One of the most common services we provide is placing high-quality veneers. In this post, our Alpharetta cosmetic dentists answer some of the most common questions about veneers.
Am I a good candidate for veneers?
While most people will be able to benefit from one of the types of veneers we offer, not everyone is a good candidate for veneers.
- If you have advanced periodontal disease or an unstable bite, veneers will not address your problems.
- For those people with teeth that are “flared out,” the veneers could add too much bulk to the tooth, causing it to look even more flared.
- On the other hand, patients with teeth that incline slightly toward the tongue are the best candidates for veneers, since they won’t look as bulky when the veneers are placed.
Why do my teeth need to be reduced before placing veneers?
Veneers truly are paper thin – sometimes as thin as 0.1mm. However, adding even such a small amount of width to the tooth can sometimes make it look bulky. In such cases, we might recommend to our Alpharetta patients that the tooth be reduced or contoured prior to the placement of the veneer. Our trained cosmetic dentists take a very conservative approach, and will only recommend tooth preparation when it is in your best interests, and the best interests of your smile.
But I don’t want you to grind down my teeth!
Don’t worry. We know that fear of the dentist is one of the most common fears today. That’s why we’ve designed our Alpharetta office with our patient’s comfort in mind, and we offer multiple sedation dentistry options to completely erase your anxiety and fear.
How do you make me comfortable during my visit?
Just like our name says, visiting our Alpharetta office truly is like a day at the spa! From the moment you enter our doors, you are welcomed by the sound of soothing waterfalls. And during your treatment, you will relax in our Tempurpedic® chairs, while blocking out all noise with our Bose® noise-cancelling headphones.
Wow! That actually sounds nice!
