Gaps, discoloration, and other cosmetic dental issues can all affect your smile confidence. Our dentists have extensive experience using porcelain veneers and other cosmetic procedures to help patients improve the aesthetics of their smile.
Veneers are made from thin layers of porcelain and are permanently affixed to the front surface of the tooth to correct cosmetic issues. Once attached, the porcelain veneer looks and functions just like your natural tooth. Veneers made from porcelain can be used to correct the shape, size, alignment, or spacing of the teeth to make them appear uniform and proportionate to the size of your face. If you have dingy, yellow teeth, veneers can brighten your smile by several shades. The best part is that the process is painless. Schedule a consultation today with one of our Atlanta dentists to find out if veneers are right for you.
Veneers and crowns are both made from porcelain and are permanently affixed to the teeth to improve their overall appearance. Veneers, however, only attach to the front surface of the tooth, so they are more appropriate for correcting minor cosmetic imperfections. Crowns are essentially porcelain teeth. They cover the entire tooth down to the gum and are most often used when the underlying tooth structure has been compromised by trauma, decay, or excessive wear. Crowns are also the preferred choice for the molars since they are able to withstand the chewing forces exerted by the back teeth.
The dentist will start by making a mold of your teeth so that your veneers can be customized to blend in with your natural teeth. Depending on the circumstances, the dentist may have to remove a thin layer of tooth enamel before applying the veneer, but the process is painless. Once the process is complete, you will care for your new teeth just like you would your natural teeth. With normal brushing and flossing, your veneers should last for decades. Of course, you should avoid activities that could damage the veneer, such as opening bottles with your teeth or biting into certain hard foods.
Veneers are an effective and affordable way to improve the appearance of your smile. The exact cost can vary from person to person based on the overall condition of the teeth, the type of veneer chosen, and the number of veneers required. We will provide you with an outline of your porcelain veneers cost once you and your dentist have decided on your treatment plan.
Certain types of veneers porcelain, such as Lumineers®, are ultrathin and do not typically require the removal of any enamel. They are a good option for those looking for durable veneers.
