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.
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.
