Dental Veneers at Vivid Dental, Houston TX

Because your teeth are one of the first things others will notice about you, it is understandable that you want them to look as attractive as possible. Your dentist and the team at Vivid Dental in Houston, TX want your smile to send the message you desire, and we facilitate this with specific cosmetic dentistry procedures.

There is no need to live with gaps, chips, discoloration, or crooked teeth when these issues can be improved with porcelain dental veneers. This convenient cosmetic treatment is capable of restoring full beauty to your smile by evening out the smile line, brightening teeth that may not respond well to teeth whitening, or putting teeth into proper proportion. Veneers are versatile as well as durable. You can improve your smile by covering a single tooth, or receive a full smile makeover through the placement of veneers over all visible teeth.

Dental veneers are shells of material that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth or teeth. Porcelain is an ideal material for veneers, as it is highly aesthetic, and looks very much like natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is slightly translucent, meaning you can see through it. This material will also reflect light, mimicking the sheen of enamel. At the same time, porcelain is resistant to stains and able to strengthen a weakened tooth structure. Ultimately, porcelain veneers provide you with a smile that is totally natural, totally you.

The process of receiving dental veneers at Vivid Dental is quite simple. During your cosmetic evaluation, you will discuss your overall aesthetic concerns and goals. Your dentist will evaluate your teeth and gums, and discuss treatment options. Preparing for porcelain veneers can be done in a single office visit, with the teeth prepared for porcelain shells through the slight removal of surface enamel. An impression is taken of the tooth or teeth to be treated and temporary veneers are placed.

The veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory. The process takes about two weeks to complete, at which time your new veneers will be assessed for fit, shape, and color. If needed, modifications can be made immediately, and the veneers are bonded to the teeth for a new and improved smile.

Dental veneers are easy to care for. With proper maintenance, this cosmetic enhancement can provide you with your best smile for a lifetime. Contact Vivid Dental to learn how porcelain veneers can enhance your smile.

Work brought me to this side of town, so I scheduled a long overdue visit to get checked out. And when I say long overdue... I mean no flossing, 10 cavities, cracked fillings, Waffle House yellow lookin' overdue.

The office is very nice - a little modern yet intimate at the same time. They use advanced equipment and keep everything very sanitary. The paperwork was as quick and painless as my deep cleaning (Hah!). I hadn't been to the dentist for quite some time, but Dr. Harpalani made it very easy for me, explaining each step of the process and showing me the wreck that was my mouth. The office assistant and I set up a dental plan and broke it down into visits. Although I took a late appointment, he offered to stay a little late to give me a deep cleaning rather than just the regular cleaning I'd scheduled. "After I clean the left side of your mouth, you'll be begging to come back," he claimed. I scoffed at first, but after copious amounts of dental anesthesia, a lot of drilling, and a little drooling, I realized that he was right. There was a noticeable difference between the now clean left side of my smile, and the funkified right side.

Dr. Harpalani was very gentle, making sure I felt no pain with the anesthesia injection. He and his assistant both made sure that I was as comfortable as possible - so comfortable at times that I nearly fell asleep during the drilling! I actually look forward to my next dental appointment so that I can fix the right side of my messed up grill. Thanks Vivid Dental!
