Are you interested in achieving a more attractive smile? Have you been struggling with imperfections such as broken, chipped, or cracked teeth? Has teeth bleaching been ineffective in reducing stains and discoloration in your smile? Patients that are constantly battling with problem teeth often discover that porcelain veneers may be the best solution to their dental concerns.

Porcelain veneers, also referred to as dental veneers, are restorations made to disguise imperfections in the teeth. Made of very thin pieces of porcelain, they are bonded to the natural teeth to transform a smile. They are affordable, simple, and effective at providing cosmetic improvement. Veneers look completely natural and are long lasting, making dramatic changes to one’s appearance.

Veneers are versatile. They are used in cosmetic dentistry to cover problem areas of the smile. Patients may use just one veneer, or may complete an entire smile makeover with a set of veneers. They are used for covering teeth that are crooked, misaligned, broken, chipped, permanently stained, or misshapen. They can even be used to change the size and shape of a tooth. The team at Smyrna Dental is proud to offer veneers, as well as other restorations that assist patients in achieving the smile of their dreams!

The process of receiving veneers is simple. Patients schedule their initial appointment with Smyrna Dental to have their teeth prepped. The dentist may remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth before taking impressions, which are sent to a dental lab. The lab will fabricate the veneers based on the dentist’s specifications, including color, shape, and overall appearance. Once the veneers are sent to the dental office, patients visit the dentist a second time for placement. The veneers are quickly bonded to the teeth and the patient is able to leave the dental office with a brand new smile!

With proper care, patients can enjoy their new veneers for decades. Patients are educated as to how to maintain their veneers properly, and are encouraged to visit their dentist at least twice a year for check-ups and professional cleanings. This will ensure the patient enjoys their radiant new smile for years to come, and can improve his or her oral health.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
