Dr. Robert Pate, cosmetic dentist at Athens Family Dental, is now offering patients a quick and virtually painless alternative for transforming their smile without the use of orthodontia or surgery. Using veneers, Dr. Pate is able to design and create an entirely new smile that patients can be confident in showing off.

Though many patients have healthy teeth free of plaque and decay, they still may not be satisfied with the overall look of their smile due to gapping, crowding, staining, or even just the size of their teeth. Using veneers, Dr. Pate can conceal these issues and create an entirely new look for the patient.

“Veneers are a great option for patients who have minor cosmetic flaws that they want taken care of, or even mild orthodontic issues that they would like concealed,” said Dr. Robert Pate. “Veneers are a quick and very painless way to finally get a beautiful, confident smile.”

Veneers are generally made of a durable ceramic material that is very thin—similar to a shell. They are designed to cover just the front portion of the natural tooth structure and are held in place with a strong bonding agent.

The process of placing veneers takes approximately 2-3 weeks and series of office visits. During the first visit, Dr. Pate assesses the patient’s teeth and discusses with them the goals of cosmetic treatment. Impressions are then taken of the patient’s teeth and sent to an external lab that creates the veneers. 10-14 days later, the patient returns to receive the new veneers. They are bonded permanently to the front of the existing teeth and effectively hide issues like chipped, cracked stained, gapped, or misaligned teeth.

While veneers are permanent, they generally have a lifetime of 10-15 years. If cared for properly, their lifespan can be extended.

In addition to providing veneers for his local patients, Dr. Pate is also a highly trained dental implants dentist in Athens, GA for patients who want a more permanent alternative to dentures or partial dentures. Dr. Pate is also a certified sedation dentist in Athens, GA for patients who prefer a more comfortable and relaxing dentist.

Dr. Pate is one of the most experienced dentists in the Athens area and has been practicing for nearly 35 years. He completed his dental education at The Medical College of Georgia, School of Dentistry and has completed several fellowships and certificates in specialized areas of dentistry, including implantology, Laser Periodontal Therapy, conscious sedation, and dental anesthesiology. Dr. Pate has also received additional training in the treatment of jaw and facial pain, and offers TMJ dentistry in Athens, GA.
