Solve These 3 Cosmetic Issues With Veneers

Marietta GA Cosmetic Dentistry

Veneers are one of the most revolutionary treatments in cosmetic dentistry. However, the concept of veneers is not new. Veneers were first used in 1928 by a Hollywood dentist to alter the appearance of an actor’s teeth. Since then, the techniques and materials of cosmetic veneers have advanced and improved drastically over the years. Modern cosmetic veneers are ultra-thin and made of strong, natural-looking porcelain. Most importantly, they have the ability to instantly conceal a wide range of aesthetic concerns.

Porcelain veneers are most commonly used to address the following three cosmetic dental issues:

  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Uneven gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Slight tooth misalignments

When there is an unsightly front tooth that sticks out from the rest of your smile, it can wreak havoc on your self-confidence. In fact, you may find yourself putting your hand over your mouth when you laugh or awkwardly keeping your lips shut when you smile for pictures. Veneers are a two-visit treatment that can change that – for life!

You Should Know

Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth. Since veneers look so natural, it isn’t always necessary to place multiple veneers. In many cases, just one or two veneers can meet your goals. Veneers are also a purely cosmetic treatment, which means there’s no need to place them on teeth that don’t show when you smile. They are commonly only used on the upper front teeth.

Another thing to keep in mind is that veneers can’t actually straighten a tooth, change its size or shift a tooth. Instead, it permanently covers up the imperfection so that  no one ever knows what’s underneath. Speaking of permanent, your veneers are also irreversible since a small portion of your natural teeth must be shaved off to place the veneer. Don’t worry; you will not want to go back to your old smile after attaining a beautiful set of teeth with veneers. They are even stain-resistant so you can keep that balanced, white smile for years to come.

To learn more about your candidacy for cosmetic veneers as well as what the procedure entails, please call Dr. Gilreath. We value the importance of a beautiful and confident smile!

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
