Veneers are thin yet durable pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made to match your natural smile in a professional dental laboratory.
Dr. Stacy Alston bonds the shell onto the front of your tooth, creating an aesthetically-pleasing and functional smile. Veneers can be used to completely reshape your teeth and smile or just a single tooth.
First, Dr. Alston will make an impression, or mold, of your prepared teeth. At this time, we’ll decide on the shade that suits you best. We send the impression to a dental lab that custom-makes the veneers to fit your teeth. This can take up to several days, and you may be given temporary veneers to wear in the meantime.
At your next visit, Dr. Alston will place the veneers on each tooth to check their fit and shape. After making any adjustments, the teeth are cleaned, and the veneers are bonded to the tooth.
Whether you’re looking to make minor adjustments or are looking to completely transform your look, veneers may be the best plan of action! So, contact our experienced dental team at Genesis Family Dentistry in Plaza Midwood to schedule an appointment.
