At Vivid Dental, patients in and around the area of Houston enjoy a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative services. Patients worried about the appearance of their smile want to find out what can be done to improve them. In many situations, restorations such as porcelain veneers are often the best possible choice for treatment.

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are ceramic facings. They are custom-made for patients to match the shape, size, color, and overall appearance of their natural teeth. The dentist bonds them in place over the front of the teeth to disguise problem areas and offer patients a fast, effective solution to imperfections.
Imperfections easily covered by porcelain veneers include:

  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Broken and fractured teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Strangely shaped teeth
  • Short teeth

Patients approach their dentist with many questions about this restoration that can be easily answered during a consultation visit. Before patients have their veneers placed, they should fully understand the procedure and how it works. Preparation requires removal of a thin portion of enamel from the front of the tooth. Impressions are made to be used by a ceramist to fabricate the restorations. After a week or so, the patient returns to the practice for the bonding of the veneers in place.

Why choose porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are extremely popular because they are fast, simple, and affordable. They also look completely natural and are done in a relatively short period of time from start to finish. This elective procedure is often chosen over alternative solutions such as dental bonding. While bonding can provide the same coverage, this material is not stain resistant and only known for lasting just a few years when compared to veneers, which can last ten years or longer.
