Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are an excellent cosmetic treatment that has transformed the smiles of millions of people. If you’re looking for an easy and efficient way to improve the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers are an excellent option.

One of the advantages of porcelain veneers is that they are quite versatile and can be used to correct multiple problems on just one tooth or multiple teeth.

Veneers may be the solution for you if your teeth are:

  • Discolored
  • Too large or too small
  • Worn down
  • Chipped or broken
  • Too widely spaced

Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-shaped porcelain that are customized to fit over the front surface of your own teeth. In many cases, veneers can give you a whiter and straighter smile without the need for braces, tooth-whitening trays, or any other dental appliance. Our patients especially love the fact that porcelain veneers can transform their smile in only two office visits!

Because of the continuing advances in veneer technology, veneers are quickly becoming Liang’s first choice for improving his patients’ smiles and preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

Please contact our office if you would like more information about porcelain veneers in Alpharetta, GA. We will be happy to arrange a consultation to show you how veneers can make you proud to smile again!

The entire process of getting porcelain veneers in Alpharetta takes about two to three weeks. However, there are a couple of factors that can affect the time needed to complete your makeover.

  • Your current oral health – Thinking about the transformation you’re about to achieve with veneers is exciting, but we need to address underlying oral health problems first. You wouldn’t paint a house with crumbling walls, and we don’t place veneers on unhealthy teeth or gums. If we don’t address these problems, and a cavity spreads or you need gum disease treatment, we would have to remove and then replace your veneers.
  • Your personal preference – Porcelain veneers come with a high price tag, and many patients who want the benefits can’t fit the cost into their budget. Composite or direct veneers are an affordable and non-invasive alternative that works well for many of our patients. The cost is lower than veneers created at a dental lab because Dr. Kai performs the entire procedure here at our office.

If you’re considering a smile makeover with veneers at our Alpharetta dental office, call us to arrange a consultation with Dr. Kai. He will evaluate you to check the condition of your oral health and explain the pros and cons of direct and lab veneers.

Teeth that are damaged or have cosmetic issues can easily detract from the harmonious appearance of your smile. But these inconsistencies can also make oral hygiene difficult which can potentially lead to periodontal disease.

Fortunately, porcelain veneers placed by Dr. Kai Liang at Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry are a beautiful, practical solution for eliminating gaps and spaces between your teeth. Porcelain veneers are increasingly used by dentists because they address a number of cosmetic dental imperfections such as teeth that are unevenly spaced.

Veneers work so well because they conceal your natural teeth with a very thin shell of porcelain. We can not only match the porcelain to the color of your natural teeth, but we can customize their shape to cover your tooth and close gaps and uneven spacing and alter the shape or size of the tooth. 

The process for placing porcelain veneers at our Milton, GA dental office is easy, and usually requires only two or three appointments. We can help you resolve your cosmetic dental concerns, and provide you with a perfectly symmetrical, beautiful smile in just a few weeks.

While porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for these types of problems, they may not be the most appropriate choice for your needs. Please contact our office to arrange a consultation, and we will help you decide which treatment will work best.

Cosmetic dentistry has a come a long way in recent years; thanks to advances in dental materials and the way we use them, treatments like porcelain veneers are no longer a luxury reserved only for celebrities.

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that are placed on the surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. Since a veneer completely covers your tooth, we have many options for improving your smile.

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Conceal chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Make crooked smiles look straighter
  • Bring disproportionate smiles into balance
  • Lighten the appearance of dark or stained teeth
  • Resurface damaged dental enamel

If you are wondering whether veneers are the best choice for you, we should start with a smile consultation. This is an essential part of the process and helps us understand what your goals are and how you would like us to help you achieve them. In some cases, we may find that a different treatment would be more appropriate.

Are you ready to take the next step to a confident, beautiful smile? Please call our Johns Creek, GA dental office, and we will be happy to arrange a convenient time for you to meet with Dr. Kai Liang.
