Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Dr. Mandalia at Buckhead Dental Care custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers cover blemishes such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They can also restore delicate teeth.
Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. Dr. Mandalia explains your options and suggests the best type of veneers for you.
What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?
Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you come back for a second appointment. Here, a skilled cosmetic dental specialist readies your current teeth for the shape of the veneers by scraping off a minimal amount of enamel from the surface. After your teeth have been prepared, your dental practitioner makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create your custom veneers.
You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, the dental specialist applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!
What are the benefits of veneers?
Veneers are a natural-looking means to correct misshapen, cracked, or crooked teeth. They offer these benefits, too:
- Resistance to stains
- Well-tolerated by your gums
- Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
- Look great with no invasive dental work
- Strengthen teeth
- More cost-effective than other dental solutions like crowns
