Porcelain Veneers In ALPHARETTA, GA
Esthetic Dental Solutions partners with ceramists accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry who work with us to produce superior artistic and functional porcelain veneers.

This means that the final product is fully personalized to you and your needs. Here are some common questions we get regarding porcelain veneers:
How long does it take to get porcelain veneers?
Our porcelain veneer process typically requires two appointments. At your first appointment, we will discuss your smile goals and begin preparing your teeth for treatment. This involves taking dental impressions for our ceramists, etching the tooth to make space for the veneer, and providing temporary veneers until your permanent ones are ready. Your second appointment will involve a try-on of your porcelain veneers to evaluate their fit and apperance. Once you are satisfied with your veneer, we will secure it to your tooth using dental cement.
What makes a person a good candidate for porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are meant to conceal blemishes on your teeth. Patients suffering from gapped teeth, worn-down teeth, and chipped or cracked teeth make great candidates for porcelain veneers. Additionally, if you have slightly misaligned teeth or stained, discolored teeth, porcelain veneers can help with that as well. However, it is important to note that some major cracks, chips, or damages will need a more thorough tooth restoration to guarantee tooth functionality and health. Dr. Hedlund will provide a thorough consultation regarding any affected tooth before offering porcelain veneer services.
Will the porcelain veneer match my other teeth?
Yes. We take our time in crafting your veneer so that it blends in seamlessly with your smile. The veneer is color-matched to your surrounding teeth, and the porcelain material it is created from mimics the shine of your natural teeth. There is no noticeable unwanted difference between your natural teeth and your porcelain veneer.
Do porcelain veneers hurt?
You should not experience any pain or discomfort throughout the entirety of the porcelain veneer process. The minor etching that is done to make space for your porcelain veneer can be done without an anesthetic. The porcelain veneers themselves should feel comfortable in your mouth and not interfere with your natural bite pattern.
