Are You Considering Porcelain Veneers?

Does your smile need an upgrade?

Porcelain veneers may be the right solution for you. Porcelain veneers are a common cosmetic dentistry treatment used to improve the aesthetic and function of your smile. If you have damaged teeth due to trauma, decay, or any other dental concerns, porcelain veneers can restore your natural smile and give you the results you’ve always wanted. Receiving porcelain veneers is a detailed process that should only be performed by an experienced, highly trained dentist.

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Eddie Pruitt has undergone extensive training to stay up to date on the latest techniques and procedures in dentistry. Dr. Pruitt has over 35 years of dentistry experience creating and designed beautiful, functional smiles. If you would like to know if porcelain veneers are right for you, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Pruitt at our Houston, TX dental office.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are made of high-quality ceramic and cover the front and sides of the affected tooth for a natural and highly durable result.

Dental veneers can be used to treat:

  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Chips, cracks or fractures in teeth
  • Mishappen teeth

Are porcelain veneers permanent?

Dr. Pruitt can design custom-made porcelain veneers. Porcelain ceramic is an extremely durable material that can last many years with proper care. Porcelain ceramic is resistant to tooth decay and many types of stains. Patients should take care of their porcelain veneers as if they are their natural teeth.

How are porcelain veneers done?

Dr. Pruitt may need to remove a small amount of surface structure from the affected teeth. Molds of the teeth are taken to ensure a proper and compatible fit. Once the molds are completed, your molds are sent to a special lab. Depending on your needs, Dr. Pruitt may provide a temporary veneer while your custom made veneers are created.

Once your porcelain veneers are completed, Dr. Pruitt will carefully adhere them to the front and sides of your teeth. Dr. Pruitt will make any necessary adjustment to your porcelain veneers to make sure they are comfortable and blend with your natural smile. Patients should care for their new veneers just as they would care for their teeth.
