Only a very small percentage of the population possesses teeth that look strong and healthy forever. No matter how well you take care of your pearly whites, daily brushing, chewing, biting, and grinding can wear down even the most beautiful smiles. Genetics can also play a role in how your teeth look. Some people simply have softer or thinner enamel that shows flaws and imperfections more easily. If your teeth are starting to look ragged, chipped, or translucent at the edges, these problems will only get worse as you get older. By the time you’ve lived a few decades (or more), your teeth may wind up looking worn and well-used, even when perfectly healthy.
What can you do about an old-looking smile? You have two options. You can either resign yourself to fate and think, “I’m old now, I guess my smile has to look old, too.” Or you can do something to make your smile look fabulous again! The fastest way to makeover your smile is with Knoxville dental veneers from Dr. Jack Haney.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers are small tooth-shaped shells that fit over the front of the teeth that show when you smile. They are extremely thin, so they give your teeth a new façade without adding any bulk or heaviness. Veneers are permanently attached to the teeth, as well, so you don’t have to worry about taking them out or putting them back in. For all intents and purposes, they replace your imperfect teeth with a better-looking, new version of your unique smile.
Many patients love veneers because they correct multiple cosmetic flaws all at once. If you’ve ever wanted to start fresh with a brand-new set of teeth, veneers make this possible. They let you design the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
What do you dislike about your smile?
- Stubborn stains that don’t respond to whitening treatments
- Receding gum tissue
- Jagged edges
- Irregularly sized teeth
- Teeth that look crowded together
- Teeth with obvious gaps
Whatever you don’t like about the appearance of your smile, veneers can correct. The best part is that it only takes a couple of weeks to get your new smile!
A Safe, Permanent Makeover for Your Smile
Not only are Knoxville dental veneers safe, they can actually protect and preserve weakened teeth. If your teeth are starting to suffer from enamel erosion, veneers can stop this process and make sure your teeth retain their structure. Acidic foods and beverages can wear away enamel, but veneers cover and protect the teeth to prevent this process from advancing.
One of the more appealing features of dental veneers is the fact that they are a permanent improvement to your smile. Once you have veneers attached to the teeth, they will stay on indefinitely. Each veneer is designed to fit perfectly over each one of your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about them coming loose or falling off. The official lifespan for veneers is about ten years, but you will get more miles out of your new smile if you care for it properly. This means you shouldn’t use your veneers to open bottles(!) or chew hard non-food items. Use them sensibly and your veneers may last up to 17 years or more.
