Porcelain veneers can be a life-changing investment in cosmetic dentistry. They are an excellent solution for those who want to instantly and dramatically improve their smile. Veneers can correct the appearance of a host of aesthetic flaws, ranging from gaps and discoloration to chips and crooked teeth.

Your veneers will only take 2-3 short office visits. While veneers are considered a painless and minimally-invasive procedure, they require a very small portion of the front tooth surface be shaved off in order for the wafer-thin shells of porcelain to adhere or bond to your teeth.

What Happens at Home?

While you may be prepared for what will happen during your dental veneers procedure, here is a glance of what you can expect when you get home.

The Immediate

It is not uncommon for patients to experience some tooth sensitivity to hot and cold for the first few days after getting veneers. This is due to the fact that approximately 0.5mm of your tooth enamel was removed. Rest assured that this discomfort will dissipate soon.

In addition, while the porcelain shells are only as thick as a contact lens, it may take some getting used to. Your front teeth may feel different in texture against your tongue or when you talk. Overall, porcelain veneers are considered a very comfortable and adaptable cosmetic dentistry choice.

The Near Future

About a week after you get your porcelain veneers put on, you will be scheduled to come back to the dental office for a checkup. While you may feel confident in your veneers, this appointment is still very important. It allows us to check the gum tissues around your veneers and make sure there is no irritation or other complications.

The Long-term

Veneers can last from seven years to twenty years. If you have changes to your tooth structure underneath or changes in the surrounding gum tissues (recession, etc), then you may need to have your veneers checked. These are situations that may cause your veneers to become loose and need rebonding.

You should care for your veneers just like you would your natural teeth, which includes routine brushing and flossing, visiting us for regular checkups and not using your teeth as tools.  Remember that while the veneer itself is resistant to decay and staining, the tooth underneath your veneer is still absolutely susceptible to cavities and other problems.

Kim B.

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!

Linda S.

Dr. Roberts and her entire staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Roberts has a great "bedside manner" and clearly explains what she needs to and why, in a very calming manner. She is a perfectionist in her work, and I can honestly say I've never experienced pain during several crown procedures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Skyler S.

Every time I walk into Dr. Roberts' office, I feel at home. The establishment is clean and welcoming, and the staff is so friendly! I live in Atlanta, and I still make the trip up to Alpharetta just to go back to Crabapple Dental because I appreciate everything they do so much. They always have the most up to date technology and tools that makes my mouth feel more clean each time I go. Definitely recommend!
