For today’s dental patients, there are many general and cosmetic dentistry options for everything from a subtle change to a complete smile makeover! One of the most popular options are porcelain veneers.
Dr. Harry McCool, a cosmetic and general dentist located in Lilburn, GA, offers his dental patients both composite resin and porcelain veneers as a cosmetic option for those seeking a change to their smile or to treat a variety of dental problems:
- Close spaces between teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
Composite veneers are an economical option that can provide a cosmetic change and fix similar dental problems. They are not as durable and long lasting as porcelain veneers, but require less tooth degradation in order to be applied and can be matched closely to a patient’s natural teeth. Porcelain veneers will offer a long lasting result- up to 25y years!- that is will be perfectly color matched, but they can have a higher price tag!
While composite veneers are removable veneers that are attached directly to the tooth, porcelain veneers are permanent and can last for many years with proper oral hygiene, including regular preventive care visits to Dr. McCool in Lilburn for thorough dental cleanings and exams. Porcelain veneers are made from a translucent material and both appear and function just like a natural tooth. They are highly stain resistant, offering years of bright, white smiles!
For patients needing or considering veneers, Dr. McCool will perform a thorough exam and recommend the best treatment option to suit a patient’s oral health needs, their personal goals and their budget. Contact Dr. McCool to schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
