Are you unhappy with your smile?

Do you want to fix the unsightly gaps between your teeth once and for all?

Do you have significantly stained teeth that do not become whiter no matter what you try?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might benefit from porcelain veneers or DURAthin® veneers from Lifetime Smiles in Johns Creek, GA. Dr. Forester is trained, certified, and experienced to transform smiles using both techniques.

What are Porcelain Veneers? What are the Benefits?

A porcelain veneer is a very thin covering made of porcelain that gets attached to the front part of the tooth. It is actually as thin as a contact lens! The porcelain veneer gets bonded to the front to transform your smile. The results are very attractive and natural looking.

Many patients benefit from porcelain veneers. Here are a few benefits:

Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. They will not stain when you consume dark-colored beverages (i.e. dark colas, dark tea, coffee, red wine, etc) or use tobacco products.
Porcelain veneers are long-lasting, as they can last 15-20 years with proper care.
Porcelain veneers have the power to fix several types of smile problems (we’ll talk about these later on).
The porcelain material will make your new smile very attractive, realistic, and natural looking.
Porcelain veneers are customizable. Dr. Forester will make sure to match the rest of the natural teeth in regards to size, shape, and color.

What are DURAthin veneers?

DURAthin veneers offer a minimally invasive way to fix common smile problems. They are made from a material called cerinate porcelain.

DURAthins are made from a thinner piece of porcelain when compared to traditional porcelain veneers.

DURAthin veneers can fix smile problems just as porcelain veneers can, although DURAthin veneers are typically best for patients who already have nice shape and color.
The process of getting DURAthins takes approximately 72 hours to complete.
Only minor amounts of tooth enamel needs to be removed since they are a minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry option.
They are considered a minimally invasive (and painless!) procedure since drilling, sedation, or numbing are not required. This equals less prep-work, too.
They typically last 5-10 years with proper care.

Why Choose Veneers or DURAthin Veneers?

Revitalizing an unattractive smile can do wonders for your life. If you suffer from any of the following smile problems, you might benefit from veneers or DURAthins:

  • chipped teeth
  • broken teeth
  • gapped teeth
  • slightly misaligned or crooked teeth
  • irregularly-shaped teeth (either too long or too short)
