5 Things you didn’t know about veneers

Veneers can eliminate gaps, correct chips, make teeth look straighter, and create a vibrant smile that turns heads. Best of all, they can transform your smile quickly, so you don’t need to wait months or years for results. Most people have some familiarity with this versatile aspect of cosmetic dentistry, but we’ve come up with five things you’ve probably never heard.

Atlanta veneers

1) They Can Be Very Thin

Dr. King is one of 47 elite dentists in the world who has attained the status of “fellow” with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). She utilizes Pearls, her own perfected version of ultra-thin veneers, to enhance smiles. Because of this, very little tooth structure is removed, and the tooth remains structurally sound.

2) They Can Be Strong

Most people have heard a horror story about someone who repeatedly lost or broke their restorations. Sadly, this is usually the result of seeing an unskilled dentist for complex cosmetic restorations. While you may want to take care to protect your new smile, restorations performed by Dr. King are incredibly durable.

3) They Can Last More than a Decade

Over time, the shape of your face may change and your gum line can start to recede, but it can take a decade or more for this to happen. When you have a highly trained dentist who takes great pride in their work, you can rest assured that the smile you’ve invested in will be long-lasting.

4) They’re Stain-Resistant

Most of the time, veneers are made of porcelain, which doesn’t absorb stains from coffee, nicotine, wine, or other vices. This is in stark contrast from both natural teeth, which may need whitening treatments to retain their luster, and from resins, which can discolor over time.

5) They Can Reduce Tooth Sensitivity

Though thin, these wonderful restorations also work to shield your teeth from the elements. If you felt zings from hot or cold foods before, they’ll have better insulation after treatment.
