Orthodontic and Cosmetic Dentistry Services


You may already know that traditional porcelain veneers enhance a smile by concealing flawed teeth and conspicuous spaces, but did you know that existing teeth must be filed down before your dentist permanently applies the veneers? This drastic, irreversible procedure requires powerful anesthetic or oral sedation to control discomfort, but you will certainly feel some soreness after the application.

Only Lumineers by Cerinate take unnecessary pain out of the equation and allow you to enjoy your new smile immediately. These small wonders safely and effectively hide:

Thanks to Lumineers’ unique, ultra-thin design and application method, little, if any, tooth modification is required. Removing this preparatory step means that you won’t need anesthetic, and your dentist can get right to work improving your smile. Each Lumineer is carefully manufactured by the Cerinate Smile Design Studio just for you, using only the finest patented Cerinate porcelain. These long-lasting enhancements will rejuvenate your smile for up to 20 years!

In just one to three convenient office visits, your dentist can affix the remarkably thin yet durable porcelain shells directly to teeth for beautiful, instantaneous results. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are reversible because original tooth enamel is not reduced during application. The smile of your dreams has never been this easy!

Conservative dentistry is always the best choice, and with Lumineers, you don’t have to compromise your natural dentition for a spectacular smile. If you suffer with a less-than-perfect smile but are fearful of aesthetic dentistry, choose Lumineers for a glorious transformation without the inconvenience and distress of traditional veneers.

Minimal Prep Veneers

For some patients, smiling with complete confidence can only come with a smile makeover. That’s something Dr. Alani of Houston understands, and it explains why she offers a popular cosmetic service like minimal prep veneers. With minimal prep veneers, our Houston cosmetic dentistry team can help you hide chips, stains, gaps, and misaligned teeth, yielding beautiful results that also look completely natural.

Minimal prep veneers work the same way as traditional porcelain veneers but they’re thinner and require very little changes to your tooth enamel. Instead, minimal prep veneers can be affixed to the front of your front teeth as they are in just about two appointments. Because of this, they can also be removed later on if you ever want to return to your natural smile.

During your first visit with Dr. Alani at her Houston dental office, we’ll complete a thorough oral exam to find out how your smile is doing and to determine what your exact needs are. We’ll also talk to you about what kind of changes you’d like to make to your smile. Then, when we have a clear idea of your needs and wants, we’ll start designing your minimal prep veneers. Like traditional veneers, minimal prep veneers can be designed to match the shade and shape of your natural teeth.

When our lab has finished carefully crafting your personalized veneers, you’ll return to Dr. Alani’s Houston dental office to have them bonded. That’s all it takes to overcome a variety of issues that includes:

  1. Tooth stains
  2. Crooked teeth
  3. Chipped teeth
  4. Gaps
  5. Structure damage

Have you been looking for a way to improve the appearance of your teeth with little to no changes to your current smile? Minimal prep veneers may be the service you’ve been looking for. Starting with a consultation visit, we can begin putting together a customized treatment plan that helps you meet your cosmetic goals in as few visits as possible. We can also address any questions or concerns you might have during your initial consultation. We want every patient we see to feel completely comfortable with the service we recommend.
