Straight white teeth are a surefire way to improve your appearance. However, for patients with more extensive cosmetic flaws or multiple cosmetic issues, it can be a long road to a more perfect smile. But it doesn’t have to be. At Pearland Dental Group, our Pearland cosmetic dentists, Dr. Dave and Dr. Shah, can quickly and effectively improve your smile with cosmetic dental veneers.
Cosmetic dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells attached to the front surfaces of your teeth. A cosmetic dentistry treatment, dental veneers are installed by removing a negligible amount of enamel from your teeth, usually less than the width of a fingernail. With veneers, you’ll see stellar results as soon as they’re replaced.
Instant Transformation – Cosmetic dental veneers offer predictably stellar results as soon as they’re fitted, instantly improving the look of your smile.
One Treatment For Multiple Issues – Cosmetic dental veneers offer one solution for multiple cosmetic flaws including:
Fast, Minimally Invasive Treatment – After a mere two to three appointments and removing a negligible amount of enamel, your veneers will quickly improve your smile.
Protects Your Natural Smile – Veneers may help protect your natural enamel from staining as well as sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
You may be a candidate for dental veneers if:
Rest assured your Pearland cosmetic dentist will determine your eligibility, explain your other options, and answer any questions during your initial consultation.
Before you’re approved for dental veneers, you’ll have a consultation with one of our dentists. Your consultation will consist of a thorough exam, X-rays, a review of your medical history, and questions about your smile goals. The information your dentist gathers will help them decide if dental veneers are right for you.
Your Pearland cosmetic dentist will also tell you about your other options, so your choice is informed. Your consultation is a good time to ask any questions you may have.
If you’re approved for veneers, then the next step is designing them. We’ll help you pick a shade of porcelain that matches your smile or you can go brighter and whiter to improve your smile’s appearance. We’ll also take digital images and impressions of your teeth to serve as the blueprint for your new veneers.
To prepare your teeth, your Pearland dentist will gently buff them, removing a small amount of enamel. This will help the veneers lay in a way that makes your new smile look natural.
Your Pearland dentist will check the fit and the shape of your veneers beforehand. Then, they’ll attach them to the front surfaces of your teeth with a dental-grade adhesive. Once your veneers are firmly in place, you’ll notice an instant improvement and can start enjoying your new smile.
The exact cost of your dental veneers will depend on multiple factors. This includes how many you require, the materials used, and your insurance coverage. Contact your insurance provider beforehand to confirm which costs they can cover.
Veneers tend to last seven to 15 years depending on the materials used and how well you care for them. To get the most from your veneers, you should brush and floss regularly and see your dentist at least once every six months. Your dentist should give you more specific instructions on how to care for your new smile after your dental veneers are placed.
Getting dental veneers doesn’t hurt. Removing the enamel should be a painless procedure, although patients who have dental sensitivity and may feel discomfort during the buffing process can have local anesthetic applied beforehand to ensure their comfort. After your veneers are placed, some minor sensitivity is normal but should pass on its own.
Dental veneers are removable but they can only be removed by a dental professional. Never attempt to remove your veneers yourself as this can lead to damage to your veneer and/or the tooth underneath. If you want to have your veneers removed, consult with your dental professional.
Thanks to the many advancements in dental technology, you may not have to undergo multiple cosmetic treatments to get the smile you want. For patients in Pearland as well as surrounding areas such as Fresno, Houston, Alvin, and League City, TX, cosmetic dental veneers can transform the look of their teeth with one procedure.
