FAQ’s on Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Dental Treatment Marietta GA

If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, there’s a good chance that porcelain veneers can fix it. Once placed, veneers can immediately hide a wide variety of dental imperfections, from those you were born with to flaws that have developed over time. Veneers are considered one of the most dramatic and life-changing treatments in cosmetic dentistry. Therefore, it is understandable if you have questions about them.

Here are some frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers to help you determine if they are right for you:

Q: Are veneers thick? Will I feel them in my mouth?
A: No, veneers are no thicker than a contact lens or your fingernail. Once they are placed, it is very easy to get used to the way they feel in your mouth. Plus, veneers are only placed on the front surface of your tooth.
Q: How long do veneer last?
A: Properly installed and cared for, veneers can last from 10-20 years.
Q: How are they attached? Can they fall off?
A: Veneers are adhered to your tooth surface with a remarkably strong bonding compound. They are designed to withstand years of everyday dental function.
Q: Do veneers look like natural teeth?
A: Veneers are made of porcelain, a durable material that looks very similar to your natural tooth. Not only can porcelain be custom matched in color, but the material displays a seamless luster and translucency just like real teeth.
Q: Do veneers stain?
A: No, porcelain veneers stain-resistant and decay resistant!
Q: Are veneers permanent?
A: In order to bond the veneer to the front surface of your tooth or teeth, it is necessary to shave off a tiny portion of your tooth structure. This makes veneers an irreversible procedure. Don’t worry – patients have no regrets when choosing veneers for their smile makeover. In fact, many celebrities have cosmetic veneers.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
