Dentistry is an art
When choosing a dentist to perform your cosmetic services, it is imperative that you choose a dentist with experience who cares about you as a patient and is willing to go the extra mile to meet your needs. Especially with a treatment such as veneers and crowns, there is a strong artistic component required to make the best, most natural looking restorations. With her experience as a professor at Baylor College of Dentistry, and through her continuing education, Dr. Shirey has studied many different ways of performing these procedures, and is highly skilled in every aspect of these procedures. She also works side-by-side with only the best master ceramists at her preferred dental labs in order to achieve amazing results.
A quality dental lab is an essential element to a permanently beautiful smile.
In addition to the artistry and skill of the dentist, a key element to a long-lasting beautiful smile is the lab who fabricates the veneers/crowns. We work with only the best dental labs whose master ceramists have decades of experience. They can come on-site to custom shade your veneers or crowns to match your smile perfectly. We only choose ceramists who use microscopes while completing their work to make they capture every detail to prevent any gaps between the veneer/crown and the tooth (the margin) where food and bacteria can trap. This approach, at times, requires a bit more time than standard approach, but the restoration will last much longer, and prevent future problems such as gum disease and dental decay.
Dental veneers can be used alone, or in conjunction with other cosmetic services, such as whitening or Invisalign®. If a patient has deep staining, misshapen teeth, excess crowding or spacing, we will consider placing veneers to create a radiant smile!
In short, veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are permanently bonded to the teeth to create the beautiful smile a patient is seeking. At your first visit we will discuss with you the benefits and risks of treatment with veneers, and any other options for your smile to determine the option that best suits your needs. We offer a service called a “wax up” to allow you to see the final outcome prior to undergoing any treatment. If you decide veneers are right for you, we will proceed with the placement of veneers. This usually requires two to three visits to complete. At the first treatment visit, we will shape the tooth structure in order to make room for the ceramic and decide if temporary acrylic veneers are needed. After the lab fabricates your new custom smile, we will bring you in to bond the veneers in place. During all phases, we work closely with you and love hearing all of your feedback to know how we can best serve you. Call today to schedule your complimentary cosmetic consultation!
