Farragut dentist describes why veneers are a popular solution for imperfections
While Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts in the Farragut area offers an amazing selection of cosmetic solutions for his patients, he is very fond of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are common aesthetic restorations used for coverage of imperfections on the natural teeth. They can be custom-made to match the rest of the smile and are bonded over the teeth as a way of disguising the problem. Porcelain veneers can be used on teeth that are:
- Unusually shaped
- Permanently stained
Dr. Pablo Foncea is a cosmetic dentist who believes in providing veneers for those who want a fast way of addressing these concerns. Veneers are made using impressions of the natural tooth after preparations have been done, which often includes the filing down of the tooth to remove a thin portion of enamel. An outside ceramist fabricates the veneer form these impressions and creates them to match the color and overall appearance of the existing teeth for seamless integration. Once sent back to Dr. Pablo Foncea, patients attend a second appointment in the dental office for the bonding of the porcelain veneer over the tooth. The entire process can take about one to two weeks but allows individuals the ability to quickly and effectively address problem areas of the smile. Porcelain crowns can last many years with proper care and maintenance and can be replaced if necessary over time.
At Sequoyah Dental Arts, porcelain veneers are not the only way to address these concerns. Dr. Pablo Foncea also offers orthodontics (such as Invisalign aligner therapy), dental cosmetic bonding, professional-grade tooth whitening services, and even dental crowns. All of these have their own advantages over others, but every patient’s situation is unique and requires a custom solution. Speaking with him during an initial consultation appointment and first examination is the best way to determine if porcelain veneers are most appropriate for your specific needs or if you are better suited for other solutions available through his practice.
