Porcelain veneers from the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can give you the smile of your dreams. Veneers correct a variety of imperfections in teeth. They enhance teeth that are chipped or discolored, close gaps, and make your teeth look straighter without braces. But there are several factors that can affect the results you receive with porcelain veneers. Consider four of them.

  1. Unhealthy Teeth or Gums

When your gums aren’t healthy, they become swollen and irritated. Swollen gum tissue increases the chances that your porcelain veneers won’t be a perfect fit or that your gums will later recede around the veneers. Unhealthy receding gums will detract from the appearance of your smile and make it easy for bacteria to leak behind your veneers. At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before you receive veneers.

  1. Failure to Examine the Dentist’s Work

For most dentists, it’s difficult to achieve beautiful results with cosmetic dentistry. So how do you know what to expect? At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, you will be shown before-and-after photos of our patients—not stock photos—to give you confidence that you’ll receive aesthetically pleasing results. Visit our smile gallery page to see examples of smile transformations completed by our dentists.

  1. Not Selecting an Accredited Cosmetic Dentist

In the United States, any dentist can perform cosmetic work and, depending on local laws, even claim to be a cosmetic dentist. At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists have demonstrated cosmetic expertise by becoming accredited members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). And Dr. King has achieved status as an AACD fellow.

  1. Insisting on a Bargain

It can be tempting to shop around for bargain cosmetic dentistry, particularly when dental insurance doesn’t provide any coverage for it. Our dentists at the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry often see patients who are distraught after receiving faulty cosmetic dentistry from other dental practices that aren’t skilled in the art. Unfortunately, the only way to correct a serious issue with porcelain veneers is to have them redone. Cheap cosmetic dentistry is more expensive and time-consuming than having it completed correctly the first time.
