Veneers can offer a lot of amazing advantages for your smile. Find out what they could do for you!veneers

Don’t you want a smile you can’t wait to show off? There is nothing more beautiful than a straight, white, radiant smile, and now that smile could be yours. Our Mooresville, NC, dentist, Dr. R. Scott Langdon is here to tell you the many ways porcelain veneers could give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

What are veneers?

First, you may be wondering what veneers are. These very thin porcelain layers are made to look just like the front of a tooth. The purpose is to bond it to the front surface of one or all of your teeth to completely alter and enhance the shape, size or color.

Before veneers can be applied a little bit of tooth preparation is required. Don’t worry! It’s really nothing to be concerned about. After all, removing a little bit of tooth enamel from the front of your tooth can often be done without even needing anesthesia and it will ensure that when the veneers are applied that your new smile doesn’t look bulky or unnatural.

What are the benefits of veneers?

There are so many reasons to consider getting dental veneers from our Mooresville cosmetic dentist. Here are just some of the great advantages to getting dental veneers:

They look natural: Most people worry that their restorations will be obvious, but when you get veneers the only person who will know that your smile isn’t completely natural is you. Veneers are made from high-quality porcelain, which is even meant to reflect light in the same way as real teeth. Each veneer is custom-made and matched to the color of your smile to give you a natural look every time.

They can fix many cosmetic issues: They are so many people who can benefit from what veneers have to offer. If you have severe discolorations that teeth whitening can’t treat, dental veneers could cover it. Chips and cracks and even gaps between teeth can also be covered with these restorations. In fact, even minor twists, overlapping and crowding of teeth can be straightened out just by getting veneers.

They could strengthen your teeth: If you are a tooth grinder or jaw clenching you could be wearing your teeth down a lot. This could leave your teeth prone to cracks and chips in the long run. By having dental veneers placed over these teeth, these restorations could actually strengthen the tooth and protect against excessive wear and tear.

Do porcelain veneers sound like the cosmetic treatment you’ve been looking for? If so, our Mooresville, NC, dental office is here to offer you porcelain veneers and so much more. Call us today!

If you haven’t had your teeth and gums checked in a while, now is the right time to see Dr. R. Scott Langdon, a family dentist in preventative dentistryMooresville, NC, for preventative care. Preventative dentistry is crucial to helping patients avoid tooth loss and preserve the overall health of their smiles. Learn about the various preventative treatments and procedures available at Dr. Langdon’s dental practice.

Definition of Preventative Care
The idea behind preventative dental care is keeping your teeth clean, strong and continually protected from potential damage. The goal is to avoid dental infections, abscesses, gum disease and other conditions that put your teeth and gums in jeopardy. Many of the most common dental ailments can be avoided by committing to a few daily oral care habits, taking advice from your dentist and coming into the dentist’s office for preventative treatments.

Why It’s Important
Dental patients have a number of motivations for taking care of their oral health. They might want to prevent bad breath, or have a nice-looking smile. But one of the top motivators is keeping their original teeth. American adults between the ages of 20 and 64 have an average of about 25 teeth left according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. According to the same data, 10 percent of Americans ages 50-64 have lost all of their teeth. This can be avoided with preventative care and regular appointments with your Mooresville family dentist.

Preventative Treatments to Consider
Just the act of visiting your dentist twice per year is a preventative measure. Here are a few treatments that your dentist may recommend to protect your teeth and gums:

- regular and deep cleanings (surfaces and between the teeth)
- scaling and root planing (for patients at risk of gum disease)
- dental sealants to prevent cavities
- crowns (to secure weak or broken teeth)
- mouth/night guards to prevent clenching and grinding
- orthodontic treatment for TMJ and bite problems

Your Teeth Are Important
You should seek preventative care if you’re committed to maintaining good dental and oral health for a lifetime. Call Dr. Langdon, a family dentist in Mooresville, NC, at (704) 664-1188 today to schedule a checkup.
