What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored, and tooth-shaped shells attached to the front of your teeth. They’re designed according to your specific cosmetic goals to transform the shape, size, color, or appearance of your natural teeth. While dental crowns provide a 360° cover for your teeth, dental veneers only cover the front face, so they’re only suitable for cosmetic concerns.
Dental Veneers can address:
- Permanently discolored teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Minor misalignment
- Crooked teeth
- Other cosmetic concerns
What are stain-resistant ceramic veneers?
Veneer makeovers in Houston are available in numerous materials, including porcelain and composite resin. However, Dr. Laya Omranian only provides high-quality ceramic or porcelain veneers because they look extremely natural. Porcelain has the same texture and translucency as natural enamel, and it also reflects light similarly. As such, your porcelain veneers look indistinguishable from natural teeth. Furthermore, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, so you don’t need to worry about discoloration and teeth whitening. Ceramic veneers can last for over a decade before needing replacements.
Are you a suitable candidate for dental veneers in Houston?
You’re a suitable candidate for dental veneers if you want to address multiple cosmetic concerns related to your teeth.
Dental Veneers can address at once:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Stained teeth
Dental veneers instantly transform the external appearance of your teeth.
However, dental veneers are only suitable for cosmetic problems. If you have moderate or severe misalignment, you’ll need to undergo orthodontic procedures, such as Invisalign. If you have severely damaged teeth, you’ll need fillings, crowns, or other forms of restoration. Dental veneers can only address cosmetic concerns that don’t otherwise involve any medical risks.
You should also note that dental veneers aren’t your only cosmetic option. You can also get teeth whitening, dental crowns, Invisalign aligners, and other cosmetic dental procedures. Dr. Laya Omranian will carefully examine your teeth, discuss your goals, review your overall oral health, and recommend the ideal cosmetic dentistry solutions for you.

What is the dental veneers process at Energy Dental?
The dental veneers Houston process usually involves two to three sessions, but we use cutting-edge technologies to perform the entire procedure in one session. Your dental veneer journey will start with a personalized consultation with our dentists. They will examine your teeth, discuss your goals, ensure you’re a suitable candidate for veneers, and take digital impressions of your teeth to ensure optimal results.
Dr. Laya Omranian will reshape your tooth surface — this involves shaving off some of the enamel from the front face of your teeth to accommodate the veneers. The amount of enamel removed generally corresponds to the thickness of the veneers. After removing the enamel, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to the dental laboratory to prepare the veneers.
We use cutting-edge CEREC technology to produce same-day ceramic veneers. Once the veneers are prepared, the dentist places them on your teeth to examine the fit, shape, and color. The dentist cleans, polishes, and etches your teeth, roughening up the surface for strong bonding. Finally, the ceramic veneers are attached to your teeth using dental cement. The dentist ensures you have a proper bite, following which you can leave.

Your Dental Veneers Questions Answered
Here are a few frequently asked questions about dental veneers:
What is the cost?
The cost of dental veneers varies, depending upon whether you are getting composite or porcelain, and how many teeth you want treated.
To learn the exact cost of your veneers, schedule a consultation with your Energy Dental provider.
Who is a candidate?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of chipped or stained teeth, you may want to cover up those flaws with dental veneers. Veneers are also popular among those getting smile makeovers.
What is the risk?
If you need to have some tooth enamel removed before the placement of your veneers, you should know that the process is irreversible.
Veneers are not a good treatment option for those with unhealthy gums or those who clench or grind their teeth.
How long do veneers last?
Veneers normally last anywhere from five to 10 years, although there are many people who find that they last significantly longer when properly cared for.
To ensure that your veneers last as long as possible, maintain your regular brushing and flossing routine and keep up with your routine dental cleaning appointments.
Are veneers painful?
Your dentist can numb your teeth before you receive your veneers. You should experience no pain during the treatment process.
If you are getting several veneers at once, you may experience some degree of temporary gum soreness that can be minimized using over-the-counter pain relievers.
