Cosmetic dentistry solutions such as veneers can improve Knoxville smiles
Knoxville area patients seeking quality cosmetic dentistry solutions are welcome to contact the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts. Our practice is dedicated to assisting patients in designing the smile of their dreams. We have an aesthetic eye with all we do and want patients to love the way they look. Imperfections of the smile may detract from its appearance. These imperfections may include fractures, permanent staining, gaps between teeth, excessive gum tissue, and misalignment. Our professionals offer a myriad of ways for patients to address these issues. One of our most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are restorations made to disguise problems within the smile. This is done by placing these thin facings over the front of teeth. The veneers are bonded in place and provide a completely new look for the natural tooth. The placement of veneers does not protect teeth from periodontal disease and tooth decay, so patients are encouraged to continue to take care of their smile with brushing, flossing, and regular examinations at our practice. The natural tooth is still there – just behind the veneer.
Preparation for veneers starts with filing of the natural enamel. Impressions are created and used by dental ceramists to fabricate the new veneers to fit precisely over the natural teeth. The process from start to finish takes approximately two weeks in most cases.
Veneers are a common choice for patients who want long-term improvement of problem teeth. Just one or two teeth can be covered with veneers for a drastically enhanced look. These restorations can last decades when patients maintain their smiles’ health and wellness with regular dental visits. Avoiding the development of cavities and periodontal disease extends the lifespan of veneers.
Knoxville area residents unhappy with the aesthetics of their smiles are encouraged to consider the benefits of using porcelain veneers for beautiful, natural-looking coverage. These restorations are readily available at Sequoyah Dental Arts. Our team can be contacted by calling 865 973-9899 to schedule a consultation. This is the ideal way to learn about restorative solutions available in our practice while discussing with a professional the best possible way of enhancing the smile.
