What Is a Porcelain Veneer?

A veneer is a thin layer of medical-grade porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of teeth, immediately transforming them to create a more symmetrical and attractive smile. By using porcelain veneers, Dr. Andrew Lunn can alter the color, size, shape, and texture of each tooth to create the smile you've always wanted.

He has decades of experience, and his dedication to detail along with his understanding of the artistic side of dentistry allows him to craft veneers that hide imperfections while complementing your natural features.   

Meanwhile, porcelain veneers can do more than change the appearance of your teeth. They can also correct bite problems if you have an issue such as a chipped tooth. Veneers can also cover large gaps between teeth. In many cases, patients with minor alignment issues choose this solution as an alternative to orthodontics in order to achieve a straight, symmetrical smile.

During a consultation at Chattanooga Family Dentistry, Dr. Lunn can determine if veneers are right for you.

Why Are Veneers So Popular?

Many patients turn to porcelain veneers because they:

  • Are durable and stain-resistant
  • Mask stains and discoloration
  • Are customized to fit your one-of-a-kind smile
  • Can reshape and lengthen teeth
  • Yield immediate results
  • Can last 10 or more years with proper care

Will People Know?

Veneers have come a long way from the bulky and unnatural-looking restorations of years past. Advancements in technology have made dental veneers more lifelike and versatile than ever before. 

The new types of porcelain used to make dental veneers have made them stronger and allow them to reflect light much like natural teeth. Today's porcelain veneers are nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth. 

Meanwhile, the natural shade selection that Dr. Lunn uses makes the transition from your veneers to your natural teeth appear seamless.

If needed, Dr. Lunn can offer additional dental treatments, such as teeth whitening and dental crowns, to offer a more comprehensive transformation. In fact, a complete smile makeover can be an excellent choice for those who want to achieve a dramatic upgrade in their smile. 

We go the extra mile by working closely with select dental labs to create beautiful cosmetic results for people with all types of needs.

What to Expect

Dental veneers can generally be placed in just two visits to our practice:

Treatment Planning

Dr. Lunn begins by using state-of-the-art digital imaging technology to understand your smile, right down to the smallest detail. This insight lets him develop a custom treatment plan with a much higher quality of care.

Preparation

Each tooth will be prepared by removing a small portion of the enamel from the tooth surface. Next, a precise impression of your teeth will be taken.

Temporary Veneers

During this first visit, temporary veneers will be placed over your prepared teeth to protect them until your permanent veneers are crafted. 

Veneer Fabrication

Once all the essential information is collected, Dr. Lunn sends the details to the dental laboratory to create veneers to his exact specifications. Our office only works with state-of-the-art dental labs that can meet the exacting standards established by Dr. Lunn. 

Try-In

A follow-up visit is scheduled after the laboratory returns your porcelain veneers and they have been inspected by Dr. Lunn. During this visit, your temporary veneers will be removed. At this point, Dr. Lunn will compare your new veneers with your teeth to ensure they exceed your expectations.

Adjustments

After conducting a general cleaning, Dr. Lunn then secures the new porcelain veneers to your teeth, adjusting each one to ensure the fit and placement are impeccable and comfortable.

If a patient has tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues, these problems must be addressed first. We can provide any necessary preparatory treatments in-office.

In addition, if you grind or clench your teeth, you may not be a good candidate for veneers. While dental porcelain is quite strong, the forces exerted by bruxism can cause veneers to break or come off entirely.

In many cases, we can treat the underlying causes of bruxism, such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), allowing you to receive veneers.

The best way to find out if you are a good candidate is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lunn, who has years of experience creating custom porcelain veneers.

How Do I Care for Veneers?

You take care of veneers just like you take care of your natural teeth. Keep in mind, veneers can be damaged by:  

  • Crunching on ice
  • Biting your fingernails
  • Chewing on pens or other hard objects
  • Tearing open packages with your teeth

Although veneers are strong, they will need to be eventually replaced.

Are There Other Options?

Some choose dental bonding (sometimes called composite veneers) instead of veneers to treat aesthetic concerns with their teeth. This option involves applying tooth-colored resin to your teeth in order to cover imperfections. It is less costly, but in some cases, this solution may not be able to provide the results you want. If neither of these solutions can conceal the imperfections you wish to address, a crown may provide a solution.

Dr. Lunn provides each of these cosmetic options, and can help decide which is best for you.
