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.
Veneers can be used to fix the following problems:
Crooked and misshapen teeth
Severe discoloration or staining
Teeth that are too small or large
Gaps or unwanted spaces
The benefits of porcelain veneers include:
Long-lasting, natural-looking results
Correction of dental flaws and restored function
Resistance to stains
Complete customization for your mouth
Relatively quick, minimally invasive procedure
All-natural materials are used
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.
