Could You Benefit from Veneers or Bonding?

Dr. Alrez can alter an otherwise imperfect smile with veneers or bonding. Veneers are made of ceramic and porcelain materials and are placed on your natural teeth to create a perfect-looking, white smile. In our Glen Mills office, she will likely recommend veneers along the front teeth that show when you smile. That way she can ensure an even, flawless smile.

Are You a Candidate for Veneers? 

Dental veneers are a perfect option for patients with chipped or fractured teeth, poorly shaped or crooked teeth, gaps between your teeth, and permanently stained teeth. They are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because they can dramatically improve your smile and appearance in a matter of two visits over approximately two weeks!

How are Veneers Placed?

In the old days, teeth would have to be ground down so that a metal cap can be placed over the tooth, and the porcelain is fused to the metal. The issue with this method is that it takes quite a bit of time to do it and because there needs to be space for both metal and porcelain the dentist is often forced to grind a perfectly good part of the tooth in order to fit the crown and the porcelain on top. Porcelain veneers using the old method also tend to chip and crack from time to time and need to be repaired or replaced.

New Veneer Technology 

Dr. Alrez is proud to offer the very latest in dental technology. When you choose Alrez Family Dentistry for veneers, you can feel confident that you are getting the best quality. We now offer a new type of veneer that uses Zirconia. Zirconia is less prone to chipping and cracking than the old method of making veneers. Zirconia also can be made much thinner than metal implants so there is usually less grinding that needs to be done.


Bonding is a fast, inexpensive solution for patients with all types of cosmetic dental issues. As with most cosmetic procedures, bonding will provide you with a happy, healthy smile you can feel confident about! And, it’s truly affordable and quick (just one visit!). Bonding can be used to do the following:

  • Close spaces
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Change the color of teeth
