Veneers Before and After Knoxville
When first impressions matter, it is important to be confident about your smile. There is no reason to feel shy about having stained, chipped or broken teeth. Contact Dr. Foncea’s dental office in Knoxville about your concerns and we will walk you through the options available to you. If porcelain veneers are right for you, we will be happy to give you a reason to smile proudly.
A porcelain veneer is a thin covering placed over your tooth to protect it from further damage or improve its cosmetic appearance. Because porcelain is a durable material that can be formed to reflect light like a natural tooth, wearing porcelain veneers can change the apparent shape, color and size of your teeth. This drastically improves your smile without giving strangers the impression you have had a procedure done. People who know you will recognize the difference, having seen the transformation made possible by the veneers, before and after. In Knoxville, Dr. Foncea’s practice gives you the assurance that your smile will be the envy of your friends.
Placing porcelain veneers is very effective and can be quite a conservative procedure. When the veneers are correctly bonded onto the enamel of the teeth, they have the potential to last twenty years or more. Patients must continue to observe normal oral hygiene practices after having the veneer, this includes brushing their teeth and using dental floss. However, they should be careful not to put undue pressure on the veneers by using their teeth to do atypical tasks like tearing plastic bags open. These actions could easily cause the veneers to chip or break.
Veneers are created in several steps. These include the initial consultation, during which we discuss the procedure and its suitability. Next, we measure your teeth and make an impression of them. Subsequently, we remove a thin enamel layer from your teeth. Finally, when we put the veneers in place, the transformation is dramatic. We take photographs taken to document the dramatic change made possible by the veneers; your very own before and after story.
