Did you know improving your smile is an easy way to enhance your overall attractiveness? People are drawn to others with straight white teeth. If you were not born with nice teeth, veneers can hide unsightly teeth, giving you a smile that makes a good first impression and draws people in. Our dentist in Atlanta will help you decide if this cosmetic restoration can benefit you.

What Are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are porcelain teeth coverings which are custom made to correct a tooth’s color, size or shape. Porcelain is translucent like tooth enamel so it looks natural. No one should be able to notice your veneers when your dentist uses them to correct the following issues.

Tooth Color: Sometimes, yellowed or stained teeth don’t whiten enough with a professional teeth whitening treatment. If you’re not happy with the results or you would like to forego treatments every year or two, you can cover your front teeth with veneers in any shade you choose. Veneers are stain resistant; they will remain bright and lustrous for decades.

Tooth Size and Shape: Your dentist can use veneers to lengthen short teeth, adding length variations so your smile appears natural. Veneers can also mask misshapen teeth or cover an embarrassing chipped tooth.

Alignment and Spacing: Veneers can mask small gaps in your smile or moderately misaligned teeth. You won’t need to wear braces when you can hide these orthodontic issues which make you feel self-conscious about smiling.

The porcelain veneers procedure typically takes two appointments. During the first appointment, Your dentist will take off a minuscule amount of the front of your tooth to make room for the veneer. He or she will make impressions to send to the lab fabricating your custom veneer. On your second visit, your dentist will make sure the veneer fits properly, making any adjustments as needed before bonding the veneer to the tooth.

How Much Is the Typical Porcelain Veneers Cost?

We base your porcelain veneers cost on the difficulty of the veneer’s placement and the number of veneers you plan to get. We cannot provide a quote over the phone. Our dentist would have to assess your teeth, determine the type of veneers that are best in your case and go over how many veneers you’ll need before being able to tell you your cost. Call us to book your consultation and see how affordable a new smile can be at our office.

How Do Veneers Porcelain Differ from Porcelain Crowns?

Yes, crowns encase a tooth on all sides while veneers only cover the front of a tooth. Crowns give a tooth added strength; dentists often use crowns for teeth that have undergone a root canal procedure or for teeth that will hold a dental bridge. If you are considering either option, please call our office to make an appointment with one of our dentists who can help you decide on the best restoration for you.

What’s the Average Lifespan of Veneers?

Your porcelain veneers can enhance your smile for several decades if you are careful not to bite into any very hard foods with your front teeth. A veneer can chip just the same as a natural tooth. Cut hard foods into bite-sized pieces and then chew the pieces with your back teeth. If you play on a hockey team or engage in any contact sports, ask your dentist for a custom mouth guard. It will protect your veneers as well as your natural teeth and the rest of your mouth.

What Is Veneer Upkeep Like?

You still have to brush and floss using a soft toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste because while veneers cannot decay, the back and sides of the teeth with veneers are still susceptible to decay. Plaque can stick to your veneers, causing bad breath if you don’t brush it off.
