Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of your natural teeth to change their color, shape, size, or length. They are made of either porcelain or resin composite materials and are bonded to your teeth with adhesive cement.
At The Dental Design Studios, veneers are an excellent option for correcting cosmetic imperfections such as chipped, cracked, stained, misaligned, and gapped teeth. They can also close spaces between teeth and correct minor misalignment issues.
Placing veneers is minimally invasive and only requires removing a small amount of enamel from the front of each tooth. Once your teeth are prepared, our dentist in Houston, TX, will take an impression of them and send it to a lab where your veneers will be fabricated. In the meantime, you will be fitted with temporary veneers to protect your teeth and allow you to eat and speak normally. When your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to our office to have them placed. Our dentist will bond the veneers to your teeth with a strong adhesive.
After your procedure, you may experience some sensitivity in your teeth, but this should subside within a few days. You should avoid eating hard foods for a few days after your procedure to prevent damaging your new veneers. With proper care and regular visits to the dentist, your veneers can last for many years.
