Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that permanently adhere to the front surface of your individual teeth. Each veneer is custom-fit for each tooth and can remedy a variety of common dental issues, including:
Porcelain veneers look most like natural teeth, and your dentist can customize the size, shape, and color of your veneers to give you a more uniform, gorgeous smile. So, if your teeth are not as bright as you’d like them to be, or you have a gap between your teeth, veneers can transform your smile, so you feel less self-conscious and more confident as you navigate the world.
Veneers are a conservative aesthetic treatment for your teeth since the procedure itself is minimally invasive. Most of the time, to prepare your teeth for veneers, your dentist only needs to remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the surface of each tooth that’s getting a new veneer. This is to accommodate the wafer-thin veneer so it fits perfectly with your other teeth.
During treatment, you probably won’t need an anesthetic because there’s minimal discomfort associated with veneer application. Your comfort is one of the highest priorities at Smile Studio of Buford, so if you’re concerned, a local anesthetic is available.
At your first appointment, your dentist buffs away about a half-millimeter of enamel from the surface of each tooth. Then, the team takes impressions of your teeth with state-of-the-art digital imaging technology. Your veneers are then custom-made for your teeth.
When you return for a second appointment, your dentist bonds each veneer to each of your teeth to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Veneers also add strength to your teeth, like an added layer of protection. As long as you care for them and maintain good oral hygiene, including routine dental cleanings, your veneers can last for many years with proper maintenance.
Caring for your new veneers is easy. Simply brush and floss your teeth like you always do and avoid biting your nails, chewing on pen caps, or opening packaging with your teeth. Like your natural teeth, veneers can chip or crack if you’re not careful.
