Serving patients of Erwin, Jonesborough, and Greeneville, TN
Receiving a veneer from the cosmetic dental professionals at Tusculum Dental Care can improve the way your teeth look in no time.
Made of beautiful dental porcelain, these veneers can be used to resolve any of these cosmetic dental issues:
- Cracked, chipped or slightly fractured teeth
- Correcting the appearance of slight crookedness across several teeth or a single twisted tooth
- Concealing a gap between teeth
- Teeth that are too short or misshapen
- Stained teeth
Your Greeneville cosmetic dentists at Tusculum Dental Care offer two types of veneers—porcelain and DuraThin.
These veneers are made of the same top-grade dental porcelain used to fabricate many of our other dental restorations, such as bridges and crowns. This porcelain is a durable and beautiful material that reflects light in the same way that your natural tooth enamel does.
Receiving porcelain veneers involves two separate appointments to our office. At the first visit, you will receive a local anesthetic, after which the cosmetic dentist will remove a small portion of the tooth structure to make room for the veneers. Then, digital impressions will be taken of your mouth. These impressions are used as a model to construct your new veneers. This initial visit concludes with receiving temporary restorations to cover each tooth that has been prepared for veneers. At the next visit, your permanent veneers will be installed.
Porcelain veneers are more durable than their composite counterparts. They will not become stained by the consumption of certain potentially discoloring substances like wine, tea, coffee, and tobacco usage. Also, installing a porcelain veneer is minimally invasive, as it requires removing less of the tooth structure.
DuraThin veneers are one of the techniques at the current forefront of cosmetic dental science. Only licensed DuraThin dentists are allowed to install these veneers, which consist of an extremely thin piece of dental porcelain. Because of its unique construction, a DuraThin veneer can be bonded directly to the front of teeth without having to remove any existing tooth structure as part of the installation process. Plus, DuraThin veneers can be installed in a single visit to our office.
No matter what type of veneer you choose, your cosmetic dentist at Tusculum Dental Care will match the veneer to the shape and color of your other natural, healthy teeth, and also install it with care to maintain the proper alignment of your bite.
A veneer can correct several of the aesthetic issues listed above, at the same time. Veneers can be applied to a single tooth or placed on several teeth that are adjacent to one another in the mouth.
