At Dental Group South, Inc., in Stockbridge, GA, Dr. Vernon Greene offers porcelain veneers to conceal a wide range of cosmetic flaws.
Why should you enhance your smile with dental veneers at our Atlanta-area practice?
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
A porcelain veneer is a thin ceramic shell that fits over the front of a tooth. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed to accommodate the dental veneer and achieve a natural appearance. Usually just 1/2 mm of enamel is removed, which is roughly the thickness of your fingernail.
With a dental veneer in place, cosmetic flaws are totally concealed. The color-matched porcelain is so convincing that it blends in with your natural teeth and looks completely natural.
Let's explore the veneers placement process...
Transform Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Greene uses advanced dental ceramic to create veneers that mimic the qualities of natural teeth. He can carefully color-match the porcelain to the shade of your smile.
Veneers offer a beautiful solution for a variety of imperfections, including chips, gaps, cracks, and misalignment. Dr. Greene can also use veneers to address stained teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening.
We use medical-grade dental porcelain to craft each of our custom veneers. This material is remarkably strong and can last 10 years or more when cared for appropriately.

Do You Qualify for Porcelain Veneers?
Before traditional veneers are placed, a small amount of enamel must be removed to achieve a natural appearance, so patients with very worn or thin enamel might not be eligible. Those patients can ask about minimal and no-prep veneers, such as Lumineers®.
No Teeth Grinding
The clenching and grinding that characterizes bruxism can fracture porcelain. Patients can often protect their veneers with oral appliances. In other cases, your dentist might recommend resolving the issue before placing veneers.
Only Minor Misalignment
While veneers can conceal small gaps and minor misalignment, severely crooked teeth might require orthodontic treatment for the best results. Dr. Greene can assess which treatment option is right for your needs during your visit.
Prepared for a Permanent Change
Veneers require permanent modifications to your teeth. This means that any teeth treated with veneers will always require some sort of restoration in the future. Minimal-prep veneers can provide a reversible alternative for candidates that qualify.
Stains and other damage compromised the appearance of this patient's teeth.
Veneers provided a stunning rejuvenation by concealing these concerns.
The Cost of Porcelain Veneers
The cost of dental veneers can vary from patient to patient based on their needs and the complexity of their case. During your consultation with Dr. Greene, we can explain pricing details and your payment options. Keep in mind that we accept CareCredit® financing, which can allow you to pay in monthly installments.

Are Porcelain Veneers Painful?
No. Local anesthetic is used to maintain your comfort as we prep your tooth for a dental veneer. Patients report little or no discomfort during the treatment process.
Will People Be Able to Tell I Have Veneers?
Until recently, veneers could appear too perfect, unnatural, or bulky. However, thanks to advances in dentistry and state-of-the-art materials, today's veneers are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Each patient's results will vary depending on their individual goals, but you can generally expect a brighter, more balanced, and more youthful-looking smile when you work with our practice in Stockbridge, GA.

Let's walk you through the veneer procedure:
In just two visits to the dentist over the course of two weeks, you can give your smile a dramatic makeover.
Can Dental Veneers Fall Off?
Even though porcelain veneers are carefully cemented in place, they can become dislodged. This is often the result of trauma to the mouth, teeth grinding, or severe wear and tear. If one of your dental veneers has come loose, Dr. Greene can help secure it back in place like new.
How To Protect Your New Smile
Bad Habits to Avoid
Based on the aftercare tips above, you'll notice that you can care for veneers just like your natural teeth. That's why you will need to avoid the following bad habits:
- Chewing on ice
- Opening packages with your teeth
- Biting your fingernails
- Chewing on pens or other objects
By practicing good hygiene and avoiding these bad habits, you can extend the life of your porcelain veneers and avoid damage to your natural teeth.
If you play contact sports or grind your teeth, our dentist can provide a customized mouthguard to protect your new smile.
- A night guard for teeth grinding prevents direct contact between your upper and lower teeth, protecting dental veneers and natural tooth structure from harm.
- An athletic mouth guard protects your teeth, gums, and dental work from physical trauma while playing football, basketball, hockey, soccer, and other sports.
