Crowns & Veneers

Deciding to make cosmetic improvements to your smile is exciting, but you could have a number of questions. At Nederland Family Dental, we will discuss your smile with you and help develop a treatment plan that meets your aesthetic goals.

One of the easiest and most dramatic ways to improve your smile is with porcelain veneers. Veneers effectively improve some of the most common cosmetic flaws with your smile. Veneers improve stained, worn, chipped, crooked, and oddly shaped teeth without the need of orthodontics or other lengthy procedures.

Veneers are thin, porcelain, shell-like covers that fit directly over your natural tooth structure. They cover your old smile with a new, more beautiful smile. Veneers are perfect for people who have cosmetic flaws but do not wish to prolong treatment with many different procedures such as orthodontics, bonding, whitening, and crowns. Dental veneers address all of those conditions in just a few short visits. Once you have an evaluation from G. Whitney Gomez DDS, we can go over your options and answer all of your questions.

Naturally, we want you to feel completely comfortable with your entire procedure, so we will make sure we talk to you about all of our options.

We know our patients are busy. Depending on the number of veneers you need, we could help you have a brand new smile in as few as two visits.

In order to make room for your new porcelain veneers, we need to prep the surface of your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. This step is necessary for a couple of reasons. First, we need to fit your veneers over your natural tooth structure. Second, it eliminates a bulky or boxy look. Your veneers will look completely natural and complement your smile.

We work with a highly skilled dental lab that utilizes computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing in order to ensure a proper fit for your veneers. Until we receive your permanent restorations back from our lab, we will place you in temporaries to keep your teeth comfortable until your permanent custom veneers are ready.

When we receive your permanent veneers, we will bond them to your natural tooth structure. With proper care and routine preventative appointments, your veneers can last decades.

Complete Smile Makeovers

Some patients want to change everything about their smiles. Complete smile makeovers are a perfect place to utilize porcelain veneers. We custom design each veneer by paying attention to details such as color, shading, size, shape, and length of your veneers. We can work together to achieve a smile that matches your facial features.
