James A. Merriman has been your cosmetic and restorative dentist to transform smiles to change lives for more than 35 years. As a cosmetic dentist in Marietta, Dr. Merriman often recommends porcelain veneers to rebuild smiles using a simple and noninvasive procedure. Porcelain veneers are placed over the front side of the teeth to cover cosmetic flaws to enhance the appearance of your smile. Veneers are the simple solution to give you the radiant smile you’ve always wanted for a rejuvenated appearance.
Transform Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin false fronts that are made from porcelain. Porcelain is the preferred material because it is thinner, allowing less of the tooth’s structure to be removed in order to bond the veneer to the tooth. In addition, porcelain reflects light like enamel, allowing the veneers to look like a natural smile.
Porcelain veneers are fairly versatile and can be used to improve the appearance of the teeth by offering an alternative to other procedures. By placing the veneers over the teeth, chips, cracks, and severe discoloration are quickly hidden. Plus, veneers can often make the teeth appear straighter by filling in small gaps—providing a fast and effective alternative to orthodontics. Overall, veneers will give your teeth a shapelier appearance as they may your teeth more proportionate for a truly flawless smile.
To benefit from veneers, you’ll need to undergo a consultation from your dentist in Marietta to determine if you’re a candidate. If you’re a candidate, Dr. Merriman will create a customized treatment plan to transform your smile.
The first step of the procedure will involve preparing your teeth for the veneers. We will clean the teeth and etch the surface of the tooth. The etching is needed to allow a secure bond between the tooth and the veneer. After your teeth are prepared, molds, impressions, and images are taken so we can create your custom veneers. Your veneers will be made to match your exact specifications, such as color, size, and shape.
While you wait for your final veneers to be made, we will attach temporary veneers. Once your permanent veneers are ready, we will remove the temporary veneers, make the final adjustments to your porcelain veneers, and then we will securely bond the veneers to your teeth.
Dentist in Marietta for a New Smile
After your veneers are in place, you’ll have a dazzling new smile that will last as long as 10 years with the right care. While the veneers are durable, they can become damaged by abrasive products and eating hard foods. You’ll need to use nonabrasive oral hygiene products and visit your dentist regularly so we can monitor the veneers for damage. Should damage occur, Dr. Merriman will replace the damaged veneer to restore your stunning smile.
