Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance and durability of your teeth by concealing stains and chips and even correcting misalignments. They fit over the front of a tooth for a long-lasting, natural-looking enhancement. At our practice serving the Memphis area, our dentists can use porcelain veneers to fix a single tooth or even all of a patient's front teeth. Our dentists are experienced in the placement of porcelain veneers and have helped patients throughout Tennessee turn their dream smiles into realities.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom crafted to fit over the front surface of a tooth. Porcelain veneers are bonded to a tooth to conceal minor imperfections.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer one of the most versatile cosmetic options available. At our practice serving the Memphis area, we use porcelain veneers to camouflage cracks, chips, and discolorations, close gaps between teeth, straighten the appearance of slight misalignments, and create an overall uniform smile. Veneers look so natural because porcelain very precisely mimics the color and light-reflecting properties of tooth enamel. Versatile and highly durable, porcelain veneers can be applied to one tooth or to several. We can even apply veneers to all of the front teeth for the ultimate smile makeover.
The Porcelain Veneers Process
The placement of porcelain veneers typically takes two visits to our practice serving all of Tennessee. During the first appointment, our dentist will prepare the teeth to receive veneers by removing a thin layer of enamel. This will create space to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. Then, an impression of the prepared teeth will be made and sent to a laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. You will be fitted with temporary veneers until your permanent veneers are ready. Once we receive your permanent veneers, you will return to our office so that they can be bonded in place. At this point, our dentist will make slight adjustments to the porcelain veneers if needed so that they fit perfectly and blend in with your smile.
