You can achieve a bright and perfect smile like celebrities and models with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are beautiful, ultra-thin, custom made porcelain laminates that are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. They can flawlessly cover broken, chipped, discolored, crooked, or gapped teeth. You will appreciate the dramatic and almost instantaneous transformation of your smile to a bright and flawless smile.
The most important things to know about dental veneers are: you can expect your dentist to remove a thin layer of enamel prior to the procedure, the entire process may take as many as three visits, all visits are quick and painless, and your veneers may last as long as 15 or 20 years.
In addition, veneers can usually be completed in two appointments. It is a conservative treatment where often little or no tooth reduction is required for perfect results. Veneers are durable, resistant to staining and chipping, and very esthetically pleasing.
If you opt for composite veneers or tooth bonding, these will be the less expensive of the two types, and will range anywhere from $400 to $1,500 per tooth. Porcelain veneers on the other hand, will probably cost between $900 and $2,500 for each veneer which gets installed.
We all want our dental restorations to last a lifetime. It's entirely possible that your porcelain veneers may last 20 years or even longer, provided that you take care of them conscientiously. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, avoiding bad habits like nail biting, pen/pencil chewing, or chewing on ice, and wearing a night guard will increase the longevity of a porcelain veneer. Composite veneers will have a somewhat shorter lifespan, but can be replaced more often because they're relatively less expensive.
Care for your dental veneers should not be any different from your normal dental hygiene approach - you need to brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash occasionally. The only difference is that you should probably use the softest toothbrush you can find, so as to protect the surface of the veneers against any kind of scratching or other damage.
If you're interested in having dental veneers installed, or if you have any questions about the process, by all means contact us as soon as possible. One of our friendly representatives will be happy to answer any questions, or to schedule you for an initial consultation.
I have to start off by saying that Dr. Hayslip’s assistants are the most comical and friendly people I have ever met. I don’t think a second went by that I wasn’t laughing at something one of them said. Dr. Hayslip was just as funny and I could thank him a million for the great job he did on my teeth but that would still not be enough. I could say that I never in my life looked forward to going to the dentist until now, I’ve come to know every single person in the office and I’ll probably drop by just to hang out. For the first time ever I actually smiled in my school picture.
Thank you.. thank you.. thank you..
For all you’ve done,
For all you do,
A special thanks
From me to You!
The kindness of the Doctor and the graciousness of his nursing staff made having my dental work almost pleasant. I’m glad I chose the BEST staff and Dr. Hayslip as my dentist!!
Dr. Hayslip and Staff,
Happier more confident and younger looking are just a few of the feeling I am experiencing since Dr. Hayslip gave me my new gorgeous smile. He and his staff are not only professional and caring but they are compassionate as well. The whole experience was so pleasant and Dr. Hayslip takes great pride in his work and it shows. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the temporaries looked and the permanent are unbelievable.
There is so much truth in the phrase “When you smile, the whole world smiles with you”!
Thank you for changing my life.
Due to my “bite” being off, my bottom front teeth were worn down and were very jiggered. I talked with my regular dentist, whom I had been seeing for many years, about what could be done to fix my bottom teeth. He didn’t seem to be too concerned. I assumed that his only solution was at some point in time he would fit me with a partial plate, or even worse- dentures. I was very disappointed.
Then, someone told me about the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry in Augusta, Georgia. I made an appointment to get an evaluation as to what could be done to save my bottom teeth. The representative told me that my bite was way off and in order to fix my bottom teeth, it would require extensive work throughout my whole mouth.
After I returned home, I noticed a sign in front of a dental office on Russell Parkway, MIDDLE GEORGIA CENTER FOR COSMETIC DENTISTRY. I made an appointment and visited this dentist to get his opinion on what could be done to save my bottom teeth. When Dr. Curtis
Hayslip looked at my teeth and my mouth, he gave me his recommendation, it was the same as the evaluation that I had received at the Dental School in Augusta.
I agreed for Dr. Hayslip to do whatever he deemed necessary to save my teeth. The total process involved grinding down all of my teeth and replacing them with crowns-28 crowns in all. Fitting the new crowns not only corrected my bite, it also enhanced my looks. The results were greater than my expectations. My new teeth looked perfect.
It has been over five years since I had all my teeth crowned and I have never regretted having it done. My new teeth not only helped my looks, but it also helped my self-esteem - I'm not embarrassed to smile now.
Thank you Dr. Hayslip for saving my teeth and improving my life.
Dear Dr. Hayslip,
I never realized how drastic the changes would be when I made the decision to have my Dura-thins applied to my teeth. Dr. Hayslip and I discussed the procedure and the outcome. However, I was so pleasantly surprised at how they looked. I used to dread smiling and hated seeing pictures of my teeth. Now, I receive so many compliments; I love to show my new smile! My only regret is that I did not do it sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Hayslip and his staff. They are a great team of professionals who get the job done and done well.
