Houston Cosmetic Dentists Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions – Dr. Ka-Ron Wade
1. What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are fabricated in a dental laboratory. They are placed
over the front, or facial surface of teeth to create a gorgeous, natural looking smile. Porcelain veneers can
be used to correct crowded teeth, discolored teeth, teeth that are too long or too short, gaps between teeth
and virtually any other cosmetic problems associated with teeth. The original teeth are shaped by the
dentist to accommodate the placement of the veneers. Temporary veneers, which look gorgeous, are worn
by the patient for a few weeks while the real veneers are being made at the lab. Porcelain Veneers rarely
stain, chip, break or come off. They are very strong and should last many, many years, and possibly
forever. They feel natural in the mouth. Normally, only a few visits are needed to create a beautiful smile
with porcelain veneers.
2. What happens during the porcelain veneers procedure?
When you get porcelain veneers, you should be aware that they are not reversible. Your natural teeth will
not look the same once you get veneers. If the veneers were removed from your natural teeth, you would
not like the way that your natural teeth would look. When you get veneers, your natural teeth will first have
enamel removed from them in order to place on the veneers. This can make your teeth more sensitive to
hot and cold drinks. This reaction can be temporary or permanent depending on the person. For more
information on porcelain veneers as well as teeth whitening, dental implants, and other dental treatment
options, we encourage you to visit our Houston cosmetic dentistry office.
3. What is the cost of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be somewhat expensive, but patients who have had the procedure feel it was worth
the cost. Having a gorgeous smile greatly improves one's confidence and self-esteem. Each case is
different, and the cost will vary with the complexity of the case.
