At Feather Touch Dental Care in Atlanta, GA, we provide beautiful porcelain dental veneers. Veneers are applied to the front of your teeth to cover minor imperfections. They create a beautiful, symmetrical smile you can be proud to share.


Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that go on top of enamel most often. The best candidates for porcelain veneers are those that want minor cosmetic changes with their teeth. You can do anything from closing gaps, changing shade, small changes in shape or size of the teeth and really have a fuller smile. The process of getting a veneer is actually relatively easy. What we do is we very lightly prepare the tooth, taking away very little tooth structure, keeping us in the enamel at all times. Then we put you in a temporary and have the lab process porcelain veneers to the correct shade and shape. You'll come back about two weeks later and try on the veneers and make sure that you're happy with them and get them cemented on at that time. Veneers can drastically improve the look of a smile. I've had patients who have had veneers done who actually immediately started crying of joy when they saw their veneers for the first time because it was that life-changing for them. The next time I saw them they were more bubbly. Their personalities were brighter and they just were overall much happier with themselves and their smile.
