If you’re looking for a Hollywood smile, dental veneers are the perfect solution. A porcelain or composite overlay is fitted to your teeth to change their shape, fill gaps, or change their shade. The goal is to build a beautiful smile that boosts your confidence for every part of your life. Ask our dentist today about Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta’s veneers.
There are two kinds of material that dentists use for dental veneers. Resin composite veneers are easy to apply in just 1 visit, and can be less invasive than porcelain veneers, and are more affordable. Porcelain veneers are much longer lasting, and last 15-25 years with proper care instead of 7-10 for resin. They can crack if improperly cared for, though regular maintenance and care should prevent that.
Fitting veneers on your teeth sometimes require removing a small layer of enamel exactly as thick as the veneer. The veneer is then cemented into place. To fit porcelain veneers, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab, where a technician will create a customized veneer to fit you perfectly.
Taking care of dental veneers is surprisingly easy. If you do all the normal oral maintenance habits – brush your teeth twice a day, floss, don’t grind your teeth or crunch on hard foods – then they should last for years. If you grind your teeth at night, Dr. Brett Langston might be able to prescribe a night guard to prevent grinding.
