Learn about veneers from your dentist in Roswell.

Unhappy with your smile? Porcelain veneers can make an imperfect smile look flawless. Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that areveneers attached to the front surfaces of teeth for an immediate smile transformation. Dr. Wyman Martin at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA, offers a full range of dental services. Here are five reasons to consider veneers.

#1- Fix Gapped Teeth

Gapped teeth are one of the most common cosmetic dental issues. Veneers are used to close small gaps between teeth. These ceramic shells fit snugly over your teeth to create an evenly-spaced smile.

#2- Restore Chipped Teeth

Chipping a tooth is a common phenomenon. Chipped teeth account for the majority of all dental injuries. Porcelain veneers can be used to repair chipped teeth. A dental veneer covers the front of the tooth with a thicker section to replace the chipped part of the tooth. 

#3- Cover Crooked Teeth

Crooked smile? Having crooked teeth isn't an uncommon problem. Veneers are placed over your own teeth to change the appearance of your smile.

#4- Whiten Your Smile

Stained teeth? Tooth discoloration is one of the most frequent reasons for seeking dental treatment. Coffee, red wine, tea, soda, and other beverages or foods can cause tooth discoloration. Porcelain veneers can give you a bright, white smile instantly. Beverages and foods do not stain dental veneers as they do real teeth because unlike the enamel on your teeth, ceramic is not porous. 

#5- Look Years Younger

The appearance of your teeth plays an important role in defining how young or old you look. If you want to look younger, getting dental veneers is a great place to start. Veneers will improve the appearance of your smile and make you look years younger. Who doesn't want to look younger or better?

Find out if you’re an ideal candidate for getting dental veneers.

Wondering if dental veneers could improve your smile? Well, you’ve certainly come to the right place. There is a reason these veneers restorations have become so popular and it’s possible that they could finally give you that dream smile. From the office of your Roswell dentist Dr. Wyman Martin, find out more about veneers and whether they are right for you.

Some of the problems that porcelain veneers can address include:

  • Stained or discolored teeth (stains that are resistant to teeth whitening)
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Minor crookedness or overlapping
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Misshapen or malformed teeth
  • Teeth that are uneven or that need to be longer

Since porcelain veneers are applied over the front part of your teeth, they can easily mask these common imperfections and leave you with a smile that is brighter and straighter.

Some things to consider before choosing to get dental veneers in Roswell:

They are Forever

While these restorations don’t require the same kind of tooth preparation that getting a dental crown does it’s important to note that your Roswell cosmetic dentist will still need to remove a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Even though this is painless and often can be performed without a local anesthetic, once enamel has been removed this process is irreversible.

Keep Habits in Check

Your common habits can affect the health of your veneers. This means using your teeth as tool for opening items, teeth grinding or nail biting all have the potential for damaging your veneers. If you want to prevent your veneers from breaking or falling off then you’ll want to work on ditching these bad habits.

Limit Certain Foods/Drinks

While porcelain is stain-resistant, the cement used to bond the veneers is not. Over many years, this bonding resin can slightly darken the veneers. Certain foods and drinks like tea, wine, coffee, tomato sauce, etc. could cause stains over time. These stains are superficial and can be removed at your dental cleanings.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Even though your veneers aren’t natural tooth structures it’s still imperative that you keep your mouth healthy. This means brushing twice a day, flossing daily and seeing us every six months for routine cleanings to prevent decay or other issues from affecting your smile and your beautiful restorations.

The Martin Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics is happy to provide quality dental care to patients all over Roswell, GA. To find out if dental veneers could revive your smile’s appearance then it’s time you scheduled a consultation with us today!

Learn about how your cosmetic dentist in Roswell could give you your dream smile with dental veneers.

A smile is one of the first features that other people notice. So, what does your smile say about you? While you want a healthy beautiful smile, not everyone is lucky enough to have one naturally. Maybe you are dealing with severe discolorations, or unsightly chips or cracks. While these minor imperfections can keep you from the smile you deserve. Dr. Wyman Martin, your cosmetic dentist, can now recommend aVeneers dental treatment that will have you leaving our office with a brand new smile.
About Porcelain Veneers
Also known as dental veneers, these thin shells made from porcelain are fitted to the front of your teeth to hide minor problem areas and imperfections. Veneers are ideal for those looking to hide serious stains and discolorations, chips and cracks, crooked or misshapen teeth, and minor overlapping or gaps between teeth. Veneers are also a great option for someone looking to enhance their smile without invasive or complicated dental treatments.
Getting Porcelain Veneers
Before applying your veneers Dr. Martin will need to make a little extra room for them so your smile isn’t bulky. This requires us to remove a small amount of natural tooth enamel.  We do want our patients to be aware that once your natural tooth enamel is removed, this procedure is considered irreversible.

Once the tooth preparation is complete, we will match the shade of the veneers to your smile to choose a set that’s right for you. Dr. Martin will have you look over and approve the veneers prior to permanently applying them. Then we will place a specialized cement between the veneers and your natural teeth and shine a light beam over the veneers to harden the cement and adhere the veneers to create a new smile.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
This is a minimally invasive way to improve the overall appearance of your smile. With only minimal tooth prep and no anesthesia you can get an improved set of teeth. Furthermore, since these veneers are made from porcelain, you won’t have to worry about them developing cavities. Veneers are also stain-resistant; however, you may want to keep your smile bright by avoiding certain stain-producing foods and beverages. Veneers also do not require special care, so your brushing and flossing routine won’t have to change. Just treat your veneers the same way you would your natural teeth and you’ll continue to maintain a more beautiful smile.
