Do you have dental damage that you're looking to fix? Would you like to give your smile an upgrade by removing chips, cracks, and discoloration? Dr. John D. Massey offers a wide selection of cosmetic dentistry procedures at Augusta Smile Care in Augusta, GA. Porcelain veneers are a durable solution for recreating the natural look of teeth. They also correct alignment issues and repair teeth that are misshapen from bruxism or injury. To discuss how porcelain veneers can rejuvenate your smile, schedule a consultation today.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

These custom-made ultra-thin shells are constructed from tooth-colored porcelain that fit over your teeth to restore their natural-looking appearance. Some refer to them as all-in-one orthodontic treatment and whitening because they fill gaps that might be affecting your speech or bite and brighten the shade of enamel. Porcelain veneers revitalize your smile in more ways than one. They also give you a healthy, attractive, and confident grin.

Other Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

When you choose cosmetic dentistry with veneers at Augusta Smile Care, you'll have:

  • A stronger, reinforced bite
  • A brighter smile than you had before
  • Natural-looking results
  • A boost in self-esteem

Placing Porcelain Veneers

Dr. John D. Massey typically performs porcelain veneer placement in two visits. The dentist will trim off a small amount of the tooth surface for the best fit. Once this is finished, he'll take an impression of your teeth, place a temporary veneer, and send the mold to a laboratory where the permanent set is fabricated. During your second appointment, they will be bonded to the surface of the teeth.

If your smile is damaged, you can remake it! You can restore your smile as good as it was originally. The answer is dental implants. They can restore your full chewing function and give you a beautiful smile too. Dr. John D. Massey at Augusta Smile Care in Augusta, GA, offers a full range of dental services, including dental implants, to give you the smile you deserve.

If you’ve been thinking about dental implants, you probably have a few questions. Some of the most frequently asked questions and answers are listed below:

Why are dental implants a better choice than bridges, partials, or dentures?

Dental implants are better than other tooth replacement options for many reasons. Unlike partials or dentures, dental implants are completely stable because they are firmly embedded in bone, eliminating the need for ever taking them out. They are also a much more conservative option than bridges because only the dental implant area needs to be prepared, whereas bridges require crowns to be placed on the adjacent teeth so as to hold the bridge in place.

Are dental implants often successful?

Yes, in fact, dental implants are the most successful surgical implant available today—in fact, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, they have a success rate of over 95 percent! This is largely because, they are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that your body won’t reject.

What is the procedure for dental implants?

The dental implant screw is placed in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. Over time, your supporting bone fuses completing your new tooth!
