Correct Smile Flaws With Durable, Pain-Free Veneers

Veneers don't just improve your smile, they provide several health benefits. Veneers are made of thin pieces of either porcelain or composite resin. Their versatile design corrects multiple smile issues quickly and effectively. Not to mention, the procedure is minimally invasive.

At A Beautiful Smile at Lake Pointe located in Sugarland, TX,  Dr. Lance Jue specializes in customizing veneers to fit your mouth perfectly. Do you want to fix cosmetic and non-cosmetic issues while keeping natural teeth intact? Achieving a smile you can be proud of is as simple as electing veneers as an option for treatment.

What are veneers?

Veneers can help you recreate the look and feel of your natural teeth. They're made to bond seamlessly to existing teeth and provide a long-lasting, highly-effective solution to several dental issues. 

Veneers are made of a thin porcelain shell that's great for hiding unsightly discoloration or chips in your teeth. The porcelain offers a stain-free solution that comfortably fits the shape of your mouth.

Dental veneers address these common concerns:

Take your smile from dull and disfigured to beautiful and completely functional.

What to expect?

During your initial visit, you should discuss your goals with Dr. Jue. He'll determine the right process for you. He'll evaluate whether or not you're a good candidate for the procedure before assessing which type of veneer best suits your needs. Veneers are customized in a dental lab using a mold of your teeth where they're made to fit your mouth exactly.

During your next appointment, Dr. Jue will cleanse your teeth. This will keep bacteria from becoming trapped underneath the veneer. Once the veneer arrives, the doctor will adjust it to fit your mouth. The veneer bakes in a kiln-like oven until it hardens, matching the natural shade of your teeth. Appling a binding cement to the veneer, Dr. Jue uses ultraviolet light to harden it in place.

Dr. Jue then removes excess cement and evaluates your bite for any necessary adjustments. Once it’s set in place, you’re free to return home. Veneers are made to last between seven and 15 years. Keep in mind, you should visit our office for biannual check-ups to maintain your results and ensure you stay healthy. 

After-care and recovery 

There's no downtime for veneers, and you can eat and drink as normal following your procedure. Daily actives aren't made difficult by adverse side effects, which means you can enjoy your new smile right away. 

Excess cement that remains wears off with regular brushing and flossing. Along with keeping to a regular dental hygiene routine, you must schedule biannual check-ups with Dr. Jue to extend the life of your veneers. 

Additionally, you should avoid certain foods like coffee, which are known to cause stains. Chewing on hard objects or grinding your teeth at night could diminish veneers, making them fragile over time. If you play sports, always use the proper mouthguard and try to eat with your front teeth instead of the back teeth. Following these guidelines can help you maintain your results for as long as possible.
