Do you have chips or cracks in your teeth? If your teeth are otherwise healthy, Veneers provide a flawless tooth surface. Are your teeth yellow or gray? Veneers Atlanta can fix that, too. Veneers can be fabricated in any shade to perk up your smile while still blending naturally with your skin tones.
Veneers are made out of a ceramic material that is tooth-like in color. It is a shell that fits over the surface of the tooth after the tooth is filed down enough for the veneer to hold onto the tooth.
Veneers are a way to have a perfect smile no matter what your teeth looked like in the past. Even if you were born with teeth mottling that occurred from antibiotics your mother used during pregnancy, it’s possible to still have a perfect smile with veneers.
Most commonly, veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin. The good news is that composite veneers can be created inside your mouth while you’re in the dentist chair if the dentist has CAD/CAM technology. Customized porcelain and composite resin veneers can also be sent out to a dental laboratory to be created.
Veneers are recommended for those whose teeth are pretty badly shaped, not for those who have teeth that are adequate in both functionality and esthetic appeal.
Veneers can also replace a dental crown. They are thin and porcelain veneers can break; you may not be able to eat hard vegetables like carrot sticks with veneers.
To many people, veneers mean transformation into a whole new life where they can smile freely once again.
What Can You Expect from Your Veneers?
Veneers can last for years, depending on how well you take care of them. Because veneers are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping. However, it is important to maintain regular oral hygiene, to avoid bad habits such as biting nails or chewing ice and to visit us regularly for routine cleaning and exams. These precautions will help ensure that your veneers will last a long time and keep looking good as new.
