What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells placed over your natural teeth, covering cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Flax customizes your veneers to match your teeth color, shape, and size, allowing them to blend seamlessly into your smile. 

Using porcelain veneers for your smile makeover can help fix the following cosmetic dentistry problems:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen or miss-sized teeth
  • Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

Traditional Veneers

Traditional teeth veneers are about 0.5 mm thick. They require the dentist to remove a tiny portion of the tooth before placing them. By removing a small amount of enamel, the dentist creates space for the veneer to fit seamlessly over the tooth. This process enhances the aesthetic appeal of your teeth and provides strength and protection against future staining.

Minimal-Prep Veneers

Ultra-thin, minimal-prep veneers are often as thin as 0.3 mm. We can place this type of veneer with minimal or sometimes no tooth preparation at all. Your dentist can bond them directly to the front surface of the teeth with little to no enamel removal. This preserves more of the natural tooth structure.

Minimal-prep veneers are an excellent option for patients that want a minimally-invasive and reversible cosmetic dental procedure. Your dentist can remove them in the future, when you want to upgrade to a more permanent option. The minimal preparation also means a shorter treatment time and less discomfort for the patient. Additionally, these veneers are still as durable and stain-resistant as traditional veneers.

The Veneers Process: From Consultation to Transformation


The journey to your dream smile begins with a consultation at Flax Dental. During this initial appointment, our skilled professionals will assess your oral health, and discuss your smile goals. After reviewing your options, we will determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.


Next comes the tooth preparation phase. Dr. Flax will gently remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your affected teeth to create space. Don’t worry, this step is painless and ensures a snug fit.

If you opted for minimal-prep veneers, you may not need this step. We’ll then take precise impressions of your teeth to create custom veneers that fit your unique dental anatomy.

Temporary Veneers

The next phase is pacing temporary prosthetics while your permanent veneers are in fabrication at the dental lab. Dr. Flax will place temporary veneers to protect your teeth and give you a preview of your new smile. You will be able to use your teeth while wearing temporaries, however, you must be careful during this time.

Placement & Bonding

Once your custom veneers are ready, we will call you back to our Sandy Springs dental office. Dr. Flax will bond the final veneers to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Dr. Flax and his team meticulously ensure proper fit and alignment for a seamless result.

He will make any necessary adjustments to guarantee comfort and satisfaction. You will leave completely happy with a dazzling new smile.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Veneers

Caring for your porcelain veneers is simple and crucial to keeping your smile bright. Here are Dr. Flax’s tips for maintaining your stunning new smile:

  • Brush Gently: Use a soft toothbrush and gentle toothpaste to brush your teeth twice daily.
  • Floss Regularly: Clean between your teeth daily using floss, including around your veneers.
  • Protect from Hard Biting: Avoid biting on hard objects like pens or ice.
  • Guard for Sports: Wear a mouthguard during contact or high-intensity sports to shield your veneers.
  • Watch Your Diet: Limit foods that can stain your teeth, like coffee and red wine.
  • Avoid Crunching: Be cautious with hard foods to prevent pressure on your veneers.
  • Visit Flax Dental: Regular dental check-ups help monitor your veneers’ health.
  • Professional Care: Professional cleanings keep your veneers looking their best.

Caring for your porcelain veneers is a simple yet essential part of ensuring their long-lasting beauty and functionality. Practicing good oral hygiene and mindful dietary choices can help maintain your radiant smile for years. Remember, a little care goes a long way in preserving the dental veneers.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Are porcelain veneers suitable for everyone?

Yes, porcelain veneers are a suitable and versatile option for many seeking smile enhancement. However, a consultation with dental professionals is necessary to see if you’re an ideal candidate. You must be in good oral health and free of any other oral issues, like gum disease and cavities.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers have a great reputation for their strength and longevity. With proper care and maintenance, they can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years or even longer. Routine checkups are crucial for protecting your veneers and extending their lifespan.

Will getting porcelain veneers be painful?

The process of getting porcelain veneers is generally painless. Many dentists use a local anesthetic during teeth preparation to ensure comfort. Some patients might experience minor sensitivity after the procedure. However, temporary sensitivity will subside quickly and is manageable using over-the-counter pain medication.

Can I whiten my veneers?

Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining. However, traditional whitening methods don’t work on porcelain. Discuss teeth whitening options with a dental professional before getting veneers. We usually recommend getting a teeth whitening treatment before getting veneers.
