Porcelain Veneers in River Oaks


Woman smiles as she talks to dentistEvery day, our team creates beautiful, natural-looking smiles with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain that are shaped and placed over your teeth to improve their appearance in every way. Porcelain veneers can correct any number of problems, including chipped teeth, stained and discolored teeth, spaces between teeth, crooked teeth, and poorly-shaped teeth.

A New Smile in a Single Day with Veneers in Houston

This means that you can potentially leave our office with a brand new smile in just a matter of hours. Depending on your comfort level and schedule, however, it may take two visits. In either case, a gorgeous smile can be yours quickly and efficiently with minimal hassle.

The process involves meeting with Dr. John Krell to discuss the suitability of veneers for your current condition. If it turns out that you are a good candidate for them and you decide to move forward, your teeth will be lightly buffed and shaped to account for the veneer's thickness. Your doctor will then take impressions of your teeth and design and mill your custom porcelain veneers in the office. We do this in-house, allowing for same-day veneers if desired.

From there, your teeth will be cleaned with a special liquid that helps facilitate the bonding process. Your doctor will then apply the veneers to your teeth using bonding cement and an expert touch. Light is then applied to harden and set the bond. The entire process can be performed without the use of anesthesia. There's minimal discomfort and no downtime needed. Veneers are extremely durable and can last many years before needing to be replaced.
