Dr. Gary Kinder has decades of experience with porcelain veneers at his Knoxville, TN, practice.

He will determine your candidacy for the procedure and how best to achieve your goals. He will also explain our financing solutions that can help make your dream smile an easily affordable reality.
Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
If you are in good dental health, but you want to improve minor to moderate cosmetic flaws, you are probably a candidate for porcelain veneers. This treatment is an effective way to address:
- Small gaps between teeth
- Other forms of misalignment that do not affect the overall balance of your bite
- Misshapen teeth
- Abnormally small teeth
- Stains that do not respond to traditional teeth whitening
Dr. Kinder will need to remove some enamel to make room for the porcelain veneers. You usually cannot receive veneers on teeth with fillings. If veneers are not right for you, we can usually recommend an alternative cosmetic dentistry solution. Dental bonding is a popular procedure which is more conservative and affordable.

Step-by-Step Veneers Treatment
Dr. Kinder will provide a detailed consultation before treatment. He will inquire about your goals for treatment, and he will design your veneers specifically to meet those objectives. Among other things, he will consider the shape of your teeth, the color of your smile, and the contours of your gum line.
