What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, shell-like pieces of tooth-colored material that are designed to cover and repair imperfections in your smile. They are designed to essentially replace the natural surface of your tooth! Veneers can correct blemishes such as chips, fractures, stains, discoloration, misshapen teeth, minor alignment problems, and more. They offer instant, beautiful results that will make you feel great about your smile!
What Types Of Veneers Do You Offer?
While many dental offices only offer traditional porcelain veneers (or do not place at all), both Dr. Reese and Dr. Smith have advanced training in several veneer systems, including Lumineers. We take your specific situation into account when helping you choose the right type of veneer for you. While we can prepare and place pretty much any type depending on your needs, there are two types that we work with regularly and would recommend for many situations:
Traditional Porcelain Veneers – These are the thickest type and can create the most dramatic results. They also, however, require the largest amount of preparation. Traditional ones are great for many situations, especially when trying to hide major flaws in your smile.
Lumineers Veneer – This type of ultra-thin veneer are designed to be much easier and less invasive to place than the traditional ones. In fact, they can be placed in just two visits to our office here in Acworth, GA! Because Lumineers are thinner, they sometimes are not recommended for covering very heavy staining or other situations where heavier coverage is necessary. However, they still produce amazing results and are actually our go-to type when recommending veneer placement.
How Dental Veneers Are Placed
Dental veneers are placed very similarly regardless of the type you choose. The thin piece of tooth-colored material is simply fitted and bonded directly to your tooth. The preparation, however, is what varies. For traditional porcelain, we must remove a small layer of enamel from the front of your tooth to make room for the veneer. Thinner veneers require very little or even no enamel to be removed before placement. Regardless of the type and level of preparation required to place it, the process is fairly quick and painless.
