To look at veneers before they are attached to your teeth, they wouldn’t seem like very much at first sight. They are thin porcelain shells. But when they are put in front of your teeth that have aesthetic flaws and imperfections, something fantastic happens. The appearance is one that is completely natural. It’s as if you replaced the teeth that were causing you to feel self-conscious. But it’s much easier than that here at McRae Family Dental.
The process of getting veneers is quite simple, and may take as few as three visits from start to finish. First, you will come in for an examination and consultation. It’s important to make sure that you are a good candidate for veneers, as well as for our cosmetic dentist in Athens to answer all your questions. If you’re prepared to move forward, impressions are taken. The dental lab uses them as a blueprint to make your new veneers. Porcelain is the most popular material for this treatment because it is durable, tooth-colored, and it resists stains, such as those from tobacco, coffee, tea, wine, berries, and more. You will then return to our office to have a fitting done. You may require some adjustments so that they look and feel in line with your preferences. The final step is to bond them to the fronts of your teeth. This is done by first filing a small amount of material from the teeth getting the veneers. The reason for this is to make certain that all of your teeth, both with or without veneers, are even. Our cosmetic dentist in Athens can assure you that with proper care, they will last you for 10 to 15 years, and possibly longer.
You shouldn’t have to deal with chipped, misshapen, crooked, or discolored teeth; or any of the other issues that may cause you dissatisfaction with your smile. Contact us right now to book an appointment with our cosmetic dentist in Athens.
