You can expect a range of benefits when you visit Creative Dentistry of Atlanta in Atlanta, GA, for veneers, including beautifully aligned teeth.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are thin shells made with either porcelain material or a composite resin. Veneers are used to recreate the natural look of your teeth. At Creative Dentistry of Atlanta in Atlanta, GA, we create your custom made veneers and bond them to the surface of your teeth with a special bonding material. These porcelain shells can be used to change the shape, color, length, or size of your teeth.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can help solve an array of cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Wear and tear – As you age, your teeth begin to naturally wear down. It is common for aged teeth to have an uneven appearance, cracks, chips, and/or discoloration.
- Worn enamel – Over time, enamel (the thin & hard substance covering teeth) becomes worn, discolored, and dulled. The most common causes of worn enamel are due to consuming coffee, tea, soft drinks, using tobacco products, certain medications, and improper oral hygiene.
- Uneven teeth – One common cause of uneven teeth is the result of your permanent teeth not coming in straight during childhood, and the teeth continue to shift as you enter adulthood. An additional cause of uneven teeth can be due to teeth grinding. Teeth that are too short can often be lengthened with veneers.
- Stained and/or Discolored – Veneers can significantly improve the whiteness and brightness of teeth that have become stained and/or discolored.
Porcelain veneers are designed to improve your natural smile. They are custom made to fit your teeth and are colored to match your natural teeth. To maintain your new, bright, and healthy smile, it is important to practice good oral hygiene and avoid eating hard foods that may damage your porcelain veneers.
