For many patients in the area of Knoxville, TN, it can be a big challenge to enhance the appearance of their smiles if they are dealing with severe imperfections and blemishes on the teeth near the front of the smile. Tooth discoloration, malformed teeth, chipped enamel, and misalignment can all negatively impact one’s look, and in some cases, require more than one treatment to address. Instead, custom-made dental veneers from South Knox Dental can provide an affordable and effective solution to dental repairs.
What is a dental veneer?
Dental veneers, also referred to as porcelain veneers, are thin shells that are designed to mimic the appearance of a natural tooth. These very thin restorations are custom-colored and shaped for patients to ensure they seamlessly integrate with their existing teeth. Veneers are bonded in place over the front of a tooth to cover it entirely and provide a more aesthetic appearance. Because porcelain veneers are used to completely transform the surface of a tooth, they can correct several different issues at once while maintaining the tooth’s natural structure and health. This is because the front of the tooth is buffed to allow for placement of veneer, but requires far less removal of natural tooth enamel than less conservative methods such as dental crowns.
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are:
- Strong and durable
- Easy to place
- Simple to care for
