Although a chipped tooth is generally considered a “minor” dental problem, its effect on the appearance of a person’s smile can be enough to make someone hide that smile from the rest of the world. Fortunately, today’s cosmetic dentists are well-prepared to address such scenarios.
Dr. Jolanda Warren, a “Top Cosmetic Dentist in Atlanta” according to peers and patients, firmly believes that everyone has the right to flash a gorgeous smile. Now, everyone can show off a brilliant smile with the help of porcelain veneers.
Basics of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain used to mimic the natural look of teeth. It also provides the tooth it is applied to much-needed strength and resilience, aiding enamel in the prevention of tooth decay.
Generally, porcelain veneers may be used to address the following dental issues:
- Discolored Teeth
- Worn Down Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
- Cracked Teeth
- Irregularly-Shaped Teeth
- Uneven Teeth
- Gaps between Teeth
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Even if you aren’t, Dr. Warren can easily assess the condition of your teeth to help you find other cosmetic dentistry services that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

What Is CEREC
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The CEREC technology allows the dentist to perform a number of dental procedures in one simple sitting, whereas before, several visits may have been needed to properly restore teeth with ceramics.
The CEREC system combines CAD/CAM technology with 3D photography to create custom fit porcelain restorations in minutes. The CEREC technology can match the natural color and structure of an actual tooth, making it virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth.
Benefits of Same Day Dentistry
Conventional dentistry requires multiple visits for most dental procedures. With the CEREC technology, Dr. Warren can digitally scan your teeth and design a metal-free restoration with precision in minutes. The esthetic characteristics such as color and luster can be adjusted before the final restoration is permanently secured to your tooth.
With same day dentistry, you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable temporaries, multiple visits and time off work. Dr. Warren can get you in and out of her dentist office quickly, while still delivering high quality results that last.
Same Day Dentistry Procedures CEREC technology is used in a variety of restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures including:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Dental Crowns
- Inlays & Onlays (Porcelain Fillings)
How Long Does CEREC Take?
On average, a CEREC crown procedure takes approximately 3 hours. There is plenty of downtime while our machines fabricate your crown, during which you can relax in the chair with your pillows and blankets! Although 3 hours may seem like a long time, it is significantly faster than the old method. Rather than going home with a temporary crown and waiting weeks before trying-in the final crown, you will leave our office with your final restoration in one visit!
