Smile Makeovers Available with Porcelain Veneers in Hamilton!

March 4th, 2021

Despite their popularity in the past few decades, veneers actually originated just about one hundred years ago in early Hollywood! In the late 1920s, Dr. Charles Pincus, a famed Hollywood dentist, founded veneers as a way to enhance actors’ and actresses’ smiles on the screen. He would temporarily apply false fronts to the stars’ teeth, giving them the breathtaking smiles that quickly became a trademark of Hollywood beauty. Over the years, specifically in 1982, J.R. Calamia and R.J. Simonsen applied a few evolved techniques to the application process and voila!  Porcelain veneers. Suddenly, everyone had access to the stunning Hollywood smiles of the past. Now, even in 2017, our office Hamilton Family Dentistry offers porcelain veneers in Hamilton, GA.

What exactly are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth for an immediate smile transformation. Each set of porcelain veneers are custom made for each patient. If you were to decide this is the best cosmetic procedure for you, you could expect porcelain veneers made from a combination of medical-grade ceramic and our cosmetic dentist’s careful attention to detail. You can also expect a “smile analysis.” After examining your teeth, Dr. Alan Arrington will measure a variety of aspects of your face and mouth to formulate the appropriate size and shape of your veneers. This whole process is to make sure they match your face and jaw structure to gain the results that you’ve been dreaming of.  Dr. Alan Arrington will also develop the right color match to your other teeth.

 Why would I need porcelain veneers?

Some people prefer porcelain veneers over other cosmetic procedures because it covers extensive damages. This cosmetic procedure lasts several years, tends to offer more versatility than other procedures, and is durable. These tooth-colored shells of ceramic are stain resistant, meaning they will not tarnish with exposure to coffee, wine, or tobacco products. That is a huge plus for most of our patients that live busy lives. Some flaws that porcelain veneers can take care of include:

  • Whitening or discoloration
  • Misalignment
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Short/eroded teeth
  • Irregularly spaced teeth
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Damage to enamel

Based on a lot of people’s lifestyles today, especially in the busy state of Georgia, it is extremely difficult to avoid all foods and habits that cause damage to your teeth. Cosmetic dental procedures are much more common than not. Give yourself the chance to have the confidence that Hollywood movie stars elude with this satisfying smile upgrade.
