Porcelain veneers have been around for years. Veneers are now more reliable than they have ever been in the past. Through years of studies and testing, dentists are now confident in choosing when to use Porcelain veneers.
Today, many people are unfortunately not happy with their smiles. Everybody deserves to be happy and comfortable with their smile! If you are someone who isn’t pleased with their smile, porcelain veneers might be the best option for you.
If you have healthy teeth, but just aren’t happy with the way they look, the answer used to be a cosmetic crown. Now, you have the option of porcelain veneers! Porcelain veneers work are quite simple. Your dentist will get rid of a small layer of tooth structure. This small layer is then replaced by a porcelain veneer on the front siding of the selected teeth. As simple as a procedure as this may sound, porcelain veneers don’t work in all situations. It is vital to sit down and talk options with your dentist to find out what procedure they recommend for you.
What can Porcelain Veneers do for me?
- Aggravated with stained teeth that no whitening treatment seems to solve
- If you have cracks showing in your front teeth
- If you have chips in your teeth
- If you have minor gaps in your teeth and aren’t sure about braces
Curious about what Porcelain Veneers can’t help accomplish?
- Fix major gaps and crooked teeth

While veneers may not be the answer for everybody, they’ve helped many patients over the years. If you are having problems with your teeth or you aren’t comfortable with them, consult with your dentist. While veneers might be a sound option, there might be more going on than what meets the eye. At the end of the day, what’s most important is you having healthy teeth and being comfortable with your own smile. That is what Dr. Bruce Carter is here to help you with at Gwinnett Smiles!
