Porcelain veneers are a fast, effective treatment option for cosmetic imperfections in your smile. Affixed to the front of your teeth, these porcelain shells can conceal stains, cracks, and chips. They also create a straight, beautiful facade in front of slightly crooked or spaced teeth.
We offer three porcelain veneer brands: MAC, IPS Empress® and IPS e.max® veneers. At our Nashville, TN, dental office, Dr. Clint Newman will determine which brand of veneer is best suited to your needs, lifestyle, and budget.
Our Porcelain Veneer Brands
Thanks to their unique construction, MAC veneers are two to three times more durable than traditional porcelain veneers. That means less damage from wear and tear, longer lifespan, and less need for repair.
The best part is that MAC veneers do not involve a radically different placement process. In fact, the process is identical to the prep and placement of traditional porcelain veneers: a fraction of a millimeter of tooth structure is removed so that an impression can be taken; it is from this impression that the MAC veneer is custom crafted.
We offer three porcelain veneer brands: MAC, IPS Empress® and IPS e.max® veneers.
The IPS Empress® brand veneer is leucite reinforced ceramic featuring a wide range of shades and layering options. Dr. Newman can match these veneers to the look and shade of your natural teeth. Empress® Esthetic veneers are known for their natural appearance and durability. They can be pressed to certain strengths and layered to create an optimal look that fits your smile.
The IPS e.max® is an alternative porcelain veneer option with an emphasis on durability. These veneers are made of pressed ceramic over lithium disilicate (a high-strength ceramic material). Lithium disilicate and leucite are exceptionally strong materials that are highly durable, but they can also look astonishingly natural. Both e.max® and Empress® veneers are applied using similar processes.
During your initial visit to one of our offices, Dr. Newman will speak with you to establish what brand of veneers is the best choice for you. The two of you may also review porcelain veneer before and after pictures of past patients. The next step is the preparation of your teeth. The porcelain veneers procedure is simple and straightforward and can be completed in one to two appointments.
