Veneers Atlanta: The Must-Know Guide to the Procedure

Tooth problems are not only a concern for patients' overall health, but they can also make them feel less confident. But this is a problem which has a solution.

Through veneers, Atlanta dentists can help you obtain that healthy smile.

Dental veneers are a great option in case you have crooked, smaller, or chipped tooth.

Want to know more about how they are put on and what are the main benefits? In this article we will provide you with the following information:

  • How the procedure will go
  • The benefits of veneers
  • How to maintain your new smile

Let's start, shall we?

How Veneers Are Put on - The Procedure

First off, your dentist will start with a smile analysis. Veneers are tailored according to each patient, so this part is important.

To apply veneers, Atlanta dentists will need to remove enamel off the affected teeth. Otherwise, the new material will not fit properly and your tooth functionality will be affected.

A small amount of resin is placed between the tooth and veneer. Then, it is hardened with a specialized light.

There areoptions called minimal prep veneers which don't require your practitioner to remove so much enamel. But they aren't for everyone.

If you want to find out whether you're a good candidate for these veneers, schedule a consultation today.

After Veneers - You Can Enjoy These Benefits

We'll go right ahead and list them for you. Having these benefits at hand will be useful if you want to make a recommendation for a friend or family member:

  • Fix minor tooth problems such as gaps or overlaps.
  • Veneers blend naturally in your smile.
  • They resist staining: whether it'd be coffee, wine, or others.
  • Can make discolored and stained teeth appear white again.

Plus, if you have teeth sensitive to bleaching or whitening chemicals, veneers might be your only choice.

Now off to more useful information: how you will need to maintain them after the procedure.

How to Keep Your Smile Looking Beautiful

You were probably expecting some kind of special cleaning solution to be used, right?

Well, we have good news for you. You can treat veneers as normal teeth. Brush twice every day and floss regularly.

Just remember to actually do it. You wouldn't want your investment to go down the drain with the rinsing water.

An important detail you should mention to your dentist is if you grind your teeth. They will probably be able to offer you a bite guard to protect your veneers.

You will need to return to your dentist for consultations afterward. They will check your veneers to see if everything is okay and recommend anything else you might need to do.

Are There Any Alternatives?

Well, besides veneers, Atlanta dentists can also personalize crowns for their patients. You might want to check out our article comparing the two solutions.

What you need to know is crowns are used mostly as a last result when nothing can be done for the tooth.
