Porcelain Veneers in Brentwood, TN
Get a New, Flawless Smile Fast
Your smile shows a glimpse of who you are. Dental imperfections can diminish your confidence and make you want to hide your smile.
If your teeth are cracked, crooked, discolored, or have gaps, veneers are a quick and easy way to enhance your smile. In just two visits to our Brentwood office, Dr. Rice can give you the smile you really want.
Porcelain veneers are a durable, natural-looking alternative to fix imperfections in your smile. They’re thin porcelain shells that attach to the surface of your teeth, eliminating a variety of issues. Veneers are stain-resistant, don’t scuff easily, and won’t change color over time.
Who Is A Candidate for Veneers?
Are you embarrassed about your smile? Veneers improve the appearance of your teeth by changing their color, shape, size, or length to create a seamless-looking smile. They’re commonly used to fix:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Discoloration or stains
- Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth
- Small or worn down teeth
If you have any of these minor imperfections, then you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers. Not only will veneers enhance your smile, but they’ll also improve your oral health.
It’s a Fast & Easy Process
During your initial consult, Dr. Rice will evaluate what type of results you want and discuss your treatment options. If you choose veneers, we can begin the process right away.
We’ll take an impression of your teeth to determine which color and shape will seamlessly blend with your smile. Then Dr. Rice will send these high-quality images to our dental laboratory to create your veneers. This process typically takes two to four weeks.
Once your veneers are ready, we’ll be ready to complete the final step in revitalizing your smile. Dr. Rice may need to remove a small portion of enamel from the surface of your tooth to ensure your veneers will fit perfectly. We’ll also clean and polish your teeth for smooth placement.
To ensure you won’t feel any pain or discomfort, Dr. Rice will numb the affected area before placing your veneer. She’ll then precisely place your veneer over the prepared tooth and secure it using a special dental adhesive.
After just two appointments, you’ll have a beautifully restored smile that you can be proud of.
