Transform your smile with porcelain veneers treatment in Knoxville
Cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth can leave you feeling less than enthusiastic about your smile. We all know that our smiles say a lot about us. They are important in first impressions and can make us seem friendlier upon first approach. Treatment with veneers is a great way for patients dealing with imperfections to achieve the smile of their dreams. At Sequoyah Dental Arts, we use porcelain veneers to help mask a variety of imperfections, leaving patients with a vibrant, beautiful smile.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of ceramic porcelain that are permanently adhered to the front of teeth. They are able to cover a variety of flaws and spacing issues for a natural-looking smile.
Placement of veneers
Veneers are typically placed in two to three visits. In the first visit, the tooth will be prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel. This allows for better adhesion of the veneer and ensures they do not stick out too far. Digital impressions are taken to help determine the correct color and shape of your custom fabricated veneers. These images are sent offsite to a laboratory where the veneers are created. Temporary veneers can be placed to give you time to become adjusted to them. You will return for a subsequent appointment once your permanent veneers are ready. We are then able to make any necessary adjustments to ensure proper fit and comfort.
Benefits of veneers
Veneers are an extremely versatile cosmetic modification as they can mask anything from cracks or chips, to discoloration or improper spacing. The porcelain strips can be matched to the color of existing teeth to make sure they appear natural. Veneers can be used on a single tooth or on all teeth for a complete smile makeover. Porcelain is also resistant to stain, which makes them stay beautiful looking for a long time.
