Are There Any Alternatives To Porcelain Veneers?
Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that allows Dr. Foncea to provide his patients with aesthetically beautiful smiles. Working together with his patients, he can determine the best course of action for improving a smile. Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville offers a variety of cosmetic dental procedures and restorations to change smiles. One type of restorations is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a common restoration. They are made with thin shells of porcelain that are customized to match a patient’s existing teeth. They are bonded over the top of a natural tooth after minimal tooth structure has been removed for a tight seal. Porcelain veneers are often considered for patients who want a fast, easy way to improve their smiles, and for those who are looking for a more long-term solution to dental concerns. Porcelain veneers can address a number of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Discolored or permanently stained teeth
- Teeth that are broken, chipped, or cracked
- Extremely short teeth
- Crooked teeth or misaligned teeth
Dr. Foncea of Knoxville’s Sequoyah Dental Arts uses porcelain veneers to fix these common issues. However, veneers are not the only way to address these concerns. Commonly considered alternatives to porcelain veneers include dental crowns, dental bonding, teeth whitening and bleaching, and orthodontics. Dr. Foncea will consult with patients to determine which solution is best for them. Patients may not be viable candidates for some restorations or procedures, so scheduling an examination and consultation is necessary for deciding on the proper plan of action to take in order to rejuvenate a patient’s smile. Porcelain veneers may be one of many considerations for patients.
