Dental Veneers

Read Transcript

Dental veneers are often called “instant orthodontics” because they make such a big smile improvement in such a short time! We offer three choices: Lumineers, prepless veneer, and top-of-the-line daVinci veneer.

Dental Veneers a great cosmetic dentistry option because they cover a variety of imperfections, including:

  • Chips
  • Minor cracks
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Our League City, TX dentist J. Derek Tieken, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, has years of experience working with dental veneer. To meet with him in our League City, TX dentist office and find out if veneer are right for you, call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at 281-942-6615.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Dental veneers correct some of the same issues as dental crowns. But unlike dental crowns, little alteration of your teeth is required. Thanks to Dr. Tieken’s expertise, we use two types of dental veneer – Lumineers and prepless veneer – that require practically no modification of your teeth.

In addition to keeping your teeth largely intact, benefits of dental veneers include:

  • No special care needed. Just brush and floss your teeth as usual.
  • They last a long time. With proper care, dental veneer should last several years, perhaps as long as 20 years.
  • You won’t even know they are there. Because they are so thin, you won’t even feel your veneers.

Dental Veneers Process

On your first visit to our League City, TX dentist office, Dr. Tieken matches the color of your natural teeth and takes photos and digital impressions. That information goes to an off-site lab, which creates your veneer.

About a week later, Dr. Tieken ensures they fit perfectly before securely bonding them to the front of your teeth. Depending on the type of dental veneers chosen, he may shave a tiny portion of enamel from your teeth first.


Lumineers are thin, porcelain veneer that are placed directly over the fronts of your teeth. There is little to no prep required, which means less discomfort for you! In fact, you won’t need to be numbed at all, which means no shots!

While most veneer require at least three visits to the dentist office, we can transform your smile with Lumineers in just two appointments! In addition to being easy to place, Lumineers are proven to last! Studies show that Lumineers can last for 20 years with no signs of discoloration.

Can Anyone Get Dental Veneers?

While dental veneers work well for most people, exceptions include those with teeth damaged by fractures, decay or large tooth fillings, those who do not have enough tooth enamel to support veneer, and those who grind their teeth.
