Dental veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer, helping patients correct imperfections of their teeth, including chips, stains, gaps, or misalignment.
Dental veneers are an ideal solution for fixing a damaged, imperfect, or worn tooth and can be used to completely makeover a smile. These veneers are placed over your natural teeth to improve their size and shape and are custom designed to match enamel color, making them virtually impossible to distinguish from your other teeth. If you are embarrassed to smile because your teeth are damaged, worn, or discolored, you can benefit from dental veneers. At our Hixson, TN, office, we offer porcelain veneers, composite veneers, and Lumineers® and provide personalized care that helps you achieve your best smile!
Dental veneers are commonly a one to two-visit treatment process and can serve as a painless alterative to orthodontic treatment. In order to ensure a proper fit without appearing bulky or unnatural, both porcelain and composite veneers require that your natural teeth be slightly adjusted, though composite veneers require less. To do this, we take off a small portion of tooth enamel so the dental veneers can fit comfortably over top. One of the most important steps of the treatment process is taking impressions of your adjusted teeth. These impressions are used to create your custom dental veneers to ensure a comfortable and natural fit. During your return visit to our Hixson, TN, office, we will place the veneers on your teeth and make any final adjustments so that your bite feels comfortable and your smile looks natural. Finally, we will permanently bond the dental veneers to your teeth and you will leave our office with a brand new beautiful smile that can last for decades!
Porcelain veneers are naturally translucent like normal teeth, are incredibly durable, and resistant to staining and chipping.
Composite veneers are sculpted to the teeth by layering resin to the tooth and shaping it to the correct shape and size.
Lumineers® are a type of dental veneer that provide all the same benefits as porcelain veneers, but do not need the natural tooth to be altered before being bonded. This is because Lumineers are much thinner than traditional dental veneers, though they remain strong and durable. Many patients choose Lumineers because they are less invasive than other veneer options and, because they do not alter the shape of natural teeth, are removable. Just like with any dental veneers, choosing to visit a dentist like Dr. Ken Randall who is trained in cosmetic dentistry treatments will ensure your new smile will be functional, natural, and beautiful!
