What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment to improve the look of your smile. Veneers are very thin overlays placed on the front of your teeth to fix cosmetic imperfections like gaps, chips, and discoloration.
Veneers are typically made from porcelain or resin. You can get a veneer on just one tooth, or you can get a smile makeover with veneers on all of your front teeth. Custom-designed for every patient, veneers look natural and beautiful inside the mouth.
Dr. Langston and the team often recommend porcelain veneers to patients who want to transform their smiles. Porcelain not only mimics the light-reflecting properties of tooth enamel for a natural look; it’s also stain-resistant to keep your smile whiter longer.
What Can Veneers Fix?
If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, a smile makeover with porcelain veneers might be the answer you’re looking for.
Porcelain veneers can perfect the look of teeth that are:
- Worn down
- Irregularly shaped
What is the Process for Getting Dental Veneers?
Getting veneers begins with a consultation and oral exam at Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta. The team evaluates your mouth and talks with you about your goals for treatment. Your veneers will be customized to match the color, size, and shape you desire. If you decide to get veneers, you come back to the office for tooth preparation and modeling. Dr. Langston prepares the surface of your teeth for veneers by cleaning them and removing a small amount of enamel. Removing the enamel ensures the veneers will be flush with the rest of your teeth.
The team makes a model of your teeth that they use to create your veneers. When you come for veneer placement, Dr. Langston checks each veneer to ensure the perfect fit. He bonds the veneers to the front of your teeth to special cement. After bonding, the team evaluates your bite and makes final adjustments.
Dental veneers are permanent and the procedure can’t be reversed. Most veneers last 7-10 years with the right care, and you’ll need to get a new set of veneers after that.
