps they're going to take, how long it's going to be. They're very informative and it kind of eases your mind a little bit.
I had an accident when I was a young child, a biking accident where my two front teeth were knocked out. They'd been capped probably 10-plus times throughout the years. I was never satisfied with them. They'd keep chipping off or breaking, so last year I finally decided to get veneers on all four front teeth. He was very patient and we did a lot of work. It was probably a whole summer-long process, but he made it very easy.
I was always very conscious of it during pictures and I didn't like how I looked in pictures so I would alter my smile, but now I don't have to do that. I've gotten a lot of great feedback. Sometimes I don't want to tell them that they're veneers though. Yeah, I've gotten a lot of compliments. It's been a very well-received procedure.
- They will provide a long-lasting, beautiful smile. Once veneers are placed, they are entirely permanent and should not need additional care or work for another 15 to 20 years. They will change your life.
- The changes are instant. Once your veneers teeth are placed, your teeth will immediately have the perfect appearance you desire. Many people spend months attempting to correct their smile with orthodontic treatment or by using whitening regularly to keep their smile bright. You, on the other hand, will have a perfect smile instantly without all of the other procedures.
- They are stain resistant. Porcelain veneers stay whiter longer than your natural teeth.
- They are natural-looking. Because we can adjust the color, shape, and size to fit your mouth, we can create a completely natural appearance. With our veneers, you truly can have a perfect smile.

If your kids don’t like to go to the dentist, try Dr. Stuart. Our kids love him and his team. We just visited them yesterday for our 6 month checkup and cleaning, and Brianne was awesome! When I was a kid, the dental hygienist was a lumberjack – but not Brianne, she’s very professional and mindful of each of us. I have sensitive teeth and gums, and my visit with Dr. Stuart and his team was relaxing and easy. And the receptionist Lisa is so great, she always has a smile and positive attitude…so refreshing to have a dentist like Dr. Stuart. We have been going to Dr. Stuart for over 10 years, give him a try; you and your kids will notice the difference.
Our family found the way to Legacy Smiles in the midst of an ongoing yet undiagnosed dental crisis. Fortunately, Dr. Stuart aptly diagnosed the situation and promptly referred me to an oral surgeon to bring immediate relief. Since then, our family continues to be blessed by the genuine empathy and compassion Dr. Stuart has for his patients. He openly addresses any worries or fears we have, always in an informative and respectful manner. We encounter the same high standard of care with all of the staff at Legacy Smiles. Any treatment concerns or financial issues are courteously and promptly addressed and resolved. Dr. Stuart and Legacy Smiles provide the finest professional dental services with incomparable personal care!
Thank you, Dr. Stuart, for the senior discount on the dental work you have done for Vern and me. We’re also sending ‘kudos’ for you as well as your professional and competent staff – Lisa is a gem! It has been a pleasure interacting with all of you through the years. You and Cheryl are a good team… you’re ‘easy on the mouth’!
I wanted to thank you for the excellent service and experience I receive each time I come to your office. I appreciate the warm welcome, the time you spend explaining the procedures, and the personal touch you give. You always go the extra mile and have been a wonderful blessing to my family.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Stuart for approximately 10 years. First I established dental care, then I quickly realized my children were of age to begin dental care as well. Dr. Stuart and his team have always been amazing to work with. I have 3 children ages 14, 10, and 5. Not one of them is fearful or frightened to go to the dentist. In fact, my 10-year-old just realized this year that she is actually “getting a shot” when she comes in for dental maintenance. She got her first filling at age 4! We are treated professionally, and they are always accommodating to our scheduling needs. I have frequently recommended friends or family to Legacy Smiles and Dr. Stuart only to receive a personal thank you letter and gift as a thank you! Lisa is always on the ball with insurance claims and reminders. I just have to show up! Thank you Dr. Stuart and the team at Legacy Smiles! Your patient care and service has improved our dental health. We love you guys!

I live in So. California and was once visiting Billings and needed to see a dentist. I tried out a few and finally settled on Dr. Stuart. He is simply the best! He extracted a lower wisdom tooth, and when the anesthetic wore off, there was no pain. Zero, zilch, nothing! He and his hygienist are also the only ones who know how to scale and plane my very sensitive mouth with no anesthetic and no pain. And all of them, including the office manager, are very pleasant and accommodating. I highly recommend them. And I, myself, scheduled my dental work for when I was going to be in Helena, MT, then drove 4 hours each way to see this very special dentist. Well worth your while to check him out.
