When a patient wishes to improve the color, shape, size, or length of their teeth, Dr. Travis E. Hampton may recommend dental veneers in Covington, Georgia. Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made from tooth-colored materials. They are placed over the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to fix dental flaws including:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Slightly crooked or crowded teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
To place a dental veneer, our dentist will first remove a small amount of tooth enamel to allow room for the dental veneer in your mouth. An impression of the tooth is taken so the dental veneer can be constructed. When your dental veneer is ready, our dentist will place it in your mouth to check the fit and color. After any necessary adjustments are made, our dentist will clean, polish, and roughen your tooth. These processes will ensure for a strong bonding process. Our dentist will then use a special cement to bond the dental veneer in place. Any extra cement is removed and any needed final adjustments are made.
