Cosmetic Dentistry in Macon with Dental Veneers & Crowns

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin custom shells that are applied to the front of teeth to improve their appearance. Highly polished porcelain and other durable restorative materials are blended using a combination of shades to create beautiful, natural-looking veneers.

Veneers are usually placed on the front teeth to create a uniform, symmetrical smile appearance. They require less preparation and removal of natural tooth structure than crowns or dental bonding, making them a conservative option to enhance healthy teeth.

Cosmetic Dental Crowns

Sometimes, too much natural tooth structure has been lost or damaged to support a dental filling or a veneer. In this case, the best solution is usually a crown, which covers the entire tooth above the gum line. The primary purpose of a dental crown is to protect the tooth from further damage or breakage.

Dental crowns are designed by your dentist and fabricated by the dental laboratory. They are made of porcelain or other restorative dental materials. Dental crowns are also composed of a mix of shades to re-create the translucency and shading of natural teeth.

Dental crowns and veneers may be used together to create a beautiful, vibrant smile.

‘Instant orthodontics’ uses a combination of crowns and veneers to improve minor alignment issues and create a ‘straight’ smile appearance.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple change that can make a big difference. As part of your smile makeover plan, we will usually recommend teeth whitening and match your veneers and crowns to your new, whiter shade. Read more about Teeth Whitening
