Before beginning your dental treatment at Iroquois Family Dentistry in Nashville, TN, our team will discuss your cosmetic goals. Together, we can design restorations that achieve your desired effects. You will be a key player in this process and you can make suggestions and request changes until you are completely satisfied with the expected final results.
Preparing Your Teeth
Your dentist will first need to remove a small amount of enamel in order for your veneers to lay flat. This step can also help ensure a strong bond between your tooth and the porcelain.
Our doctors use conservative and gentle techniques, preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. The preparation process should involve minimal discomfort, even without local anesthesia. However, we do offer sedation for anxious patients. After your tooth has been prepared, your practitioner will take digital impressions of your teeth. These digital models will be much more precise than traditional impressions, and the imaging and design process will take a fraction of the time.
Removing a small amount of enamel will ensure the veneer looks completely natural.
Veneer Creation and Placement
At our dentistry office in Nashville, TN, we provide convenient, same-day restorations with our CEREC milling machine. This advanced technology can be used to make lifelike porcelain restorations such as dental crowns and will be used to fabricate your customized veneers. The device will carve the thin shells from dental-grade porcelain that will match the color and natural shine of your teeth. Because production happens on-site, we have complete control over the entire process, allowing us to provide truly exceptional veneers. In addition, we can prep, design, create, and place the restorations in as little as two hours.
Same-day veneers are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Once your veneers are finished, your dentist will ensure that you are happy with the look and feel of your restored smile. We can make any necessary changes to provide the most customized and lifelike results. Before attaching the veneers, we may lightly roughen the surface of the tooth or teeth receiving the restoration. In this way, we can help the veneers to attach to more securely. When you are satisfied with the appearance and fit of your veneers, we will securely bond them in place for a completely transformed smile.
