Porcelain Veneers – Houston, TX

Personalized Porcelain Veneers in Houston, TX

Do you hold back from smiling because you’re embarrassed about the appearance of your teeth? Your smile is a natural and unique part of who you are, but if you dislike how yours looks, it can significantly impact your self-confidence.

To help you regain confidence in your smile and yourself, we offer porcelain dental veneers in Houston, TX, a cosmetic dentistry treatment that hides tooth imperfections such as chips, gaps, discoloration, or crookedness. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Nicholas Pigneri, is experienced in the artistic and technical aspects of these custom smile makeovers and can create your dream smile in as few as two appointments with porcelain veneers!

What Are Dental Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are fittings customized for placement directly over existing teeth. Dental veneers are excellent solutions for easily concealing stained, damaged, or misshapen teeth. As a cosmetic dentistry treatment, veneers aren’t meant to resolve functional issues with teeth, such as a bad bite (malocclusion). Instead, they can be a great option if you have the following issues in your smile zone, or the teeth that show when you smile. With veneers, our cosmetic dentists can:

  • Brighten your smile. Teeth which have become stained or discolored can be concealed with veneers. Brighten and whiten the smile while saving stained or discolored teeth from more-invasive treatment.
  • Tighten your smile. Teeth with gaps or damage may interrupt the smile.  Porcelain dental veneers can help tighten the smile, filling the spaces between teeth for a seamless smile.
  • Straighten your smile. Crooked, misshapen, and damaged teeth can all shift the appearance of the smile. Custom-fitted porcelain veneers help balance and straighten smiles.

Porcelain dental veneers look and feel like real teeth and require little to no preparation. In some cases, porcelain veneers are applied directly to the surface of existing teeth. In other cases, existing teeth may require slight preparation before fabricating veneers.  Oral sedation and local anesthetic are available for a comfortable, relaxing, and painless experience.

The Procedure for Porcelain Veneers

Getting porcelain veneers is fast and simple.  Porcelain veneers are applied over a two-step process, beginning with a consultation before returning for permanent fitting.  At Houston Dentists at Post Oak, veneers are fitted in a comfortable, relaxing environment with optional oral sedation.

Initial Examination

Porcelain veneers begin with a relaxing visit to our Galleria office.  Meeting with one of our dentists you will discuss your dental goals and learn how veneers can help you achieve them.  For a precise fit, impressions of the teeth will be taken for creating the veneers.

Porcelain veneer creation takes place in a dental lab. Using the impressions taken in our office custom veneers are created offsite, then returned. Once the porcelain veneers are prepared, patients will return for a permanent fitting.

Application

The second visit completes the porcelain veneer process.  Custom veneers are fitted precisely over teeth, concealing the entire visible portion for a flawless appearance.  The veneers will have been color matched to blend with the surrounding teeth, completing the smile. For any gum sculpting, advanced dental lasers offer pain-free and fast results.

In many cases, patients select more than one tooth for porcelain veneers.  Dental veneers may also be included with as part of other dental procedures, such as teeth whitening. Dental veneers look and feel like the teeth they’ve concealed, but better! Dental veneers are permanent and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Beyond practicing proper dental hygiene habits, aftercare for porcelain dental veneers is minimal. Porcelain dental veneers are fittings adhered to the surface of existing teeth. Impacts may damage or unseat porcelain veneers.  Brush regularly, exercise caution when chewing, and visit Houston Dentists at Post Oak for regular dental exams at least twice per year.

Dental Veneer Frequently Asked Questions

Are Porcelain Veneers Pain-Free?

Porcelain veneers are designed to fit right over the teeth. In some cases, teeth may be shaved a fraction of a millimetre for optimal fit. If shaving or other dental work is required, patients will receive a local anesthetic. Additionally, Dr. Pigneri offers oral sedation for an overall comfortable, relaxing, and pain-free experience.

How do I care for porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are long-term dental additions requiring minimal care beyond practicing good oral hygiene. Brush 2-3 times daily and take care to avoid cracking or chipping veneers on especially hard foods.

Can I whiten my teeth with veneers?

Teeth resisting whitening treatments may be whitened with porcelain veneers. Oftentimes, porcelain veneers are included as a part of a professional whitening treatment helping patients achieve a bright, balanced tone across the smile.
