Marietta Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin piece of porcelain about as thick as your fingernail that bonds to the front of your teeth. We use veneers as a cosmetic dental treatment to change the shape, color and size of the teeth. We also use them as an “instant orthodontics” treatment since the front of the teeth can be aligned to give the illusion that the teeth are straight. Porcelain veneers are a conservative approach and are one of the most utilized cosmetic dentistry procedure. They mimic tooth structure better than any other dental restoration. Dr. Gilreath and Dr. Nezafat produce extremely realistic veneers that provide function and beauty… and we do it while you wait in our office. The Same Day!
Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?
Well, just about anyone who wants to improve their smile. If you have worn or discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, teeth that are out of line or uneven or spaces in between your teeth, you can probably restore them with porcelain veneers to obtain a beautiful smile. Our doctors use their passion for artistry to produce extremely lifelike veneers.
Everyone likes to look at a beautiful smile and study after study show that individuals with beautiful smiles are more successful in their business relationships. Many people are unhappy with their smiles. They feel embarrassed to smile and sometimes even talking to other people can make them feel self-conscious. And many of these individuals don’t want crowns on their front teeth. These patients are often great candidates for veneers. To place a veneer, a very small amount of tooth is shaved off. This gives the veneer a place to sit on the tooth. When bonded into place, Dr. Gilreath and Dr. Nezafat use special cements that can modify the color of the veneer to make it have the most natural look possible. And veneers are not just for young people. In fact, people of all ages get veneers! It can be a life-changing event for many people and is one of the most fulfilling treatments we perform in our practice.
What is involved in getting porcelain teeth veneers?
At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we’ve placed hundreds of veneers and work hard to make each and every case a successful one that you will be proud of. In order to do this, we use a very systematic approach.
First, we sit down and talk with you. We listen to your concerns and your wants. We then take a series of digital photographs and show them to you. Using these, we talk together about how to best approach your smile enhancement. We listen to you and make a treatment plan that is customized to your wants and desires–whether it’s a single veneer or 18 veneers! Once we decide on a treatment plan, we can being.
Using our completely digital technology systems, we make a digital impression (no gooey molds) of your teeth. Then we do minimal preparations on the teeth (just enough to let the veneer have a firm, precise seat). Then we scan the teeth again and start making the veneers in our office. You can sit and relax, or you can go back home and relax for a few hours.
When you come back, we’ll put the veneers in (before we cement them) and let you look and make any comments. If you love them (and you will), we cement them and you’re done. It’s that simple. No temporaries to come off and irritate your gums. Just an easy, fool-proof process that we’ve done again and again to high acclaim. The result will be incredibly lifelike restorations that will look and feel like real teeth.
