Porcelain Veneers

Canyon Lakes Dentistry
Dr. Tito Molina

Porcelain veneers are a new covering on the entire tooth surface. It may be easiest to consider porcelain veneers in a similar way to false nails. A porcelain veneer is a thin piece of custom porcelain explicitly designed for your mouth and glued in place. Porcelain Veneers are considered conservative because there is very little need for any modification of your teeth, and most of your original tooth structure will remain intact.

Our dental laboratory can manufacture porcelain veneers to the exact specifications you require. We can match almost any contour, shape, or shade, and your porcelain veneers will not yellow or fade over time. Just like with any dental restoration, there is a chance that porcelain veneers become weak or chip over time. Still, most patients can safely bite into apples, corn cobs, steaks, or ribs without any problems. This is a beautiful way to make a perfect smile. Porcelain veneers can also improve the shadow and shape of teeth.

If your teeth are discolored or damaged, or there are gaps between the teeth you want to close, porcelain veneers are incredible. Porcelain veneers are not suitable for everyone, and there are some limitations in finishing. Before we determine the correct treatment for you, we are happy to discuss more available treatments with you.

Porcelain veneers usually require two appointments in our office. After numbing you, we prepare veneers for your teeth and send the impression of your teeth to the dental laboratory. Usually, it takes two weeks for the laboratory to make your porcelain veneer, so we will make an acrylic veneer for you to temporarily use until you finish the porcelain veneer are ready to place it. On the second date, we will carefully check the correct fit, shadow, and veneer’s shape. We take off the acrylic veneer and glue the porcelain veneer to your teeth. You don’t need to be numb for the second appointment. Usually, you can eat with the veneer immediately.

Besides being the top provider of Porcelain Veneers in Katy, TX, we also offer dental implantssleep apnea treatmentInvisalign, cosmetic dentistry, and a wide range of additional dental services.
