If you’re ready to get started transforming your smile, call our Houston dental office team to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation today.
Our skilled team of professionals can use porcelain veneers to correct and conceal any number of cosmetic smile flaws. Porcelain veneers can take years off of your smile and give you whiter, straighter, and truly flawless teeth in just two appointments. Using porcelain veneers, we can hide chips, smooth slight misalignments, and whiten discolored teeth.
There are many benefits to creating your picture-perfect smile using porcelain veneers. Some of the reasons patients most often choose veneers include the following:
Veneers are made from thin sheaths of porcelain layered to appear natural and realistic. If you’re interested in getting porcelain veneers to enhance your smile, Dr. Lawton will sit down with you to determine whether they are your best cosmetic dentistry option. Following an initial appointment during which we’ll discuss your goals, we’ll schedule two additional treatment appointments. During the first treatment visit, we prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of surface enamel to allow your new veneer to lay flat within your smile. Then, we’ll send you home with a set of temporary veneers while your final custom veneers are being manufactured at a lab. When we receive the final product, you’ll return for the second appointment at which we will exchange your temporary for flawless set of high quality porcelain veneers.
Maintaining your porcelain veneers requires simply brushing and flossing daily, keeping up with your routine checkups and hygiene appointments, and possibly wearing a nightguard to bed while you sleep.
