Dental veneers can be both a restorative and cosmetic dentistry 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.
Many dental veneers are available today, each with different benefits, costs, and durability. Understanding your personal concerns, dental health goals, and budget is important in making the right treatment choice.
For patients seeking an economical or interim 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. They’re also ideal for adult patients who are not ready for the permanent and more expensive option of porcelain veneers.
Real Results Composite Veneers
Composite Veneers What to Expect
We schedule an initial consultation to determine that composite veneers are right for you. Then, Dr. Paulen will schedule a visit for the placement of your new smile.
Dr. Paulen can typically place composite veneers during a single visit to Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs. 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 confidence, it often leads to better oral hygiene habits that will keep it healthy for the long run. Dr. Paulen helps her patients achieve both optimal dental health and a smile they are proud to share.

Resin is not as durable as porcelain but can be repaired and polished over time. It has an average lifespan of up to 5 years or more, depending on your oral health and habits. The use of a nightguard can also prevent damage and help to prolong your results.
No. You can’t whiten composite resin veneers. The material does not get brighter with traditional teeth whitening. Your dentist will recommend a teeth whitening procedure if necessary before getting your veneer to color-match it to your smile.
No. You can take care of your composite resin veneer like 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 less durable than more permanent options.
