Porcelain Veneers

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?

Most people who are self-conscious of their smile are good candidates for dental veneers. However, there are a few factors that can affect your candidacy.

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.

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."
"There is virtually no downtime after this dental work, so you can enjoy your new, gorgeous smile as soon as you leave our office."

Consultation

The first step is to call our practice serving Memphis and the Mid-South area to request your consultation. At this appointment, one of our dentists will go over your oral health and cosmetic goals and ensure you are not suffering from any underlying oral health issue like gum disease.

Preparation

At your next dental appointment, your dentist will prep each tooth that will receive a veneer. A portion of enamel from your natural tooth will be removed so there is space for your restorations to be placed.

Impression

Once the enamel is removed, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. Our dentist can then show you a preview of what your new smile will look like after your porcelain veneers are placed.

Creation

Your impressions will be sent to our chosen lab that will craft and hand-finish your veneers. The whole fabrication process takes around three weeks to complete. You will be fitted with temporary veneers during that time.

Placement

Once your custom dental veneers have been created, you will come back to our Mid-South area office to have your permanent veneers placed. You will view your porcelain veneers before placement so you can see their color and shape. Your dentist will then use a cleaning solution on each prepared tooth to facilitate bonding. The bonding agent is then placed and your dentist will meticulously secure your veneers to each tooth.

Enjoy

There is virtually no downtime after receiving porcelain veneers. You can leave our office smiling wide with your new gorgeous smile.

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

Unlike resin bonding, porcelain veneers are incredibly durable and, with proper care, can last for more than 10 years.

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.
