If you are thinking about making cosmetic changes to your smile but do not want to undergo an extensive or invasive procedure, veneers may be the right choice for you. These custom-made, thin shells are simply attached to the front of the teeth to change their appearance. We are proud to offer this treatment at Afroz Burges DDS, PA in Pearland, TX.
Veneers are very thin shells that are bonded onto the front of the teeth. Because they only cover one side of a tooth, unlike dental crowns that cover the entire tooth, veneers require a very small amount of tooth structure to be removed, allowing you to retain as much natural tooth structure as possible. They can be made out of porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain is often preferred, because it is more resistant to stains and looks more natural, but your dentist will discuss your options with you before selecting the material.
Dental veneers are a popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry because they are very versatile and can be used to effectively treat a number of issues but are still affordable. Veneers can be placed to change the appearance of:
The procedure to have veneers placed will take two separate appointments to our dentistry near you in Pearland, TX to complete. The goal of the first visit is to prepare the teeth receiving veneers. This will consist of removing a small amount of tooth enamel from the teeth to create enough room for the veneer to fit. Your dentist at Afroz Burges DDS, PA, will then make an impression of these prepared teeth and place temporary veneers on. A dental laboratory will use the impression to create the veneers, which usually take 2 to 4 weeks to complete. You will return to our office once the completed veneers have returned to have them bonded onto the prepared teeth.
