Many surveys show that your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Other surveys reveal that smiling helps make a lasting impression. But what if the condition of your teeth makes you hesitant about smiling or even affects your self-confidence? Porcelain veneers can be a life-changing way to boost your self-confidence and your social interactions. At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, our accredited cosmetic dentist can use veneers to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of porcelain designed to fit on the teeth that show when you smile. At Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we use our own brand of custom ultra-thin veneers called Pearls. After your natural teeth are prepared, veneers are bonded to the front of them to enhance your smile. You’ll be able to smile with confidence.
How Can They Help?
Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile in several ways.
- Alignment and Spacing
Gaps, alignment, and crooked teeth can detract from your smile. Although orthodontic treatment is needed in severe cases, porcelain veneers can correct minor issues. After your teeth are prepared, porcelain veneers are bonded to them. No one will be able to tell there were imperfections in your teeth.
Tooth color that is affected by age, time, genetics, or other issues can be transformed with porcelain veneers—especially when whitening treatment doesn’t work. At times, alternative treatment to teeth whitening is required for effective and natural-looking whitening. Some examples include:
- Fluorosis stains
- Tetracycline stains
- Discoloration caused by genetics or certain medication
There are a variety of reasons that people are unhappy with the size of their teeth. Porcelain veneers can improve tooth size in a variety of circumstances, including:
- Genetically small teeth
- Teeth that become worn over time
- Adult teeth that fail to erupt and replace primary teeth
Poor tooth shape can be caused by wear, genetics, or trauma. Tooth shape can also affect the personality of your smile. Porcelain veneers can help your smile convey a variety of characteristics, including youth, boldness, or maturity.
