At Sullivan Dental Partners, we offer various cosmetic dentistry options and have choices that work with most budgets. This includes dental veneers in Brentwood, TN.

To learn whether dental veneers are right for you, we first schedule a consultation in our dental office. Your Brentwood, TN dentist will talk to you about veneers and other cosmetic dentistry options, especially if you’re considering multiple procedures or a full smile makeover. We also welcome your questions.

Fortunately, if you have healthy teeth and gums or have kept up with your preventive dentistry appointments, you’re probably a good candidate for dental veneers.

What Are Dental Veneers, and How Do They Work?

Dental veneers are slender shells of porcelain that your dentist bonds over the fronts of your teeth. To do so, we have to remove a little porcelain from your natural teeth, which means dental veneers are a permanent cosmetic dentistry option.

Just like natural teeth, veneers reflect light and shadow, making them appear natural. However, they conceal many smile flaws, including:

  • Gummy smiles
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Midline misalignment
  • Short or worn teeth
  • Chips in teeth
  • Discolored teeth

You may want to conceal flaws in one or two teeth or veneer your entire smile. The choice is yours!

Caring for Your New Dental Veneers in Brentwood, TN

With veneers, you brush, floss, and visit your dentist as usual for exams and teeth cleanings. It’s important to maintain the health of your gums to prevent gum disease and veneer failure. You should also talk to your dentist about a nightguard if you have been diagnosed with (or suspect) bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching).
