Porcelain veneers can transform an ordinary smile into a thing of beauty. Veneers have been around for nearly one hundred years, but like most things they are constantly improving. At Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentwood TN, we take veneers to their highest level.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade materials that are made to cover the fronts of teeth. Each veneer is custom-made, and can cover flaws like gaps, chips, or cracks.
It may surprise you to hear that veneers have been around so long. It probably won’t surprise you to learn of their origin. A Hollywood dentist first conceived of veneers as a way of giving movie stars a perfect on-screen smile.
The Latest in Veneers
Those earliest veneers were only temporary. Today, veneers are permanently attached to the fronts of teeth, and are meant to last for many years.
People who get our veneers first receive temporaries to wear while the final veneers are customized just for them. Once they are ready, they are bonded to the front. This is a time-consuming process, but when it’s finished, you’ll have a dazzling new smile.
We are proud to say that our own Dr. Dennis Wells has co-developed the latest generation of veneers. Like standard veneers, DURAthin and Micro-thin veneers are custom-made for each patient. They are also prepless. That means that unlike standard veneers, it is not necessary to remove any tooth enamal to place them. And the results are just as stunning.
At Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentwood TN we create gorgeous smiles with porcelain veneers, and cutting-edge DURAthin and Micro-thin veneers. You’ve love the results. Please give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
