Houston Veneers

If you have a tooth or teeth that are cosmetically damaged, you may well be able to have this smile problem corrected by getting porcelain veneers. Many patients come to our dental practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS, to get Houston veneers or to have other tooth restorations performed; our two top-notch dentists are Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn and Dr. Russell R. Hilliard.

Houston veneers are used to fix many different types of cosmetic tooth problems. Our veneers are actually thin porcelain shells which are made to permanently attach to the front of teeth, and will only cover the front of the tooth. A patient can have either one or several dental veneers, depending on the tooth problem being corrected. Our dentist uses porcelain veneers to provide patients with beautiful, as standing smiles. If our dentist determines upon exam that your tooth is also damaged and needs to be strengthened to improve its function, he may instead recommend that you get a dental crown; this is because porcelain veneers can only be used to correct cosmetic dental problems. Porcelain veneers can effectively fix teeth that: have uneven gaps between them; are too short; are misshapen; are chipped; are slightly uneven; have surface cracks in the enamel; are discolored and cannot be corrected using traditional whitening methods; and many other different cosmetic dental issues. The porcelain veneers will perfectly color-match adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell you have them. Porcelain veneers are a cost-effective way to fix many different types of cosmetic smile problems, and often can be applied to the patient’s teeth without the patient even needing any type of local anesthesia. Your veneers will look like your natural teeth and are resistant to staining.

If you need to have a tooth restored with a dental crown, but do not relish the thought of having to return for several dental visits, you will want to learn more about CEREC crowns at our dental practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS. This procedure is a way for patients to get same-day crowns from our 77035 CEREC dentist. Just one of our expert dentists is Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn.

At our dental practice, we offer both porcelain restorations and 77035 CEREC crowns for patients who need to have a tooth restored or strengthened. CEREC crowns can also be used to simply improve the look of a tooth. However, crowns are very often used as a way to strengthen a tooth that has too many fillings in it and may be on the verge of cracking, or as a way to restore a tooth after a root canal procedure is performed. While a porcelain crown can take several trips to the dentist’s office, CEREC crowns are created and installed in one single short visit to our dental practice. CEREC is an exciting technology that is used to restore damaged teeth. The CEREC crown will also keep your smile looking natural. No one will be able to tell that you have a CEREC crown in your mouth, as it will be made to perfectly match the adjacent teeth. This type of restoration is metal free and made of high-grade ceramic material; it is fully compatible with the natural tissues in your mouth. Your individual CEREC crown will be created by our dentist who will use a 3-D imaging camera along with CEREC’s software. A machine at our office will create your actual restoration from a single piece of ceramic. Our dentists will then bond the CEREC restoration to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry materials. You will not need to return to our office for any follow-up visits regarding this particular procedure.

If you would like to make an appointment so that you too can receive a same-day 77035 CEREC crown, contact us today.
