Crowns

Overview: Crowns are a cover, in the shape of a tooth, which encases the entirety of the tooth. Crowns can be thought like a protective shield for the tooth, and can hold the same look/ feel and strength as an actual tooth. They reestablish the normal functions of the previously damaged teeth.

A crown may be utilized to address tooth decay which cause weakness in the tooth, discoloration, injury, and post operation (root canal).

Procedure:: The setting of crowns is a method that required two parts.

The first part is where the doctor will appraise the respective tooth. Then, the doctor takes out any existing decay. After which, molds of the mouth taken and the patient fitted for a temporary crown while the permanent mold is made.

Upon completion of the permanent mold, the patient returns to the doctor for placement of the permanent crown. The crown is securely applied to the tooth with cement.

Veneers

Veneers are slim coverings that cover teeth, altering the shape and size of natural teeth. They are generally used to address teeth discoloration, injury, and damaged enamel.

Overview: Veneers can perform the same function as braces in a shorter amount of time, and can also brighten your smile.

The positioning of veneers is usually completed with several sessions. These sessions include an evaluation of the condition of the patient’s teeth, and serves as a goal setting session for further treatment. The following session is when tooth enamel is removed, so the veneers will fit with no challenges. A mold of the patients mouth occurs during this visit, and is the outline for the veneers. During the third session, the veneers are placed in the patient’s mouth, with the doctor making any adjustments, as needed. The teeth are cleaned, and a cement is used to bond the veneers to the teeth.

Patient Info: The team at Smile at Telfair will effectively explain the methods for implementing Veneers. We encourage all questions before and after the procedure. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Hussain. Rest assured, your concerns will be immediately addressed.

This team is a good group of people/ professionals. The staff is always very informative and we always end up having a good laugh. This is the type of relationship I expect from a neighborhood Dentist. I had brought my Mother who doesn't speak English.
