What are porcelain veneers?
Do small chips along the edges of your teeth make you feel self-conscious? Do gapped teeth and uneven spaces make you want to conceal your smile? Porcelain dental veneers in Alpharetta, GA are the perfect solution for these and many other aesthetic smile flaws.
Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain that we bond to the front surfaces of the teeth we’re treating. Since they cover your tooth, dental veneers conceal numerous cosmetic imperfections.
Dental porcelain is not at all fragile as you may think. It is a strong and durable material and can last as long as ten years with proper oral care.

What’s the process for getting dental veneers?
With porcelain veneers, Dr. Kai can work with you to create a simple improvement or a dramatic smile transformation. The first step is to talk to us about your goals and how you would like us to help you. If veneers are right for you, we’ll explain how they can help you achieve the smile of your dream.
The process for getting veneers involves several steps that typically take place over two visits to our Alpharetta dental office:
Alter your dental enamel so your new veneers look natural
- Take dental impressions we use to customize your veneers
- Create temporary veneers to wear while you wait for your final veneers
- Adjust, place and polish your final veneers
Your temporary veneers are a mock-up of your final veneers, so while you wear them, take note of any minor changes you would like us to make. You're making an investment when you get veneers, and we want you to be delighted with the results.
I have gapped teeth. How can veneers help?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for solving the problem of gaps and uneven spaces between your teeth. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that we place on your existing teeth. We custom-craft them to mask cosmetic problems that would otherwise require more involved treatment.
One of the great qualities of veneers is their natural appearance. The porcelain that we use is very close in appearance to natural tooth enamel and offers a smile improvement that blends with your teeth and never looks fake or flat.
If you are considering porcelain veneers in Alpharetta, GA, please call our office to arrange a consultation. Dr. Kai Liang will help you decide whether veneers or another type of treatment is the best solution for you.
How do I know if porcelain veneers are right for me?
If you’re looking for an easy and efficient way to improve the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers are an excellent option. Veneers are versatile, and we use them to correct multiple problems on just one tooth or multiple teeth.
Veneers may be the solution for you if your teeth are:
- Stained or discolored
- Too large or too small
- Worn down
- Chipped or broken
- Slightly misaligned
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!

Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers can solve many of these concerns, but there are a few things you need to know before you decide if they’re right for you.
Since veneers add some bulk to a tooth, we need to remove a very thin layer of your existing dental enamel. This step allows room for the veneers to sit naturally along your gumline and to create a secure bond with tooth enamel. Once dental enamel is gone, it does not grow back, so getting dental veneers is a lifetime commitment.
Porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, but we will need to replace them periodically. Their longevity depends mostly upon how well you take care of your oral health. Being diligent about your oral hygiene routine will extend the life of your veneers and help them last a very long time.
As part of your regular checkups, Dr. Kai will examine the condition of your veneers to make sure they are intact and in good condition.
How should I care for my new dental veneers?
With proper care, dental veneers placed at our Alpharetta, GA dental office can last as long as ten years. Of course, the more diligent you are with your oral hygiene, the longer they will last. We bond the veneer to your natural tooth, so it’s necessary to keep up with your oral health care.
Other factors also affect the longevity of your veneer. Excessive teeth grinding can place abnormal stress on the veneer and cause it to crack or chip. You should also use common sense when eating hard food like nuts that can damage the veneer. Brush and floss gently, and do not use abrasive toothpaste.
Part of keeping your veneers in good shape is making regular appointments for dental exams. These periodic visits allow Dr. Kai to make sure your natural teeth are healthy and also check for any signs of problems with the veneers.
Veneers are a very effective cosmetic dental solution, but you need to treat them gently. If you would like more information about caring for your porcelain veneers, please contact our Alpharetta, GA dental office.
