North Houston Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Have you ever wished that you could transform your smile quickly and dramatically? Thanks to custom dental veneers, you can.
At North Houston Dentistry, we use cosmetic veneers to help people address aesthetic concerns like:
- Chipped, worn, or uneven front teeth
- Spacing concerns (such as gaps or crowding)
- Discoloration and severe tooth stain
- Self-consciousness about their smile’s appearance
Sometimes called “instant braces,” dental veneers are the quickest way to make your smile look straighter, whiter, and fuller than ever.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are a non-restorative treatment that allows us to change the appearance of healthy teeth. They’re used on the front teeth in your “smile zone,” that is, the ones that show the most during everyday social encounters. For some individuals, it’s six teeth; for others, it may be as many as 10-12.
Each veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that looks like a whole, healthy, straight tooth from the outside. We bond each veneer to the front of your individual teeth, immediately changing the way the look. Veneers only cover the front and edges of the treated tooth, but not the back (the way a full coverage crown would.) As such, we can only put veneers on healthy teeth that are free of active decay or gum disease.
Types of North Houston Veneers
At North Houston Dentistry we offer two types of dental veneers to choose from, depending on your smile’s anatomy and your individual goals.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers — Porcelain offers excellent aesthetic results, because of the way the material mimics natural tooth enamel. The color, hue, and translucency makes your new dental veneers look beautiful and natural.
During a traditional veneers treatment, our North Houston cosmetic dentist will need to slightly reduce the thickness of the enamel on your front teeth, so that the bonded restorations don’t look or feel bulky.
“No Prep” Lumineers — Lumineers are a reversible, drill-free dental veneers treatment. Since they’re ultra-thin, Dr. Bastani can bond them over the front of your visible teeth without reducing any of the enamel’s natural thickness. That means if you ever need to have them taken off, you won’t have to get new veneers made to cover your teeth.
Lumineers are slightly more affordable than porcelain designs, but not everyone qualifies for this particular procedure. The biggest factor will be the anatomy and width of the teeth that we’re treating, so a consultation is crucial.
Affording Your Smile Makeover
Cosmetic dentistry is generally considered an “elective” procedure, as it’s not used to treat or manage dental disease. That means it usually isn’t covered by your insurance plan. Fortunately, North Houston Dentistry offers flexible financing options so that you can start your smile makeover right away without breaking the bank. Thanks to low-interest and 0% financing, you can budget your treatment in an easy to afford manner.
