Porcelain veneers can make a dramatic difference in a person’s smile. After only a few office visits at the Texas Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, you’ll walk away with a set of porcelain veneers that can conceals flaws and provide a beautiful smile. Our board-certified Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Guy M. Lewis and his team of dental professionals provide patients in The Woodlands, Houston, TX and surrounding communities with porcelain veneers by DaVinci Laboratories.

Porcelain veneers are among the most advanced cosmetic dentistry treatments available. Veneers are tiny porcelain shells designed to conceal flaws, such as cracks, chips, discoloration, gaps and crookedness, by bonding to the front surfaces of natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can transform a smile in just two office visits. They are stain-resistant and custom-crafted to complement the unique beauty of each patient’s smile. When placed by a talented cosmetic dentist and maintained properly, porcelain veneers provide you with a long-lasting smile.

"My upper teeth were small with gaps between them. I wanted a more cosmetically pleasant smile, but was hesitant of having any dental procedures done. With a family reunion approaching, I worked up the courage to call Dr. Guy Lewis. I chose Dr. Lewis because I had read he was a pioneer in the field of cosmetic dentistry and was considered the best in this business. From my experience at his office, I found that to be true. Dr. Lewis and his staff are very professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. They answered all my questions and relieved my fears. Dr. Lewis recommended veneers for me and I can honestly say that the whole procedure was relatively easy and uncomplicated. Within a few visits, the veneers were attached and in place. The results were amazing, even life changing. I now have a beautiful smile and with that, added self confidence. My daughters, who are super critical, say that I look 10 years younger. Even strangers comment on my gorgeous smile. Thank you Dr. Lewis and staff for taking such good care of me."- L.S. / Google / Jul 22, 2016
"Over the years, I have complimented a few friends on their beautiful smile not knowing they were veneers. Coincidentally, they each shared Dr. Guy Lewis was the artist who transformed their smile so it appeared so natural. I finally decided to pull the trigger and get it done. It has really been a huge boost to my confidence and I wish I had done it sooner. Dr. Lewis is a very talented artist and is a perfectionist. I also appreciate that he is a good Christian doctor. He is very warm and friendly and I now consider him a friend for life. He has a first class office and support staff."- S.S. / Google / Dec 22, 2016

For traditional porcelain veneers, our dentist begins by administering a local anesthesia. When the numbing has taken effect, he then gently removes a small portion of the enamel so the teeth can accommodate the width of the veneer. Next, he makes a mold of the teeth and mouth to send to the dental laboratory. There, a lab technicians will use this mold to custom-craft the veneers. Finally, Dr. Lewis will place temporary veneers, which the patient will wear until the porcelain ones are ready (usually about one week). At this point, you will return to our office for a second visit to have the veneers placed. Dr. Lewis will begin this visit by administering local anesthesia before removing the temporary veneers. He will then bond the porcelain veneers to the teeth and buff them to a shine.
Do Veneers Stain?
Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains, however the veneers are partially transparent so if the natural teeth are stained this could result in a blotchy, discolored smile. Veneers will also stain if the patient does not brush their teeth regularly.
Covered By Insurance?
Since dental veneers are considered a cosmetic and not restorative or preventative service, most patients will not be covered by their dental insurance. Our office works with patients to provide payment plans and options to fit their needs and budget.
Veneers Special Care?
Much like the natural teeth, it is important to maintain a regular dental hygiene regimen to keep a porcelain veneers looking beautiful. Although there are no special care instructions for veneers, patients are encouraged to schedule routine dental exams and cleanings in additional to brushing, flossing, and maintaining a healthy diet.
