Getting dental veneers in Atlanta 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 porcelain veneers will be customized to match the color, size, and shape you desire. If you decide to get porcelain dental veneers, you come back to the office in Atlanta for tooth preparation and modeling. Atlanta dentist Dr. Langston prepares the surface of your teeth for porcelain veneers by cleaning them and removing a small amount of enamel. Removing the enamel ensures the dental veneers will be flush with the rest of your natural teeth.
The team makes a model of your teeth that they use to create your porcelain veneers. When you come for veneer placement, Dr. Langston checks each dental 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 cosmetic dentistry procedure can’t be reversed. Most dental veneers last 7-10 years with proper oral hygiene and the right care of a patient, and you’ll need to get a new set of porcelain veneers after that.
