Porcelain Veneers for Marietta Residents
If you have multiple cosmetic dental flaws, the thought of undergoing several treatments to improve your smile may seem a little too overwhelming. Wouldn’t it be better if you could just give your look a complete do-over all at once? High-quality veneers from Dr. James Merriman accomplish just that. You can think of veneers as a new surface for your teeth, hiding years of cracks, stains, and gaps under a brand-new, gorgeous porcelain sheath.
What are veneers?
Veneers are very thin pieces of dental porcelain designed to fit over certain teeth or an entire smile. They’re customized to look just like natural teeth, only straighter and brighter so patients enjoy a perfect smile. Dr. Merriman even designs veneers to alter the size or shape of certain teeth, depending on personal preferences. Our Marietta, GA dental team learns all of this information during the initial consultation.
Once we’ve determined veneers are the best treatment option, the procedure requires two to three appointments. During the first one, Dr. Merriman removes a small amount of natural tooth enamel from the affected teeth and takes impressions to send to a trusted lab. In the meantime, he provides you with a temporary veneer that maintains your appearance and helps you get used to the look and feel of veneers. Once we’ve received the permanent veneer, you return to our office so they can be bonded in place completing your new and improved look.
