Dental veneers can be both a restorative and cosmetic treatment option for patients with damaged, misshapen teeth or gaps between the teeth. Dr. Paulen may also recommend dental veneers for teeth with discoloration or stains that will not respond to a teeth whitening treatment.
There are a variety of dental veneers available today, each with different benefits, costs and durability. Understanding your personal concerns, dental health goals and budget is an important part of making the right treatment choice.
For patients seeking an economical or temporary dental veneer solution, Dr. Paulen offers composite resin dental veneers in her Sandy Springs dentist office. Composite veneers are ideal for younger patients who have not yet finished growing or for adult patients who are not ready for the permanent and more expensive option of porcelain veneers.

Composite Veneers What to Expect
After an initial consultation to determine that composite veneers are right for you, Dr. Paulen will schedule a visit for the placement of your new smile.
Composite veneers can typically be placed during a single visit to Proud Smiles in Sandy Springas, during which the correct shade will be chosen and Dr. Paulen will prepare the surface of your teeth.
“Composite Veneers are an affordable alternative when porcelain is not yet possible. Composite Veneers are also great for teenagers; this treatment option allows for more facial growth and are more durable than direct bonding. Composite Veneers have allowed me to repair broken teeth the same day without waiting on the lab.” Dr. Paulen
Feeling good about your smile not only boosts your sense of confidence, it often leads to better oral hygiene habits that will keep it healthy for the long run. Dr. Paulen is dedicated to helping her patients achieve both optimal dental health, and a smile they are proud to share.

Composite-resin veneers are strong and durable. They can be compared with porcelain veneers, but degrade faster over time. Resin is not as durable as porcelain, but you will not have to worry about your composite-resin veneer falling apart.
No. Composite resin veneers can not be whitened. The material does not get brighter with traditional teeth whitening. Your dentist will recommend a teeth whitening procedure if necessary before getting your veneer in order to color-match it to your smile.
No. You can take care of your composite resin veneer as you would your natural teeth. We do recommend that you NOT chew very hard foods like ice with your veneer. This can damage the restoration because it’s not as durable as more permanent options.
