The benefits of veneers for residents in the Knoxville, TN area
If you are tired of looking at chipped, cracked, or stained teeth in the mirror, porcelain veneers from Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville, TN may just be the right solution for you. Veneers are a versatile cosmetic modification that can correct a wide array of minor imperfections in the teeth. Veneers are often preferred by patients who want a show-stopping smile.
Veneers are ultra-thin strips of porcelain that are bonded to the front of teeth. They are custom fabricated and can be matched to the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth.
To prepare your teeth for veneers, a thin layer of the natural tooth enamel will need to be removed. Impressions are taken and sent to a lab where your veneers will be custom created by an experienced technician. Once they are ready, the veneers are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth.
Many patients wonder why veneers are made of porcelain. It is because porcelain is a strong, durable ceramic material that is biocompatible with the gums. It is highly resistant to stains and possesses many of the same characteristics as tooth enamel, including translucency. Porcelain reflects light similarly to tooth enamel, allowing it to blend fluidly in your smile.
Veneers are a fantastic alternative to tooth whitening to give patients a vibrant, white smile quickly. They can also help fix problems with spacing or alignment. They are usually placed in three separate visits and do not require any specialized care. With proper daily oral hygiene and twice-yearly visits to the dentist’s office, veneers can last a lifetime.
