How Veneers Can Help Reshape Your Smile
Veneers can help reshape your smile by dramatically improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic concerns. Stains, discolorations, chipped areas, and other flaws all disappear once your custom veneers are in place. In McDonough, GA, veneers are available at Brooks Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, where Dr. Robert Brooks or Dr. Brent Johnson can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
How Veneers Help
Veneers are thin covers placed over the front surface of teeth with cosmetic imperfections to give those teeth a flawless appearance. Each veneer is custom-made to fit perfectly over its corresponding tooth so it readily blends in with the surrounding teeth. Once in place, veneers look just like your natural teeth so all anyone will see is your beautiful new smile.
Some of the cosmetic issues veneers can help with include:
- A chipped tooth
- Stains or discolorations
- Excess spacing between teeth
- Teeth that are oddly shaped
- Cracked teeth
- A dull smile
In addition to looking like part of your natural teeth, veneers function like them as well. Each veneer is securely cemented in place, which means you can eat a variety of foods without worrying the veneers will come loose. The skilled dentist at our office in McDonough, GA, can help you decide if veneers are right for you.
There are a few simple steps to getting custom veneers. Once the teeth that need veneers are identified, those teeth are prepared in advance. In most cases, a small portion of enamel must be removed from the surface of the teeth to make room for the veneers. Otherwise, the veneers would protrude slightly past the surrounding teeth without veneers.
Once the teeth have been prepped, the dentist will make a mold of them. The mold is used to create your custom veneers. The mold is then sent off to a dental lab where the veneers will be fabricated. A temporary set of veneers will be placed on the teeth while waiting for the custom ones to be created. Once the custom veneers are ready, they will be permanently cemented in place.
Veneers can reshape your smile into the one you’ve always wanted. For custom veneers in McDonough, GA, schedule a consultation with Dr. Brooks or Dr. Johnson by calling Brooks Cosmetic & Family Dentistry at (678) 583-0330.
