If the appearance of multiple teeth in your smile has been marred by chips, noticeable dental work, or significant, long-term staining issues, it likely leaves you feeling self-conscious. One of the most effective cosmetic treatments for issues like these is to have Dr. Teresa Cody fit each tooth in your smile with a dental veneer.

These custom-shaped porcelain shells are designed in a professional dental lab to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. They appear to look like healthy, scintillating white tooth enamel. As an added bonus, the porcelain material is not as receptive to staining foods and beverages. This will allow you to maintain a bright, white smile between dental cleanings.

Your dentist will first examine the teeth in your smile to make sure you have sufficient enamel to secure a veneer. If you have one or more teeth that have been compromised by a past filling or cavity, he might recommend restoring the tooth enamel with a porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Teresa Cody will then make a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This is sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.

When the veneers are ready, Dr. Teresa Cody will call you back in for a follow-up appointment.  Then, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the porcelain shell into place.

If you are struggling with an unappealing smile, you should call C & C Dental at 281-242-0241 to ask about porcelain dental veneers in Sugar Land, Texas.
