Porcelain VeneersDo you have stained or damaged teeth? Do you want to rejuvenate your smile back to its glamour days?

Your dentist in Mountain Brook, AL, Dr. Wes Samford, knows patients want to have better-looking smiles, so he recommends a solution: Veneers.

More Information About Veneers

Veneers are an anesthetic fix for unsightly teeth. They are made of thin porcelain and used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged. They treat a variety of issues, such as:

  • Stained or discolored teeth, usually a result of drinking coffee or tea, poor oral hygiene, smoking, chewing tobacco, or taking tetracycline-containing medicine
  • Teeth that are crooked, overcrowded, and irregularly shaped

Veneer Procedure

When you come into the Mountain Brook office, Dr. Samford will:

  • Examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. Before he decides that you are a good candidate, he'll first have to deal with any underlying issues, like cavities.
  • He'll remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth so that you won't feel like your teeth are protruding once the veneers are placed.
  • Your dentist will then take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made and then applied.

Caring for Veneers

In order to take proper care of your veneers, you need to:

  • Brush twice a day while holding your brush at a 40-degree angle
  • Use fluoride-containing toothpaste, mouthwash, and water
  • Eat healthy food like carrots that scrape teeth clean
  • Floss at least once before bed
  • Change your toothbrush when it's frayed

Consultation

Veneers are a good choice for concealing superficial dental issues. For more information on veneers, contact your dentist in Mountain Brook, AL, by calling (205) 423-9140. Dr. Wes Samford will be more than happy to help you with your dental needs!
