Once your veneers are ready you will come back into our office for a final fitting in which we will check the look, fit and bite of your new veneers.

How dental veneers from your dentist in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia can enhance your smileveneers

Do you ever wonder how some people have absolutely perfect smiles? Their teeth are all dazzling white and beautifully aligned. They could have been naturally gifted with perfect teeth, but there is a good chance they have dental veneers! You can have a perfect smile too, thanks to dental veneers. Dr. Travon Holt at Midtown Dental Studio in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia wants to share how dental veneers can enhance your smile.

Dental veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain or plastic which are cemented onto the front surfaces of teeth. Veneers are a conservative treatment because Dr. Holt only needs to remove enough tooth surface to compensate for the veneer thickness. Conservative treatment means more vital tooth structure is maintained.

Veneers which are made of porcelain reflect light, just like your natural teeth. This light-reflective quality means your veneers will look completely natural and virtually indistinguishable from your existing teeth. All people will notice is your dazzling white smile, not your veneers. Porcelain also repels stains.

Dental veneers are one of the most effective, versatile cosmetic dental treatments available to correct even the most unsightly dental issues including:

  • Fractured or broken teeth due to an accident
  • Cracked or chipped teeth due to trauma or bad habits
  • Excessively worn tooth edges due to aging
  • Heavy staining or discolorations due to smoking, medications or genetics
  • Closing up gaps between teeth

If you have a special event like a wedding, family or school reunion, or job interview coming up, remember dental veneers! Dental veneers can help you stand out from the crowd. Dental veneer treatment takes between 2 and 3 appointments to complete, so you can have your new dazzling smile just in time!

To find out more about how dental veneers can enhance your smile and your life, call Dr. Travon Holt at Midtown Dental Studio in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia. Start improving your smile by calling today!

VivicasVeneerstheMakingofaHollywoodSmile

What's an actor's most important feature? According to Vivica A. Fox, whose most recent big-screen role was in Independence Day: Resurgence, it's what you see right up front.

"On screen, your smile and your eyes are the most inviting things that bring the audience in" she said. "Especially if you play the hot chick."

But like lots of people, Vivica reached a point where she felt her smile needed a little help in order to look its best. That's when she turned to a popular cosmetic dental treatment.

"I got veneers years ago," Ms. Fox told Dear Doctor magazine in a recent interview, "just because I had some gapping that probably only I noticed."

What exactly are dental veneers? Essentially, they are thin shells of lustrous porcelain that are permanently attached to the front surfaces of the teeth. Tough, lifelike and stain-resistant, they can cover up a number of defects in your smile — including stains, chips, cracks, and even minor spacing irregularities like the ones Vivica had.

Veneers have become the treatment of choice for Hollywood celebs — and lots of regular folks too — for many reasons. Unlike some treatments that can take many months, it takes just a few appointments to have veneers placed on your teeth. Because they are custom made just for you, they allow you to decide how bright you want your smile to be: anywhere from a natural pearly hue to a brilliant "Hollywood white." Best of all, they are easy to maintain, and can last for many years with only routine care.

To place traditional veneers, it's necessary to prepare the tooth by removing a small amount (a millimeter or two) of its enamel surface. This keeps it from feeling too big — but it also means the treatment can't be reversed, so once you get veneers, you'll always have them. In certain situations, "no-prep" or minimal-prep veneers, which require little or no removal of tooth enamel, may be an option for some people.

Veneers aren't the only way to create a better smile: Teeth whitening, crowns or orthodontic work may also be an alternative. But for many, veneers are the preferred option. What does Vivica think of hers?

"I love my veneers!" she declared, noting that they have held up well for over a decade.

Smile problems? Dental veneers will give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Dr. Travon Holt at Midtown Dental Studio in veneersAtlanta, GA, offers a full range of dental services, including dental veneers. Read on to learn about the top five benefits of dental veneers.

#1- Restore Chipped Teeth

Do you have chipped teeth? Let dental veneers cover your dental imperfections and renew your smile. A dental veneer will make your teeth look whole and healthy again. Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain, which are bonded to the front of teeth.

#2- Fix Gapped Teeth

Do you have gapped teeth? For some people, having gaps between their teeth can affect their confidence. Porcelain veneers can close the gaps between your teeth and give you the perfect smile. Porcelain veneers last longer than bonding since they are made of a stronger material. 

#3- Whiten Your Teeth

Do you have stained teeth? Porcelain veneers will give you a whiter, brighter smile. Porcelain veneers do not stain and they look very natural. Dark-colored foods and beverages do not stain porcelain veneers as they do natural teeth because unlike tooth enamel, porcelain is not porous. 

#4- Cover Crooked Teeth

Do you have crooked teeth? Dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of crooked, uneven or misaligned teeth. Your Atlanta dentist can use dental veneers to cover up multiple problems at once.

#5- Look Years Younger

Do you want to look younger? It's no secret that your teeth play an important role in defining how young or old you look. Dental veneers will improve your appearance and make you look and feel years younger.

Do you notice imperfections in your smile that make you reluctant to show it off? Even minor flaws can cause you embarrassment and veneersaffect your ability to enjoy life confidently--but you don't have live this way forever. Veneers from your Atlanta, GA dentist, Dr. Travon Holt at Midtown Dental Studio, are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that can immediately improve the look of your smile.

Veneers are thin ceramic or porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to your teeth to improve their appearance. They're custom-made to change the color, shape or position of your front teeth while giving them a natural and healthy appearance.

Benefits of Veneers

Restore chipped or worn teeth: If your teeth show visible signs of wear, veneers can build them back up to their natural shape. Short teeth will appear longer and fuller, and chipped teeth become whole again.

Avoid orthodontics: For minor alignment problems, veneers are an ideal alternative to braces. They can cover gaps and crooked teeth, immediately giving you the straight teeth you crave without the hassle of orthodontics.

Permanently whiten: Wish your teeth were a brighter shade of white? For yellow or stained teeth, veneers can end the need for whitening treatments or hiding your smile.

Create a more aesthetic shape: If you feel like your teeth are too long, too short, or too wide, veneers can be made to alter their appearance in any way you wish.

Your new veneers are customized in color and shape to give you exactly the results you want. Before permanently bonding them your teeth, Dr. Holt will show you what they look like and let you request any final changes. Then he'll put the finishing touches on the shape and color of your new veneers.
