Same Day Veneers

Veneers are the most common procedure incorporated in smile makeovers and can be an option for patients simply looking to have a gorgeous smile. They are the ultimate in enduring beauty because they are the quick way to a beautiful, natural looking smile. Dr. O’Donnell can correct a range of dental issues with veneers, such as 

  • Displeasing defects in the tooth
  • Permanent staining
  • Damage due to injury
  • Unsightly gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are chipped or worn

Using his experience, as well as his aesthetic sensibilities, Dr. O’Donnell and his team design veneers that look both beautiful and natural; those “Beautiful Smiles to Match a Beautiful City”


Veneers are thin custom-made shells of ceramic or composite material that are bonded to the front side of your teeth. They can be utilized anywhere from a single tooth to the entire mouth and offer a natural-looking solution to help brighten and reshape your smile. Veneers can be a terrific alternative to crowns because they are a more conservative approach to changing the color, size or shape of a tooth. Veneers are typically only used for the visible part of the tooth so a skilled dentist, like Dr. O’Donnell will only remove as much tooth structure as is needed. Although the shell is extremely thin, bonded veneers are extremely strong and with todays advanced technology, can last for many years.

At Alabama Smile Design, we offer CEREC veneers, which can be done in one day. Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. At Alabama Smile Design, using advanced cosmetic dentistry training and knowledge, Dr. O’Donnell will design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile. You can feel confident that Dr. O’Donnell is a true artist and has the skills necessary to make your veneers look beautiful.

Same Day Crowns

Crowns are one of the most utilized dental treatments in existence. A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over the prepared tooth to restore its optimal form and function. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong. A crown is cemented into place and covers the entirety of the tooth that appears above the gum line. The result is a replacement tooth that looks and feels just like the natural tooth.

At Alabama Smile Design, we are pleased to offer the ultimate in digital dentistry with CEREC same day, one appointment dental restorations. We are proud to say that Dr. O’Donnell is a CEREC Trainer and a speaker on the use of this technology in practices around the SouthEast. Our assistants are also certified CEREC specialists – with us, you get the best of the best! 


There are many different situations that call for crown treatment. Our primary concern, like yours, is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright for years to come! If Dr. O’Donnell recommends a crown, it is probably to correct one of these conditions:

  • To rebuild decayed or broken teeth that are not candidates for fillings
  • To cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped
  • To add structural support and enhanced aesthetics to a damaged tooth
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To restore tooth structure to a tooth that has received root canal therapy
  • Crowns also serve as the finishing touches to dental implants

With CEREC technology, our office is able to create, model and design each crown on site. You leave in one visit with your permanent restoration in place. This convenience is one of the many reasons patients love coming to Alabama Smile Design for all of their restorative dental needs.
