Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin layerings made of porcelain that are bonded over teeth to help improve the appearance of smile flaws. With a set of veneers, you can hide cosmetic concerns and show off a healthier-looking smile.

At Marietta Dental and Implant Center, Dr. Sommerville bonds veneers onto your natural teeth with a special dental adhesive. This procedure is a great option if your smile is affected by:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked teeth or a bad bite

Veneers are sturdy and durable enough to last, and you don’t have to alter your diet. You can keep eating your favorite foods without constantly worrying about damaging them.

 

 

What is the process of getting veneers like?

At Marietta Dental and Implant Center, Dr. Sommerville and his team use Lumineers®, a top-tier brand of veneers. To get the process started, he takes comprehensive impressions of your teeth that are used to make your new veneers. Then, in a simple procedure, he files down your teeth slightly. This reduces the size of certain teeth to give your veneers enough room to fit.

Unlike other practices that have to send impressions to an outside dental lab, your Lumineers veneers are custom-made in-house to look exactly like healthy, natural teeth. It typically takes 1-2 weeks for Marietta Dental and Implant Center to finish a new set of veneers.

Once your veneers are ready, you’ll return for a follow-up visit for a fitting to ensure comfort and proper function. At this visit, Dr. Sommerville uses a special dental adhesive to bond your veneers to your natural teeth.

 

 

What are the benefits of veneers?

First and foremost, a new set of veneers will provide an incredible boost in self-confidence. They can totally transform your appearance. Best of all, unlike many other cosmetic dentistry procedures, the process involves no oral surgery or any invasive dental work.

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, veneers also help restore your oral health. Chips, cracks, and gaps often impair functions such as chewing, speech, and digestion. Veneers can vastly improve these functions and, in the process, restore your overall quality of life.


How long do veneers last?

As long as you take good care of your veneers, they can last up to 15 years. In some cases, they can last even longer. However, the lifespan of your new veneers often depends on you. Make sure to treat your veneers just like you care for your natural teeth. Continue brushing and flossing regularly, and maintain your regularly scheduled checkups to monitor your veneers.
