If you wish for a brighter, more aesthetic smile, our dentist may suggest veneers. These tooth-colored restorations are made to cover the fronts of teeth with minor cosmetic flaws, like stains or chips.

If you choose veneers for your smile, Dr. Neelima Chiru will first clean the teeth receiving veneers and select the correct shade for your restorations. Local anesthesia is usually not needed for veneer placement. However, it can be used if desired. The fronts of the teeth receiving veneers will be shaped to allow room for the veneers in your smile. Impressions are taken of the teeth receiving treatment so that your veneers can be made specifically for your smile.

When the veneers are ready, your teeth will be cleaned thoroughly, and the veneers will be etched to allow for an ideal bonding process. The veneers are then cemented in place and allowed to cure. The fit and color of your new veneers will be checked. Any excess material will be removed by our dentist and your veneers will be polished.

Depending on how well they are cared for, veneers can last from about 10 to 20 years before they need to be replaced by our dentist. To care for your veneers, practice proper dental hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss once daily and visit Complete Dental of Suwanee at least every six months for routine dental cleaning and exam appointments.
