Get started today and, in just a few visits, you’ll have all the reasons to smile with stain-resistant, long-lasting veneers.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Veneers

Dental veneers achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed about by bonding thin but strong ceramic sheets to your natural teeth. This procedure covers up broken, stained or crooked teeth with a brighter, more streamlined look. If cosmetic enhancement is something you are interested in or if you are unhappy with the current appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers alter the look of your teeth to improve the overall effect of your smile.

Veneers are often referred to as “the celebrity smile,” but they’re more achievable than you think. The results you want are available at Madison Yards Dentistry in Atlanta and they’ll last for years with proper care.

What To Know Before Getting Veneers

Veneers are completely customizable. Whether you’re electing to have a single veneer done or a whole row built to cover your teeth, we design them to fit perfectly within your mouth. The color we typically recommend is a translucent white that mimics natural teeth. Our team of best in class dentists take the time to decide on the perfect shade based on your preference, coloring and characteristics. Most patients don’t need the brightest shade available because it often looks unnatural.

Since veneers are translucent, your original teeth matter and play a part when it comes to deciding on shade. When we choose the best color of white for you, we consider:

  • Age
  • Color of natural teeth
  • Skin tone
  • Gender
  • Shape of your smile and face

This cosmetic procedure is a multiple appointment process. We work with you to create a customized treatment plan that ends with the porcelain veneers you were envisioning.

Procedure

Our dentists are trained for cosmetic and restorative dentistry services. We can help make this process as easy and comfortable as possible. Our practice offers sedation options with your comfort in mind. Feel free to ask any questions you may have on the matter.

The veneer process does require multiple trips to the dentist, but it’s routinely done within two to four appointments. At your first consultation, we’ll go over treatment plans and decide which veneers best fit your needs. This appointment is all about discussing your expectations and making sure veneers are a suitable choice for your mouth. It could also include X-rays and impressions of your teeth being made.

A dental laboratory will make your veneers based off of this impression. In the meantime, your teeth are prepared for veneer placement. This is where room is made in your mouth for the new cosmetic prosthetic. The final appointment is when the veneers are adjusted for color and fit before being bonded to your teeth. The only step after that is a follow-up appointment to check in on everything.

Concerns

Figuring out if veneers are right for you can be a big decision and we want to help! So we’re debunking some of the most common concerns and myths surrounding veneers.

Dental veneers don’t hurt your natural teeth, although there is a chance they’ll need to be filed down to make room for the veneers to fit in your mouth. Technology today means that less dental work will need to be done prior to the procedure.

Sensitivity will be less of an issue. Veneers don’t have enamel that can wear down and your natural enamel will most likely be unaffected.

They aren’t a permanent procedure, but they are long-lasting. While they will have to be replaced or updated sometime in the future, this also means that if you ever decide veneers aren’t right for you, you aren’t stuck with them.

Porcelain veneers can’t be stained by drinks like coffee and red wine. Porcelain isn’t porous, so it won’t be affected by food and drinks the way enamel is. Your new teeth will stay white!

While eating, certain foods will require more care because of the nature of porcelain. Apples and meat are some of the foods that need more careful chewing, but most dietary habits can carry on unchanged.
