Porcelain Veneers Overview
An excellent way to enhance your smile and hide discolored, stained, or chipped teeth is with porcelain veneers from the expert team at Made Ya Smile Dental. Veneers are an easy, effective, and minimally invasive process that transforms the teeth by covering up flaws such as uneven or gapped teeth. Made of thin, high-grade porcelain, these restorations are known to help patients achieve a confident, beautiful smile. Dr. Jireh Yue is proud to offer this personalized solution by choosing the ideal shape, size, and color of your veneers for the best results possible. To learn more about custom porcelain veneers, you can schedule a cosmetic consultation with our team in Houston, TX.
Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are made to match the shape, size, and enamel of your teeth to meet your cosmetic concerns. These restorations can mask small issues such as misshapen or uneven teeth, stains, slight misalignment, small gaps, and chipped or worn down biting edges. Veneers are usually placed in sets of two or more in the smile zone, custom made to fit over the front of your teeth. Since veneers require healthy teeth and gums to be successful, Made Ya Smile Dental may not recommend them if you habitually grind or clench your teeth (bruxism). After your consultation, Dr. Yue will design the veneers to match your smile, jaw, and facial appearance for a natural-looking, highly aesthetic result.
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
While the process to receive porcelain veneers is minimally invasive, our staff will administer a local anesthetic to make sure you feel at ease. Dr. Yue will begin by removing some of the enamel from the front surfaces and between the teeth where the porcelain veneers will be placed. This will ensure the veneers will fit comfortably and securely. We will then take impressions of your mouth to be sent to our special laboratory for fabrication. Made Ya Smile Dental uses professional-grade porcelain and high-quality materials to make your custom veneers. While you wait for the permanent restorations, we will provide you with a temporary solution for a couple of weeks to protect your teeth and maintain the function of your smile. Once your new veneers are in place, we may make some final adjustments, then polish the veneers for a smooth, bright finish.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
After your visit, you should be able to return to your daily routine as normal, since there is not much of a recovery period. If you received anesthetic, we ask that you wait to consume any meals until the feeling returns to your mouth. You may notice some tooth sensitivity to temperatures for several days, but this is normal and should resolve on its own. While porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and durable, it may be a good idea to minimize staining foods and beverages and avoid biting down on ice, pens, or other hard objects such as fingernails to protect the integrity of the restorations. Clean your new veneers just like your natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing so they can last for many years. At your annual examinations and bi-annual cleanings with Made Ya Smile Dental, we can assess the veneers and let you know if they need to be adjusted or replaced over time.
Porcelain Veneers Insurance Coverage
As a cosmetic procedure, porcelain veneers are typically not covered by most dental insurance plans. However, the financial staff at Made Ya Smile Dental will call your provider to learn more about your coverage and benefits as well as expenses. Before we start any treatment, we will review these costs with you along with several convenient payment plans, including low-interest financing. Our staff is dedicated to working alongside you to find the right financial solutions for your budget.
