Porcelain Veneer Questions

Porcelain veneers transform crooked, misshapen, or chipped teeth. Many individuals seek the smile of their dreams with the help of veneers. Whether for the health of an individual’s mouth or cosmetic reasons, veneers can grant an individual a beautifully strong smile to show off everywhere they go.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers made from porcelain grant an individual a new facade for their teeth. These thinly formed pieces of porcelain have the appearance of natural teeth, which a dentist will attach to the front of the teeth.

The forms are made in a laboratory by a ceramist using impressions of a person’s teeth. The impressions ensure proper adhesion of the veneers to the individual’s teeth occurs. The customization of veneers allows for long-lasting results for the individual.

Do I need Veneers?

If a person has deep stains on their teeth, fractures, or discoloration, veneers could benefit them. Additionally, veneers can correct misaligned teeth and cracked or chipped teeth. The confidence veneers can bring a person is instantly seen when they can’t help but smile after receiving their veneers.

Are They Permanent?

The veneers we use at our comprehensive and cosmetic dental office in Houston, TX, will typically last 10-15 years. Individuals with veneers will need to follow aftercare directions carefully to ensure a long lifespan of their veneers.

Will Veneers Stain?

Yes, veneers can stain. However, the stains are extrinsic or surface level. This type of teeth staining is due to specific foods and drinks, like coffee. However, cleaning the extrinsic stains is quickly done with a dentist’s help.
