What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front of the teeth to improve and enhance their appearance. In most cases, veneers are irreversible because the front of the teeth are shaped to allow room for the veneers.

When are veneers used?
Veneers are used to cover cosmetic imperfections in the teeth. For instance, chips, cracks, stains, slightly crooked teeth and gapped teeth can be covered with veneers. Veneers are a less-invasive way to conceal these issues than dental crowns or braces.

Am I a good candidate?
If you are interested in having veneers placed, Dr. Chiru will examine your teeth and let you know if veneers are the best way to reach your smile goals and dreams.

How do I care for my veneers?
You may be surprised to learn that veneers do not require any special care. Simply brush and floss as you would your natural teeth and visit Complete Dental of Atlanta at least twice a year for routine dental appointments. You may want to limit staining foods and beverages, like coffee. Also, keep in mind that your veneers will need to be replaced by our dentist at some point.
