Believe it or not, porcelain veneers in Seymour can eliminate all these problems and give you a camera-ready smile you've always dreamed of having!

The Science Behind Smiling 

Scientists have proven the power of a smile over the years as we know that smiling releases "feel good" chemicals in your brain like serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. Therefore, smiling can make you feel happy, and because smiles are contagious, they can actually boost the spirits of those around you too!

So, the benefits are priceless when you invest in yourself to have a smile you feel good about sharing with the world.

What Are Porcelain Veneers? 

Dental veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells customized to fit over the front surface of your tooth to change its size, shape, and color.

The truth is most of us don't have perfect teeth. But porcelain veneers can give you the smile you've always wanted by concealing these problems:

  • Small tooth misalignment issues
  • Spacing or gaps between teeth
  • Broken, worn, or chipped teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Tooth size discrepancies
  • Stained or discolored teeth that don't respond to bleaching

Our dentists can use porcelain veneers to repair one or two teeth, or Dr. Corey and Dr. Haley can completely redesign your smile with porcelain veneers making it more symmetrical and appealing—think "Hollywood" smile. Porcelain veneers are your natural teeth, only better! Visit our Seymour dentist office at 11550 Chapman Hwy, Seymour TN 37865.

The Difference between Porcelain Veneers and Dental Bonding

While it can fix many of the same issues as porcelain veneers, there are a few differences between the two procedures:

  • Porcelain veneers are hand crafted by a technician in a dental lab. The process takes about two weeks to complete. Conversely, we can typically complete dental bonding during one appointment.
  • With the proper care, porcelain veneers tend to last 10 to 15 years. Dental bonding typically has a lifespan of about seven years.
  • Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent solution because our dentists remove a small amount of tooth enamel to fit the veneer to your tooth correctly.
