Our Atlanta porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to finally have the smile that you’ve always wanted. Custom porcelain veneers can create a flawless, brilliant smile – that lasts. We can help you have a brilliant, even smile with custom-manufactured porcelain veneers.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we love to help our clients achieve a picture-perfect smile, while they enjoy our luxurious spa-like environment. A porcelain veneer is a thin porcelain shell, bonded to the front of your existing tooth structure to create a perfectly natural appearing, white, flawless tooth surface. Veneers have a very natural translucent appearance.

What can veneers address?

By fine-tuning position, shape, and tooth color, our Atlanta veneers can resolve a range of cosmetic dental problems, including:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Oddly-shaped teeth
  • Gaps
  • Discolored teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Restore a natural-looking fullness around the mouth to reduce fine lines, or “anti-aging dentistry.”

The Process of Your Veneers

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, our dentists examine your teeth, listen to your concerns and discuss your treatment options. We’ll take images of your teeth, discuss your cosmetic goals and offer a custom treatment plan, depending on your goals and expectations, whether that entails a full set of veneers or just a few.

Treatment Planning

We’ll curate a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired goals. We prepare dental models of your teeth and determine the ideal color shade for your veneers. We send these impressions and molds to one of the best ceramists in the country, who then creates a “wax-up” veneer model allowing us to preview the final results before we start working on your mouth, ensuring optimal results.

Preparation

In preparation, we contour your teeth’s surface lightly, preparing them to accommodate the veneers. We are extremely conservation with the contouring, only etching the surface enamel as much as is necessary to accommodate the final veneers, using the wax model to determine which teeth need how much contouring.

Temporary Veneers

After etching your dental surfaces, we fit temporary veneers over your teeth which serve as a test-drive for the final veneers. Temporary veneers allow us to determine if we need to make any cosmetic or functional modifications in the final veneers, whether too long, too round, etc. Permanent veneer preparation requires 2 to 3 week, so you’ll have ample time to wear temporary veneers and report to us if there are any issues.

Final Bonding

When the permanent veneers are prepared, you come for your final seating appointment. We remove the temporary veneers and place the porcelain veneers in place temporarily, using water or glycerin to ensure they fit correctly, giving us a final chance to modify the veneers’ shape before permanently bonding them to your teeth. If everything is aligned and alright, we treat your teeth with chemicals and use a special cement to bond the prepared permanent veneers, then use a special light to activate the bonding process. Once that’s done, you can go about your day with a beautiful smile, and we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment after one or two weeks.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

That question is like asking how long your natural teeth will last. Several factors will impact the life of your Atlanta porcelain veneers, including how well you care for them, and the condition of your natural teeth, bone, and gums, both before and after placing your veneers. The porcelain used to create your custom veneers is harder than natural tooth enamel, does not wear out, and resists staining from wine, coffee, tea, and other dark-colored foods and beverages.

There is no standard rule on how long custom veneers can last, but many of our clients have had them in place for 20 years or longer. With the high quality of porcelain used in our veneers, along with our detailed attention to fabrication and placement, and our ongoing care for your mouth, teeth, and gums, your porcelain veneers could potentially last a lifetime.

Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

In addition to being the most aesthetic option for smile enhancement or restoration, porcelain can also be used to replace mercury fillings, old crowns, or to improve the condition of a damaged tooth. Porcelain veneers can be an alternative to braces, as they can be placed to resolve some cases of crooked teeth, gaps, and bite adjustments, with the problem solved in as little as two weeks. If you have undergone completed orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth, you may choose to have custom porcelain veneers as the final step in a perfectly aligned, brilliant smile.

Our Atlanta porcelain veneers are world-class in quality. Depending on the condition of your teeth and what you hope to achieve, our acclaimed cosmetic dentists will recommend the most effective treatment. Ready for a perfect smile? Talk to us about our custom porcelain veneers.

FAQ

How much do porcelain veneers cost?

The cost of porcelain veneers in Atlanta starts at $1750 per tooth. Higher quality porcelain veneers will save you money over time, as they are long-lasting, durable, and custom created to fit your teeth and mouth.

How can porcelain veneers be used as a part of a full mouth reconstruction?

If you have lost teeth due to injury or are missing teeth, then you may need dental implants. Porcelain veneers can complement those implants by enhancing your remaining teeth to match the new implanted tooth or crown.

Will I need multiple veneers?

Multiple veneers will typically produce the best result, especially as the four front teeth will look better as a whole when veneers are placed on all of them. This approach will create a more harmonious look to your teeth – and an amazing difference in your smile.
