Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and effective cosmetic dentistry treatments available today. Placed over the front of your teeth, our Houston cosmetic dentists can use porcelain veneers to perfect the appearance of teeth that are:
- Chipped or cracked
- Unevenly sized or shaped
- Severely discolored, even underneath the enamel
Alone or as part of a more comprehensive smile makeover, porcelain veneers can greatly improve the overall appearance of nearly any smile.
If you are unhappy with your smile and would like to learn if porcelain veneers are right for you, please contact BRSH Dental or call (832) 779-2774 today to schedule a consultation with one of our Houston cosmetic dentists.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
Porcelain veneers, often referred to as instant orthodontics, are incredibly thin, but require minor tooth preparation to fit seamlessly into your smile. Dr. Tjoa or Dr. Morency will first need to remove a small amount of tooth enamel on the teeth being fitted with veneers to ensure ideal final results. Following the removal of tooth enamel, an impression will be made of your teeth and you will be fitted with temporary veneers.
The impression of your teeth will be sent to our trusted dental lab partners who will carefully craft your porcelain veneers to our exact specifications. Once your customized porcelain veneers are ready, you will return to our office to have them placed. The entire process typically takes two to three weeks.
Dr. Tjoa and Dr. Morency are experienced cosmetic dentists who take great care to preserve as much of your natural tooth enamel as possible when placing porcelain veneers. However, if you are uncomfortable with having enamel removed we can discuss alternatives such as Lumineers®. These dental makeover options do not require tooth preparation, but may not be able to address more pronounced cosmetic issues.
