You’ve been so busy planning your wedding that you haven’t had time to stop and think. Of course, as the planning winds down thoughts may turn to how you want to look for the big day. After all, you’re going to have those pictures forever. If your smile is leaving something to be desired, Dr. Alan Myers of Myers Family Dental in Augusta, Georgia, has just the thing.

Dental veneers, laminates, porcelain veneers. Whatever you want to call them, these super thin tooth-colored shells may be all you need to change the overall look of your smile. Do you want a smile that is just as perfect as the one your favorite actor flaunts on TV? If so, chances are pretty good that they got that smile thanks to dental veneers.

Veneers are a great way to change the shape, length, size and even shade of your teeth. You may choose to only get veneers on teeth that are flawed or you may choose to completely makeover your smile and get a full set of veneers. When you sit down with our Augusta cosmetic dentist we can help determine which is the best option for you.

Veneers can hide a variety of problems from discolorations that teeth whitening can’t treat and moderate chips and cracks to gaps between teeth, minor crowding, and crookedness. Sometimes there are defects within the enamel that can affect the shape and appearance of a tooth. Veneers could be a great way to restore that defected tooth to an ideal shape.

Before you can get veneers we will need to make sure that your teeth are healthy enough for this cosmetic treatment. Through a thorough exam and X-rays we will make sure that there is enough healthy tooth enamel to support your restorations. Once this has been determined your teeth will have to undergo a little preparation so that they are ready to receive the veneers. By removing a small bit of enamel from the front of your teeth, we will create enough room to place the veneers. Just know that once enamel has been removed it will not grow back, so your new veneers are meant for life.

Next, impressions will be taken and a dental lab will go right to work making your veneers. Once they are made, you will come back in so that we can fit you with your beautiful new restorations. Veneers are painlessly bonded to the front of your teeth using resin and a special laser to harden the resin and veneers in place.
