Teeth that are accidentally lost or need to be removed can be replaced with dentures. However, just because dental prosthetics are intended as a permanent replacement does not mean that they last forever. The lifespan of a pair of dentures is usually about five to 10 years. Good care can help you to extend their…
Can Veneers Fix Crooked Teeth?
Yes, veneers in Alpharetta can fix your crooked teeth. We can use veneers to make your teeth appear straight without actually changing the position of them. Here is what you need to know about veneers, how they are made, and why to are so popular.
Why Choose Veneers in Alpharetta?
If you are wondering about getting your teeth repaired, you may be considering using veneers in Alpharetta as a treatment option. The truth is, this is probably the best option you can have for correcting age-old problems. If you have damaged a tooth to the point where it is chipped, cracked, or broken, you definitely want to take a long, hard look at the options available to you, including costs and timelines, and compare them to getting veneers in Alpharetta. Veneers are used for any number of repairs because they are among the most versatile of all dental treatments used for many different functions. They are also among the most cost-effective and easy to place of the dental treatments. Dental veneers, which is what you get when you chose veneers in Alpharetta as your treatment option, are made of porcelain.
These ultra-thin strips of porcelain are placed over your teeth to replace enamel that has become damaged or discolored. To do this, we will need to remove a fractional portion of the enamel that already exists. Typically, this is the damaged enamel. Once this is done, we can place the dental veneer directly on the tooth and cement it in place, making a permanent fix to the challenges you are facing. When you consider how much enamel needs to be shaved away for a dental veneer, it is a minuscule amount compared to the amount that would be removed for other treatments, like a dental crown. For a dental implant, the entire tooth would be removed. However, it is important to remember that once you remove this enamel, there is no going back, as dental veneers are a permanent solution. We believe that the permanence of the solution is another reason why choosing veneers in Alpharetta is a great idea.
We use porcelain to manufacture and fabricate the dental veneers. This is because porcelain is one of those rare materials to make it out of the engineering discipline and have a huge impact on medicine, particularly in the placement of dental devices. Porcelain is used primarily because it is extremely biocompatible, meaning there is zero risk of the body rejecting your veneers. In addition to this, there are a few other features that make porcelain so good for creating your veneers in Alpharetta.
Porcelain is not soluble: This means that it will not dissolve in water and hence cannot dissolve in the wet environment of your mouth. If we were to use a substance that could be worn down over time with water, the saliva in your mouth would eventually dissolve your veneers. This is not a problem with porcelain.
Porcelain is aesthetically very good for use with corrective dental devices. Because it can be molded to fit the tooth, mimicking the perfect size and shape, and because porcelain can be colored and shaded to match the rest of your teeth, we can use it for front-facing tooth corrections just as easily as in the back. This makes it a very viable solution.
