About Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers can bring back an attractive smile by correcting certain visible flaws, such as stains, chips, cracks, tiny gaps, and more concerns. Slender, custom-designed shells that go over the exterior enamel of the patient’s teeth, porcelain veneers produce an effortless, dazzling smile. Porcelain veneers are strong, however still slender enough to be semi-transparent, which helps the dental veneers to blend in with the natural teeth. Having porcelain veneers crafted by our dentists at Waterside Dental Care in Richmond, TX is a fast, straightforward procedure to conceal many cosmetic imperfections and design a renovated, healthy smile.

"I have been a new patient for about one month and have had three appts in that time. After my initial exam and X-ray I went back for my cleaning and one cavity. About two weeks later I had a Torus Mandibular erupt through the gum, rough boney protrusion, during the weekend. I called first thing Monday morning and the dentist was able to see me later that day. The problem was taken care at that time. The reception staff has been very nice and polite. The Dentist and her dental assistants are also very friendly and professional. I have no complaints."- M.S. / Yelp / Sep 30, 2019
What to Expect
To start the procedure of creating the custom-fit porcelain veneers our dentists will find space for the porcelain veneer by taking away a paper-thin layer of enamel from every tooth that is going to be attached to the porcelain veneer. When the teeth have been made ready, our dentists need to take a digital image of the teeth, which will be used to craft the custom-fit porcelain veneers in a dental laboratory. An interim veneer will be used to cover the teeth until the permanent porcelain veneers are returned to Waterside Dental Care in Richmond, TX. The custom-fit porcelain veneers will be bonded to the front of the teeth using a special resin bonding agent. Our dentists may alter the porcelain veneers if needed to give the patient a snug fit.
An additional appointment is usually made for approximately one week after the porcelain veneers are attached to make certain the bond is tight and the finish is still comfortable. Dental veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural teeth, but to preserve the porcelain veneers in their best condition, our dentists suggest staying away from staining food and beverages, such as soda, tea, coffee, and red wine. Patients are advised to start or continue to keep a good home dental care routine, including daily brushing using a non-abrasive toothpaste, daily flossing, and making appointments with our dentists for professional cleanings and dental exams at Waterside Dental Care. With appropriate care, porcelain veneers may stay on for up to two decades.
Dental veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, and it is typically not covered under dental insurance. Though, Waterside Dental Care in Richmond, TX takes numerous payment methods, along with our dentists and the staff at Waterside Dental Care can aid patients with financing arrangements to make porcelain veneers within each patient's means.
