What Are Dental Veneers?
Crafted from highly durable dental porcelain, these wafer-thin shells are adhered to the front surface of each tooth to cover the natural enamel and create a completely new appearance. They can enhance the shape, color, and/or size of any teeth with visible imperfections. Many patients who have received dental veneers rave about their renewed feeling of self-confidence when walking out of the dental office with a brand-new smile.
Each veneer is uniquely created to fit perfectly over the natural tooth, and is permanently attached by Dr. Haney in his office, to give you the perfect smile you’ve always desired. Think of it as a total makeover for each individual tooth!
A Wide Variety of Benefits
Porcelain veneers can correct many types of imperfections. If your smile has a bothersome tooth that appears bigger or shorter than the rest, veneers can give your smile a more even, balanced appearance. Similarly, they can correct chipped teeth and overly pointy canines.
If you don’t have the time or energy to fix your crowded grin with orthodontic treatments, talk to Dr. Haney about using dental veneers to make teeth appear straighter. Veneers can change the shape and size of a tooth; therefore, they can also straighten the teeth that stand out in your smile.
Gaps are easily corrected with veneers, as well. Some people confidently rock a gapped smile, but for others a gap may be unsightly and embarrassing. Porcelain veneers can fill in any gaps without making teeth look bigger. Another benefit is that your dental veneers will resist stains better than your natural enamel, allowing you to indulge in your favorite dark colored beverages without having to worry about on-going whitening treatments.
The best part is that porcelain veneers let you decide how your new smile will look. Share your smile goals with Dr. Haney, and he will help you design a smile that achieves your aesthetic goals. You can select a hue that is just a few shades lighter than your natural enamel, or go with the brightest white available. You can either retain some of the qualities that make your smile unique, or create an even, flawless arch—the choice is yours.
All This in Just Two Office Visits?
With so many benefits, it may seem impossible that Dr. Haney can accomplish this in just two dental visits. Not only is it possible, but Dr. Haney has a great deal of experience with this procedure, and knows how to make it easy and convenient for you.
At the first visit, Dr. Haney will examine your teeth and ask about the issues you would like to correct. For the best results, be honest about what you dislike about your smile, and feel free to bring pictures to show us examples of smiles you would like to emulate. After assessing the health of your teeth, he will shape the flawed teeth and gently resurface the enamel. This step is necessary to ensure the veneers will adhere securely to the teeth. Next, he will take dental impressions, which are used to create a wax model of your teeth. These materials will be sent to an off-site laboratory where your custom veneers will be crafted. Finally, you will receive a set of temporary veneers to wear while you wait for the permanent veneers. These veneers will not be as nice as the final product, but are necessary to protect your enamel while the final veneers are being made.
About a week later, you will have a second appointment, during which time Dr. Haney will permanently bond the final veneers to your teeth. This will not take long, and you’ll leave the office with the smile you have always dreamed of.
Dental veneers are an easy solution for the imperfections that keep you from loving your smile. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Haney in Knoxville, TN. Call 865-693-6886 or visit us online today.
