These days, porcelain veneers aren’t really cosmetic dentistry’s best kept secrets anymore. The word is out about how amazing porcelain veneers truly are and the benefits (and beauty) they can bring to practically any smile.
We recommend porcelain veneers for patients who have teeth that are:
- Mildly crooked
- Discolored that don’t respond to whitening
It’s important to be in good overall oral health before veneers are placed. Dr. Samineni will check your teeth and gums for signs of decay or infection, which will need to be treated first. Also, the teeth that will receive veneers need to have enough enamel for the veneers to bond to.
If one or more of these issues are affecting your teeth, you should consider scheduling a no-obligation consultation at Northpointe Smiles. Dr. Neelima Samineni, a trusted cosmetic dentist in Tomball, has the training and the technology to create a porcelain veneer smile that’s brilliant and balanced.
Porcelain veneers are powerful little dental tools with the ability to add strength and support to weak teeth, lengthen short teeth, and cover up issues you don’t want anyone else to see. We custom-create each porcelain veneer to cover the surface of your teeth, without looking unnatural or extremely noticeable. Talk to us about how cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers can change your smile forever.
What is the Procedure Like?
Getting veneers usually takes two appointments. During the first visit, we’ll need to prepare your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel equal to the thickness of the veneer that you’ll receive. We can then take an impression of your tooth. The impression is sent to a lab where the veneer is made, which can take around two to four weeks. You might wear temporary veneers while you’re waiting.
You’ll receive your veneers during the second appointment. After verifying the color, shape, and fit so that it blends in with the rest of your smile, we’ll bond the veneer to your tooth using a special cement that’s hardened with the light.
