Visual imperfections on the teeth in your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious and socially awkward. This is especially true if you’ve had a long history stained tooth enamel. One of the most effective ways to give you a white and easy-to-maintain smile is to have your dentist, Dr. Dexter Inniss, install dental veneers.
Dental veneers in Conyers, Georgia, are custom shaped and shaded porcelain shells that are designed to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. They will be custom crafted in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth, improving their shape and contour. At the same time, the porcelain material will only be subject to minor surface staining from dark beverages and foods. This will have the net effect of helping you maintain your new, bright, white smile.
Dr. Dexter Inniss will start with a careful examination of each tooth in your smile. It’s important to make sure there you have sufficient, healthy enamel to secure a veneer. If you have a tooth that has been compromised by tooth decay or old fillings or simply lacks sufficient enamel, he might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.
Dr. Dexter Inniss will then form a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to an off-site dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.
Once they have completed the veneers, a member of Dr. Dexter Inniss’s staff will call you back in for a second appointment to install them. During this session, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the veneers into place with a strong dental adhesive.
