Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers


What do you see when you look at your smile? What is the first thing that you notice? Does it make you happy, or does it make you doubt yourself? Teeth can suffer from a wide variety of cosmetic problems, and separate procedures to fix each one can be both costly and time-consuming. Porcelain veneers, however, are able to correct and mask multiple flaws at the same time, including:

  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Obvious gaps between teeth

Each one of these imperfections can dramatically affect how you look. Porcelain veneers are a simple way to completely makeover your smile and give you your confidence back.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front of your teeth in order to improve their appearance. They offer a much less invasive way to fix a multitude of cosmetic issues, and can enhance a patient’s teeth both aesthetically and functionally. The high-quality ceramic material is able to faithfully replicate a natural tooth’s color, shape, size, and strength. It is also non-porous, making it stain-resistant. It will leave you with teeth that are both pleasing to look at and can be trusted day to day.

What Is the Procedure Like?

The procedure is quick, painless, and can usually be completed in just two easy visits. To start, you just need to come see us at Chattanooga Dental Arts. This will give Drs. Jancy Parkerson-McGovern and Daniel McGovern the chance to take a look at your teeth and gums to determine if porcelain veneers are the right solution for your smile. They only require that you have a minimal amount of dental structure removed and are very conservative.

If you both decide to proceed, they will start by buffing off a very small portion of your natural enamel – only about 2mm. This is about the thickness of a contact lens and allows your teeth to have enough room for the veneers. They will then take an impression of your teeth and send it to a local dental lab to fabricate your veneers, and you will wear a temporary set during this time.

Once the veneers are ready, your doctor will use a composite resin to firmly bond them to your teeth. The resin provides a very secure hold and only takes a few minutes to completely harden. After that, your new smile is ready to be shown to the world! Simple brushing and flossing can keep your veneers looking like new for years to come. You basically need to take care of them just like your natural teeth, so avoid chewing extremely hard foods and always wear a mouthguard while playing sports.

Every set of veneers is custom made for each patient. This allows people to choose the degree of change they want, whether it be subtle or dramatic. A personal touch is that we will take the extra time to make sure your veneers are perfectly shaded to match the rest of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers have helped many people get the smile they’ve always wanted with just one simple procedure. If you think they might be the right solution for you, please give us a call today.

What patients say about us

Here's some kind words from a few of our happy patients.


It was my first time here, and I was blew away by the staff, these are the nicest people ever, I had a warm welcome upon entering and the hospitality did not stop. What a great staff. If you need a dentist I highly recommend you to give this business a try. My hygienist was the best, and I felt really comfortable with her. I had went to a dentist up the road first and I wasn’t treated the same upon my entry to their establishment so I remembered talking to a ladie that worked at this dental office sometime back, I drove down the street until I saw this office and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for a great dental experience.

Front desk is always very kind and helpful. Michele is great, best and most thorough cleanings I’ve ever received. Had to get a crown today, Dr Jancy and Jessica were absolutely terrific. Most painless and comfortable experience at any dentist office I’ve ever been to. Highly recommend

I absolutely love Michelle. If you are looking for a dental hygienist, pick her! Dr Parkerson is very thorough and I am pleased with the abutment and crown she placed. She was very caring and made sure I was not in any pain during the procedure. They are the best!
