Dental veneers are a popular option if you’re considering a smile makeover. But did you know there are different types to choose from? Dr. Edwards, Dr. Prince, and Dr. Myers at Scott Edwards DDS are here to help you navigate your choices. We’re conveniently located to serve you with Midtown and East Memphis offices. This blog aims to shed light on the various types of veneers so you can make an informed decision that’s perfect for your pearly whites.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are slender, customized coverings designed to fit over your teeth. They’re crafted from medical-grade materials, ensuring they’re durable and natural-looking. Veneers give you a multi-purpose solution that can address various dental concerns, such as stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth. 

The process usually involves a couple of visits to one of our offices. First, a small amount of enamel is removed to make room for the veneer. Then, an impression of your tooth is taken to create a surface that fits just right. Once ready, the shell is bonded to your tooth, instantly enhancing your smile.

At Scott Edwards DDS, our team offers expert consultation and application of dental veneers. With our state-of-the-art technology and years of experience, you can trust us to help you achieve a pristine smile that looks great and feels comfortable. Whether in Midtown or East Memphis, our team is ready to help you discover the transformative power of dental veneers.

Porcelain Veneers

Made from high-quality porcelain, these veneers are known for their durability and natural appearance. They’re resistant to staining so that you can enjoy your favorite foods and drinks without worry. However, getting porcelain veneers is a commitment. Your dentist will need to remove a small layer of your tooth enamel to make room for the front, making the process irreversible.

Dr. Edwards, Dr. Prince, and Dr. Myers are skilled in applying porcelain veneers. We use advanced dental technology to ensure a precise fit and a seamless blend with your natural teeth. While porcelain veneers may have a higher price tag, their longevity and aesthetic appeal often make them a worthwhile investment for many of our patients in Midtown and East Memphis.

Different Types of Veneers

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are the fast and budget-friendly superheroes of the smile world. They’re sculpted right onto your teeth in just one visit. No waiting, no multiple appointments. It’s like a smile makeover in the time it takes to watch a movie! But, like all superheroes, they have their kryptonite. They’re less long-lasting than porcelain veneers, so you should pop back in for a touch-up now and then.

At our office, we’re not just about quick fixes but the right fix for you. We’ll sit down and listen to what you want for your smile. Whether it’s a subtle tweak or a full-on transformation, we’ve got you covered. 

Composite veneers could be your match if you’re looking for a way to spruce up your smile without breaking the bank or your schedule. Swing by our office for a chat; we’ll help you determine if they’re the right choice for your pearly whites. With composite veneers, you can walk out the door with a smile ready for its close-up, all in a single appointment.


Lumineers are the featherweights of the veneer world—super thin yet effective. Think of them as the contact lenses for your teeth. What sets them apart? Usually, shaving off your tooth enamel is unnecessary, making the whole process easier on you. But remember, they’re not as opaque as traditional porcelain veneers. So, if you’ve got serious tooth discoloration, they might not be your best bet.

Our dental pros are experts in crafting these ultra-thin wonders. We use top-notch tech to ensure your lumineers fit like a glove and look as natural as your morning smile. 

So, if you’re after a less invasive way to jazz up your grin, lumineers could be your ticket to a brighter smile without the fuss. Visit us at Scott Edwards DDS to discuss if lumineers are the right fit for you. We’ll help you sort through the pros and cons so you can make a choice you’ll be happy to show off.

Removable Veneers

Removable veneers are like the Swiss Army knife of cosmetic dentistry. They’re versatile, easy to use, and give you a quick smile makeover. Unlike traditional veneers, which are permanently bonded to your teeth, these can be snapped on and off whenever you like. This makes them a fantastic option if you need more time to commit to a permanent change or have a big event where you want to look your best.

We are your go-to experts for all things veneer-related. They’ll sit down with you at our Midtown or East Memphis locations to discuss whether removable veneers fit your lifestyle and needs. They’ll cover the nitty-gritty, like how these veneers are made from high-quality dental resin, making them less durable than their permanent counterparts but still effective for short-term use.

Another perk? Removable veneers don’t require any grinding down of your natural teeth. That means no irreversible changes and no lengthy procedures. It’s a win-win if you’re looking for a quick and reversible way to enhance your smile.
