Get your dream smile with cosmetic porcelain veneers with Knoxville, TN area dentist
Porcelain veneers are a fantastic solution to stained, crooked, or chipped teeth. In fact, our cosmetic dentists in Knoxville, TN will often use them to help you get your dream smile! With veneers and other aesthetic treatments available at Sequoyah Dental Arts, patients in the community can quickly address common imperfections.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are restorations that are used to achieve a more beautiful smile. These aesthetic restorations are made of porcelain, a material that closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin but provide optimum coverage. Drs. Foncea and McCall use porcelain veneers in many different situations:
- To disguise crooked teeth
- To restore chipped or cracked teeth
- To address a gap between teeth
- To cover permanently stained teeth
- To provide better shape and size to a tooth
What can I expect from the veneers process?
The process of obtaining porcelain veneers often requires approximately three office visits. The first appointment is a consultation during which the dentist will evaluate the smile and decide if porcelain veneers are the best solution. This is the planning appointment where our dental team can show patients the results they could achieve with porcelain veneers. Alternative options may be discussed as well, so patients are well-educated on the solution they choose. During the second visit, preparations are completed. Preparation may require the dentist to file down a thin portion of the enamel on the front of the tooth. Then, the dentist takes impressions of these teeth and sends them to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the final veneers. A temporary veneer may be put in place in the meantime. Once the final veneer returns to Sequoyah Dental Arts, patients visit a third time to have the temporary veneer removed, and the final veneer permanently bonded in place.
Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?
The best patients for the creation and placement of porcelain veneers are patients with an otherwise healthy smile, free from decay and periodontal disease, and those who are seeking a reliable and affordable way to cover imperfections of their smile. Patients should consult with the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts to ensure that veneers are the best option for their needs. Our team may also educate patients on alternatives to help them make a knowledgeable decision regarding their cosmetic desires. Drs. Foncea and McCall also have manyl before and after photos for patients to view to see the work completed for past patients of the office.
