What is the difference between Pearls and Veneers?
At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we can offer some of our patients beautiful smiles with minimal to no loss of natural tooth structure. This can be done using Pearls, our specially crafted type of ultra thin veneers. Traditionally, veneers require the removal of varying amounts of tooth enamel prior to enhancing the smile.Pearls offer an innovative treatment for designing beautiful smiles using techniques to preserve most, or for some, all of their tooth structure.
Who is a candidate for Pearls?
Pearls (or any no reduction veneers) are a viable option for certain candidates based on a number of circumstances including tooth shape, alignment, shade of teeth and many other variables. Often good candidates are those who already have fairly straight, white teeth and are mainly trying to close small spaces or lengthen teeth. Since placing the Pearls may not require reducing the tooth structure, there may not be any need for the dental drill. This fact, combined with our painless Wand anesthetics makes Pearls a great option for patients with dental anxiety or discomfort.
