What Veneers Can Do for Your Smile
The dentists in McDonough, GA, know their patients want to have better-looking smiles, but sometimes the cost can be too high. For that reason, Dr. Robert Brooks offers dental veneers.
What are veneers used for?
Veneers are used to resurface an individual's teeth if they're stained, mishappened, crooked, chipped, irregularly shaped, or overcrowded.
When you come into your dentist's McDonough, GA, office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If Dr. Robert Brooks decides that veneers can work for you, then any underlying issues, like cavities, will need to be resolved first. Afterwards, your doctor will take impressions of your teeth then send them to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.
When your veneers finally arrive, your dentist will remove enamel from the surface of your teeth and then cement veneers to replace the enamel that has been removed. Removing enamel is an irreversible process and, because veneers are made out of thin porcelain or plastic, you won't feel like your teeth are protruding. On the contrary, they will feel smooth, even and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.
Other advantages, besides concealing the faults mentioned above, is that the procedure doesn't need very much anesthesia. Also, veneers have an impressive color stability which makes them highly resistant to staining. So you'll be able to sip your tea or coffee without any worries.
How to care for veneers?
Porcelain veneers are strong, but it's important to take proper care of them. Brushing and flossing are essential. Brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed. In addition to your daily dental regimen, don't skip your bi-yearly exam with your doctor.
