Are you hiding your smile due to minor imperfections? Has teeth whitening not given you the results you hoped for?
Veneers offer an effective solution to minor cosmetic flaws.
Dentists Herb Blumenthal and Jason Collier can expertly place veneers at their Cordova, TN, practice to give you a beautiful smile.
Am I a Good Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Sufficient Tooth Enamel
Before dental veneers are placed, a portion of your tooth's enamel has to be removed to create space for your new restorations. Patients wanting dental veneers will need enough enamel left over so the veneer can be bonded to the tooth.
Good Oral Health
Patients wanting this cosmetic dentistry procedure should be in good oral health. Those suffering from other dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease will need to have those problems treated before veneers can be placed.
Minor Misalignment Issues
Slightly crooked, gapped, or overcrowded teeth can be easily addressed through veneers. However, severely misaligned teeth will need to be seen by an orthodontist prior to veneer placement.
Good Oral Hygiene
Once veneers are placed, they can be cared for just like your natural teeth. Patients should already be in the habit of brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and coming in for routine checkups twice a year before getting dental veneers.
Free of Bruxism
Patients needing veneers should not grind their teeth (called bruxism). While the porcelain shells are incredibly durable, they are not indestructible. Bruxism can cause your new restorations to chip, crack, and wear down.

A Stunning New Smile Thanks to Veneers
The Process Of Receiving Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are a simple, minimally invasive dental procedure to create your dream smile. The whole process only takes three appointments.
"There is virtually no downtime after this dental work, so you can enjoy your new, gorgeous smile as soon as you leave our office."
We Also Offer Lumineers A No-Prep Veneer Option
Lumineers are a great option for patients who wish to transform their smile without diminishing the integrity of their natural teeth. Because porcelain veneers require the removal of a layer of tooth enamel, they are a permanent change to your teeth. Lumineers do not require this preparation of the natural tooth and can later be removed. This makes them a great option for patients who are hesitant about making permanent changes to address minor dental concerns. However, Lumineers are not as durable as porcelain veneers and only last around 5-7 years with proper care. Reach out to our dental office to learn more about your cosmetic dentistry options.

Make Your Veneers Last Care Tips for Longevity
Maintain Good Oral Hygiene
Porcelain veneers should be cared for just like your natural teeth. You should still brush twice daily, floss once daily, and visit our Memphis and the Mid-South area office twice a year for routine cleanings to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Avoid Biting Hard Surfaces
While your veneers are more durable than resin bonding, they are not indestructible. You should avoid biting your nails, chewing on ice, or opening packaging with your teeth as this can damage your restorations.
Avoid Grinding Your Teeth
If you suffer from bruxism, talk with one of our dentists about being fitted for an oral appliance. This can help protect your restorations from the wear and pressure teeth grinding puts on them.
