Veneers

Are your worn, chipped, or stained teeth making you feel self-conscious? Do you hide your smile while in public?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that conceal these cosmetic insecurities to create a stunning smile.

Our dentists at Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, can artfully place your veneers to create beautiful results and boost your confidence.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer, also called a dental veneer, is an ultra-thin shell that a dentist can attach to the surface of a tooth. Once bonded to the tooth, veneers obscure cosmetic concerns like chips, cracks, or stains. Each shell is made from porcelain or similar materials that flawlessly resemble the appearance of a natural tooth. Because of their lifelike results and the relative simplicity of the placement procedure, porcelain veneers have become one of the most popular treatment options in cosmetic dentistry.

Natural-Looking Results Create Stunning Smiles

Both crowns and porcelain veneers were used to conceal deep staining and gaps between this patient's teeth to create a stunning, cohesive smile. This combination of durable wafer-thin shells and tooth-colored restorations look just like natural teeth, with results that will last longer than professional whitening treatments or the use of resin bonding materials.

Ideal Dental Veneer Candidates Are in Good Oral Health

In general, the most important requirement affecting your ability to receive dental veneers is robust oral health. If you have major oral health issues, such as severe tooth decay or gum disease, other treatments will be necessary before you qualify for cosmetic dentistry. We can address virtually all of these concerns at our practice. Other factors that affect candidacy for porcelain veneers include:

Whether You Have Sufficient Enamel

Before your dentist can place your porcelain veneers, they have to remove a certain amount of enamel from your tooth. If you have very worn or thin enamel, you may not qualify for this form of dentistry.

Whether You Grind Your Teeth

Clenching or grinding your teeth can damage restorations like veneers. An oral appliance or another treatment for these issues may allow you to still undergo treatment.

Minor Misalignment Only

While porcelain veneers can address gaps or other minor types of misalignment, severely crooked teeth may still require orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign®.

Good Oral Hygiene

Consistent oral hygiene and regular checkups at our office in Nashville, TN, are essential for maintaining the integrity of the dental veneers and the health of your underlying teeth.

Ready for a Permanent Investment

Veneer dentistry is irreversible. If you are concerned about making permanent changes to your smile, you may want to consider an alternative treatment, such as dental bonding. Our team will be happy to discuss your options with you.

I am visiting Nashville from out of town and chipped a front tooth on the first day. I called Gulch Dental, and they gave me an appointment the next morning at 7:30 am. The tooth repair is actually unbelievable! You cannot see the repair at all, and I cannot feel any difference in my bite or the texture of my tooth! The staff was super professional and courteous, and I was back on my way by 7:50 am. Who would have thought that was even possible? I may start traveling to Nashville from Florida just to get my teeth cleaned.

We Use Advanced Materials to Provide Stunning Results

At Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, our dentists are dedicated to using the best material possible for optimal results. We offer veneers crafted from IPS e.max® and IPS Empress®. These two materials offer incredible strength and natural-looking results.

Both e.max and Empress mimic the qualities of natural tooth enamel to ensure your veneers blend with surrounding teeth. These materials are also exceptionally strong and can last many years with proper care.

Dental Veneers vs. Dental Bonding

While many cosmetic treatments exist, only veneers can achieve truly comprehensive results.

Depending on the issues you want to address, our dentists in Nashville, TN, can discuss potential alternatives to porcelain veneers. Dental bonding, for example, is used to treat many of the same conditions as veneers for a lower price. Instead of a porcelain shell, a resin material is shaped and bonded to the tooth. 

However, while bonding is a good alternative for treating an imperfect tooth, the resin bonding material cannot provide the same level of strength and durability that porcelain can.

In addition, the results of veneer treatment typically look more natural than dental bonding.

Dental Veneers vs. Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is another more affordable alternative to veneers. Both in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits can be effective at treating stained teeth, but these bleaching options have their limitations.

Teeth whitening can only whiten stains that originate on the surface of the teeth. Deeper layers of discolored tooth structure cannot be whitened. Veneers, by contrast, can conceal deep-set stains that appear on the front surface of a tooth.

Additionally, teeth can still become stained after whitening treatment. Porcelain veneers are made of stain-resistant materials, which means longer-lasting cosmetic dentistry benefits.

The Porcelain Veneers Timeline What You Can Expect

Placing veneers is an irreversible but minimally invasive procedure that can give you a stunning smile that lasts for over a decade.
Dental veneers can enhance your smile in just two office visits. The process is minimally invasive and virtually painless.
Dental veneers can enhance your smile in just two office visits. The process is minimally invasive and virtually painless.

Preparation:

First, your dentist will prepare each tooth that will receive a porcelain veneer by removing a thin layer of enamel. This step makes space to ensure the thin shell fits seamlessly onto the tooth.

Impressions:

Your dentist will then take impressions of your prepped teeth to create a wax mock-up. This allows you to see what your veneers will look like before treatment moves forward. We can make any requested changes to the design at this stage.

Fabrication:

Once we decide on specifics like color and shape, we will send your impressions to a trusted dental lab. In the meantime, you will receive temporary veneers that still allow you to chew and speak normally. Follow our instructions for proper care of these temporary veneers.

Placement:

Before placing your veneers, your dentist will test them for fit and aesthetics. Your dentist will then remove the temporary veneers and clean each prepared tooth with a cleansing solution designed to aid in the bonding process. The bonding agent is then applied to your teeth, and the dentist will secure your final veneers in place.

Life After  Porcelain Veneers Treatment

/

One of the greatest benefits of veneers is that you can begin to enjoy the results almost immediately. There is virtually no recovery or downtime needed, and your veneers will be ready to show off as soon as you leave our downtown Nashville dental office. With proper care, your new smile can last for over a decade.

Caring for Porcelain Veneers Is Simple MAINTAIN THE BEAUTY OF YOUR ENHANCED SMILE

Though we use durable, high-quality materials, veneers will still need to be replaced at some point. Excellent oral hygiene and continued care of your teeth and gums can extend the lifespan of your veneers.

Brush and Floss Regularly

You should continue good oral hygiene habits like brushing twice daily and flossing at least once daily. Maintaining the health of your teeth and gums is one of the best ways to ensure the longevity of your porcelain veneers.

Attend Routine Dental Visits

Coming to our office twice a year for routine cleanings will help maintain the health of your teeth and gums and extend the lifespan of your veneers and any other new restorations.

Avoid Biting Hard Surfaces

While the porcelain material we use is highly durable, it is not indestructible. You should avoid chewing on ice, biting your nails, nibbling on pens or drinking straws, and opening packaging with your teeth. These actions can chip or damage your dental veneers.

Avoid Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding can chip, crack, or wear down your porcelain veneers. If you grind your teeth during the night, our doctors can recommend an oral appliance that helps you avoid putting excessive pressure on your veneers.

Porcelain Veneer FAQ

Are dental veneers covered by insurance?

No. As a cosmetic dentistry procedure, dental veneers are considered an elective treatment rather than medically necessary. Thankfully, our financing options can keep veneer costs affordable by breaking the total price of the procedure into installments.

Will dental veneers ruin my teeth?

No. Just a small amount of tooth enamel is removed while prepping a tooth for a dental veneer. Typically, just a half millimeter of enamel is removed, and sometimes less. Losing a fraction of a millimeter of enamel will not have a significant impact on the structural integrity of a tooth or your oral health.

Can I smoke after getting dental veneers?

You technically can smoke or use chewing tobacco after getting dental veneers, but it's a bad idea. The veneers will not become stained, but tobacco products will discolor your natural teeth and increase your risk of gum disease. We often tell patients that getting dental veneers is a convenient excuse to kick their smoking or chewing tobacco habit for good.

What should I do if a veneer gets chipped or comes loose?

If a dental veneer is fractured or somehow gets dislodged, it's important that you contact our Nashville practice as soon as possible. Bring the debonded veneer or broken fragment with you if possible. Our dental team can assess the issue and determine the most effective treatment for this dental veneer problem.

I have had many past dental procedures at different practices where I have lived at the time. Some of them have been very lengthy and even traumatic. This dentist appointment experience was very efficient and great care was given to my needs. Understandable explanations were also given throughout the procedure.
