When do Knoxville patients consider teeth veneers?
Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, patients can enjoy a variety of restorative treatments, including teeth veneers. Knoxville area residents can visit Sequoyah Dental Arts to allow Dr. Foncea to improve their smile with these amazing porcelain restorations. Patients who are struggling with imperfections in their smile can have teeth veneers placed to improve the way they look instantly.
Dr. Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts is proud to offer affordable, effective restorations such as porcelain veneers. These restorative pieces are used to cover aesthetically flawed natural teeth. They are made of porcelain, and are extremely thin. However, they can be extremely strong, thanks to the nature of porcelain, and look completely natural. This is because the appearance of porcelain strongly resembles the look of natural tooth enamel.
Although there are many treatments available in cosmetic dentistry, many times a patient may consider the use of teeth veneers because of their easy application and longevity. Knoxville area residents with chipped or cracked teeth can use veneers instead of dental bonding or dental crowns. Veneers are also the treatment of choice when addressing a permanently stained or discolored tooth. Though teeth whitening techniques may be used initially, there are situations in which a tooth will not respond to these bleaching efforts. This is when Dr. Foncea may recommend a veneer instead. When a single misaligned tooth is affecting a smile, veneers can be used to cover the misalignment. This is a wonderful alternative to months of orthodontic treatment to straighten a single tooth.
Veneers are fast and effective in addressing these kinds of imperfections. Patients can enjoy veneers in just a few weeks. Initial impressions are taken of the teeth, and these impressions are sent to an outside laboratory for the creation of the restoration. When the restoration is sent to Dr. Foncea, the patient returns to the dental office for the placement of the veneer. This process takes approximately two weeks, and allows patients to walk out of the dental office on their second visit with a transformed and beautiful smile.
