Cover Your Cosmetic Flaws

Attractive smile

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front side of your teeth to cover an array of imperfections. Overall, they improve their color, size, shape, and proportion to leave you feeling confident about your smile.

Veneers are quite versatile. They can be used to cover several flaws, such as dark tooth discoloration, chips, or cracks. They are the perfect solution for those who have shorter than average teeth or those that are abnormally shaped. In some cases, they can even be used as an alternative to traditional braces by making your teeth appear straighter.

Choose a Minimally Invasive Solution

Veneers

Generally, if your natural teeth are healthy, you are a candidate for the procedure. After your initial consultation, a customized treatment plan will be created to start your journey to a beautiful smile.

During the first phase of the procedure, your teeth will be cleaned, and a small amount of enamel will be removed. This is necessary to ensure that the veneers sit flush on your teeth. Since they are made from porcelain, less of the tooth’s structure is removed during the etching process.

Impressions are then taken to create your custom-made veneers. They will be made to match your exact size, shape, and color needs. The information is sent to the dental lab where they will be made with precision and accuracy. While you wait for your new smile to be ready, temporary ones will be bonded in place. In about two weeks, you will return to your Katy dentist to have your permanent ones placed. You will walk out of your appointment with restored self-esteem.

Invest in Your Smile

If you need a smile makeover, porcelain veneers allow you to make a long-term investment. On average, they can cost between $800 to $2,000 per tooth; however, there are several factors that will influence the price, such as the number of teeth being treated and your insurance coverage.

Although porcelain veneers do cost more than those made from other materials, they allow you to make a long-term investment. During your consultation, we will provide you with an estimate and discuss your payment options.

With the right care, like using nonabrasive dental products, your new smile will last for an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced.
