Porcelain dental veneers are one of the fastest and most esthetic means of improving common cosmetic dental flaws. There have been tremendous advancements in them since they were first developed in 1928 by Dr. Charles L. Pincus to perfect Hollywood stars' smiles temporarily while filming. Today's veneers can create unparalleled results in the hands of a skilled dentist such as Dr. Jones, who is responsible for many of the stunning smiles seen across the state of Georgia.
Modern dental veneers are ultra-thin, about the thickness of a contact lens, so they only require minimal tooth preparation. They can be used to create beautiful smiles while maintaining the maximum amount of tooth structure, making them a conservative but extremely effective technique. Minor misalignment, permanent discoloration, shape, proportion, gaps, and chips are just some of the esthetic flaws that can be improved with veneer placement.
Dr. Jones can create brand new, breathtaking smiles for his patients in as little as three weeks using porcelain veneers. The first step in the process is communication. He takes the time to get to know you, discuss the aspects of your smile that you dislike and like, and understand your goals. Whether you want a bright white, perfectly symmetrical "Hollywood Smile" or a more natural look with subtle nuances, the doctor can help you attain the smile of your dreams. The skilled dental ceramists we work with can manipulate the transparency and color of the porcelain to achieve the look you desire.
Your teeth and gums must be healthy for any successful cosmetic treatment. If you have any oral issues, they need to be addressed before treatment can commence. If you have conditions such as significant decay or misalignment, porcelain veneers may not be recommended. If they are not right for you, the doctor will suggest potential alternatives that would be appropriate for your needs.
Dr. Jones assesses your needs and desires, considers your complexion, hair color, and facial shape to design a treatment plan that will deliver a lovely, natural looking smile. If you have looked in the mirror and have decided it is time for a change, call (770) 464-1900 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Jones today.
Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term, defined as any dental procedure or treatment that provides esthetic improvement. It may include implants, dentures, bridges, crowns, veneers, bonding, whitening, and more. At Social Circle Dental, cosmetic treatment isn't just about appearance. Dr. Jones is committed to delivering smiles that are just as healthy as they are beautiful.
The first step is a complete examination and consultation. This includes an evaluation of your gum health, and any x-rays that are needed. The doctor will ask you some questions about your oral health and your cosmetic goals. Be sure to tell him if you are in pain, having difficulty chewing, or have any other dental problems. Clearly explain what you dislike about your smile. For example, do you want to even out teeth, change their color, make them longer?
Dr. JonesDr. Don D. Jones, Jr. takes a whole-mouth approach to dentistry, considering all health and cosmetic issues. Sometimes the less visible back teeth need attention first, because they are worn down and uncomfortable. He will devise a treatment plan, and discuss it with you. Some patients want their new smiles in a hurry. Some patients want to break up the treatment into steps for convenience or financial reasons. Dr. Jones will work with you to come up with a solution that is right for your smile and fits your life.
Cosmetic procedures are done with the same basic step-by-step approach that Dr. Jones uses in all dentistry. The first step is to get you out of pain if anything is hurting. The second step is to get your gums healthy. A healthy mouth is the foundation for a beautiful smile. It is also important for maintaining a healthy body.
Cosmetic dentistry can be life changing. Dr. Jones has many patients tell him that they have always wanted nice smiles, and they are pleasantly surprised when they see their gorgeous new smiles! He has been creating dazzling smiles since 1976, and he loves the artistic aspect of his work. He understands that the smallest details in planning your smile and fabricating restorations, can make the difference between a nice smile and a stunning smile.
