About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can restore an attractive smile by covering certain concerns, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and other issues. Thin, custom-designed covers that go over the front surface of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are strong, but still thin enough to be semi-transparent, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting dental veneers created by our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX is a efficient, easy way to conceal many physical flaws and make a restored, healthy smile.

"I was terrified of dentists until I became a patient of Dr Devlin. I "was" instilled with a fear of dentists since childhood in Australia (snakes, spiders and dentists are MEAN over there), maturing to adulthood I figured that ignorance was bliss and that if no teeth were black and/or falling out then I didn't need to see a dentist. Now, in my 30's, my wisdom teeth erupted and I was having issues so HAD to see a dentist, I eventually conceded that it was time to face my fear so I went to see the lucky Dr Devlin. (Who my husband had already been seeing) I brought my husband in room for moral support, Dr Devlin and his tech thought that was amusing, my husband was embarrassed but I was "happy wife". I needed my wisdom teeth removed and had more than a dozen cavities. (Oops!) For those if you afraid of needles, I've never felt a single needle stick for local anaesthetics administered by Dr Devlin. He is understanding of my irrational fear and of my medical issues and I always leave with a smile. Dr Devlin and his team are fantastic, they're flexible, cheerful, and I love their customer service. I have always been greeted by my first name as when I walk in the door, Dr Devlin asks about hubby and my fur babies at every visit (I've now had a visit or two, ya know, teeth with more holes than Swiss cheese) My irrational fear gives me some insane facial expressions and poorly timed nervous talking sessions during dental work which is less than ideal but have caused moments of uncontrollable laughter for everyone else in the room. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would."- L.S. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2018
"NEW UPDATE!!9/26/18I had my teeth cleaned by the most knowledgeable dental hygienist ever. She was able to answer my questions while performing the most thorough cleaning possible. If you have not tried this dental office, and are looking for a great place to call your dental home, it will be impossible to find better. 9/11/17Today was my second visit to Highland, and again the experience was absolutely perfect. In fact, soboerfect, that I am going back tomorrow to get some fillings repaired and replaced. If you are looking for a new dentist, I have no problem at all recommending Highland. ORIGINAL POSTAfter spending over 20 years with an amazing dentist here in Pearland, my insurance forced me to look for a new dental home. Honestly, I was more than nervous, I was worried and extremely hesitant to make an appointment with my selected new dentist. Finally, I made an appointment and forced myself to go. When I arrived, I almost rescheduled and left for the day. I stayed, and I could not be happier. First, the young lady at the front desk went out of her way to help get my insurance information set up, and just shoot the breeze to help me relax. After no wait at all, I was welcomed by the young lady who was ready to do exrays and clean my teeth. She could not have been any kinder, or more thorough, throughout my entire exam. She actually did techniques I have never had done in 20 years, including photographing each tooth. Once the Dr came in, he was as personable as any Dr I have ever been around. He also was extremely thorough, and explained everything he was seeing, in great detail. In closing, I can only say, my day at Highland Dental could not have gone any better."- J.H. / Google / Sep 27, 2018

What to Expect
To start the process of creating the personalized dental veneers our dentists will make room for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be attached to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to craft the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX. The custom dental veneers will be bonded to the front surface of the teeth with a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will alter the dental veneers as needed to provide the patient a snug fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually made for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like soda, tea, coffee, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home oral care routine, including daily brushing with a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics. With good care, dental veneers can last up to 20 years.
Porcelain veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX accepts many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
