Many people in Social Circle and the surrounding areas desire flawless smiles. However, they want to attain radiant and beautiful smiles using safe and effective dental treatments. They are delighted to learn they can find these treatments at Social Circle Dental. Dr. Jones, a highly respected biological dentist, utilizes safe and effective dental materials. He is mindful of the effect dental materials can have on the whole body, so he uses biocompatible materials for restorations.
One of the many cosmetic treatments we offer is veneers, which can be ideal for misshapen, gapped, uneven, worn, or chipped teeth. Veneers can also be a solution for tooth stains from medications such as tetracycline, as these stains do not respond well to tooth whitening. Veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded onto the tooth enamel. We use porcelain to create the veneers, which is a strong, durable, stain resistant material. There is minimal tooth preparation to ensure the veneer is not bulky. Porcelain veneers provide many benefits including:
• Brightening teeth – You can bid farewell to tooth stains.
• Closing gaps between teeth – There will no longer be spaces in your smile.
• Restoring chipped or cracked teeth – You can smile with confidence with restored teeth.
• Realigning teeth – Veneers can provide the appearance of perfectly straight teeth.
• Reshaping teeth – When veneers are placed on misshapen teeth they can blend naturally with the smile.
To explore your candidacy for veneers, we recommend scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Jones. He will thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to determine if veneer treatment is right for you. If you are a candidate for treatment, he will form a plan with you.
Dr. Jones has been transforming smiles for more than 40 years with treatments such as veneers. He can restore the radiance to your smile.

Choosing between the various restorations available for the repair of a damaged tooth can seem overwhelming. There are many options available today for a good reason. We are no longer limited only to silver fillings or gold dental crowns. We have progressed beyond a standard metal crown, even with a porcelain overlay. When facing restoration with a dental crown, you now have options for technology as well as materials.
In addition to various lab-fabricated crowns, we offer CEREC crowns in our Social Circle, GA practice. These crowns are similar to standard ceramic or porcelain crowns in some ways, but made differently. Primarily, the time frame makes CEREC immediately appealing, but there is more to love about this innovative technology.
CEREC has been used for over twenty years, providing patients with single-visit restorations that are strong and aesthetically pleasing. During a visit in which CEREC is incorporated, Dr. Jones removes all damaged areas of the affected tooth, and prepares it for its new crown. Different from the process of lab-fabricated crowns, CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology to create the impression used to make restorations. This eliminates the need for thick, gooey impression material. CAD/CAM uses a tiny camera, placed inside the mouth. This camera takes a picture, which is then transformed into a 3D model, showing us the natural structure of the prepared tooth.
There are various benefits to CEREC technology. Most recognized is the fact that CEREC crowns take only a few minutes to make, completing the entire restoration process within just one visit. Life is busy, and having the ability to complete dental treatment faster and with great accuracy saves precious time. Another benefit, which isn't usually considered, but is no less significant, is the fact that CEREC crowns are incredibly strong. Bonded directly to the prepared tooth, a CEREC crown can withstand the pressure of biting force for many years.
Every patient requires treatment based not only on time, but also on budget and specific physical needs. In providing choices for innovative treatment like CEREC, we ensure something for everyone.
