Chances are, you have seen someone with a gorgeous smile and wondered how you too can have such a flawless grin. However, it is also likely that many of the people whose smiles you have noticed also have porcelain veneers. These are an amazingly effective method for getting a picture-perfect smile, addressing many esthetic or cosmetic issues with the teeth and gums, and a service available to patients of Old Milton Dental in Alpharetta, GA.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Thin, custom made shells that are crafted of durable porcelain, dental veneers are created to bond to the teeth and give the appearance of a straight, brilliant, and supremely healthy smile. When done by a skilled and experienced dentist, porcelain veneers look and feel natural, improve the appearance of the teeth and gums, and function identically to your original teeth.
Are Veneers a Good Solution for Me?
You may wonder if you are a good candidate for dental veneers, and generally they are recommended to patients of Old Milton Dental who have any of the following concerns:
- Stained teeth that cannot be successfully whitened
- Chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth
- Unevenly spaced or gapped teeth that are not appropriate for orthodontic care
- Teeth that are poorly aligned or oddly shaped
The best way to determine if dental veneers are a good answer for you is to book a visit with us and discuss your concerns. Your dentist will do an examination and discuss the different options, including porcelain veneers.
If they are the best route, impressions are made and custom created in a special dental lab. When they arrive, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers, which may include gently removing some of the outermost enamel. The veneers are then bonded to your teeth and you leave the office with a perfect and bright smile.
Strong and impervious to staining, your new porcelain veneers will require the same sort of upkeep as your natural teeth. Annual or bi-annual cleanings are always suggested, and during each visit your dentist will make sure that any dental veneers are secure, remaining in good condition, and still providing you with comfortable performance.
Though not an instant smile makeover, veneers are a wonderfully reliable way to get the best smile possible. With the most natural appearance, veneers can help you overcome a long list of cosmetic dental concerns without any difficulties. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
