Our board-certified Cosmetic Dentist at the Texas Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Guy M. Lewis, is the innovator of the No-Prep G. Lewis veneers. Dr. Lewis designed these veneers in his office in The Woodlands, TX to provide quicker aesthetic results with a fit unparalleled by other types of no-prep porcelain veneers. Instead of Invisalign® or laser teeth whitening, our No-Prep G. Lewis veneers can quickly conceal dental problems, including teeth that are slightly discolored, chipped, cracked, misshapen, or separated by gaps. His success is evident in the smiles of patients from the greater Houston, TX area and nearby Texas communities, who have received a smile makeover with No-Prep G. Lewis veneers. The distinctive construction of the No-Prep G. Lewis veneer provides a treatment experience and smile makeover unparalleled by other types of no-prep dental veneers. The most significant benefit of the No-Prep G. Lewis veneers is that they do not require reduction of the tooth, which provides several advantages:
- Anesthesia usually not required
- Preservation of natural tooth structure
- No temporary veneer placement while the veneers are crafted
- Reduces the likelihood of gum problems associated with thicker no-prep veneers
- Blends in nicely with your other teeth for a natural-looking smile
- Durable and long-lasting cosmetic dentistry
To learn more about achieving a beautiful new smile with this remarkable option, we welcome you to schedule a consultation.
Traditional VS. No-Prep
Both traditional veneers and No-Prep G. Lewis veneers are designed for durability, superior aesthetic results, and 2-visit smile makeovers. Our dental practice recommends G. Lewis veneers instead of traditional veneers whenever possible, since they are superior, in many ways, to both traditional veneers and other no-prep porcelain veneers. Dr. Lewis chose ultra-thin, highly-translucent porcelain to craft the veneers. Therefore, the tooth will not need to be reduced or shaved down to accommodate the veneer. No-Prep G. Lewis veneers will also not add extra bulk to the teeth.

If you have delayed pursuing a smile makeover with porcelain veneers because you are worried about the placement process, consider No-Prep G. Lewis veneers. The process is remarkably comfortable, takes just 2 office visits, and provides a beautiful, luminous new smile. No-Prep G. Lewis veneers are bonded to the surface of the tooth without the need to shave down the enamel, which distinguishes them from traditional porcelain veneers. Placing Dr. Lewis’ No-Prep porcelain dental veneers requires 2 visits to our office:
During the first visit, our dental team will make a mold of the teeth and mouth. Unlike placement of traditional porcelain veneers, anesthesia is usually not necessary, the teeth are not reduced, and temporary veneers are not placed. We will send the mold to the dental laboratory that will craft the veneers.
When your No-Prep G. Lewis veneers are ready (usually in about a week), patients return to our office for their second visit to have the dental veneers placed. In this visit, the dentist will bond the veneers directly to the surface of your tooth, adjusts the fit, and buff them to a shine. The result is a luminous new smile that looks and feels indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Smile Makeover FAQs
Am I a Candidate?
Although Dr. Lewis recommends No-Prep G. Lewis Veneers when possible, traditional porcelain veneers may be the best option for some patients. If there are dark stains on the teeth, the thin porcelain used in G. Lewis Veneers may not adequately conceal the discoloration. For patients experiencing teeth protrusion, it may be necessary to reduce the teeth and place traditional veneers to avoid a bulky appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Lewis will determine whether you are a candidate for No-Prep G. Lewis Veneers.
Are They Stain-Resistant?
No-Prep G. Lewis veneers are stain-resistant, so they do not need to be touched up in the future. Patients, who have veneers placed on just the top or bottom teeth, may periodically whiten the natural teeth to keep them as bright as the veneers.
Are They Bulky?
The No-Prep G. Lewis veneers are designed to fit comfortably. These specific veneers avoid adding excess bulk to the teeth and reduce the likelihood of gum problems associated with thicker veneers.
