If you frequently suffer from significant dental stains on the teeth in your smile it can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. This is even more likely to be an issue if your career calls for frequent personal interaction with clients and customers.
Dr. Tyjuan Williams can often remove dental stains from teeth with an outpatient dental bleaching treatment. Yet if you don’t take measures to maintain your teeth between dental cleanings, the dental stains could easily recur.
In a situation like this, Dr. Tyjuan Williams might recommend having dental veneers installed at his dental office in Augusta, Georgia. These are specially shaped shells cast from a special dental porcelain material. They will be created at a professional dental lab to match the natural shape of each tooth in your smile.
The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel. This special dental material will not be as porous as natural tooth enamel so the teeth with dental veneers will resist future dental staining issues.
Dr. Tyjuan Williams will start the process of fitting you for veneers by examining each tooth in your smile. This ensures that there is sufficient strong enamel to later mount the veneers and address any old fillings or newly formed cavities.
If you have a tooth that’s been compromised in some way, Dr. Tyjuan Williams might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain dental crown.
Dr. Tyjuan Williams will then create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This is sent to a dental lab where your custom dental veneers are produced.
A staff member of Dr. Tyjuan Williams’s staff will call you to schedule a second appointment when your dental veneers are ready. Dr. Tyjuan Williams will install them by using a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. This prepares the surface of the tooth to secure the veneer with a strong dental adhesive.
If you live in the Augusta, Georgia, area and you would like to improve the appearance of your smile with dental veneers, you should call 706-868-4200 to schedule a consultation at Tyjuan Williams DMD.
