What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a wonder of modern cosmetic dentistry. Far from an aesthetic-only solution, veneers have the ability to perfect the appearance and function of smiles impacted by things such as:
- Gapped teeth
- Irregularly sized teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth discolored by mineralization and medications
- Bite correction
Often called instant orthodontics due to their ability to provide a straight, white, beautiful smile in as little as two weeks, porcelain veneers are a very popular choice for our Houston area patients.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells placed over the front of your existing teeth to correct almost any conceivable cosmetic imperfection. In doing so, they sometimes serve to strengthen your teeth and bite, making them an excellent procedure for complete dental makeovers.
Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald W. Konig offers both traditional porcelain veneers and non-prep or minimal prep veneers such as Lumineers®, a solution that can provide a straight, white, long term smile. The placement of both traditional veneers and minimal prep veneers takes place over two to three office visits, and can restore your smile to a brilliant state in a few short weeks. In fact, having out own ceramist allows us to do the whole restoration in days too.
Dr. Konig is a graduate and Fellow at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Through years of continuous studies and experience, he has learned the art of cosmetic dentistry and the safest, most effective methods to provide our patients with beautiful smiles. Because porcelain veneers are as much an art as a science, this special training has allowed Dr. Konig to approach each smile the same way a sculptor approaches stone, with both the vision and experience to create something individual and beautiful.
You deserve to look and feel your very best. Working closely with Dr. Konig, veneers can be utilized to give you a smile that is stunningly beautiful and functionally strong.
