Just because you have cosmetic imperfections doesn’t mean you have to have a less-than-perfect smile.
You’ve been dreaming of improving and enhancing your smile for as long as you remember. You hate that others may notice discolorations, chips, cracks and other flaws that keep you from the even, attractive smile you know you deserve. If this is the case, your Augusta dentist at Myers Family Dental, Dr. Alan Myers, would love to tell you about porcelain veneers.
What can dental veneers do?
Most people think of veneers and think of them in much the same way they do dental crowns. After all, both hide a plethora of dental issues. Of course, veneers are a great alternative to crowns if the tooth is strong but just requires a cosmetic makeover. Dental veneers are bonded to only the front portion of a tooth but even just covering the front of it is enough to hide a wide range of aesthetic flaws such as:
- Worn-down teeth
- Chipped, broken teeth
- Misaligned or poorly shaped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
If you are dealing with any of these problems and are desperate to find a cosmetic treatment that will give you back the smile you want, then getting dental veneers could easily do just that and so much more for your appearance.
How do I get dental veneers?
In order to get dental veneers in our Augusta office, you will need to come in a couple times in order to get your new restorations. The first visit is just a consultation where we will examine your teeth and gums to make sure that teeth are healthy enough to support veneers. We will also ensure that your treatment goals align with what our veneers can offer you.
The next visit requires a little tooth preparation. Don’t worry; this doesn’t hurt. Unlike dental crowns, which require extensive tooth preparation, in order to get veneers we only have to remove a small bit of enamel from the front of your teeth. After the tooth preparation, we will also take impressions of your teeth so that the lab has the proper measurements from which to create your veneers.
You’ll have to wait up to a week for the dental lab to create your veneers and send them to us. Once this happens, your third and final visit will involve bonding the restorations to your teeth and making sure they fit just right.
