Knoxville area dentist describes an effective tooth discoloration treatment
There are times in which Dr. Pablo Foncea sees patients in the Knoxville area who are seeking an effective tooth discoloration treatment. Natural tooth enamel can darken and stain due to foods, drinks, and medications. Smoking may also contribute to a darkening of the teeth. While many patients consider tooth whitening services through Sequoyah Dental Arts, there are situations in which this treatment is just not enough to improve deep, set-in stains in the natural tooth enamel. When bleaching the teeth is not achieving the desired results, patients may be better candidates for porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are utilized by trained dentists as a way of covering areas of concern. These thin restorations are bonded over the front surface of a natural tooth to change its appearance while looking natural and beautiful.
Porcelain veneers may be the best option for patients who are interested in quickly addressing areas of tooth discoloration. They are fabricated using impressions of the natural teeth, and can be completed in just a few weeks. Patients will need at least two dental appointments for treatment. The teeth are prepared and molded during the first appointment and the veneers are placed during the second. A consultation appointment may be required beforehand to see if patients are proper candidates for veneers.
Veneers are effective at covering many concerns—not just discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers are great for gaps between teeth, uneven, worn, broken, or unusually shaped teeth. Patients can improve a minor change with porcelain veneers or completely change their smile—the possibilities are endless!
Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts is proud to offer veneers among his many cosmetic dentistry solutions. Veneers are fast, affordable, and effective at dramatically changing the appearance of a smile, and are commonly used for adult patients interested in long-term solutions to tooth discoloration, breakage, and other aesthetic concerns.
