Do you have the desire to change the color, shape, size, or length of your stubborn, unattractive tooth? If so, our team at the dental practice of Dr. Alan J. White, D.D.S. is thrilled to give you the option of using dental veneers!
Dental veneers in Staunton, Virginia, are wafer-thin, customized products that disguise the imperfections of your tooth to improve its appearance. They are made to cover the front surface of your tooth and to reshape and recreate your tooth into your desired appearance. They also have the ability to:
- Correct teeth that are discolored
- Rejuvenate teeth that are worn down
- Fix teeth that are broken
- Restore teeth that are chipped
- Align teeth that are misaligned
- Reshape teeth that are irregularly shaped
- Correct teeth that are uneven
- Fill the gaps that lie between your teeth
The process involved in placing the veneer begins with your dentist numbing your tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Then, he will shave the surface of your tooth to allow room for the veneer. When the tooth is the right size and shape, your dentist will take the measurements needed to create your dental veneer. When the product is made, he will make the needed adjustments to the veneer and then will permanently cement it into place.

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, close to 37,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Oral cancer will cause over 8,000 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. The main reason for these grim statistics, is not because oral cancer is hard to diagnose, but because it is diagnosed too late-when it is in its advanced stages. As your dentist, I am dedicating myself to do everything that I possibly can to reduce these alarming oral cancer statistics one patient at a time. That’s why I recently invested in a new, advanced screening device that will enable me and my team to perform a detailed oral exam on our adult patients with far more accuracy than we ever could in the past. The device, which is called Identafi, is about the size of a power tooth brush, and uses three different wavelengths of light to help detect any suspicious areas in the mouth that would be impossible for us to see with our naked eyes. These suspicious areas, upon further evaluation, are usually benign, but I think you’ll agree that it’s always better to be safe than sorry. During your next hygiene examine will be performing a thorough Identafi examination and we will gladly answer any and all questions. If it has been a while since your last appointment, I recommend that you schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.
