Are you uncomfortable when you smile? Are you afraid to show your teeth? At Lilburn Family Dentistry located in Lilburn, GA, our specially trained cosmetic dentist can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.
These veneers are thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain. They can restore crooked, stained or chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers take approximately two visits to complete. In our Lilburn office, the doctor begins by making a mold of the tooth and then selects the right shade to match the rest of your smile. Once the dentist is satisfied with the tone, the office will order your veneers from our dental lab. The lab technician will customize them according to the doctor's instructions. When they arrive at the office, the doctor will scrape and reshape the tooth receiving the veneers to ensure it fits properly. A special liquid is used on the tooth to create a strong bond. Cement is placed between the tooth and the veneer, and a special curing light sets and hardens the bond.
Lumineers, similar to veneers, are made of porcelain. They provide our patients with an easier way to achieve beautiful, natural-looking teeth. At Lilburn Family Dentistry, our doctor can place these "smile shapers" on the surface of your teeth without grating or shaving them. Lumineers alter the teeth into a more natural and whiter smile. The entire procedure takes only two dental appointments. On your first scheduled appointment, the doctor makes a mold of your teeth. Then, matching your natural teeth, a shade is selected to make the Lumineers. On your subsequent visit, the Lumineers are checked for fit and color. Once the dentist agrees the fit and shade are perfect, the Lumineer is attached, creating a natural and beautiful smile.
Composite veneers are another option to porcelain veneers. The difference is that composite veneers are not made in a laboratory, but in our office. At Lilburn Family Dentistry, our cosmetic dentist will make the veneers using tooth-colored material and then bond them directly onto your teeth. Composite veneers can make teeth whiter without the use of peroxide or bleach. They can widen your smile; correct chipped teeth and close gaps between teeth. Composite veneers last about 7-10 years, while porcelain veneers have been known to last 15 or more years.
