Porcelain Veneer Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What are porcelain veneers?

Answer: Veneers are thin shells of special dental porcelain. Your veneers will be custom-made by an expert ceramist using impressions of your teeth. Once completed, your Houston TX cosmetic dentist will check the fit and apply your veneers using a powerful bonding agent.

Question: Do veneers look natural?

Answer: Yes. Porcelain mimics the translucent properties of tooth enamel. Furthermore, the veneers will be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile. The result is a restoration that looks completely natural.

Question: What issues can porcelain veneers address?

Answer: Porcelain veneers enable Dr. Gennero to mask permanent teeth stains, correct the appearance of dental misalignment, repair cracked or chipped teeth, close gaps between teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and reshape malformed or damaged teeth.

Question: How long to porcelain veneers last?

Answer: With proper care, porcelain veneers can provide decades of smile restoration. Simply care for your veneers as you would your natural teeth:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Floss your teeth once a day
  • Attend routine checkups and cleanings
  • Avoid foods and drinks high in sugar and other starches

Following these simple steps helps protect your smile and your new restoration, cleansing your mouth of harmful bacteria and stray food particles.
