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.

How Veneers in Alpharetta Can Be Used To Improve Your Smile
Veneers in Alpharetta can improve the appearance and functionality of your teeth. Dental veneers are a tiny device that we use to repair a number of minor problems with your teeth. As a dentist, we are committed to ensuring that you have the best possible smile. To do this, we use a tiny device known as a porcelain veneer, or dental veneers. Dental veneers are known as porcelain veneers because they are made of the thinnest porcelain strips that are used to replace damaged or discolored enamel. The porcelain is made deliberately thin so that it is extremely malleable and also can take on some qualities similar to that of naturally occurring enamel. Veneer repaired teeth look exactly like a perfect version of your natural teeth. The veneers are also extremely durable, given that they are very hard. The only real challenge with veneers is that they require you to take care of them like you would your other teeth and not engage in behaviors that may damage them. However, as long as you follow good oral hygiene habits your veneers can last a very long time.
What can dental veneers be used to fix?
Of the many tools that we have, veneers in Alpharetta, are some of the most useful and the most versatile. In fact, dental veneers are one of those few technologies that have successfully bridged the gap between what is considered to be purely cosmetic dentistry and what is also functional dentistry. On the cosmetic side, dental veneers can fix a multitude of problems from teeth whitening to evening out some of the gaps caused by malocclusion. Teeth whitening is one of the best examples. Sometimes the traditional methods of using peroxide based formulas do not get the job done when it comes to teeth whitening. In cases like this the patient has the choice to use dental veneers. Veneers would be a permanent solution since the porcelain in them cannot be stained. From a functionality perspective, one of the most common uses for dental veneers is to repair teeth that have undergone some kind of trauma and are chipped, cracked, or have some minor breaks. If left unrepaired this damage can spread or worse lead to an oral infection. We use dental veneers to fix these kinds of damage because veneers are not as invasive nor do they require the removal of very much natural enamel.
Can anyone get veneers in Alpharetta?
The simple answer to this question is yes. While there are some underlying, and very rare, conditions that may preclude you from getting dental veneers the chances of this happening are slim to none. We do not want to take any chances, however, so we will bring you in for a complete checkup before we decide that you are a great candidate for veneers. Occasionally we do find minor problems that we can fix before proceeding to the procedure. An example of this would be a cavity.
