Veneers are dental restorations that can give your smile a fresh start. It's a viable solution for patients who have tooth damage or veneersimperfections that need to be covered up. They allow your dentist to give you a “Hollywood” smile that’s white and nicely sculpted. Find out more about this cosmetic treatment offered by Dr. Tyler Myers at North Park Family Dentistry in Columbus, GA.

Designing Veneers
Veneers are custom dental prosthetics that are designed to fit your one-of-a-kind smile. They are about the width of a contact lens and look similar to a small wafer. When bonded to the front of the tooth, it gives it a whole new look. Veneers can be designed in a specific shade that matches the rest of your smile and they can be shaped and contoured as needed.

Benefits
If you have generally healthy teeth that can support veneers, there are a number of benefits of getting this cosmetic treatment at North Park Family Dentistry in Columbus. For one, you can show off your new smile in a relatively short time—getting veneers takes about two appointments. Also, this treatment only requires a minor adjustment to your natural teeth compared to full crowns. Finally, you can count on your veneers lasting up to 20 years with maintenance and regular dental appointments.

Caring for Veneers
Once you have veneers, adopting new, better dental care habits will help ensure that they continue to look good. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

- Brush carefully and thoroughly around the veneers to remove food particles and plaque buildup.
- Floss to remove food from around the gum line to avoid problems with gum disease.
- Go to the dentist at least once every six months for a checkup and cleaning.
