Dr Newman is an amazing dentist that truly cares about his patients. We have been using him for years and he has never let us down. He listens to his patients concerns and will give them the honest truth. He is conservative yet he also is up to date with the latest advances in dentisty.
You don’t have to dread going to the dentist here. Besides the office being absolutely clean and beautifully designed, the staff is next level friendly. They value your time and always run on time which is so nice!
What Are Dental Veneers?
These thin shells of dental ceramic are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth to conceal aesthetic flaws. Porcelain veneers are made using medical-grade porcelain that is incredibly durable and natural-looking.
If you take a close look at your teeth, you will notice that the enamel has translucent qualities. In other words, some light is able to pass through them. Porcelain also has a translucent surface, making the material well-suited for use in dental work.
Additionally, porcelain can be color-matched to suit the patient’s preferences. At the practice of Clint Newman, DDS, we can match the shade of the porcelain to your teeth to produce natural-looking results. If your teeth are affected by stains, or if you prefer a whiter appearance, the restorations can be made in a purer shade of white. You can also elect to undergo professional teeth whitening beforehand for a more dramatic enhancement.
An Incredibly Strong Solution
Because of its lifelike appearance and durable qualities, porcelain is one of the most popular materials used in dentistry. It is commonly used to create crowns and dental bridges. Dental restorations made of porcelain can be expected to last 10 years or more. However, the lifespan of your restorations will depend on how well you care for your teeth and gums, daily wear and tear due to biting and chewing, and other factors. Patients who maintain a good oral health care routine, avoid hard and crunchy foods, and do not chew on their fingernails or other objects can prolong the life of their porcelain restorations.

Quickly Enhance Your Entire Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because they can help you transform your smile in just two appointments. While orthodontic treatment can take several months or even years to correct crowded or gapped teeth, these thin porcelain shells can help you address these concerns in a fraction of the time. This can make it a great option for patients who have an important upcoming event such as a wedding, graduation, or public speaking engagement.

Do You Qualify for This Treatment?
Be in Good Oral HealthBefore undergoing any cosmetic treatment, you should have a healthy smile. If you have cavities, gum disease, severe bite misalignment, or other oral health issues, Dr. Clint Newman or Dr. Thomas Underwood will need to resolve them prior to moving ahead with cosmetic treatment.
Have Healthy EnamelTo make room for your veneers, one of our dentists will need to remove some of your enamel during the preparation phase of the treatment. Therefore, you should have enough enamel to protect the tooth following this alteration.
Manage Teeth Grinding
Although porcelain is very strong, the material is not indestructible. If you grind your teeth excessively, it can increase the risk of fracturing your restorations. In some cases, an oral appliance can help. Dr. Newman or Dr. Underwood can fabricate a custom oral appliance that can be worn during sleep to protect your restorations from excessive force.
Have Correctable IssuesThese thin custom shells can treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns. But if you suffer from pronounced misalignment or severely crooked or gapped teeth, you might be a better candidate for other treatments such as Invisalign.
Maintain Realistic Expectations
Veneers will need to be replaced at some point in the future, and teeth prepped for traditional veneers will always require some kind of restoration. If you are comfortable with this aspect of veneers, we can move ahead with treatment.
Practice Good Oral HygieneAlthough porcelain is resistant to stains and decay, your surrounding teeth are not. In order to maintain the results of your procedure, you will need to commit to a good oral hygiene routine after treatment. Our cosmetic dentists will instruct you on how to care for your new veneers to ensure that they look great and last as long as possible.

A Solution for Many Cosmetic Needs
But doesn't dental bonding achieve the same results?
Comparing Dental Veneers and Dental Bonding
One of the most commonly used alternatives is dental bonding.
Although dental bonding is reversible and more affordable, it does not offer the same strength, long-lasting results, or lifelike outcomes as veneers. If these benefits are important to you, dental veneers may be a better investment.

"Dr Newman and his staff are top notch! I have been struggling with all these non caring short staffed dentists offices all around Nashville, and was excited to get an appointment as quickly as I was needing one.

During your in-office consultation, our cosmetic dentists will determine which brand is best suited to your needs.

Traditional Veneers vs. LUMINEERS®:
When comparing porcelain veneers and LUMINEERS, it is important for patients to understand their similarities and differences. LUMINEERS is a brand of veneers that requires little to no alteration of the existing tooth structure. However, this treatment can result in a thicker tooth that may be more difficult to clean and floss. For patients in the Nashville, TN, area, Dr. Newman and Dr. Underwood offer three premium materials that are superior to LUMINEERS in terms of long-lasting results and patient satisfaction.
If you are thinking about LUMINEERS, here are some important factors to consider:
Differences between Veneers and LUMINEERS
When considering which type to choose, it is important to understand the main differences between the two products. LUMINEERS are fabricated using Cerinate® porcelain, an exceptionally strong material that can be both very thin and strong. However, to compensate for the thinness of LUMINEERS, the material must be more opaque to properly conceal the underlying imperfections. In contrast, traditional veneers are more translucent, allowing the material to closely mimic the qualities of natural teeth. The thickness of veneers and LUMINEERS also influences the method of placement. With ultra-thin LUMINEERS, little to no enamel is removed before placing the restoration. Therefore, the natural structure of your tooth is maintained and the procedure is reversible. Porcelain veneers are thicker and require Dr. Newman to remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of the treated teeth. This process ensures that your veneers will fit properly without appearing bulky.
Disadvantages of LUMINEERS
Due to their thin design, LUMINEERS generally cannot provide the same lifelike results as Dr. Newman's high-quality porcelain veneers. They do not possess the same subtle characteristics as traditional options and often cannot adequately mask severe discoloration. In addition, since the underlying teeth are not altered in any way, LUMINEERS may make patients' teeth may appear large or bulky. LUMINEERS are also more likely to affect your speech, biting habits, and comfort. For many patients, LUMINEERS are more difficult to keep clean, which can lead to oral health concerns.

Recovering from the Procedure

In general, you can care for your new smile just like you would care for your natural teeth. To protect them from premature damage or fractures, you should avoid certain habits such as:
- Chewing on ice

- Flossing up and down vigorously
- Biting your nails
- Opening packages using your teeth

Are There Any Risks?
In general, our patients face few risks and experience only very minor side effects after treatment. Patients may experience some sensitivity after the teeth are prepared or resized. The most important factor that patients should be aware of is that treatment is irreversible, and the dental veneers will have to be replaced if they chip, fall off, or become worn.
Dr. Newman and his team are the best in Nashville hands down! Whether you’re going in for a general clean or cosmetic work you’ll be treated with the best care and happy with your results.

We're Always Available to Answer Your Questions
What are porcelain veneers?
Crafted from advanced dental ceramic, porcelain veneers are thin shells that fit over the front surfaces of your anterior teeth to conceal a range of cosmetic issues.
Who is a candidate for this treatment?
Patients with chips, cracks, discoloration, and minor misalignment can achieve a significant improvement in the appearance of their smile after treatment. There are certain conditions that can limit your candidacy for veneers. Dr. Newman will assess your oral health and determine the most effective treatment option for your needs.
What brands are offered at your Nashville practice?
We provide three brands: MAC, IPS e.max, and IPS Empress. All three brands utilize high-end materials for attractive results.
Can this solution treat all teeth?
They are used to treat the anterior teeth (the teeth at the front of your smile). For the back teeth, we utilize alternative treatments, such as dental crowns, that can handle the force of your bite more effectively.
How long does it take to receive a porcelain veneer?
Generally, it takes about one to two weeks between making the impressions and receiving the final product from our partner dental laboratory.
What types of imperfections or conditions can be treated?
Porcelain veneers are highly versatile and can treat a range of cosmetic concerns, including crooked or overlapping teeth, misshapen teeth, gaps or spaces between teeth, severe discoloration or staining, disproportionate teeth, chips, cracks, and wear.
Is the treatment reversible?
In most cases, the results are considered permanent. During the procedure, Dr. Newman will change the structure of your teeth to properly place the ultra-thin shells. Without this process, they would appear bulky and unnatural. The alterations to your enamel make it necessary to have some kind of restoration in place at all times.
How long do they typically last?These restorations can last 10 years or longer. For some patients, they can last even longer. Their life expectancy depends on several factors, including proper maintenance.
What maintenance is required?
You can care for them the same way as your natural teeth: brush twice and floss at least once daily. We can also monitor the condition of your restorations and the health of your teeth at each six-month checkup.
What can I do to make sure they last?
Patients should avoid chewing hard non-food items (such as pens) and using your teeth as tools. It's important to remember that while your veneers are stain-resistant, your natural teeth are not. You can maintain the color and vibrancy of your results by limiting your consumption of dark-colored drinks, such as wine, coffee, tea, or soda. Tobacco products should also be avoided.
