Don’t just live with a cracked or crooked smile. Let dental veneers change this!

If unsightly dental problems are keeping you from the perfect smile, then it might be time to consider how cosmetic dentistry in Atlanta could finally transform your smile into the one you want. Don’t just accept cracked, chipped and misshapen teeth when thereVeneers is an easy and minimally invasive solution. In only two visits you could have a completely different smile.

About Dental Veneers

For those looking to hide certain dental imperfections without invasive or time-consuming treatments, dental veneers can replace your smile in only two visits. These tiny shells made from porcelain fit over the front of your teeth to transform and enhance your smile, repairing and masking unsightly flaws.

Dental veneers are able to conceal a variety of dental problems: small twists, gaps and crowding, as well as chips, cracks and severe stains.

Getting Dental Veneers

During your first visit your Atlanta cosmetic dentist will perform a little tooth preparation before putting on your veneers. While there is minimal tooth preparation involved in this procedure, we still need to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth beforehand. This process is quick and not painful.

Once we remove some enamel to make room for the veneers, we will take impressions of your teeth to send to a lab. This lab will then custom design your veneers. During your second visit, we will apply a clear resin between your teeth and the veneers and use a special laser to harden the resin and veneers to your smile.
