More About Veneers

Veneers are made of thin porcelain and used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged. They fix a variety of issues, such as:

  • Stained or discolored teeth, usually a result of drinking coffee or tea, poor hygiene, smoking, chewing tobacco, or tetracycline-containing.
  • Mishappened teeth, like crooked, overcrowded, and irregularly shaped teeth.

When you come into the Woodstock and Kennesaw office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If they decide you are a good candidate, then they'll first deal with any underlying issues, like cavities, first.

Your dentist will then take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.

Your dentist will then remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth then cement the veneers. Your dentist removes some enamel, an irreversible process, you don't feel like your teeth are protruding. Your new veneers will feel smooth and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.

In order to take proper care of your veneers, you need to brush twice a day and floss, at least once before bed. Changing your toothbrush when it's frayed is important to ensure teeth are properly cleaned. You also want to make sure you use fluoride-containing toothpaste and water and eat healthy food like carrots that scrape teeth clean.
