What You Need to Know about Porcelain Veneers

Unhappy with your teeth and smile? See how porcelain veneers can make you love the way you look.

A Diagnosis of your Dental Needs

Most dentists recommend either porcelain veneers or crowns to correct dental concerns. Since everyone has different needs and personal considerations, your dentist will do an examination of your teeth and explain what both crowns and veneers cost to help you select the right treatment. See, crowns are ideal for correcting both functional and minor cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers are preferred for dramatic cosmetic results, but veneers cost more. Be assured that your dentist in Atlanta will help you decide whether veneers or crowns are the treatment for you.

Preparation for the Procedure

If porcelain veneers are your pick, you may first need to have x-rays taken to provide a detailed look at your teeth. Then, a tiny amount of enamel will be removed from each tooth being treated to prepare it for the veneer. Afterward, your dentist will make an impression of the tooth and send it to a dental laboratory for construction of the veneer. Expect to wait about one or two weeks before the porcelain veneer is ready.

The Time of Treatment

Your dental practice will call you to schedule an appointment for placing the veneers. During this visit, your dentist will first analyze the veneer against your teeth to make sure it’s a perfect match. The rest of the placement will involve:

  • The tooth being treated will be well cleaned and dried.
  • The tooth will be etched to prepare it to hold the veneer.
  • The porcelain veneer will be bonded to the tooth with a special dental cement.
  • A special curing light will be shined onto the veneer to harden the cement and secure it to the tooth.
  • Excess cement will be removed and the dentist will make any final adjustments.
  • You may need to return for a follow-up visit to check that your gums are responding well to the procedure.
  • You will enjoy the comfort and confidence of your new, improved smile.
