What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin layers of porcelain, which are custom-made to adhere to the front of natural teeth, thus enhancing the appearance of the smile. A skillfully designed dental veneer can remove many types of compromises in the smile, including misalignment, spaces, dark colors, chipped or worn teeth, and improper length.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers have a number of different benefits:

  • Durability – Thanks to modern dentistry and the use of and high-quality materials, porcelain dental veneers can last for 10+ years with proper care. However, many patients enjoy their veneers even longer!
  • Hides Imperfections – Dental veneers cover up minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, and tooth discoloration. If you aren’t blessed with great natural teeth you don’t have to worry; dental veneers can still dramatically improve the look of your smile.
  • Improved Confidence – The smile transformation that dental veneers provide is so dramatic that most patients report an immediate improvement in their confidence and self-esteem. No more hiding your smile in social or professional situations!
  • Natural Look and Feel Porcelain veneers are handcrafted to look and feel just like natural teeth. Most people you encounter won’t be able to tell you’ve had cosmetic dental work done.

Smile Design with Porcelain Veneers

After wearing the temporary dental veneers for a few weeks, we will receive the custom-designed porcelain veneers from our ceramist.
The process of smile design can most times be completed in just a few short weeks. After a comprehensive diagnostic review of your smile and your goals at Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry – Dennis J. Wells, DDS in Brentwood, Tennessee, we begin the veneers process with preparation of the surfaces of the teeth and designing your prototypes. You will leave our office with your new smile in temporary materials. With your approval, we will send photographs of the prototypes to our ceramist who will use this information as a blueprint in designing the porcelain veneers for teeth.
The final phase is the bonding procedure, a tedious and time-intensive process of placing and fusing each porcelain veneer to the front of your teeth. Once this phase is complete it’s time to celebrate! You now have the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Brief postoperative visits will assure us that everything has healed properly and your smile looks and feels great!

Who is a Candidate for Dental Veneers?

You may be a good candidate for dental veneers if any of the following apply:

  • Your teeth are stained.
  • You have minor cosmetic issues such as misshapen teeth, cracks, and chips.
  • You have sufficient tooth enamel.
  • Your oral health is in otherwise good shape.
  • You are looking to dramatically improve the overall aesthetic of your smile.

“I have smiled all of my life, but was embarrassed of my teeth. I was very skeptical of veneers but when I heard about DURAthins I knew this was the answer! Since I have had my DURAthins, I have never smiled so big! I always knew that my wedding day would be special, but the smile that was on my face that day was priceless.”
