For many dental clinics, the first priority is to maintain the function of the teeth and keep the gums and jawbone healthy. But at Optima Dental, we also recognize the importance of a great smile. Here in our Lawrenceville Georgia clinic, we can help give you that perfect smile with cosmetic veneers.
What Exactly Are Cosmetic Veneers?
Veneers are cosmetic tools, which are used to improve the way your teeth look. A veneer is basically just a thin shell made from ceramic or porcelain, and it’s used to cover a wide variety of imperfections. These imperfections include stains which professional whitening can’t improve, a crack or a chip on a tooth, and even teeth that are misaligned. All these things aren’t good to look at, and they can truly mar the quality of your smile.
What Does The Process Involve?
The process takes two or three visits to our clinic. The first visit includes an extensive discussion regarding the use of the veneers. Its shape will be determined in the discussion, and of course we will also talk about your own objectives and anticipated results. We’ll want to see what you will look like with your cosmetic restorations. We will come up with a plan regarding the number, shape, and placement of the cosmetic veneers in your mouth.
Your teeth are then prepared for the placement of the veneers. This process can be done on your first visit, or on your second visit to the clinic. Even though veneers are very thin, they still add to the thickness of your teeth. Your teeth are prepared to handle the additional thickness, and then we make an impression of your prepared teeth.
We will send your dental impression to our lab, where the veneers are fabricated. It’s an exacting process involving highly skilled technicians and state of the art tools. It may take up to two weeks to complete the fabrication. Once the veneers are ready, you will need to go to our clinic so we can put them securely in place.
Advantages of Veneers
Veneers look completely natural, and they can last for a very long time. They don’t change color over time and are resistant to stains. They don’t scratch easily as well. It may take a decade before you will ever need to replace them.
With the veneers in place, you’ll be able to smile more confidently. You know for a fact that your imperfections are covered up, and what people see (and what you see in the mirror) is a great set of teeth free from stains and chips.
