Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are typically made from porcelain materials, and they are bonded to the teeth to modify their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers can effectively conceal discoloration, chips or cracks, and minor cases of misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth. Additionally, they can help disguise gaps between teeth, resulting in a more uniform and visually appealing smile.
The process of getting dental veneers typically involves the following steps:
- We begin with an initial consultation and treatment planning, during which our team will discuss your specific needs, examine your teeth, and determine if veneers are suitable for you.
- Next, we will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the tooth surface to create space for the veneer and ensure a proper fit.
- An impression of your teeth is then taken and sent to a dental laboratory to fabricate the veneers, which typically takes a couple of weeks.
- In the meantime, we will provide temporary veneers to protect the surface of your prepared teeth.
- Once your veneers are ready, we will remove the temporaries and your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and etched to ensure a strong bond before the veneer is placed onto the tooth using dental cement.
- A special light is used to activate the cement, causing it to harden and bond the veneer to your tooth.
- Finally, you can leave our office with the perfect smile!
Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
A bright, white smile is often associated with youthfulness, health, and vitality. Over time, teeth can become stained or discolored due to various factors such as food, beverages, aging, or certain medications. At Aliana Family Dental, we are proud to offer the Zoom whitening system—an effective and safe in-office treatment that can dramatically whiten your teeth in just one visit.
The smile whitening process involves the following steps:
- Our team will first assess your dental health to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. Any existing dental issues, such as cavities or gum disease, should be addressed before undergoing teeth whitening.
- Before the procedure, we will protect your gums with a special covering to prevent irritation from the whitening gel. Your teeth will also be cleaned to remove any plaque or debris.
- The bleaching gel, containing hydrogen peroxide, is applied to your teeth. This high-intensity formula breaks down stains and discoloration on the tooth surface, allowing oxygen to penetrate the enamel and dentin, resulting in a lighter tooth color.
- A specialized LED light is used to activate the whitening gel, accelerating the whitening process. The light and gel work together to break up stains and discoloration on your teeth. This process typically involves three to four 15-minute sessions, during which the gel is reapplied and reactivated with the light.
- After the procedure, we will provide you with instructions to maintain your results and keep your smile looking bright at home. This will include avoiding heavily pigmented foods or beverages over the next 48 hours.
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. This virtually invisible solution offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces, making it a popular choice for both teens and adults. Invisalign can effectively address a variety of orthodontic issues—including mild cases of crowding, spacing, overbite, and underbite. By straightening the smile, Invisalign can help patients achieve a smile worth showing off!

Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, providing a secure and natural-looking restoration. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root. Once the implant has successfully integrated with the bone, a custom-made dental prosthetic is attached, completing the restoration.
Dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional tooth replacement options, including improved stability, longevity, and preservation of bone health. Additionally, the cosmetic appeal of dental implants is unmatched, as they closely resemble natural teeth in appearance and function. They offer a seamless blend with your existing teeth, ensuring a beautiful, complete smile.
