Porcelain veneers are thin facings of tooth-colored porcelain that slip over a tooth to improve its appearance. At Kristi Alexander, DDS we use these veneers as one of the most effective ways to cover imperfections such as chips, permanent stains and even crooked teeth. As your Fair Oaks dentist, Dr. Alexander will begin by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel so that the veneer can be more easily bonded to the tooth. Once this is completed Dr. Alexander will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory where the veneers are produced. At your next appointment the newly created veneers will be bonded into place. Dr. Alexander uses a high quality tooth colored porcelain that is valued for both its beauty and durability.
