Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve their appearance. They can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials and are bonded to the front of the teeth. At Harmony Dental in Pearland and Pasadena, TX, we offer porcelain veneers and Lumineers to correct minor imperfections in your smile.
Veneers are a good option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed, or crooked teeth. They can also be used to fix teeth with gaps between them or teeth that are worn down. Dental veneers are durable, and with the proper care, can provide a beautiful smile for many years.
The placement of veneers typically takes two office visits. Local anesthesia is not usually needed when placing veneers, though it can be used if a patient is particularly sensitive.
Like dental veneers, Lumineers can be applied to fix problems such as large gaps between the teeth, misaligned teeth, or stained teeth. However, they have additional advantages in that they last longer (over 20 years), and are thinner, so that little alteration needs to be done to the tooth, and the treatment is reversible.
