Are your teeth healthy but have minor flaws that make you embarrassed to show your smile? Are you looking for an affordable way to improve your smile confidence? If so, schedule a consultation with one of our Atlanta dentists to find out how you can achieve a more beautiful smile with the help of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers offer a permanent solution to cosmetic dental issues. The veneer is fabricated from thin layers of dental-grade porcelain and attaches to the front surface of the tooth. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are yellowed, misaligned, misshapen, or incorrectly sized for the proportion of the face. Each veneer is custom-made to match your existing teeth.
To ensure that your veneers look as natural as possible, the dentist will make an impression of your teeth that will be used to create your veneers. Depending on the type of veneer that you choose, the dentist may have to remove up to 1 millimeter of tooth enamel to ensure a proper fit. This is less than the amount typically required for porcelain crowns. Lumineers® are ultrathin veneers that virtually eliminate the need for removing any of the tooth enamel. Once the crown is attached, it will look and function just like your natural teeth.
Veneers porcelain are made to withstand decades of normal use. Normal brushing and flossing are all that you need to do to keep your veneers looking beautiful. Just like natural teeth, your veneers could become damaged if you use them to open bottles and packages or to eat hard foods.
Although veneers and crowns are made from the same material, they are suited to different applications. Veneers are affixed to the front of the tooth, so they are normally used to correct minor cosmetic flaws. Crowns cover the entire tooth, which is why they are sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth. Crowns are a good option for restoring and reinforcing teeth that have been heavily damaged by trauma or decay. They are also a better option for molars that are subjected to tremendous force during chewing.
Your porcelain veneers cost will depend on your specific dental needs. Your dentist will provide you with an outline of your cost after determining the best type of veneer for your situation and assessing the overall condition of your teeth and the number of veneers required.
Lumineers® are incredibly durable, thin and long lasting veneers. They can last for over 20 years if properly cared for.
