If you’re reluctant to smile because your teeth are chipped, discolored, or misaligned, then porcelain veneers might be the answer for you. Veneers are comprised of several very thin layers of veneers porcelain, and they’re permanently affixed to the front surface of your teeth; they restore the aesthetic appeal to healthy teeth that lack visual appeal. They can correct minor imperfections in size, shape, color, or position. If you would like more information on veneers, call our Roswell office and let us help you.
Veneers are designed to restore the aesthetic appeal to your teeth, and they look like your natural teeth, they don’t look like dentures. If your teeth are healthy, but you don’t smile because you don’t like the way they look, then call our Roswell office for an appointment with our dentist. Veneers can correct minor imperfections such as:
Size and shape: If you have one or more chipped teeth, you may feel self-conscious during an important event such as a job interview or a social function. Veneers are applied to the front of the tooth and the color can be matched to your natural teeth. Veneers are permanently affixed, so you won’t have to worry about them coming loose or sliding around. If your teeth have been shortened because you grind your teeth, then veneers can fix that too. Since they’re color matched to your natural teeth, only you and your dentist will know that you have veneers. If you feel that your teeth are too big or too small or too square or too round, let your dentist know and your veneer installation can correct the problem.
Tooth color: Many of our lifestyle habits can adversely affect our teeth and cause them to become discolored and stained. Especially if commercial whitening procedures haven’t worked for you, veneers may be the answer to your dilemma. They can match the color of your natural teeth, or they can be several shades lighter.
Alignment and spacing: Small gaps or misaligned teeth can be corrected through the use of dental veneers, especially if you’re reluctant to endure the ordeal of braces. Veneers can provide you with white teeth that are evenly spaced and in proper alignment, so call our Roswell office today to schedule a consultation.
During your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth to ensure that you’re a good candidate for veneers. We’ll provide you with a porcelain veneers cost estimate, so that you’ll know exactly the fees that you’ll incur. If budgetary constraints are an issue, ask us about our payment options. We want our patients to have the dental treatments they need without having to worry about financial constraints. Call our Roswell office if you want additional information on our payment options for the porcelain veneers cost.
During the appointment for your porcelain veneers procedure, your dentist will make a mold of your teeth. This will be used to ensure that your veneers have the best possible fit. Depending on the style of veneer you select, the dentist might need to remove 1mm or less of enamel from your natural teeth. This is to ensure proper adhesion of the veneers, and it’s a painless procedure. Once your veneers are installed, they won’t move or stain and they’ll be as comfortable as your natural teeth.
Veneers and porcelain crowns are both made from porcelain, both are permanently affixed to the teeth, and both provide aesthetic appeal. Crowns, however, cover the entire tooth, whereas veneers are applied only to the front surface of the tooth. Crowns are used on the back teeth and molars because more structural stability is needed for the chewing function.
If bruxism, trauma, age or decay has caused the loss of structural stability in your back teeth, then your dentist may recommend one or more crowns. If you need aesthetic appeal for your front teeth, then veneers may work satisfactorily.
Veneers are permanently adhered to your teeth, and unless they are damaged due to trauma or decay, they should last for years. Many patients report that their veneers last for decades. Veneers should be treated like your natural teeth and not used to open bottles and bags, and they should be brushed and flossed at least daily. With proper care and maintenance, your veneers should last for a very long time.
Veneers should be maintained in the same manner as you maintain your natural teeth. Regular dental checkups, and daily brushing and flossing should keep your veneers in good condition. Be sure to never use them for opening containers or biting off a string or any activity other than chewing. Use caution when biting into hard substances. If you grind your teeth at night, you might consider purchasing a night guard to protect your veneers. If you have additional questions about maintaining your veneers, call our Roswell office and we’ll be happy to answer them.
