Dental veneers – also known as laminates – are used to protect and cosmetically enhance the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that are customized for a desirable color, size and shape. They are bonded to the surface of the teeth to reshape broken, misshapen or irregular teeth, as well as provide a solution for discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments. Patients with veneers typically achieve a natural tooth appearance that is well-tolerated by the gums and also resistant to future stains. Dr. Madden has many examples of her veneers on the Before and After Gallery. Year after year, Dr. Madden is voted the Top Dentist in Houston for her high quality veneer services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for dental veneers or laminates in the Houston, Texas area?
Dental veneers may be right for you if you are looking for an alternative to crowns and caps. Veneers can help you if you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken, chipped, irregularly shaped or misaligned. To find out more about whether dental veneers are right for you, contact our Madden Dental office to schedule a consultation.
What should I expect when I get my dental veneers at Dentist in Bellaire, Texas?
Before dental veneers can be placed on the teeth, the surface of the teeth must be prepared for bonding. After administering a local anesthetic, Dr. Madden will buff away approximately half a millimeter from the surface of the teeth. You’ll then bite into a mold that will be used to form your veneers in a dental lab. When the veneers are ready, you’ll be asked to return to have them fitted, bonded and adjusted to deliver an ideal bite and esthetic result.
Will I need to follow any post-treatment care instructions?
There is no special care required for dental veneers, and normal brushing and flossing can be resumed immediately. Dr. Madden recommends that patients wear a night guard to protect the beautiful dental investment.
