Porcelain veneers, sometimes referred to as dental veneers, give our Atlanta cosmetic dentist the ability to correct imperfections such as chips, gaps, stains, and teeth misalignment. No matter how disappointed you are with the teeth nature gave you or maybe your teeth have become aged and worn— modern smile enhancements such as porcelain veneers can give you the results you’ve always wanted. Dr. David Zelby utilizes porcelain veneers to reshape, lengthen or shorten teeth and create brilliant symmetrical smile makeovers.
The porcelain veneer procedure is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments and it is virtually painless. Dental veneers are small, razor-thin, custom-made covers for your teeth. They are created carefully in a shade chosen to match your teeth, or in a new, brighter shade if your teeth had became discolored over the years. Dr. David Zelby can custom-fit these slim, durable dental veneers to the desired teeth, with results that both look amazing and feel natural. In the past you may have seen porcelain veneers that were “too,” white and opaque. As a prosthodontist, whose dental speciality revolves around natural tooth restorations, Dr. Zelby and his ceramicist carefully craft your porcelain veneer to appear natural, with shade gradations from top to bottom, just like your natural teeth. No more “chiclet,” looking Hollywood Smile teeth. Our dental veneers are so natural appearing, people will think you were born with “perfect teeth.” Plus, porcelain dental veneers can last for decades and significantly improve the appearance of your smile.
If you are looking to correct major or even minor dental imperfections, porcelain veneers can be a great option. Certain things we eat and drink, as well as decay, periodontal disease, dental injuries and the natural aging process can all have a negative impact on our teeth. Porcelain dental veneers can correct both aesthetic and functional conditions such as:
•Stains and discolorations
•Gaps between the teeth
Porcelain Dental veneers play a major role in the custom smile makeover process and they offer a great advantage compared to the options available in the past. Porcelain veneers allow your Atlanta Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. David Zelby to take a very conservative approach in reshaping your smile. In years past, dentists did what was referred to as, “Hollywood crowns”, these Hollywood crowns looked great but the majority of the natural tooth structure had to be removed. With advancements in dentistry and dental materials, a trained and experienced cosmetic dentist and prosthodontist such as Dr. David Zelby, can keep almost all the natural tooth structure while still creating a picture perfect, natural looking smile.
Every porcelain veneer procedure is a custom process starting with a personal consultation with Dr. Zelby. During this consultation Dr. Zelby will take time to get to know you, your goals, and answer all of your questions about the procedure. He then will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth to decide if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers and if they are the best option for you. If porcelain veneers are the best option, you will be just a few appointments away from a perfect smile.
Porcelain dental veneers are made of a very strong ceramic material designed to last for years, even decades. The thin shells are custom-made to fit over the front part of your tooth and hide dental imperfections. After an initial impression of your teeth has been made, Dr. Zelby will have your new veneer custom-designed and created to fit over the surface of your natural tooth. Once it has been made, he will affix the veneer to the affected tooth. With most patients, Dr. Zelby does not need to remove a significant portion of the original tooth before fitting the veneer. After affixing the veneer with a strong cement it be color-tinted to match the surrounding teeth for a look and feel that is both natural and beautiful.
Results can often last decades and most people won’t even know you have a porcelain dental veneer unless you tell them!
