Porcelain Veneers – Conyers, GA
Get a Flawless Smile with Veneers
If you have a less than perfect smile, you don’t need to live with the teeth nature gave you. Besides genetics, poor oral hygiene or trauma can also cause several cosmetic concerns that make you feel insecure about your teeth. We can transform your teeth and your confidence with cosmetic dentistry in Conyers. Porcelain veneers are a simple but effective solution to achieve drastic results. Your new smile will look natural using a minimally invasive treatment.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom-made thin shells bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Now, they are thinner than those used in the past thanks to porcelain. This allows the treatment to be minimally invasive because less of your tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process. Porcelain also closely mimics your enamel to create natural-looking results.
Bonding veneers to the surfaces of your teeth allows you to instantly hide several cosmetic imperfections. Overall, they improve the color, size, shape, and proportion of your teeth to get the smile of your dreams. Although veneers are thin, rest assured they can last for several years with the right aftercare to invest in your self-esteem.
What Can I Expect?
You first need a consultation with your dentist in Conyers to ensure veneers are right for you. If you’re a candidate, it will take 2 appointments to transform your smile. During your first visit, your teeth are cleaned, and a small amount of enamel is removed during the bonding process. This ensures they sit flush on your teeth.
We then take an impression of your mouth, which is needed to craft your veneers. The dental lab designs them to match your exact specifications. This can take a couple of weeks, so we attach temporary veneers in the meantime. In about 2 weeks, your final veneers are sent back to our office, so you can have them bonded to your teeth.
Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Generally, if you have good oral health, you are a candidate for veneers. They are effective for correcting several cosmetic flaws, such as:
- Dark tooth discoloration that won’t respond to whitening treatments.
- Chipped, cracked, shorter than average, or abnormally shaped teeth.
- Close gaps or make your teeth appear straighter without braces.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
On average, veneers need to be replaced every 10 years, but it’s not uncommon for them to last longer with the right aftercare, such as:
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste to clean your teeth twice a day.
- Use a high-quality floss to clean in between each tooth nightly.
- Wear an athletic mouthguard if playing sports.
- Do not use your teeth as tools to open packages.
- Do not chew on inedible objects.
- Visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
