Porcelain Veneers Houston
Veneers are thin, semi-transparent tooth-shaped “shells” that are custom-made of porcelain. They are permanently bonded to your natural teeth which are located in your “smile zone” to enhance their shape, color, length or size. Porcelain veneers can fix gaps between teeth and/or improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshaped, or misaligned.
- The teeth are cleaned and any old surface restorations are removed.
- An impression is taken of the prepped tooth and sent to a lab where a veneer is fabricated.
- The veneer is applied with a bonding resin and curing light.
- After the veneer is set, it is shaped and polished to look like a natural tooth.

Closing Tooth Gaps

Advantages and Benefits
Veneers are a great cosmetic solution to your smile that may even help you avoid orthodontic treatment. Subtle changes to your smile can be achieved with them, and in most cases, the application is completed in only two office visits. They are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
There are many benefits and advantages to having porcelain veneers placed on your front teeth. At one time, resin fillings or crowns were the only available treatment for these conditions. Today, a third alternative is available. The advantages of them may include all of the following considerations:
- often no anesthesia is required
- only a small amount of tooth structure (if any) is removed during the procedure
- a healthy “natural” look is achieved with little or no discomfort

What to Expect
Veneers can last for years, depending on how well they are taken care of by the patient. Because they are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping.
You must maintain regular oral hygiene at home, and visit us for routine cleaning and exams. This is to ensure that your new veneers will look as good as new.
You should avoid staining foods and beverages, such as blueberries, cherries, coffee, tea and red wine. Another important point is that oral habits such as nail biting, opening bobby pins and chewing on hard objects could damage them.
