General dentistry is related to your health. Cosmetic dentistry has to do with your appearance. If a cosmetic dentistry procedure improves the functionality of your mouth, that is all well and good, but it is not the main purpose. A responsible dentist, though, will not consider you for cosmetic treatments if your general dental health is not good. So if you have cavities, gum disease, or other dental health issues, they will have to be corrected before you can consider cosmetic dentistry.
You do not have to consider it if your dental health is good and you are happy with your smile. The key indicator, though, is the last four words in that sentence – “happy with your smile.” If you dislike your smile, then you might feel self-conscious or embarrassed. Cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you want so that you will no longer feel uncomfortable about smiling.
There are several ways in today’s Dental World to enhance your smile. Certain procedures include:
Back to veneers, they are just a cosmetic dentistry treatment that involves installing tooth-like porcelain shells over unsightly teeth. The length, shape and color of your teeth can be altered using dental veneers. Crowns are another way of correcting dental imperfections when veneers are not sufficient to correct the dental issues.
Porcelain Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that go directly on your natural teeth. This entire procedure can take as few as two visits. Veneers change the size, shape and color of a patient’s teeth. This procedure is used to repair fractured teeth, teeth darkened by age or medication, or a crooked smile. Many times, patients ask for Porcelain Veneers to simply feel and look younger with a straighter, whiter smile!
Some patients have to wait years and go to many dental appointments to get the beautiful smile that they’ve always wanted. If waiting that long simply isn’t an option for you, talk to your dentist about dental veneers. With veneers, you get a big difference in the appearance of your smile with a very small procedure that can be completed in about two or three appointments.

A veneer is a covering placed over the surface of a tooth to make it look more attractive, whiter and more naturally shaped. It’s commonly made of porcelain, which is a very tough and durable material that resembles natural tooth enamel. The veneer resists staining and fixes a number of common cosmetic problems, including chipping, gaps and ridges in the teeth.
When it’s clear that veneers can help your smile, the next step is to get your teeth prepared for them. The preparation process involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel from the front of the tooth to make room for the veneer and ensure a proper bond. Since a veneer is as thin as a contact lens, less than a millimeter of enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth. The dentist will take an impression of the tooth so that a proper veneer can be made. At the final appointment, the veneer is bonded and shaped to perfection.

Veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the color and translucence of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel.
Veneers are a wonder of cosmetic dentistry not just because they give you a big difference in your smile with a small procedure, but also because they are long-lasting. Once a porcelain veneer is bonded, it can last for as long as 20 years—maybe even longer. It’s important to treat your veneers with as much TLC as your other teeth to keep them looking great for as long as possible.
The veneer has a strong bond to your tooth, but you have to keep it clean and free from plaque buildup to ensure its ongoing health and resilience. Brush around all surfaces of the tooth and floss between the teeth daily. Avoid biting hot foods (or drinking hot beverages) with your veneers as much as possible and drink less sugary beverages. One of the most important things to remember after you get veneers is to keep up with twice-yearly appointments for cleanings and checkups.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if some of your most upsetting cosmetic dental issues could be alleviated in a matter of two office visits? Patients of Kurz Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Dacula, GA can enjoy just this sort of option thanks to our cosmetic dentistry treatments, especially porcelain veneers and Lumineers.
