Porcelain Veneers from a Houston Cosmetic Dentistry Practice in Houston, TX
When having veneers placed in our Houston cosmetic dentistry practice, your first visit will include an evaluation, in which you can discuss the issues you would like him to address. On your second visit, your teeth will be reshaped to accommodate the .5 millimeter shells that will be bonded to the surface of your teeth. Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Ramirez will take an impression from which your porcelain veneers will be custom created.
On your final visit to our Houston cosmetic dentistry practice, we will clean and etch your natural teeth to enhance the bond of your porcelain veneers. The thin shells are adhered with dental cement that is hardened using a special dental light. This enables us to control the speed of the process, thereby allowing time to perfectly align your porcelain veneers.
