Dentist Dunwoody: A Beautiful Smile Is Precious And Priceless

Cosmetic dentist near me in Dunwoody and ChambleeDid you realize the shape, shade, length and spacing of your teeth could significantly affect your smile? And our smiles can greatly affect our self-esteem and confidence. Common conditions that impact negatively on your smile include broken, cracked or worn teeth, discolored teeth, missing teeth, crooked teeth, decayed teeth, gaps between your teeth and/or “gummy smiles.” The good news is with modern technology and improved materials, these situations can be dramatically changed to create natural looking and long-lasting beautiful smiles.

Each patient and each specific circumstance must be evaluated on its own merits. Factors such as occlusion [bite], oral habits, available space, health of the gum tissue, severity of the problem and patient expectation must be taken into consideration while planning your cosmetic makeover.

Depending on the situation, there are a variety of choices that all result in excellent esthetic outcomes. For whiter natural teeth, in-office or at-home bleaching [whitening] techniques are available. Repairing teeth or closing spaces may be accomplished with tooth-colored composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.

These procedures vary in time and cost and have differences in longevity and appearance. If you’re not satisfied with your smile or want to learn if you’re a good candidate for any of these remarkable techniques, call our office for a complimentary cosmetic consultation.

Brookhaven Dentist Near Me: How Much do Veneers Cost?

Brookhaven Dentist VeneersSo how much do veneers really cost? The cost for porcelain veneers varies widely. They can run anywhere from $825 to $1,500 per tooth. There are several reasons for the difference in cost and  yes, veneers can be quite expensive but they do offer several benefits.  One of the most important benefits is a distinctly improved smile, which lead to an improved life.

First, lets discuss what porcelain veneers are.  Porcelain veneers are extremely thin custom made covers for the front surface of the teeth. They can be made from porcelain or direct composite resin.  Although porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite, they last much longer and are more stain resistant.  Traditional composite veneers last on average between five and seven years while porcelain veneers last between 10 and 18 years.

Veneers are used for a variety of purposes. They can be used to fix chipped or broken teeth or teeth that have become discolored by root canal work, excessive fluoride, or drugs such as tetracycline. Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct misaligned teeth or teeth with gaps between them.  But the most common reason for veneers is cosmetic. They can be used to change the length, shape, size and color of teeth. In effect, they can be used to create a designer smile.

Because veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, they generally are not covered by insurance. In some cases, depending on the insurance company and the policy coverage they may be eligible for a dental discount. Again, the amount and availability of this discount varies widely.  In special circumstances some insurance may pay up to 50% depending on the type of policy. To offset the high cost of veneers, most dentists offer special payment plans.

Getting dental veneers is a multi-step process. The initial visit usually consists of a consultation and depending on the dentist and the amount of work to be done, x-rays and/or impressions of the teeth may be done at this time.  On the first working visit the dentist will remove approximately 1/2 millimeter of enamel from the tooth or teeth to be veneered and make a model sent to the lab that will make the veneer.  Normally it takes one to two weeks to construct the veneers.  During the next visit, the veneer is temporarily placed to check for proper color and fit.

The tooth that is to receive the veneer is then cleaned, polished, and etched. The etching roughens the surface of the tooth for better adhesion of the veneer. The veneer is cemented into place and a follow up visit to check placement and adhesion may be required.

How long do porcelain veneers last?  They can last between five and ten years or more, depending on how you take care of them. But at some point they probably will need to be replaced. Just like real teeth, porcelain veneers need to be thoroughly brushed and flossed daily.

Your smile is the first things that people notice about you which is the primary reason people want porcelain veneers.  If we can be of service or you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Dentist Dunwoody: What Discolors Teeth?

Porcelain VeneersTooth discoloration and staining can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness.  There are many causes of tooth discoloration, some within your control and some not.  Here is a short list of some causes and possible cures:

1.   Drinks: Coffee and tea tend to stain teeth, especially when sipped over a prolonged period of time.  Periodic professional cleanings and in-office tooth whitening will reverse these effects.

2.  Smoking/Tobacco:  Smoking and chewing tobacco have a negative effect on tooth color, gingival health, and breath.  The best treatment is to quit smoking.  Again, periodic in-office cleanings and professional tooth whitening can minimize the discoloring effects of smoking.

3.  Dental Restorations: Metal restorations tend to breakdown at the edges (margins) and may reduce the transparency of tooth enamel.  For a nice aesthetic appearance, replacing metal fillings with tooth colored composites or porcelains reverses these effects.  Even tooth-colored restorations are subject to stains with time and may need replacement.

4.   Age: As we get older there is a cumulative effect of tooth staining.  The outer tooth enamel wears down with time, causing teeth to turn yellow.  Porcelain veneers or dental bonding can replace the worn layer and restore that once lost youthful smile.  In some cases, tooth whitening may be an appropriate solution.

5.  Chemicals and Medications:  During the tooth development of a child, certain antibiotics such as tetracycline or excessive ingestion of fluoride can cause permanent tooth staining.  Though these stains cannot be cleaned or whitened, porcelain veneers or composite bonding can give the stained teeth a new look.

In addition to the causes listed above, trauma and genetics play a role in changing tooth color. Keep your teeth whiter and brighter by regular dental cleanings (which usually include stain removal and polishing) and ask us about our cosmetic options to get that right smile.
