Considering dental veneers? Find out what kinds are available to you in Fayetteville, GA.

Dental veneers have become a popular cosmetic treatment because these thin, tooth-colored shells can completely revamp and reshape your smile’s appearance. If you are dealing with chips, cracks, discolorations or slightly crooked teeth, dental veneers may be the ideal treatment for you. From the office of our Fayetteville, GA, dentists Drs. Ed and Jonathan Robinson, and Dr. Lindsey Richardson Alvarez, here are the types of dental veneers from which to choose and how they could help you,

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain is one of the most common materials from which to create veneers because they are incredibly durable, stain-resistant, long-lasting and can mimic the appearance of real tooth enamel. They blend in flawlessly with your smile, no matter if you are getting just a couple of dental veneers or a full set.

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin has become another popular material from which to craft veneers. Composite resin is also used to fill cavities. It is strong, resilient and can be matched to the color of your tooth. Composite resin is also a more cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your smile; however, you’ll want to talk with your Fayetteville, GA, cosmetic dentists about the pros and cons of composite resin and porcelain veneers to find out which one is right for you.

Lumineers

With traditional veneers our dentist will need to shave off a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. While this tooth preparation is very minor and painless, it is permanent; therefore, if you are looking for a restoration that doesn’t require any tooth preparation then Lumineers may be a better option. These shells are even thinner than traditional veneers, which makes it possible to bond them to the front of your teeth without needing to remove enamel.

Are veneers right for me?

No matter what type you’re interested in, dental veneers could be the ideal solution for improving your smile if you are looking to fix,

  • Discolorations
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
  • An asymmetrical smile
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
