Is there something about your teeth you would like to change?

Many people want to improve their smiles but think it is out of their reach or that it will be too complicated or expensive. Hunstville dentist Dr. Alec Helms is skilled at creating custom cosmetic treatment plans based on your individual needs. With his experience and expertise, your treatment may be simpler and easier than you think.

Attractive Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular choices in cosmetic dentistry today.

When considering cosmetic dentistry, veneers are often used to address a number of aesthetic dental flaws. Veneers are thin, durable, shell-like porcelain layers that fit over your teeth. They look natural and are made to match your teeth so they complement your face and smile.

Veneers are frequently used to correct the following dental issues:

  • Dark or stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth that are too short
  • Worn teeth
  • Teeth with surface cosmetic flaws
  • Discoloration caused by fillings
  • Malocclusions (misaligned bite)

Custom Treatment Planning

Porcelain veneers can be used to improve one tooth or many teeth depending on your needs as well as your dental health. How many veneers you want and what will work best to ensure comfortable talking and chewing are just a couple of the things that Dr. Alec Helms will discuss with you. At Helms Family Dentistry, we promote optimal function and comfort as well as beauty.

Porcelain Veneer Procedures

The process of placing porcelain dental veneers begins with a consultation at Helms Family Dentistry to determine your aesthetic goals and also to discover what may work best for you based on your health and the structure of your mouth and bite.

Most veneers require some tooth preparation by removing a small amount of enamel before they can be permanently bonded to your teeth. This preparation ensures an airtight seal and creates room for your veneer so that your smile does not appear bulky and your speech is not affected.

Once your permanent veneers have been bonded, you can expect that with proper dental care, they will last for many years to come. Naturally resistant to stains, veneers can improve the aesthetics of your smile and dramatically enhance your beauty as you get older. A beautiful smile keeps you looking young and healthy.

Whether you aspire to have the perfect Hollywood smile or you just want to fix a small flaw that makes you self-conscious, our Huntsville, Alabama, dental office will treat you with respect and cater to your individual needs. Dr. Helms will share your options with you and give you his honest opinion about your treatment.
