Blue Eyed and BeautifulHere in the Brentwood TN area, we talk to many patients who say they would like a “Hollywood smile.” They always want to know what cosmetic dental procedure would be best to get them the smile they are looking for. Of course, every patient is different, but one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures to make teeth whiter, straighter, and better is the use of porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are permanently affixed to the front of each tooth. Once they are put into place, veneers look exactly like natural teeth—but better!  Dental veneers can help solve a variety of dental issues, including chipped teeth, gaps, discoloration, and minor bite issues.

At Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry – Dennis J. Wells, DDS, we offer our patients a couple of options regarding dental veneers: standard porcelain veneers or DuraThin veneers. Standard dental veneers are permanent and require some tooth removal in order to place them. DuraThin veneers, invented by our own Dr. Dennis Wells, are a type of dental veneer that requires no removal of tooth enamel in order to place them. We often recommend this option for patients who have had teeth removed in the past for orthodontic reasons.

Contact us to find out which veneer option might be best for you.
