Porcelain Veneers in Brentwood, TN
We believe that everyone deserves to look their best and feel confident about the smile they present to the world. If something about yours prevents you from sharing a big, confident grin, porcelain veneers conceal a multitude of aesthetic flaws.
Dr. Haley E. Schmitt loves working with patients to bring out the best in their healthy smiles. Using beautiful, realistic-looking porcelain veneers, she and her team can customize your dream smile in as few as two appointments.
Enhance Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are tooth-shaped porcelain shells with a translucent appearance similar to tooth enamel. A veneer is very thin—about the thickness of a contact lens—and conceals any tooth flaws beneath it for a natural-looking, flawless appearance.
Since a veneer covers the front of a tooth, we can use one or more to conceal the following flaws:
- Broken teeth
- Cracked or worn teeth
- Wide gaps between teeth
- Irregularly shaped or sized teeth
- Mild tooth misalignment
- Stained, dark, or discolored teeth
Dental veneers are so popular because they can create a total transformation for a brand new, beautiful look. Dr. Schmitt knows that the best cosmetic dentistry is a perfect blend of art and science, and she loves translating her patients' smile visions into reality.
5 Steps for Getting Porcelain Veneers
Whether you need a single veneer or a full set to perfect your smile, count on us to make the process straightforward and efficient! First, Dr. Schmitt checks your teeth for signs of cavities or gum disease she needs to address before placing veneers.
Dr. Schmitt will then perform several steps to customize your veneers to your needs.
- Remove a thin layer of enamel from the teeth she's treating to ensure the veneers fit properly.
- Take mess-free digital impressions of the teeth that we use to virtually design your new veneers.
- Send your case to a top-quality custom dental lab in our area that fabricates your final veneers.
- Place temporaries to protect your teeth while we wait for the lab.
- Schedule a return visit to adjust your final veneers for fit and bond them securely to your teeth
It's extremely rewarding for us to watch this smile transformation take place under our hands, and it still feels a bit like performing magic; one minute, the look of your teeth is holding you back, and the next—voila, you have a perfect smile!
Direct Composite Veneers
Since we need to permanently alter teeth to place veneers, they are a lifetime commitment. If you are apprehensive about the prospect, we also create direct veneers.
This version of veneers uses tooth-colored composite resin that we apply directly to the tooth or teeth we’re treating to give them a new look. Composite veneers can be removed in the future if you change your mind or want to upgrade to porcelain veneers.
