Enjoy a Flawless Smile with Veneers

Dental veneers are a simple yet transformative solution for various cosmetic dental issues. These thin, custom-made shells are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, improving their appearance in terms of color, shape, and overall look. At Laughlin Dental, our veneers are meticulously crafted to match the natural color and shape of your teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance.

Veneers are an ideal solution for addressing a range of dental concerns, including:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misaligned or uneven teeth
  • Discolored teeth

During your consultation, we will thoroughly evaluate your dental health and discuss your aesthetic goals. Whether it's veneers, teeth whitening, or crowns, we're here to find the right solution for you.

This meticulous approach is part of our commitment to delivering results that not only meet but exceed your expectations.

Your Journey to a Stunning Smile

Dr. Lloyd Laughlin and his dedicated team in Pasadena, TX, are committed to ensuring that every step of your veneer treatment is as smooth and comfortable as possible. Here's what you can expect during your veneer journey at Laughlin Dental:

1. Initial Consultation

Understanding Your Goals: Your journey begins with a personal consultation. Dr. Laughlin will discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations to determine if veneers are the right choice for you.

Comprehensive Evaluation: A thorough examination of your teeth is conducted to assess your oral health and suitability for veneers. This may include taking X-rays or dental impressions.

2. Custom Treatment Planning

Designing Your Smile: Using the information gathered during the initial consultation, Dr. Laughlin will craft a custom treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Previewing Your Smile: In some cases, we may use digital technology or physical models to give you a preview of what your smile could look like with veneers.

3. Preparing Your Teeth

Minimal Tooth Alteration: To prepare for veneer placement, a small amount of enamel is gently removed from the front surface of your teeth. This ensures a flush fit for the veneers.

Taking Impressions: After tooth preparation, we take a 3D digital scan of your teeth to create your custom veneers.

4. Creating Your Veneers

Crafting With Precision: Your digital scans are sent to a dental lab where your veneers are meticulously crafted. We use only the highest quality materials to ensure durability and a natural appearance.

Immediate Enhancement: While your custom veneers are being created, temporary veneers may be placed to protect your prepared teeth and provide an immediate aesthetic improvement.

5. Final Placement of Veneers

Ensuring Perfect Fit: Once your custom veneers are ready, you'll return to our office. Dr. Laughlin will meticulously place each veneer, making any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and optimal aesthetics.

Bonding for a Lasting Smile:
After confirming the fit and appearance, the veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth, instantly transforming your smile.

6. Follow-Up Care

Ensuring Satisfaction: A follow-up appointment may be scheduled to ensure your comfort and satisfaction with your new veneers.

Continued Care Guidance: Dr. Laughlin will provide you with advice on caring for your veneers, including maintaining good oral hygiene practices and scheduling regular dental checkups.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of veneers, and are they covered by insurance?

The cost of veneers varies depending on the number of teeth being treated and the type of veneers used. Most cosmetic procedures, including veneers, are not typically covered by dental insurance. However, we offer various financing options to make the treatment accessible.

Will my veneers look like natural teeth?

Yes, veneers are crafted to mimic the look of your natural teeth closely. They can be shaped and colored to match your surrounding teeth, ensuring a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Can anyone get veneers?

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for veneers. Patients with healthy teeth and gums are typically good candidates, while those with conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, or root canal infection may need treatment for these issues first.

Is the veneer procedure painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the veneer procedure. Local anesthesia can be used during the preparation phase to ensure comfort.

How many appointments are needed for veneer treatment?

Typically, veneer treatment at Laughlin Dental involves at least two visits – one for consultation and tooth preparation and another for veneer placement. Additional visits may be necessary for follow-ups and adjustments.

Do veneers require special care?

Veneers do not require special care beyond good oral hygiene practices. It's important to continue brushing and flossing daily and to visit your dentist regularly. However, avoiding hard foods and not using your teeth as tools can help prolong their lifespan.

How long do dental veneers last?

On average, porcelain veneers can last between 10 to 15 years, and composite resin veneers last around 5 to 7 years, depending on your oral hygiene and care.

Are veneers a permanent solution?

Veneers are considered a semi-permanent dental procedure. While they are permanently bonded to your teeth, they may need to be replaced after several years due to wear and tear.

How do veneers improve a smile?

Veneers can address various cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Teeth that are discolored or stained.
  • Worn down, chipped, or broken teeth.
  • Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth.
  • Teeth with gaps between them.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They improve the appearance of your smile by altering the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth. Veneers are typically made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are permanently bonded to your teeth.
