When it comes to cosmetic dentistry in Nashville, TN, veneers are one of our most popular, effective treatments. If you are interested in almost instantly improving the overall appearance of your teeth and smile, porcelain veneers may be the right option for you.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Generally speaking, veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural look of a tooth. They also improve the strength and resilience of a tooth that is comparable to natural enamel. Porcelain veneers are also designed to complement the contour of an existing tooth. Once they are created, they are directly bonded to the existing tooth’s enamel.

Veneers can result in a more dramatic cosmetic improvement than braces or crowns. Not only can they be used to enhance the overall appearance of a tooth and eliminate fractures, chips, or discoloration, but they can also be used to correct small misalignments and close minor gaps between teeth.

The Process

You can improve your smile with veneers in just one visit to our office. During your visit, you can expect the following to occur:

  • We will clean the tooth and determine what shade should be used for the veneer.
  • We will take an impression of the tooth and clean the existing tooth with pumice and water.
  • The veneer will be securely bonded to the tooth.
  • Any excess material or polish will be removed from the margins of the veneer.

After you get veneers, the best way to take care of them is to continue brushing and flossing like usual. You should also consider limiting coffee consumption and other foods that could stain your teeth.
