What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers are very thin, wafer-like covers applied to your teeth to give them a more uniform appearance. They are a great way to improve the appearance of your teeth, as they also come in a variety of shades that can brighten your smile and provide a more uniform color.

Veneers are also great for improving the appearance of teeth that are crooked, chipped or cracked. A full set of veneers can drastically change the appearance of your front teeth, making them even in size, shape, and color.

What Are Veneers?

Are There Different Kinds of Veneers?

Veneers are available in a variety of different types, with most being made from porcelain or a composite resin material. Depending on which veneers you choose, and the one your Houston dentist recommends, the procedure can vary. There are also “no-prep” varieties available, which can be applied faster.

You can expect porcelain veneers to last about 10 years, although they can last quite a bit longer with good hygiene and care practices. No-prep veneers last about half that time, with 5 years being the expected lifetime.

How Are Veneers Put On?

When you come to Smile Unique Dental and Orthodontics to get your veneers in Houston, your dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the best option for your needs.

For Porcelain Veneers

The procedure will begin by your dentist shaving a small amount of outer enamel off your teeth – this lets the veneers bond more strongly to the tooth surface. Then, they make an impression of your teeth and send it for fabrication. A dental lab will then make porcelain veneers based on the shape and size of your teeth.

For Composite Resin Veneers

Resin veneers require a small amount of tooth enamel to be shaved off your teeth, just like porcelain veneers. However, the dentist applies a thin layer of composite material to your tooth, adding as many layers as necessary to get the desired finish. They finish the procedure by shining a curing light to the teeth to allow the resin to harden.

For No-Prep Veneers

These are the least time-consuming to install, and don’t require a lot of preparation. The veneers are pre-made; the dentist confirms their fit and placement and applies them to your teeth.
