Things To Know About Dental Veneers For A Healthy Smile

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers are tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are made of porcelain or resin composite materials that are permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers can be used to treat a different number of cosmetic concerns like chipped, misshapen, discolored, or crooked teeth.

Dental veneers are one of the most popular options when it comes to getting a beautiful smile. There are a few things to know about dental veneers for a healthy smile. If you want to achieve your ideal smile, contact us now or book an appointment with the best cosmetic dentist in Marietta, GA. If you are considering veneers to fix your smile, a few things have to be kept in mind:

  • Veneers Are Irreversible

Dental veneers are irreversible as a layer of your enamel is filed Dow to make room for the veneers. You will always need to have veneers placed in these teeth. Luckily today’s veneers are long-lasting. If you are looking to get dental veneers in Marietta, GA, call us or book an appointment today.

  • Dental Veneers Last For Long

Dental veneers are strong and can last up to 15 years and some veneers last as long as 25 years depending on your oral hygiene. It is important to treat your veneers like your normal teeth. Therefore you need to follow good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing which will help ensure that your veneers stay in the best shape possible. Contact us to get dental checkups or cleanings to avoid any dental problems. 

To ensure long-lasting veneers you need to take certain precautions. These precautions include:

  • Avoid chewing on pens, ice, or your fingernails
  • Avoid using your teeth to open the packaging.
  • Avoid chewing with your front teeth. 
  • If you grind or clench your teeth at night you should get a retainer or a mouth guard.
  • Veneers Can Fix Various Dental Issues

At Gilreath Family Dentistry we provide customized veneers that will give you the perfect smile and resolve all your dental issues. It can also fix the following dental issues:

  • Chipped, crooked broken teeth
  • Uneven or irregularly shaped tooth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Choose The Right Color

People think whiter is better with porcelain veneers, but you shouldn’t select a color that’s too white to give a natural look. A soft natural white is a right choice for most. However, some people gravitate toward opaque white, which does not look natural.  At Gilreath Family Dentistry, our dentists in Marietta, GA, use special cement that can modify the color of the veneer to give the most natural look possible. 

  • Dental Veneers Do Not Work For Everyone

Dental veneers are not suitable for everyone as the veneers are bonded to your teeth. It may not be an option if you have one or more of the following:

  • Decayed, missing, or weak teeth
  • Active or recurrent gum disease
  • Grinding or clenching your teeth

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we examine your teeth and provide you with the best solution. Contact us now to get the best cosmetic dentist in Marietta, GA.

Susan

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
