Dental Veneers in Sugar Land, TX

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures we perform at Aliana Family Dental is dental veneers. These are customized for your mouth to cover chipped teeth, reduce gaps, and fix misshapen teeth. They are thin covers that stick to your teeth and give them a more traditional shape and look.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom made to fit the teeth. They’re thin shells that get placed over teeth. Porcelain veneers are strong enough to last a long time. They have a more natural look and feel. They don’t stain very easily, and they also don’t require as much enamel to be scraped away for the installation.

Removing the enamel will prepare your teeth for the veneers. Then, the prepared teeth are molded with an impression, and your teeth are color-matched to the rest of your mouth.

A lab will make the porcelain veneer specifically according to the mold of your teeth. You may be given temporary veneers to wear until they finished. Then, when they arrive, the veneers are attached to your teeth. They are checked for fit and shape and adjusted. Your teeth are then cleaned, and the veneers get bonded to your teeth.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are made from filling materials that are the same color as teeth. These veneers don’t need as much enamel removed as porcelain veneers. They also require fewer follow up visits and cost far less. They’re really easy to fix if you damage them, but they’re not as resistant to damage as porcelain veneers.

With these, your teeth are reshaped and prepared. The material is then sculpted and bonded to your teeth. A light will harden the composite, bonding it to your teeth. Then, the veneers get polished and smoothed, so they look like real teeth.

Are veneers right for you?

Your gums and teeth have to be healthy in order to get veneers. Disease and decay must be treated before installation. Veneers aren’t a great option if you clench your jaw or grind your teeth under stress, either, because they can break.

This is a permanent process, too. Once you remove enamel from teeth, it never grows back. Veneers can also loosen over time, so you may need new ones.
