Porcelain Veneers in Houston

Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted thin shells that conceal imperfections on the front surface of teeth. They're favored in cosmetic dentistry for enhancing smiles by covering issues like discoloration, chips, or gaps. Renowned for their durability and resistance to stains, porcelain veneers offer a natural and enduring solution for smile transformations.

Who Qualifies for Porcelain Veneers?

Candidates for porcelain veneers often seek solutions to dental imperfections like stubborn stains or discoloration, misshapen teeth, chips, or cracks. Veneers offer a cosmetic remedy by providing a natural-looking cover for such concerns, resulting in a brighter, more symmetrical smile.

Qualifying for porcelain veneers involves having good oral health and a stable bite. Candidates should have enough enamel on their teeth for proper adhesion of the veneers. Those with moderate to severe tooth decay, gum disease, or untreated dental issues will need to address these concerns before being considered a candidate for veneers.

Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers

The process of getting porcelain veneers involves several steps. Initially, the dentist conducts a comprehensive examination to assess dental health and discuss the patient's smile goals. 

Next, a small amount of enamel is removed from the teeth to accommodate the veneers. Impressions of the teeth are then taken and sent to a dental lab for custom fabrication of the veneers. 

Once ready, the veneers are bonded to the teeth using dental cement, and any final adjustments are made for a perfect fit and appearance. 

Overall, the process typically requires a few appointments spread over several weeks to achieve the final results.
