Dentist blends skill, artistry to design porcelain veneers that look and feel like beautiful, natural teeth
Porcelain veneers are one of the most coveted cosmetic dental procedures. They are also the “secret” to many celebrities’ stunning smiles. These thin layers of porcelain are prepared and applied to the front surfaces of the teeth. Once secured to the natural tooth structure, veneers disguise cosmetic imperfections such as small chips and minor cracks. Additionally, Drs Pablo Foncea and Mariko McCall design and apply versatile veneers from the office of Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville, Tennessee, to:
- Close gaps between teeth for a more uniform appearance and even spacing
- Cover up discolored teeth that do not respond adequately to powerful professional teeth bleaching (i.e., tetracycline stains)
- Reshape teeth with irregular contours, which detract from a balanced smile
- Add height to a worn-down or overly short tooth, in turn restoring or achieving good proportions with other teeth
While many dentists near and far offer porcelain veneers, do not trust your treatment to just any dentist that markets this popular procedure. Veneers require an exceptional level of technical skill and artistry. As such, they are among the most “technique-specific” dental procedures available to today’s patients.
Actual Patient Results
Uncompromising quality, planning
To create a tooth structure that looks and feels like the “real deal,” we must collect as much information about the characteristics of your teeth and facial features as possible. No detail is too small when creating truly custom veneers. We then apply this information toward the exact design and planning of each veneer. For instance, our dentists account for the overall size and shape of your mouth and face. We can design and place veneers that do not jut out too much or that do not look too big and oversized on your face and within your smile. This same notion applies to our precision approach to color-matching the veneers.
We don’t just account for the color of the surrounding natural teeth, but we also factor in your complexion, the whites of your eyes, and other personal characteristics that inform a natural tooth color. Teeth with veneers, after all, should look like natural and healthy teeth! They shouldn’t look “fake” or “plastic.”
We use the highest quality materials and conservative techniques to fabricate and bond your veneers to support a natural appearance further. Generally, the more natural tooth structure we can preserve, the better the treatment outcomes and satisfaction that our patients get from the veneer experience and the appearance, feel, and function of their improved teeth over the long haul.
